Our Top Ten H2O Timepieces

Whether you're looking for a cool diver watch to spearfish with, a water resistant chronograph to splash around in or a conceptual conversation starter for your holiday, Watchismo has 'em all.
Aren't you tired of the same ol' boring watches you see at the mall or the jewelry store? That's why we created Watchismo -- we comb the Earth for only the most unique and unusual watches.

Take a deep breath, let's dive into some of our favorites:

A modern classic from Nixon Watches, the much-loved Nixon 51-30 is now available in a soft-touch silicone version. A crowd favorite since it was first introduced into the Nixon line, The 51-30 can handle life in and out of the water and was first inspired and designed with the waves and ocean in-mind. Featuring a unidirectional rotating bezel and high and low tide sub-dial, the newly updated rubber version is soft to the touch and features a one piece injected silicone case and band.
Did we mention they are up to 50% off? Well, now we did. Starting at just $199.

Time your surf sessions right and you don't even have to think. And who wants to think? Dissolve your brain in saltwater. Get lost in the explosion of a backside bash. Or a frontside slash. Escape life on land and head for the water. With the rhythm of the tide displayed in high-resolution detail, the Supertide syncs you up with the motion of the ocean so you know exactly when to go. Whether you're sitting in the line up at your local break or frothing in your car, stuck in traffic, one exit from the beach, you'll know what you need to know.
The Brig Tide is a digital tide & train watch that can track the tide at over 200 beaches worldwide for the next 20 years. It also offers a host of other high end features like a digital tide graph that features current tide height, quick access to Vestal's own custom training mode with "Suffer and Recover" interval timer, and Heat Mode with countdown timer so you can practice your surf heats like the Pros. The watch strap is secured to your wrist with a new patent pending OKTOLOCK system. The OKTOGRIP raised pattern on the underside of the band means significantly less rubber contact against your skin providing greater breathability, more flexibility, and a lighter feel on your wrist.
The Vestal Restrictor Diver 50mm is a retro, diver-style timepiece that combines all the best elements of early dive watches like durability, corrosion-resistance, & readability with a custom silicone strap featuring Vestal's patent-pending, modified OKTOLOCK system.
This watch has it all. You can wear it while snorkeling and going out to a formal seafood dinner at the resort. The Vestal Yacht utilizes a screw-down crown to protect the movement from the elements and helps this watch achieve a depth rating of 100 meters.
This is the real deal, Swiss made, Swiss chrono movement and rated up to 200 meters depth! A classic Zodiac diving watch built to last through the next great flood...

Vacationing in the jungle? Well, then you need a G-Shock watch and above all, we highly recommend this triple sensor altimeter/barometer, temperature and compass Rangeman.
It provide functions, construction and operability designed to support the wearer, even in survival situations. The new watches incorporate triple sensors to measure compass bearing, altitude/atmospheric pressure, and temperature—a first for a G-SHOCK watch. Users can check compass bearing information in situations with limited visibility for orienting, or use barometric information to forecast sudden changes in weather, making these watches reliable partners in situations where there is little room for error.
Built for the deep depths of oceanic atmospheres, the Tauchmeister Diver 1000 Meters works well under pressure. Marine-grade stainless steel casing and a durable polyurethane rubber strap keeps the elements at bay. This watch is the most water resistant timepiece we've ever carried at Watchismo. It doesn't get much more bulletproof than this.
An homage to the fearless Captain Nemo, this watch shows the dramatic attack of the giant squid from 20,000 leagues under the sea. The endless battle between squid and man depicts the time, from hour to hour each appears to be gaining the upper hand. The two men being held by the squid indicate the hours and minutes.
