Go To Meet Your Waterproof, Affordable Summer Watch
Frankly speaking, there will be no shortage of rich dudes at the beach this summer flexing some expensive dive watches—after all, the things are made to get wet. However, there's still hope for guys who want to keep track of how long they've been in the water, but don't have thousands to spend on a tricked-out Seamaster or Submariner.
That hope comes in the form of Timex's new Expedition Scout watch, an outdoorsman's timepiece if ever there was one. The white indices are easy to read on the all-black dial, and the hefty 40mm brass case is water-resistant up to 50 meters deep—which, if you're still on the English system, is a depth of over 160 feet.
A number of dive-watch brands can boast that their timepieces are water-resistant up to 1,000 feet. But to tell the truth: The guys who spend a ton of money on their watches aren't diving that deep. And if all you want is a hard-wearing watch that will survive a summer of mere splashing around, look no further.
