Nautica N15519G Eclipse Chronograph
In the “nice watch-killer deal” department, this recently discontinued piece was a fairly good deal even before the big discount. It is a little different from other watches because of the telemeter feature – a distance, time measurement scale on the semi-vertical chapter ring that works with the chrono button and the second hand. As is always the case with the Nautica watches, build quality is exceptional, finish is superb and the fine details.are better than could be expected on a product in this price range. Check it out!

Nautica Mega Pro Diver NMX 650, yellow N18631G, blue N18635G, black N18630G, red N18633G
This wouldn’t be a complete round-up without some really big watches. At 50mm, the Mega Pro Driver NMX series wrist watches are seriously large – exaggerated by the uni-directional notched rotating bezel, the deep chapter-ring walled dial, over-sized lumed hands and markers and the extended crown guard. The strap looks like it was a collaboration by Zig-Tech and G-Shock. These watches brilliantly exemplify what we like about bold masculine dive-style watch fashion.

Not only is this a nice watch, but it’s being sold at a give-away price. The day sub-dial is a retrograde scale The other two sub-dials give date and 24 hour readings. It’s a good size, 44mm X 12mm and a nice clean look with a rose-gold bezel and notched crown on a brushed stainless case. The strap is brown leather and the brushed stainless clasp is signed. It’s a heck of a watch for 60 bucks!
