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.

The Best New Mechanical Watches: Kobold Himalaya

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
