When searching for the perfect everyday watch or GADA (Go Anywhere, Do Anything) watch, there are several factors one needs to consider. The watch has to be able to withstand whatever action your day entails (including resistance to scratches and water), it has to be reliable, and it has to have attractive and versatile styling that works in a variety of situations. The new Luminox Atacama Field Automatic in Navy Blue checks all of these boxes and looks darn good doing it.

The Luminox Atacama Field Automatic offers up classic sports watch styling in a package that boasts all of the signature toughness you’d associate with the favorite Swiss watch brand of the world’s military special forces. This modern take on the archetypal field watch features a robust 200 meters of water resistance that’s aided by a screw-down crown, a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, and superior nighttime visibility via Luminox’s signature self-powered tritium gas tube illumination that glows for up to 25 years. In addition to Luminox’s usual rugged fare, you’re also getting a Swiss-made automatic movement — the workhorse Sellita SW220-1, to be exact — along with a striking Navy Blue dial with orange and silver accents that will look just as good with dress blues as it does with combat fatigues. Finally, the 44mm 316L stainless steel case delivers plenty of wrist presence.

The Atacama Field Automatic in Navy Blue is priced at $975 on a matching blue webbing strap and $1,075 on a brushed three-link stainless steel bracelet. Both versions make for excellent everyday watches, and they’re available to purchase now direct from Luminox’s website.

Purchase: $975+
