Suunto X-Lander Black Digital SS012197310 Watch

Suunto X-Lander Black Digital SS012197310 WatchActive outdoorsmen swear by the ABC watches and it’s Suunto who kind of re-invented the type. The Altimeter, Barometer and Compass combination is a versatile one aiding anything from golf to rock climbing; from sailing and surfing to skiing. But, it has to be hard enough to stand the ordeals; else a tactical package is of no use. The Suunto X-Lander beats others on this ground. Lightweight and tough as a nail, the X-Lander serves you as much in the backcountry as within your luxurious yacht or when you are high above on the mountain trail. It’s not for nothing the geek circles call it the Mil-X (Mil is short for military) and this is the reason behind it. The design has proven itself in military operations and is less whiz-bang compared to many other of its ABC brethren, despite upgrades like the mineral glass (in place of acrylic) and carbon-fiber reinforced aluminum case instead of resin or stainless steel. All that makes for a package that’s both tougher and lighter.

Stinger buttons are another ground on which the X-Lander scores magnificently; these used to come formerly in the Suunto dive computers. These push buttons can be operated underwater, which is a stark contrast to the rest that have a strict restriction on underwater operability. Do it and they are gone! The Suunto X-Lander is prepared for such tough situations as well.

Apart from time,date and the ABC functions, the Suunto Core Light Green keeps track of a second time zone; measures and splits time with its stopwatch function, allows for countdown, programs two separate daily alarms and also determines a wearer’s position relative to the sea level. Remarkably accurate on hills if you know the reference altitude; that way, you can know for sure if it’s just a rise or fall in altitude or an approaching storm. It leaves nothing to guesswork.

The Suunto Vector Watches doesn’t allow you to make compromises, for if there’s one thing real professionals hate, it is making compromises. However, it’s not just professionals who are only entitled to go for the X-Lander, anyone with an eye and a want for a multi-functional sports watch is going to find this tight, little and tough package an elegant one. An abundance of features does not complicate things; on the contrary, they are extremely user-friendly with easy operating logic behind. The large display allows for big numerals, which is a privilege when you are under stressful conditions and an electro-luminescent backlight makes it fully usable even when its pitch dark. Exclusive looks within a rock-solid foundation, that’s the best way to describe the Suunto Core Watches, its non-allergenic materials (both for the case and the strap) making prolonged usage absolutely a breeze.

Skagen Melbye Titanium Case with Mesh Band SKW6007 Mens Watch

 

Skagen Mens WatchSkagen has a flair for streamlined, high-end designs, which they prove again through the Melbye Titanium case steel mesh watch. Its clean strokes and the brightly coloured inner numerals ring are unique and make it fit for both work and weekend.

The use of Titanium makes the Skagen Melbye both lightweight and strong and gives it a timeless finish. The Danish watchmakers brought in new evolutions in traditional designs; it’s their philosophy of excellence that fuelled the creation of this simplistic beauty, rather than re-packaging usual sporty styles within sophisticated silhouettes. The whole effort came out as a striking design, with inspirations coming from the dress-sports line of thoughts.

The Skagen Melbye Titanium Case with Mesh Band SKW6007 Mens Watch so far, is one of the masterpieces the brand came up with; blending a sporty feel to dressy elements and catchy colours, the neat outcome is a product that’s not age or occasion specific but an all time, all-round wear.

Its prominent features include a round titanium body that flows into somewhat square-ish extensions at the poles (12 & 6) to connect with the mesh band. The titanium is an apt choice in this regard, for it is virtually scratchproof and a fifth of the weight of steel of a similar mass. This makes it an ideal accessory both for work and play and for people with highly sensitive skin. Titanium is the most bio-friendly metal available and is also the most hypo-allergenic.

The next is an easily viewable day and date window. Positioned at three o’clock, it’s in high contrast with the grey dial. Running on analog quartz technology, it is accurate to the point and doesn’t need any user input unlike mechanical watches that must be worn or wound to keep them running. In this case, just a battery replacement every few years would suffice and there stays no such hassles like servicing that are required. The orange ring on the dial brings up a much needed break from the monotony of uniform grey and adds to the watch a vibrancy that pushes it into the sports category.

Atop the dial is a mineral crystal that’s as durable as the Skagen Denmark Watch itself; it ensures you don’t damage the watch if you accidentally bump your wrist against hard surfaces. It is also very hard to scratch, which means, your watch will keep looking like new even after years.

Along with all those there is a 5 meters water resistance that allows you to swim and shower without taking it off your wrist and thereby, cutting the risks of losing it altogether.

The Skagen Gitte Watch is for the person who likes the outdoors but not at the cost of curbed-down sophistication. It’s a wonderful example of simple Danish design, made from the most durable and bio-friendly of all materials. Built to stand the test of time, the ultra-lightweight Skagen Titanium Watch brings out your sporty spirit within no time.
