Sailing watch kit with a black bay vibe
A classic dive watch look never gets old. The key component of a dive watch is a legible bezel & dial combo paired with generous lume application so that we can quickly tell time with a glance in all conditions. Tudor popularized the dive watch - nato strap combo over the years with their black bay line, and this style has gained strong traction among the sailing crowd. Think weekend, think a casual but refined dress code... pair that with a diver on a nato strap you have the perfect combo for a yacht trip.
At 41mm this is a very good men's watch size. This tool watch is decorated with the quality finishes of a premium dive watch, making this a perfect office watch as well when paired with a leather strap. Traditionally speaking, dive watches are one of the military/tool watches that had higher requirements, as the ability to tell time underwater helped divers survive and navigate.
