4 Summer Watches Worth The Tan Lines
It’s officially summertime, and that means dusting off the flip flops, working on that tan, and finding your perfect summer watch. Wearing a watch that remains comfortable through the heat waves, and keeps ticking after a dip in the pool usually means light, sport watches with steel cases and fabric straps. But there are no rules here, so let’s take a look at some of the best candidates for your summer watch.
Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre”
The Omega Seamaster 300 is a throwback design done right, faithfully re-creating the iconic diver of 1957. The “Spectre” edition may have an official tie with the latest Bond flick, but beyond that, it’s a flat out cool watch. There’s no Bond branding on the dial or bezel, just a handsome matte black dial, cream yellow hour markers, and a classic NATO strap. The Seamaster 300 “Spectre” is an approachable Summer watch available on StockX right here.
TAG Heuer Carrera
The TAG Heuer Carrera has evolved into many different forms since it was first offered by Heuer in 1963, and today it can be had in this Summer-ready get up. Featuring an open-worked dial showing off components of the movement underneath, and a striking blue rubber strap, this Carrera will make a statement from the grill to the beach.

Nomos Ahoi 551
If you’re aim is to keep things simple and understated this Summer, the Nomos Ahoi 551 should be on your radar. Featuring a nylon band and a bright silver dial with a red seconds hand, it’ll add just enough flare to tie your summer get up together. Plus, it’s got a Nomos built automatic movement inside, so it’ll earn a nod of respect from even the snobbiest of watch collectors. Find the Nomos Ahoi 551 on StockX right here.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
The Royal Oak Offshore is perhaps the ultimate Summer outdoor activity watch. It takes all the restraint and subtlety of the classic Royal Oak, and dials everything up to 11. This Royal Oak Offshore features a blue dial with orange accents and a blue integrated rubber strap. It’ll hold up fine in the water and look good drinking a cold one after.
