Nite MX50-201 – toughest watch around?


It’s all very well sporting the latest in techno watches or a super-cool TAG Heuer, but if you like you outdoor sports, you want something that can withstand the elements and a few knocks and bumps. Something like the Nite MX50-201.

And it is tough – this gunmetal military watch with matching gunmetal bracelet is also water-resistant to a whopping 200m. It also has a Swiss made Quartz Ronda movement, a sapphire crystal face with triple anti-reflective coating and 16 individually hand positioned long-life light sources, so that no matter how pitch dark it is, you’ll be able to tell the time.

There’s also a date function and a stopwatch that measures to tenths of a second and a battery that should be good for two years. Available now for £290.
