The primary purpose of any watch is to tell time, but it’s going to have a hard time managing that if it can’t survive being put through the ringer — a typical issue for soldiers, outdoorsmen, and those with an interest in aquatic adventure. If you fit into any of those groups, however, we’ve got good news: SOG and ARES paired up to build an ultra-tough American-manufactured DIVER-1 watch.

A limited run called the ‘Black Out Edition,’ this small-batch dive watch has been put through a daunting 20,000 hours of testing to ensure it can survive just about anything. And it did; in fact, it succeeded with flying colors — largely thanks to its durable construction of 316L stainless steel, a 300m water-resistance rating, Ronda 715Li 5-jewel movement, 10-year lithium-ion battery, and an AR-coated sapphire crystal. Individually-serialized, only 20 of these limited-edition dive watches will ever be made — which you can pick up right now for $695.

Purchase: $695
