The Fireman Classic is one of the most affordable fine mechanicals around. It’s tough, understated, and has tritium gas tubes in the hands and dial to shine brightly at night. Water resistant to 330 feet and shock resistant to a good 5,000 g, the Fireman Classic holds up outdoors, but we especially like how the brushed-steel case and optional rubber strap make it both dressy and understated. It has a smaller diameter and shallower height than the other pieces here for a compact, low-key appearance.
Diameter: 40 mm
