Less than a month ago was the winter solstice, and while the cold may not be well received by the general public, it's great news for many: winter sports enthusiasts.
Winter sports watches
Whether you're passionate about skiing or snowboarding as if your passions are off-track, winter demands from your watch an extra resistance and reliability to face the cold, wind and humidity.
With these requirements in mind, here are some of the watch options we recommend as the best allies for slopes and mountain adventurers on this action-packed season:
LUMINOX COMMANDO RAIDER 3300
This model's case is made of Carbonox, a material that stands out above all for its lightness, and at the same time great resistance. This watch is resistant, luminous, extremely water resistant, and highly legible. Its bezel with time scale, time zones and night vision tubes with 25 years of autonomy make it the ideal companion.
The case of this U-boat is made of 316L stainless steel, a non-magnetic material, with good ductility even at low temperatures and highly resistant to corrosion. It's 10 atm depth water-resistant, and its patented crown protection system, makes it especially resistant in snowy environments, or to go to the jacuzzi after the mountain. Limited to 500 units, this model combines practicality and exclusiveness.
The Victorinox I.N.O.X line includes watches prepared to survive the most extreme situations. These watches maximize utility and practicality, have superluminova on indices and hands, screw-fastened case back and a 20 atm depth waterproofness. They also come with a detachable bumper that protects from scratches.
Its case is made of 316L stainless steel, with screw-down crown and bezel with anti-scratch coating. Characterized by a wooden strap, guilloché decoration on the dial.
It has overcome more than 130 resistance tests, compression of 8 tons in a hydraulic press, the passage of a 64-ton tank over it and a fall from a height of 10 meters. This limited edition of 100 pieces was sponsored by Jesús Calleja, renowned Spanish traveler and adventurer.
SMARTWATCH ALPINA ALPINER X
They combine a quartz movement with a digital screen that includes a multitude of functions visible both on the watch and on your smartphone thanks to its AlpinerX app. These functions allow you to know your environment to find the best trails, your body, the time so you don't miss a minute of adventure and, as the mountain is no place to disconnect, this smartwatch also allows you to receive notifications without having to take your mobile out of your backpack.
Screw-down case back, illuminated hands and indicators, and water-resistance 10 atm. GMT model with black fiberglass and stainless steel case with black or orange silicone strap and silver or black bezel.
