It helps that these are well specced sports watches that offer lots of bang for your buck. And there’s not a lot of buck involved at all. The retail price on these is $525, and for that you get the aforementioned Eco-Drive movement (a great grab and go option if ever there was one), dual time capability, a shock and magnetism resistant stainless steel case, 200 meters of water resistance, and a sapphire crystal. At 44mm, this is a large watch by almost any standard, but I think that’s part of the charm of the thing. This is not a season for discretion or watches that can be hidden neatly under a shirt cuff. Besides, those cuffed shirts should be put away for the season.
