The 12 Gauge

Company: Oakley
Price: $1,195
We Say: “Like most Oakley products, this has all the bells and whistles, wrapped inside of a bombproof, rugged looking watch. It may be expensive, but it’s worth every penny.”

The Osaka

Company: Rip Curl
Price: $225
We Say: “Summer road trips. The simple, elegant face keeps it as simple as your itinerary, but the modern design adds a touch of class to your wrist.”

The Commander Elite

Company: Rockwell
Price: $1,000
We Say: “Sapphire coated crystal, Swiss-movement and a solid stainless steel band ooze strength and command attention. Don’t ever take this wathc off. Ever.”

The Jam Watch

Company: Roxy
Price: $50
We Say: “For the price, ladies, you can’t beat this. In the water, on the snow, wherever… this watch’s simplicity is all you’ll need.”

The Bully

Company: Skullcandy
Price: Call
We Say: “Everything plays MP3s these days, why not your watch. But more than a 1GB MP3 player and voice recorder, this gold beast can take a beating and swim 100 meters down. Your iPod can’t do that. “

The Core Steel

Company: Suunto
Price: $Call
We Say: “Not every outdoor watch has a crapy plastic band. Bring some class into the backcountry by taking the Core Steel.”

The Right Track

Company: Swatch
Price: $370
We Say: “Wrapped in white, this watch will steal looks, but with more chronographs than you can shake a stick at, this piece has some pretty heavy time-telling firepower. A great blend of form and function.”
