Although it may seem that the classic wristwatch has been virtually rendered moot by today's increasingly capable waves of cell phones, they are still invaluable assets, especially for athletes. A great sport watch provides loads of functionality a hair's length away without sacrificing a bit of style. Before you settle on a new sport watch, consider some of these stand out models that combine practicality and fashion.
Invicta Men's Reserve Subaqua Venom Swiss Quartz GMT MOP Dial Strap Watch When considering sport watches, it'd be a crime to overlook the classic diver's watch. Invicta's eye catching Reserve Subaqua Venom Swiss Quartz GMT MOP Dial Strap watch does an incredible job of melding impeccable style, durability and functionality. This watch's sturdy yet attractive black rubber band is decked with stainless steel inserts, to echo the accents of the silver tone stainless steel case.
The unidirectional rotating bezel features a sandblasted out edge and Arabic numerals at ten minutes intervals as well as a shining polished silver tone inner band. A generous layer of scratch resistant flame fusion crystal helps provide the Subaqua Venom's impressive 1000 meter water resistance while protecting the gorgeous platinum tinged mother of pearl dial.
