Lum-Tec Combat B39 Phantom Watch

The field watch is renowned both for its timeless style, simplicity, and toughness. And most watchmakers worth their mettle offer one in their catalogue. Some, however, still manage to stand out from the crowd, like Lum-Tec’s Combat B39 Phantom.

With a stealthy all-black appearance, this watch looks as tough as nails. And that makes sense, because it is – with a titanium carbide PVD coated 316L stainless steel case and a military-grade anti-reflective sapphire crystal that, together, give it a 200-meter water resistance. Pair that with the fact that it’s also loaded with a reliable Swiss Ronda 515 movement held by an innovative anti-shock mounting system, both leather and nylon NATO-style straps, MDV luminous hands & dial, and Viton high-tech gaskets, and you end up with one of the most solid watches available. This unbelievably resilient watch sells for $495.

Purchase: $495
