Nautica’s Latest Watch Collection by David Chu

Nautica GTS Titanium Ocean 50 black strap watch

In the early 1990s Nautica introduced a line of watches. Designer David Chu was inspired by sailing and many features of the watches reflect that influence. Three types are available from Nautica: leather, metal and rubber sport watches. Most of the watches are made with men in mind, though a handful of elegant timepieces are designed to fit seamlessly with women’s fashion.

The designs are highly functional and handsome enough to appeal to more than just sports enthusiasts. One example is Nautica’s Ocean 50 Chronograph watch. The band is a rich chocolate brown with contrasting white stitching. The main casing is titanium with gold toned crown, controls and accents on the dial. The chronograph turns on an exterior brown bezel, as well as on the interior of the dial with a metallic tachymeter. A small window shows the date to the right of three sub-dials. The watch provides polished elegance and nautical assistance for casual sailing or yacht racing.
Another polished watch from Nautica is the Sport Ring Resin watch. The red and black tomes of the dial are stunning in the polished, stainless steel casing. It’s bezeled chronograph doubles as a compass, with NW, SE and SW identified along with the 15, 30 and 45 minute marks. For a casual and comfortable fit the band is made of soft black resin.

Nautica’s watches are handsomely designed with elegant materials and tones. They feature nautical functions that can be used for more than water sports on dry land or the high seas.
