Reef Tiger RGA3035 Super Luminous Dive Watch

Reef Tiger Super Luminous Dive Watches Mens Nylon Strap Automatic Watches with Date RGA3035 (RGA3035-YBB)

Here’s a great option from Reef Tiger if you just want a good diving watch. With the RGA3035 the focus is on luminosity. There’s lume in the hands, in the time markings and all over that unidirectional rotating bezel. You’ll have no issues telling time in the dark, which is certainly convenient when exploring the depths of an ocean.

Other than lots of lume, this particular Reef Tiger watch boasts water resistance up to 200 meters. There’s also a date window at six o’clock, which is a useful but not strictly necessary feature for a great diving watch.

The 44mm stainless steel case is on the smaller side, at least when you compare it to other Reef Tiger watches. It is protected with sapphire crystal glass, while the rugged nylon band guarantees the watch will stay put on your wrist while you’re diving.

On top of all that, this particular watch also boasts a screw down crown, which is essential in good diving watches. It protects the mechanism from water since it’s impossible to accidentally pull it out, which isn’t the case with standard push crowns. Overall, if you’re looking to get a great diving watch, this is certainly one of the top options from Reef Tiger.

Specifications

  • 44mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystal glass
  • Screw down crown
  • Luminous hands, markings and bezel
  • Water resistant up to 200 meters
  • Unidirectional diving bezel
  • Nylon band

Reef Tiger/RT Top Militare Watch

Reef Tiger/RT Top Militare Watches Blue Dial All Black Steel Automatic Mens Dive Watches RGA6903 (Black)

If you want a unique Reef Tiger watch, this is an excellent option. It’s a military inspired watch with a 46mm brushed stainless steel case with a rubber band. There’s lume in the hands and time markings, as well a unidirectional diving bezel that lets you track how long you’ve been underwater.

The watch is water resistant up to 100 meters, making it a great option for diving adventures. And there’s also the sapphire crystal glass that boasts excellent scratch and impact resistance, ensuring the watch will fare well even in really rough environments.

The Japanese automatic movement is as precise as can be, and you can even admire it in action. This Reef tiger watch boasts a transparent case back that puts that beautiful movement on display.

This looks like a sleek and simple watch, but it’s anything but. It is exceptionally functional with all the features you’d expect from a rugged outdoor watch. There’s even a date window between four and five o’clock that adds a calendar function to this beautiful watch. And on top of that, just look at the case design – the brushed sharp edges are not something you see on most wrist watches, and they certainly make this one stand out.

Specifications

  • Stainless steel case with sapphire crystal
  • Rubber strap with deployment buckle
  • Japanese automatic movement
  • Unidirectional rotating bezel
  • Water resistant up to 100 meters
  • Luminous hands and markings

Best Chronograph Watch

Reef Tiger Sport Chronograph Quartz Watch

Reef Tiger Sport Chronograph Quartz Black Steel Rubber Strap Mens Watches RGA3063 (ZRGA3063-BGB)

The Reef Tiger chronograph watch is an excellent sporty option. It’s quite different from the elegant watches dress watches that this brand does so well, and it’s a great option if you are prioritizing functionality over style. Which isn’t to say that the watch doesn’t look good – the unique dial design is more than enough to get people wondering what you’re wearing on your wrist.

The 48mm stainless steel case is covered with sapphire crystal glass, and the black rubber band keeps the watch secured to your wrist. The case back is solid, with an engraved image of an F1 car – enough to make me want this watch!

There are five circles total on the dial. One of those is a date window and all the others are mini dials for hours, minutes, seconds and one chronograph. Also, the watch features two rings around the dial; one of those indicated minutes and the other one is a classic slide rule bezel, made popular by Breitling.

Slide rule bezels are great for doing quick math – you can use them to calculate tips or convert miles to hours, among other things. However, this Reef Tiger watch doesn’t have the standard slide rule bezel – the inner ring indicates minutes, and that’s not what you need to do math on the go.

Specifications

  • 48mm stainless steel case
  • Sapphire crystal glass
  • Japanese quartz movement
  • Water resistant up to 100 meters
  • Slide rule outer bezel
  • Date window

Best Tachymeter Watch

Reef Tiger RGA3591 Mechanical Watch

Reef Tiger Mens Sport Mechanical Watches with Rose Gold Black Dial Automatic Watch Calfskin Rubber Strap RGA3591 (RGA3591-PBGR)

Want a watch that will make people stop in the middle of a sentence just to ask you what that is on your wrist? The RGA3591 is certainly a viable candidate! It boasts a spectacularly complicated dial with gears, mini dials and really thick hands. Also, the main dial of this watch is a proper calendar that will display day, date and month – if you want to tell time, you’ll have to look outside the dial.

There are a few different bezels on this watch and each of them has multiple purposes. There’s the outer tachymeter bezel that lets you keep track how fast you are going. You can use it to calculate the speed of your car or the speed of a bird you see flying, as long as you know how the tachymeter works. This bezel also features luminous dots that are in fact hour markers.

Also, the watch features a rotating outer bezel with minute markings. If it’s set properly, you can use it to tell time. Other than that, it helps you use the tachymeter function of the watch and it also works as a regular diving bezel.

This watch features a 46mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystal that protects the Miyota 9122 automatic movement. The black band is made from rubber, so it’s not only very durable but also exceptionally lightweight. And this watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, so you can confidently take it for a spin underwater.

 

Specifications

  • 46mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystal
  • Rubber band with tang buckle
  • Full calendar function on main dial
  • Tachymeter and diving bezels
  • Luminous hour markings

Reef Tiger RGA8238 Luxury Automatic Watch

Reef Tiger Luxury Simple Watches Analog Automatic Blue Dial Watches with Date Day RGA8238 (RGA8238-YLB)

Maybe you just want an elegant watch that you can wear to black tie events? The RGA8238 is certainly up to the task! This is a simple wrist watch with a 40mm stainless steel case that boasts a thin fixed bezel and a luxurious leather strap. Sapphire crystal glass covers the dial, guaranteeing the best scratch and impact resistance you could hope for.

The watch features a blue dial and the markings and hands match the color of the case. Meaning they are either silver or rose gold, depending on the exact color combination you choose.

This is a really simple watch – it boasts hour markings on the dial, three simple hands and a convenient day/date window at three o’clock and that’s it. It doesn’t even have minute markings, so if you’re looking for something with great functionality, you might want to consider some other option.

But if you want something gorgeous for your wrist, it certainly won’t disappoint. It is elegant, simple and stunning, and it even has a transparent case back allowing you to properly admire the automatic movement.

The watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, but it’s certainly not suitable for diving or underwater adventures. The water resistance is there to ensure it survives the occasional splash and maybe even a shower, but it’s definitely meant to be fully submerged.

Specifications

  • 40mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystal glass
  • Leather strap with tang buckle
  • Day/date window
  • Automatic movement
  • Transparent case back
  • Water resistant up to 50 meters

Best Elegant Dress Watch

Reef Tiger RGA1995 Double Tourbillon Skeleton Watch

Reef Tiger Men's Fashion Watches Double Tourbillon Rose Gold Skeleton Watches Leather Strap RGA1995 (RGA1995-PSBB)

You can also get a dress watch from Reef Tiger that’s the antonym of simple and subtle. The RGA1995 is a show stopper with the skeleton design that leaves nothing to the imagination. The transparent case back shows off the automatic movement and lets you admire both tourbillons from either side.

The watch is quite small – with a 44mm case, it’s one of the smallest Reef Tiger watches for men. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in detail. The skeleton dial has double tourbillons that let you not just admire the movement in action, but also work to improve the accuracy of the watch.

And it wouldn’t be a proper watch if it couldn’t tell time, so to no one’s surprise, it also boasts a smaller dial with hands, time markings and a convenient date window. The dial is either black with silver hands or silver with blue hands, depending on the exact color option you go for. The hour markings on this dial are Roman numerals while tiny dots mark the minutes and seconds.

If you want a very functional watch, this is not an option for you. It has a fixed bezel, there’s no lume in the dial and the water resistance only exists to be listed as a feature. But if you want a beautiful timepiece for formal events, it might just be the best option from Reef Tiger.

Specifications

  • 44mm Rose Gold case with sapphire crystal cover
  • Miyota 6T15 automatic movement
  • Rose Gold dial with Double Tourbillon
  • Calfskin bracelet with deployment buckle

Reef Tiger RGA3503 Men’s Military Watch

Reef Tiger Men's Military Watches Rose Gold Complicated Blue Dial Watch Automatic Sport Watches RGA3503

The RGA3503 watch from Reef Tiger is great for you if you like a complicated dial. With a tourbillon cage at six o’clock and mini dials for day, date, month and year, anybody who just glances at your wrist will be thoroughly confused. But don’t worry – it’s easy enough to explain what’s going on with the dial, and even easier to use it to tell time.

The bezel around the dial features luminous dots that function as the hour markings. There are no proper minute markings on the dial, but there are some on the outer bezel. So, if you’re not using that to keep track of something, you can use it to tell time more precisely.

And don’t let the photos fool you – the year dial is updated annually, and it should feature enough coming years to get you through the entire decade.

The automatic movement is accurate and smooth, and that second hand just runs around the dial without missing a beat. Also, the inner bezel boasts a tachymeter function for even better functionality of this stunning watch.

But let’s go back to basics for a second. This Reef Tiger watch features a 46mm rose gold case that’s protected with anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass. And there are two option for the band – calfskin and rubber, both of which feature a classic tang buckle. If you want something more stylish go with calfskin, but if you’re prioritizing durability in rough conditions, rubber will do just fine.

Specifications

  • 46mm rose gold case
  • Sapphire crystal glass
  • Tachymeter and diving bezels
  • Day, date, month and year mini dials
  • Luminous hour markings
  • Calfskin or rubber band

Reef Tiger RGA3168 Waterproof Sport Watch

Reef Tiger Fashion Blue Dial Watches for Men Waterproof Sport Watches Rubber Strap RGA3168 (ZRGA3168-YLL)

In case you are specifically looking for a diving watch, the RGA3168 is a really good option. It features a 49mm stainless steel case, a solid rubber band and a unidirectional rotating outer bezel. There’s also sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating that not only has excellent impact and scratch resistance, but also guarantees that the dial is easily legible in direct sunlight.

In terms of diving watch features, this particular Reef Tiger watch boasts water resistance up to 300 meters. There’s also the screw down crown that guarantees no water can get inside the mechanism.

By now, you must have noticed the dial. What’s most interesting about it is that the main ring around the dial indicates minutes instead of hours. But don’t worry – the watch also has three mini dials that note the hours in a 24-hour format, and also minutes and seconds.  And it’s not like you can’t tell time like these because you don’t know that ten minutes equals two hours.

But why might not all be easily legible, since the main hour and minute hands are quite thick and they somewhat cover the smaller dials. Another downside of this Reef Tiger watch is that it appears to lack luminous accents, so it’s not going to be easily legible in the dark. And that might be a problem if you try to test out if it really is as water resistant as they claim.

Specifications

  • 49mm stainless steel case (rose gold plated)
  • Sapphire crystal glass
  • Screw down crown
  • Seiko VK 68 Quartz Movement
  • Waterproof up to 300 meters
  • Chronograph feature
