You have a million options under $1,000 when it comes to watches, but there are only a handful of independent watchmakers that are worth your time. One brand that recently grabbed our attention is Halios out of Vancouver, British Columbia. The Canadian watch brand has been pumping out some great dive watch styles and their latest model is one of their best yet.
The Seaforth is elegant and perfectly sized with a rotating bezel option that comes in at 41mm and a fixed bezel model at 40mm. Both models are equipped with domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective underside, 200M water resistance, and a Japanese Miyota automatic movement. The rotating bezel model can also be specified with a steel or sapphire bezel and a 12-hour bezel is also available for the travel set.
