SIX WATCHES THAT BLUR THE LINE BETWEEN WORK AND PLAY

     

1. OCEANUS MANTA
Don't let its refined looks fool you. The solar-powered Manta is packed with technical breakthroughs, including the ability to sync itself with an atomic clock six times a day. $1,095 oceanus-us.com

2. VICTORINOX CHRONO CLASSIC XLS MT
With two LCD windows, this timepiece packs far more functions than its sleek appearance would suggest, including a chronograph, alarm, and perpetual calendar all operated by a single crown. $1,095 swissarmy.com

3. TISSOT T-TOUCH EXPERT
It's like an iPhone for your wrist. The touchscreen/face controls an altimeter, thermometer, and compass, among other functions. $995 ttouch.com

4. CITIZEN ECO-DRIVE PERPETUAL CALENDAR
Constantly having to change the date is an annoyance of the past with this looker; a perpetual calendar takes care of that for you. Nor do you have to worry about swapping batteries. The subdials double as a solar panel that works even in low-light conditions. $550 citizenwatch.com

5. LUMINOX 1400
This one might look mild-mannered, but Luminox supplies watches for the Navy SEALs, so durability isn't optional. The waterproof 1400 has a steel bracelet and an antireflective curved sapphire for maximum visibility. $800 luminox.com

6. TIMBERLAND STEPROCK
With its stainless-steel casing and rubber strap, this watch is meant to take a beating. But the multifunction face—with chronograph, alarm, date, timer, and 24-city bezel for tracking time around the world—ensures it's equally suited for international "working" holidays. $235 timberland.com
