    Let's see your Field/Adventure Watches (non-diver, non-pilot, non-quartz)

    Hi All,

    A new genre of watches has really grown on me lately, starting with the Tudor North Flag (bracelet):

    Really love it. Unfortunately I'm going through a teenage rebellious phase with luxury Swiss brands so I became attracted to some nice Hamies:

    Even the Tudor Ranger:

    But I feel that it's a little too minimalistic for its price.

    I'm not really sure how to define what I'm looking for, is it the big, bold font used on dials that define a field watch? Or is it the strap? But I really like the North Flag on bracelet so it can't be the strap. Can you recommend something along those lines?

    Not really interested in a quartz at the moment because I have an awesome GShock for some real heavy duty work or play.

    Better yet, let's see yours!

    I recently sold my Omega which was probably the closest thing I've had lately to a field watch.

    Field watches originated as civilian versions of military watches for outdoor activities - they started out generally small, light, durable, highly legible, and usually inexpensive. Hamilton and VSA have them in their blood and many other brands offer variations on the theme. There's always some to be found in Seiko's huge line up:



    The Archimede Outdoor Protect is another modern take on it:

    GlennO - I love the Dynamic. I've been close a few times to buying the 3-hand and also the chronograph version.

    That Victorinox Field Artillery is very nice. It's clean and straightforward but still reasonably individualistic. Their site shows a gold-tone case, but the color is more like that of 10K gold instead of 18K or better...softer. More like a rich Champagne color. With brown dial on light or brown strap...this watch practically screams leather NATO strap to me...awesome. List price is very reasonable.

    I'm considering getting something *exactly* like this, too. This may well check off every box except (barely) size. It's 40 mm, and I personally would prefer *just* a bit smaller. That said, I've got some 40s; it's an OK size.

    UPDATE: Saw a very good price. Ordered.

    This Oris ProPilot is probably more of a "pilot" watch, but I'll throw it in to the mix anyway. I think the bezel adds interest, and I believe they offer a 40mm version...

    Edit...I see that faiz already posted it. Missed the pic first time theough.
