During the sweltering months of summer, the heat sometimes demands abandoning your uncomfortable slacks for shorts, replacing your button-up shirts with polos, and refreshing your timepiece collection to ensure you appear dapper on every occasion. If you are too preoccupied to hunt down the freshest summer watch trends, we have your horological backside covered. Below, we have rounded up five summertime timekeepers.
EUROPEAN COMFORT: MILANESE TIMEPIECE BANDS
Dawned at the end of the 19th century in Milan, Milanese (or mesh) bracelets attained notoriety for their creamy-smooth texture and light-weight comfortability. Twined on specialized Italian machinery to produce a soft stainless steel mesh band that offers an effortlessly fluid wrap around the wrist. Mesh bands remain breezy and light-weight, which is a benefit over other watch band materials, like cowhide, for example in the humid and sultry heat. Plus, these ultra-svelte bands eliminate the dreaded issue of your arm hair getting trapped in the bracelet through its link-less configuration.
HARDY AND WATERTIGHT: PANERAI SUBMERSIBLE COLLECTION
If you are the man whose passion for nautical adventure gets the heart pumping, then Panerai'sequally durable and waterproof, Submersible collectionwill become your most trusted companion this season. Panerai's series of military-inspired timepieces offer the wearer water-resistance of 300-meters and luminous accents painted on the dial for every exploration. These high-visibility wristwatches come in either bold-umbra ceramic-based or weathered-bronze cases for a robustly handsome appearance.
BRIGHTLY-BLUE SUNDIAL: NOMOS GLASHÜETTE CLUB NEOMATIK TIMEPIECE
Luring aficionados with their enchanting Club collection, Nomos Glashütte's siren-blue dial timepiece is reminiscent of the summertime atmosphere that overlooks the Cote d'Azur—The French Riviera—of southeastern France. The charming timepiece incorporates a dredge of energetic finesse into your wardrobe. The electric-blue turquoise face that took the brand a year to produce employs a hearty-orange seconds hand on its small seconds sub-dial, evocative of a buoy wafting in the ocean. While the hour numerals and indexes attain a white luminescent glow for optimal readability. Buzzing inside the ultra-slim, stainless steel case—that is water-resistant up to 200 meters—is a quicksilver automatic movement.
BRAWNY AND AGELESS: WELCOME TO THE BRONZE AGE
If you are a hardy fellow whose proclivities include premium cigars, malted whisky, and sailing the open seas, a meticulously weathered timepiece could be the accessory to your summertime ensemble that is missing. Enter the bronze manufactured wristwatch: This avant-garde alloy undoes a unique patina through the course of the model's existence—constantly being improved by its experiences just like you. In addition, the alloy is aesthetically alluring, innately anti-corrosive, anti-magnetic, and resistant to seawater, making it more enduring than stainless steel and iron combined.
A TIDAL WAVE INTO CONSERVATION: THE BREITLING SUPEROCEAN HERITAGE
In 2018, Swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling forged a partnership with Ocean Conservancy, an organization committed to preserving the sea. A year later, Breitling commemorated this union with a limited-edition variant of its Superocean Heritage timepiece. This distinguished chronograph model, introduced in Bali, operates a scratch and shock-resistant unidirectional rotating bezel with the brand's renowned luminescent dot inside the triangle-shaped marker at 12, emitting a magnetic-blue radiance—instead of the signature nuclear-green. The metallic-silver dial utilizes three sub-dials and harmonizes seamlessly with the midnight-blue accents. With a strap made from the brand's proprietary yarn repurposed from nylon waste, the timepiece remains grounded in nautical preservation, delivering durability and infinite sustainability.
