Seven Watches for a Week at the Beach

A week at the beach, so one watch on my wrist and six in case; the case is a new arrival from Saga Trading Co [find them on Instagram] and is amazing. Here’s a quick look at the watches, left to right, top to bottom:

-- TAG Heuer Aquagraph 2000, circa 2003, is an old reliable . . . this one usually gets the call for the morning run and it’s a natural for the beach.

-- Sinn 156 is a favorite that has been in my rotation for at least 15 years, a pilot’s watch rather than a dive watch . . . love the center-mounted chronograph minute hand.

-- Heuer Super Professional, Ref 840.006 is one of the classic Heuer dive watches, included in the catalog from 1984 into the early 2000s . . . 1000 meter depth rating and super comfortable.

-- Scuba by Paul Garnier is the only true vintage watch in the pack, one of the 4ATM series, circa 1968, with Valjoux 72 movement . . . it wears well and gives me a nice white dial, but we’ll keep it away from the water.

-- Orange Heuer, Ref 980.007 is another of the classic Heuer dive watches . . . the only quartz-powered one in the roll.

-- Tudor Pelagos is a recent addition to the family and adds titanium to the mix . . . very comfortable and it has been accurate to within a second per week.

-- Seiko Prospex SPB077 joined the team for our 2019 beach trip and has been a regular since then . . . count on this one to get the most wrist time for the week.

Wishing everyone a great Summer with enjoyable holidays along the way!!
