If your budget doesn't allow for a shiny Rolex Submariner, see if there's at least enough in your sock drawer for the Timex Andros Watch ($175). Yet another collaboration with J.Crew, the watch sports a classic dive-style looks, a preptastic nylon strap, quartz analog movement with a functioning bezel, and is water-resistant up to 100 meters.
If you guessed by the name that the Citizen 20th Anniversary Aqualand Watch ($360) was made for use underwater, you'd be right. The stainless steel and rubber timepiece offers measurement of the surface interval, time, and depth of each dive, a 20-dive memory, an auto-start DiveMode, a water temperature read-out, three alarms, travel time with support for 42 cities in 29 time zones, electro-luminescence backlighting, and, of course, a glove-friendly design.
Retro gaming mixes with high-end timepieces in the RJ Romain Jerome Space Invaders Watch ($TBA). Available in two 78-piece limited editions — one with colored Invaders, one with white — these unique watches feature round shapes set within a 46mm cambered square, steel coalesced with fragments of the Apollo 11 capsule, four functional ball-and-socket joints designed to recall the feet of lunar landing modules, a dedicated plate of Moon Silver on the back, and a black rubber strap.
