If you’re the sort of man who loves heading into the wild in search of adventure, you’ll need a watch that can keep pace with your endeavours. The guys at Huckberry have some awesome timepieces which have been purpose built for the adventure inclined. Check out our pick of 6 of the best adventure watches for men below:

Seiko Prospex “Arnie” Watch ($550)

This is a modern interpretation of the 1982 Hybrid Diver’s Watch and fans of Predator and Commando are likely to recognise the ace looking Seiko Prospex “Arnie” Watch ($550) as the Austrian behemoth wore it in those 80s-tastic movies. The solar technology powers the battery, charging when exposed to light as you wear it and the digital readout can display a different time zone, date, battery levels, and operate the alarms and stopwatch functions. A great timepiece for adventure lovers. ($550)


Timex 80 Watch ($59)

Affordability and vintage vibes are the stand out allures of the excellent looking Timex 80 Watch ($59). It expertly pairs Timex reliability and affordability with a retro-cool ’80s design that we’re loving here at The Coolector. It has an easy-read digital display that gives you time, date, alarm, and timer functions and a water resistance up to 30 metres for any underwater adventures you’ve got planned for spring and summer. Great value for money and aesthetics. ($59)


Marathon Arctic MSAR Watch ($700)

Most commonly known as the “TSAR (Tritium Search and Rescue),” the Marathon Diver’s Quartz boasts a supremely accurate high-torque Swiss quartz movement, and is fully ISO 6425-compliant, which means that it meets strict international standards for water resistance, robustness, and dial legibility—the latter of which is provided by tritium illumination on the dial and hands, which produce a steady glow for up to 25 years. After the ideal underwater adventure watch, look no further than the Marathon Arctic MSAR Watch ($700). It’s not going to let you down wherever your adventures take you. ($700)


Centric Instruments The Lightwell Field Watch Mark III ($200)

This ultra reliable watch boasts a super simple, uncomplicated style which takes its design inspiration from mid-century field watches. The case of the Centric Instruments Lightwell Field Watch ($200) is made using surgical grade 316L stainless steel and it is powered by Seiko’s solar-quartz movement with a solar panel beneath the dial that continuously charges the watch with both natural and artificial light. The lens is treated with multiple layers of anti-reflective coating for better clarity and the hands and markers are coated with Super-LumiNova BGW9 for low-light visibility. ($200)


Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic Watch ($1005)

This is a remastered version of the original Nautoscaph, which was worn by Richard Dreyfuss in Jaws. Vintage vibes abound with the Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic Watch ($1005) with its streamlined construction and classic dive style. It ships strapped with a stainless steel bracelet with a subtle-etched shark on the clasp and it has an anti-magnetic, shock-resistant, and water-resistant construction with unidirectional bezel for added dive time safety. Adventure essential. ($1005)


Luminox Scott Cassell Deep Dive Watch ($382)

In 1992, the US Navy SEALS went looking for a more reliable watch for night missions and the watchmakers at Luminox definitely delivered. Partnering with maritime commandos, they’ve been refining and toughening their Navy Seal series ever since, giving rise to a watch that’s not just an accessory but required gear. Entirely Swiss-made, the Scott Cassell Deep Dive Watch from Luminox ($382) has precision quartz movement, superior construction, and 24/7 visibility with a triton-tube lume that lasts for 25 years.
