If it’s a rugged, casual watch that you seek to round out your ever-growing timepiece collection, then you’re in luck today here on the blog. There are slim dress watches made for wearing with your best suit, there are durable running watches made for getting off the trail … and then, there are watches like the Hemel HFT20 Watch, which you could feasibly wear for every other style scenario you come across. The Hemel HFT20 should undoubtedly rank high on any list of the best men’s watches you come across — why’s that now, Beau? Allow me. The Hemel HFT20 is a recent addition to the stellar casual watch collection found at Huckberry, and with good reason. Perhaps it’s the bold, military-inspired design of the HFT20, which takes its styling cues from the Type 20 Chronograph (that would be the watch worn in part by the French Air Force).
Perhaps it’s the mecha-quartz technology of the Hemel HFT20 , taking the no-frills approach of a quartz watch, merged with details like a sweeping second hand — found in mechanical movements. Or maybe, just maybe … it’s the simple fact that the Hemel HFT20 just looks darn good when worn with menswear essentials. This is the sort of watch you can throw on and … kind of forget about. It looks great, it gets the job done, and it’s highly, highly versatile.
So, based on the rugged good looks of the Hemel HFT20, let’s turn our attention toward said menswear essentials. A bold-yet-subtly stylish watch like the HFT20 , what with its rich, heavy-duty leather strap and 42mm diameter, calls for outfits that are equally tough and yet versatile. Think a classic chambray shirt, paired with dark indigo denim and your new favorite chukka boots. Add a grey crewneck sweater, and you’re set for fall. Or, wear the HFT20 with a rugged short-sleeve henley and tan chino shorts to hit up your favorite brewpub patio this summer. Heck, the Hemel HFT20 would work as an admirable business-travel watch, too. I’m thinking a lightweight navy cotton blazer, a classic Oxford shirt, tan chinos and stylish chukka boots. Bingo, bango … bongo? Yessir, the Hemel HFT20 is the underrated, endlessly versatile, tremendously well-designed watch you need on your wrist for August and well beyond.
