Sporting dual time zones and an integrated compass, the Diesel Compass Watch ($250) is one unique timepiece. The watch is dominated by the oversized stainless steel face, which boasts a large square main dial, a slightly rectangular secondary dial, and a circular compass window. Also available in gunmetal, the Compass additionally boasts a chronograph function and genuine leather strap.
If you loved the Bamford Black Rolex Watches we wrote about a while back but don't have quite enough coin to pick one up, consider one of these Black DLC Rolex Watches ($6,000 and up). For roughly half the price of the Bamford, you can get a Submariner, Sea-Dweller, Explorer II, GMT-II, or Milgauss, all of which have been treated using an advanced process to apply a super-hard, military-grade "Diamond Like Carbon" coating that gives the watches their unique stealth black finish.
Combining rugged looks and military-style quality, Bertucci Field Watches ($80-$190) are an affordable choice for retro-styled timepieces. Each watch is designed with the wearer in mind, made to stand up to the elements, and offering features like electro-luminescent dials, chronographs, and tough nylon bands that make them far preferable to your typical sporty watch.
