In this post, we’ll explore the best sailing watches for sailors that are also great for everyday wear. We’ll take a look at both affordable and high-end sailing watches, as well as everything in between. With so many options out there, finding the right sailing watch can be tricky—that’s why I’m here to help!
Invicta Pro Diver
The Invicta Pro Diver is a versatile watch that can be used for diving, Sailing Watches or simply as a sporty everyday wear. It comes with water resistance up to 200 meters, which makes it a great choice for underwater activities like snorkeling and scuba diving. The stainless steel case houses an automatic movement that powers the unidirectional rotating bezel and date display at 3 o’clock position. For added safety when sailing or snorkeling, there’s also luminous hands and markers on the dial of this watch that are easy to read regardless of lighting conditions.
The rubber strap has a buckle closure mechanism so you can adjust its length according to your wrist size while still keeping it secure around your arm during physical activity such as sailing or windsurfing.
Casio G-Shock Mudmaster
You’re an active person, and you want a watch that can keep up. You don’t want to be forced to take off your new G-Shock Mudmaster when you decide to go for a swim, so it’s great to know that this watch is water resistant up to 200 meters (660 feet).
It’s also shock resistant, which comes in handy if you like taking risks and adventuring outdoors. It might not be comfortable for everyone, but there are many men who find this feature useful if they’re out hunting or hiking in the woods—or even just roughhousing with their friends.
While we’re on the topic of durability, let’s talk about atomic timekeeping. This means that instead of relying on radio signals or GPS data from satellites (which are prone to interference), this Casio model syncs up with an atomic clock once per day via satellite signals and then keeps itself accurate within seconds per year thanks to its own built-in receiver system. That way no matter where in the world you go or how long ago it was since your last update—from anywhere between 2 weeks and 5 months ago—your G-Shock will still show the right time!
In addition to its water resistance and shock resistance capabilities as well as its atomic timekeeping accuracy, this model has several other useful features: backlight displays day/date/month/year; stopwatch function; countdown timer function; hourly chime function
Seiko 5 is a Japanese watch that’s been around for decades, and it’s a mechanical watch with a quartz movement. You might be thinking: what does that mean? Well, it means it keeps time the same way you think of an old-school clock ticking away on your wall or desk. There are no batteries to worry about and no need to charge; just wind it up every so often and go! The Seiko 5 is also waterproof to 50 meters (165 feet), which will come in handy when you’re out on the water or even just riding around town in your convertible. It comes with a stainless steel band and case with black dial face and white hands—so while this isn’t necessarily an elegant looking piece of jewelry (it’s more rugged), you can bet that this watch is going to last through some serious wear-and-tear over many years of use without needing repair work done on it!

This watch also has a water resistance rating of 200m/660ft which means you can wear it while swimming or snorkeling without worrying about damaging it.

It has a metal case with an analog dial face, which makes it suitable for diving or sailing.
The solar-powered battery is designed to last 10 days without exposure to light and has an impressive battery life when exposed to light—up to 2 weeks in full sunlight or up to 6 months in total darkness.
The Seiko Automatic is a good-looking, tough watch. It’s water resistant up to 200 meters, and its sapphire crystal face is extremely scratch resistant. The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42 millimeters and thickness of 12 millimeters—a solid but not bulky build that will definitely stand out on your wrist. The bezel around the face is made of stainless steel as well, with an unidirectional rotating bezel (as opposed to an analog display).
The band consists of a combination of rubber and nylon materials—this doesn’t affect its comfort or performance in any significant way but does make it more comfortable than other options on this list.

Its stainless steel case, 42mm diameter with 13mm height, houses an automatic movement with a power reserve of 40 hours.

The date window at 3 o’clock keeps the face feeling balanced and uncluttered while also providing useful information at a glance.

The Brizo BZ02-DG Dive Watch 42mm is a great watch for diving, with its unidirectional bezel with diving scale, and water resistance up to 200 meters.

The case back is engraved with Hamilton’s logo—a “H” inside an oval shield—and there’s also some engraving near 12 o’clock as well as on either side of 6 o’clock that shows where each part was made: Switzerland or Japan (40 percent).
Hamilton designed this model so it would be water resistant up to 50 meters (165 feet) underwater without any special treatment before going into water; however, if you want additional protection against moisture then they recommend using their Protectant 2 application after purchasing but before wearing it in saltwater environments like oceans or lakes because otherwise they recommend using only fresh water locations such as lakes or rivers due to potential corrosion issues over time when exposed too long periods at sea level temperatures outside direct sunlight exposure during extended periods without use/wear by owners who do not regularly wear watches regularly throughout their lives after purchase date until death.”

If you’re still unsure about which sailing watch will suit your needs best, we recommend taking these factors into consideration:
- Waterproofness: The best sailing watches will be waterproof (and not just water resistant). This means they can be worn while swimming or diving without compromising their functionality or integrity.
- Stopwatch features: Timekeeping is essential on the water and having an easy way to keep track of elapsed time is especially important during races or other competitions where every second counts. Having a stopwatch feature can also help make sure that everyone knows when it’s time to start racing again after getting back out from shore!
