5 Best Tool Watches From Top Brands

tool watch brands

A watch is referred to as a "tool watch" because it serves as a tool to manage specific tasks, besides telling the time.

For example, a diver's watch with high water-resistance ability and a rotatable bezel are designed to function underwater.

While a tool watch will not be used to hammer nails, manufacturers put stress on functionality.

Thus, these timepieces are indeed rugged, accurate and legible.

Here we will explore five such tool watches from popular and prestigious brands like Rolex, Breitling, and Tudor. Have a look!

1. Rolex Explorer II Tool Watches

Fitted with a second-time zone, Rolex developed the Explorer for globetrotters, adventurers, and researchers.

Rolex continually upgraded this watch over the years that was launched in 1971, making the Explorer an iconic model.

  • The Rolex Explorer II is made of the proprietary 904L steel that is more saltwater resistant.
  • It comes with a 42mm steel case.
  • Moreover, the Calibre 3187 that powers the watch is one of the most durable and lowest maintenance automatic movements.

The accuracy is ensured by Rolex's stringent standards and chronometer certificate.

2. Breitling Avenger Blackbird Tool Watches

The Breitling Avenger Blackbird features a unique 48mm black case that is made of DLC-coated titanium.

This coating helps in preventing reflections from light.

  • However, Breitling equipped this military-inspired watch with a screwed crown, unidirectional rotatable bezel, making it suitable for diving.
  • The Avenger Blackbird is water-resistance up to 300m.
  • Besides the case, the timepiece flaunts a black dial and strap.

The Breitling Avenger Blackbird houses an ETA 2824-based Calibre 17 chronometer-rated movement.

3. IWC Ingenieur Automatic

The IWC Ingenieur flaunts a simple design with timid dimensions and a soft-iron cage for protecting the movement from magnetic fields.

  • The watch comes with a 40mm steel case that measures merely 10mm in height.
  • Thus, the IWC Ingenieur can slide easily under jacket, cuffs or any equipment.
  • However, the manufacturer fitted the watch with an integrated steel bracelet, adding a professional touch.

Overall, the IWC Ingenieur Automatic watch is a perfect companion, especially for an engineer.

4. Tudor Pelagos LHD

The Tudor Pelagos LHD features a 42mm titanium case that is lightweight and corrosion-resistant.

However, the initials "LHD" stand for "Left Hand Drive" that ideally refers to the winding mechanism's reversed position.

It means that the crown is fitted opposite to its general position. And this is convenient for those who wear the timepiece on the right wrist.

Wearers can wear this watch also on the left wrist, thereby preventing the crown from any impacts.

  • The watch features an automatic helium-escape valve on the case's right side and a unidirectional bezel.
  • The bezel sports a matte-black ceramic disk with graduations coated with beige luminous material.
  • As the brand's professional diver's watch, the Tudor Pelagos LHD is water-resistant to an impressive 500m depth.

Moreover, Tudor's patented Calibre MT5612 powers the Pelagos LHD. This chronometer-certified movement functions with incredible precision.

It offers power reserve up to 70hours and a frequency of 28,800vph.

5. Oris Big Crown Propilot Date

The Big Crown Propilot Date watch from Oris features matte dial and luminescent hands and numerals that offer optimal readability.

  • Interestingly, users can operate the big crown by wearing gloves.
  • However, the textile strap is effortlessly adjustable due to a smooth clamping system.
  • Indeed, the clasp functions like the buckle on an aircraft's seatbelt.

The Oris Big Crown Propilot Date features a 41mm stainless steel case, a date-display dial and an automatic Sellita SW 220 movement.
