Sometimes you just want an inexpensive, no-frills, no-hassle field watch for taking out into the wild — something simple and legible that you won’t worry about getting beat up, or flooded in a river, or eaten by a bear. Or a liger.
Bertucci’s watches fit the bill — in fact, its titanium A2-T was one of our favorite field watches of 2018. But if you’re looking for something real cheap, the DX3 Performance Field Watch is the way to go.
Featuring a 40mm black fiber-reinforced poly-resin case with 50m of water resistance, a mineral crystal, luminous hands, a nylon strap and Japanese quartz movement, the DX3 weighs only 1.5 oz and is available in multiple dial and strap colors. Best of all, it’s available right now for just $50, a 33% savings off MSRP.
