A tough watch to wear whenever you need one to set the tone for your day.

Your hunt for the best field watch — yes, that’s right, the very best field watch — just ended. I’m bringing that news to you today with this latest Style Pick of the Week, because the watch in question is the Undone Basecamp Standard Watch, and it’s the timepiece you need for all your summer adventures (and then some). In fact, what with its rugged durability, tough functionality and stylish looks, it could just be one of the best men’s watches in general — try it for yourself and you just might agree. As I always say, any piece of gear sold by Huckberry has the right things going for it, baked in from the very start. In the case of the Undone Basecamp Standard Watch, that says quite a lot. From the substantial-but-not-overly-large 40mm diameter to the 316L stainless steel case, this rugged field watch delivers the goods, making it a prime watch to wear on your next day hike or a camping trip … or else, just to grab a six-pack of your new favorite beer to hang around the bonfire. It’s also exceedingly lightweight, the perfect watch to wear on your wrist when you want to keep it simple (think a slub T-shirt and your new favorite light wash jeans, for starters).

One of many distinctive features that sets this watch apart.

But the Undone Basecamp Standard Watch is no ordinary watch, the kind you need to treat delicately — it’s got a strong Seiko automatic movement and again, that tough stainless steel case. It’s also domed with tough crystal that just so happens to be 3mm thick; this is a substantial, tough watch with distinctive time-telling hands and oversized numerals for ease of reading. Add in the fact that the dial features vintage-lumed numbers, and you’re looking at a rough-and-tumble watch you’ll want to wear all the time. The black-and-green combo is your author’s personal favorite, the type that’ll stand out especially nicely when worn with dark indigo denim, classic chukka boots and a classic men’s tee for easygoing, happy hour-ready style. It also retails for a shade under $300, seriously not a bad price if you want a dependable, do-it-all watch — you best not waste any time when it comes to picking up the Undone Basecamp Standard Watch (pun very much intended).
