Gruppo Gamma has released a new model that they say is a quintessential field watch, characterised by robustness, readability, and reliability. With its workhorse, Seiko mechanical movement, sapphire box crystal and drilled lugs, the Venturo Field Watch II has a no-nonsense name to match its durable spec. Featuring 200m of water resistance and Swiss SuperLuminova afterglow, the Field Watch II is made to withstand any terrain and any environment.
The watch has a 316 grade steel case, is 41mm across and takes design inspiration for vintage Rolex models from WWII. With the large numerals on the dial featuring a vintage patina they have the look of radioactive paint – but without the cancer-inducing poison. Dial colours are grey, black and blue, plus there are sunburst finish dials in blue and black. It really captures a military feel and the price is right – although UK buyers need to add on unknown import duty and VAT.
US based Gruppo Gamma has free shipping on this baby right now, for US customers, and it’s priced at $369.
