Essential Summer Gear Guide

by Cathay Che


Watches walk a fine line between decoration and dirty work: They've gotta tell time, but they've gotta look good, too. The demands of summer—salt water, perspiration, the 4:01 to Montauk—make the choices even trickier. The Chanel J12 is gorgeous and chunky in all summer-white, and the compressed ceramic links mean no more irritated skin on hot and humid days. Meanwhile, active guys are often on the hunt for a performance watch that travels from office to white water. Oakley's brand-new Holeshot has a hard-core stainless-steel case and a dual-seal crown that will withstand water pressure of up to 330 feet. Use the Swiss-made chronograph to clock your time on the Ironman—or speed through old Survivor episodes on TiVo.
