Most of us have already enjoyed warm enough Spring weather to awaken that summer feeling that was slumbering deep inside during winter. It brings the anticipation of spending days lakeside or on the beach, firing up the barbeque or dining al fresco at your favorite restaurant. These four watches will for sure help you to further get into the mood, as no summer outfit would be complete without them;
Zenith Defy Classic
The Defy Classic with white ceramic case and matching rubber strap is bound to become a favorite this summer. This light yet strong material makes it that you don’t have to worry about your watch even when you take part in more demanding activities. With a diameter of 41mm does it have quite a bit of wrist presence but doesn’t get in the way of whatever you are doing. It is powered by in-house movement caliber Elite 670 SK, which is not only equipped with a silicon escape wheel and lever but which Zenith skeletonized as well. The fact that is it water resistant up to 100 meters makes it that you also don’t have to stay away from the water when wearing this watch.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300M
Nothing says summer like a diving watch! Among this category, the Omega Seamaster is an icon. Its legacy was recently continued by a new generation of this highly recognizable watch. It marked the return of the wave-pattern dial, now surrounded by a ceramic bezel featuring an enamel diving scale. As a certified Master Chronometer, the Seamaster Diver 300M is powered by Omega caliber 8800, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback. While the Seamaster is available on its steel ‘Bond’-bracelet, Omega offers it on a rubber strap as well, and that makes it particularly suitable to get that summer vibe started.
Hublot Spirit Of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire
This Spirit Of Big Bang screams summer, as its yellow sapphire case looks likes it is crafted from a ray of sunshine. This is even more so the case when light hits it. Hublot has over the years established itself as a true master in the field of crafting sapphire watches, to the extent that most other brands seem to have abandoned their efforts. Not only are they capable of creating it in bright and vibrant colors, such as this yellow, but Hublot is also able to machine it in challenging shapes, such as the tonneau case of this Spirit of Big Bang. Their efforts are most certainly not in vain, because the result is a breathtaking watch with a very generous dose of character.
Glashütte Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date
Sometimes subtle details can set the stage; this is most certainly the case with the Glashütte Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date. Here the dash of color provided by the hands and hour indexes, combined with a comfortable rubber strap, is enough to transform this very serious German watch into a pleasant summer companion. With a water resistance of 100 meters, it is not afraid of getting wet. Turn the watch over, and the recently introduced manufacture caliber 37-01 comes in full view. With its refined finish and generous, 70-hour power reserve, it represents some of the best German craftsmanship, and the knowledge to have that around your wrist makes those long, summer days even more sweet.
