Watch lovers who appreciate the French inclination toward elegant design will appreciate boutique brand March LA.B's range of tasteful timepieces. The company's newest watch, the Bonzer, is a 1970s-influenced, dive-style watch intended for surfing that offers an Art Deco flair in four color variations.

Housed in a 41mm steel case rated to 100m of water-resistance, the Bonzer isn't meant for serious diving, but it promises to be sufficient for water-based activities from surfing to snorkeling — and is comparable in specs to other popular dive-style watches. Powered by the robust Miyota 9015 automatic movement, it comes with other premium features such as a domed sapphire crystal. The watch's name references surfboards from the 1970s made by Duncan and Malcolm Campbell.

Of the four variations available in total, two feature a dark green hue for either the dial or aluminum bezel — and although this is a trendy color for watches at the moment, it should be noted that it's been March LA.B.'s signature for some time now. Each model has a price of around $1,405 on a strap or $1,580 on a three-link steel bracelet.
