Never mind brands like Rolex and Cartier: Those are for Yankee sailor boys from Nantucket. No, you want the ultimate, yet most badass-looking (and sounding) timepiece. Look no further, soldier.
Consider the Breitling Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow (see? uber macho-sounding indeed!) watch the equivalent of a James Bond-Chuck Norris-Jackie Chan hybrid and, well, you get the idea. For starters, the waterproof-to-3,000-meters (10,000ft) (is it even possible to dive half that deep??) Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow case is fashioned from ultra-durable carbon fiber. Its inner bezel, seconds hand, and “Automatic” insignia on the dial ring yellow, while large, luminescent accents, stenciled numerals, and a thick, sapphire crystal glare-proofing glass housing add to the timeless aesthetic. Add a Breitling-certified chronometer, balancing security valve, unidirectional bezel and a computer-designed case and you’ve got yourself a top-shelf, practically second-to-none diver wristwatch from the prestigious maker of timepieces, Breitling.
Or, you can simply go with a Rolex, which may or may not be the du jour special of the local street “vendor.”
