The Thursday Buy: This Field Watch from Bespoke Post is An Affordable EDC Upgrade

Best field watch for men to buy this spring.

If you’re anything like me, perhaps you’ve amassed quite the collection of everyday timepieces over the years: Rugged, dependable, versatile, with leather straps or NATO straps… the list goes on in assembling any collection of the best men’s watches.

My own collection includes brands like Shinola, but I’m always on the hunt for the best affordable watches, especially from a trusted retailer. Naturally, that lends itself well to a company like Bespoke Post, which curates one of the best subscription boxes for men — and also stocks plenty of the best men’s gear, including EDC upgrades like the one in front of you today.

And the watch in question today is an astonishing one for the price: It’s the Wren Field Watch, a subtly stylish, reliable and durable watch available right now for under $150. Believe me when I say it packs a ton of bells and whistles into one highly affordable package, the kind you’re not apt to find all that many other places on the market.

Best field watch for men this year.

If per chance you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I’ve had the chance as of late to test out this rugged field watch, which performs well from coffee shop to concert to bar — and back again, of course. Yes indeed, the Wren Field Watch hits the right specs, from the PVD -coated stainless steel case (clocking in at a slightly larger 44mm case diameter) to the wear-with-anything nylon pass-through strap.

It’s the kind of casually cool watch right at home with your favorite spring shorts and a breezy polo in casual style situations aplenty, but a few touches turn the Wren Field Watch into a watch you can truly wear, well, out into the field. The Wren Field Watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters, so while it’s not a pro diving watch, it can get wet during a day on the water (that nylon strap dries quickly, too).

Plus, the Wren Field Watch boasts luminescent markings and indices, and the coolest touch of all might be the usable rotating compass bezel — how cool is that? Oversized numerals at 12-o’clock and 6-o’clock deliver nice legibility, while the dial has directional markings to help with that compass utility.

It’s worth remembering that you’re getting the Wren Field Watch for under $150, and that’s a heck of a deal when you really dive into it. Pick it up in a flash, then start plotting your next adventure with your new favorite casual watch.
