When you need an EDC watch that will stand up to the elements, a dive watch is your best bet. They're built to tackle critical underwater missions, after all. But even if you don't plan on taking it for a dip, a dive watch is still a solid choice for everyday wear. The First Tactical Fathom is a rugged yet sophisticated dive watch that wears well both out in the field and out on the town.

As a bona fide dive watch, the Fathom is waterproof down to 200 meters thanks to its pressurized internals, stainless steel case, and screw-down crown. Durable from the outside in, it features a Japanese quartz movement and a uni-directional rotating bezel for reliable timekeeping with minimal maintenance. Its TPSiV polymer band will also withstand the rigors of getting wet and drying out on a frequent basis. As an added tactical feature, the watch band has a morse code cheatsheet on its reverse side.

The Fathom wasn't designed to be solely a tool — its sleek styling makes it a timepiece you can wear off duty, too. At 47mm, its has plenty of wrist presence and an extremely legible face thanks to the larger diameter and minimalist markers. Super-LumiNova coating on the hands glow in the dark help with visibility in low-light conditions. And the hardened mineral crystal will hold up to moderate bumps and inadvertent scratches during daily use.

If you're been looking to add a durable and waterproof watch to your EDC, consider making the First Tactical Fathom your first choice. It's available in two different colors: matte black and titatnium-colored stainless steel. Check out both versions at the link below.

The price is easy on the budget, but it's commensurate with the price of so many other quartz watches. What this points out is the relative lack-of-pizazz inherent to quartz in general. Quartz is quartz. As far as I'm concerned, anyway. The phrase used in the write-up above, 'minimal maintenance' is being ...well, more than kind. Said another way: quartz is somewhat boring. There's nothing to do with one except strap it on. They can look swell but they're unexciting. I mean, if you're gonna pay $150 for a timepiece, why not go for one that immerses you in the cool, arcane world of chronology and all the precision engineering that entails? This particular watch --Fathom--is nice-looking, I admit. A clean, easy-to-read face--bravo. The right size on your wrist and exactly the type of band I prefer. And I like the morse code element, too. That's fun. But for just a little more money I'd get something to really be proud of. Just sayin'
Shame its double the price in the uk. Looks like a nice watch.
I personnaly use a Citizen Promaster Automatic. Its also a dive watch with a capability of diving 200m. It has a sleek, simple design and fits tactical aswell as elegant situations.
