The Nautica fashion brand has had its share of ups and downs over the years, but there are a couple of areas in which it has been able to maintain stability in a very volatile industry. Nautica is a brand that became popular because of its cool nautical associations. From deck shoes to bright colors that emulated the yachting lifestyle, Nautica rose through the ranks to enjoy the same successes as Tommy Hilfiger and Kenneth Cole. Moving into the 2000s proved challenging for the designers at Nautica, and they lost some traction with their clothing line. However, they have remained steady when it comes to their fragrances and their watches. While you will not see the Nautica watch brand mentioned in the same sentence with Hugo Boss or Movado, you will see comparisons to Kenneth Cole and Guess.
To help familiarize you with the Nautica watch brand, we have listed the top five Nautica watches on the market right now.
Nautica Men’s N17654G Analog Display Quartz Watch
This watch design stays true to its nautical roots. The composite rubber band provides comfort and durability while presenting a level of aesthetic appeal that will get you noticed. The casing is made from a combination of stainless steel and rose gold, creating a divinely rich look that can meet the demands of casual surrounding or semi-formal without breaking a sweat. Additionally, the watch is actually functional in a nautical setting. It has a water resistance of up to 330 feet. While this resistance level will not be sufficient for deep diving, it is ideal for snorkeling and swimming.
Nautica Men’s Quartz Resin Silicone Watch
This bold and stylish watch comes with changeable white and blue leather bands, creating the capacity for extreme diversity. Equipped with tachymeter and triple sub-dial displays, this intricate design is an idea for the man who takes his wristwear seriously. The medium-blue dial provides the perfect background for the white triple sub-dials. The watch is guided by quartz movement with an analog display. Although it does not have the water-resistant capacity to stand up to serious diving, it is ideal for swimming and snorkeling, with a water-resistant capacity of 100 meters.
Nautica Men’s 25007G NCS-46 Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch
What could you possibly not like about this watch? The stainless steel bracelet and casing ensures that this watch answers the bell in the area of durability. Time accuracy is not an issue with quartz movement guiding its timekeeping. The black dial is filled with detail including three sub-dials. The bold and seamless tachymeter also adds character to this gorgeous timepiece. It is safe to use in water up to 330 feet, which opens the door for a lot of surface water activity. The slanted date window really gives this watch a lot of character. The design is great for casual or formal attire. You can wear it with a Nautica short set of a nice suit. Both the hands and the indexes are luminous, meaning that you will be able to check the time in dark settings like the movies.
Nautica Men’s N18711G Stainless Steel Watch
While this particular design will not cut the mustard in a formal setting, it speaks with such boldness that you have no choice but to listen. The color stainless steel casing lends to the overall durability of the timepiece. The yellow rubber composite band is another durable element that contributes to the longevity of this design. The black dial serves as the ideal backdrop for the white numbers and indexes that give the watch so much personality. The triple sub-dial design gives the watch a sophisticated appeal even with the bright yellow band. The displaced date window is another unique feature that makes this watch stand out. Although this watch has no formal functionality whatsoever, the explicit detail of the design coupled with is aesthetic appeal landed it in the number two spot.
Nautica Men’s N20059G BFD 101 Black Resin
This design is the ultimate in sporting designs by Nautica. It does not have a lot of wiggle room when it comes to versatility. I can’t see wearing this with any type of formal wear, but it is ideal for the sporting setup, especially when it comes to boating. The stainless steel casing and the composite rubber band ensure the durability and dependability of the watch. The Chronograph movement ensures the accuracy. There is not a great deal of activity but the luminous dial and triple sub-dials take it slightly beyond simple.
