Review of the Best 3 Sailing Watches
Big Yellow Optimum Time Watch - is an ideal choice for sailors requiring larger screen sizes and digital display. The best feature of the ''big yellow'' is that it can be mounted on the mast (with the included boom bracket) or wrist with its large Velcro strap, making it the perfect combination for both dinghy sailors and larger yachts. It includes all of the racing countdown features including a 5 minute sequence and an ABS case to protect
Optimium Time Sailing Watch OS001 - Without doubt our best selling sailing watch! The OS001 is the perfect all rounder with all the features you would expect including a very useful countdown sequence that beeps loudly on 5,4,1, and 0 minutes- perfect for sailing! The back light is strong enough for darker cloudy conditions and the plastic removable strap is very durable and protects against salt damage, with a large range of holes for different wrist sizes. Optimum time also offer a year long guarantee so you can be assured of quality and longevity. We have repeatedly tested the OS001 watch and it has never let us down, all at a bargain price.
Casio Sea Pathfinder Tide Watch - This product has been on the market for as long as we can remember, simply because its great design and tidal graph feature makes it an essential piece of kit to any sailor - with tidal information just seconds away. The display is large in comparison to the size of the watch, and buttons are easy to use and in the correct places meaning you tend to hit the correct button even if you forget. An absolute bargain!
