HEAVY DUTY WATCHES APPROVED FOR COUNTRY WOMEN, OUTDOORS & THE ACTION WOMAN
($15,000 for a watch? Ya. No. If these are your style and you have 15k to blow, there is a link below.)
So you fancy yourself an action man? You may not be an international explorer, boldly traversing uncharted territory and ousting indigenous peoples from their native lands.
You may not be Bond, keeping your country safe from dastardly villains via an envy-inducing collection of high-tech gadgets. In fact, your idea of adventure may just be watching Bear Grylls rough it while you lounge on the couch in silk pyjamas.
In any case, we think you deserve to dress like your most adventurous idols, and these outdoor watches are a sure-fire step in the right direction.
Panerai Submersible 47mm
The ‘baller’ watch for the tradie or man of ocean adventure. The Panerai Submersible 47mm has been a firm favourite of many Hollywood action heroes as well as athletes and men of adventure. Powered by the house’s calibre P.9010 automatic movement, it has a black dial detailed with luminescent indices that provide excellent legibility beneath water and is bordered by a unidirectional rotating bezel detailed with a 15-minute scale. It’s a big watch for an even bigger man.
Suunto 9 Baro Titanium
“Durable multisport GPS watch with a long battery life and barometric altitude”
Hailing from Finland, the timepiece is inspired by urban settings but equipped with an altimeter and a barometer for any un-urban explorations. It also has GPS to guide your outdoor expeditions (or to the bar where your friends are waiting, because your mobile died and you’re lost without Google Maps). It comes with rubber strap and sapphire crystal face and solid water resistance mean these outdoor watches are ready to follow you anywhere.
