The Best New Mechanical Watches: Kobold Himalaya

I’m looking for something waterproof and rugged for the ocean, but that polishes up for a meeting at work.

Kobold Himalaya ask an expert gear guy

Kobold Himalaya   


Waterproof to 330 feet and made to withstand shocks, the Himalaya transitions well between the office and trailhead. The Pittsburgh-based maker is known for its fans among professional adventurers and has opened a new satellite workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal, to make this and other timepieces. This model, with its cream-colored face, is the newest version in the series.

Diameter: 41 mm
: $2,450
