The Active Watch
These are great for those who lead active lifestyles. They’re built to withstand the demands of outdoor activities, both on land and at sea. Some are crafted entirely or partially in ceramic or titanium, making them durable but lightweight. If you prefer robust-looking ones, there are those made in stainless steel, either matched with thick link metal bracelets, leather and other breathable, easy to clean and interchangeable alternatives like rubber, NATO-style and canvas straps. Design-wise, they can be elaborate like functions-packed chronographs or more minimalist like dive watches.
These watches typically have large dials, often between 38 mm and 45 mm, and feature large numerals and luminescent hands for legibility in all situations. For the same reason, they often have high-contrast dials, where white or light-coloured numerals are placed against dark or black dial plates. While mostly rugged in appearance, these watches are versatile enough to be worn on your adventures, at work, weekend getaways and even at more formal occasions.
