As the name suggests, this type is designed for the field. What comes to mind is the rugged outdoor, rough terrains, windy, rainy, sunny, and dusty conditions.

With such situations, you need a watch that can handle the dirt, bangs, falls, heat, different temperatures, abrasion and much more.

A field watch comes in a tough design and is also a durable watch. Traditionally, stainless steel was the main material of construction.

However, titanium and resin are becoming popular. The materials handle the extremities well, they don’t rust or corrode. Most come with fabric wrist bands for easy changing or replacing in case of damage.

The timepiece will also have a large face or dial for easy viewing. This is because you’ll in many instances view the watch while in motion or from poorly lit situations.

Generally, they feature a dark dial/ background with large numbers. The hour markers and the hands will also be bold and will come in a contrasting color. A good case in point is silver-tone or white against a black dial.

And believe it or not, this type of watch is one of the most loved types for customers all over the world. But I also understand that not everyone would love it.

So, if you’re still looking for some nice alternatives, then I highly recommend you check out the resources below. They’re all great watches and can definitely help you look better:
