Well-built, rugged watches that look good are hard to come by. Generally, you have to choose between the two; functionality or looks. Not anymore, however, thanks to a team of local entrepreneurs who have launched Mountain Active Co. Full of practical features, the brand’s range of sleek and functional watches is ideal for everyday adventurers. The people behind the brand lead active lifestyles themselves, so they knew exactly what their pieces needed. The Rayseeker and the Earthlight are their first two designs.
The Rayseeker is stacked with features that make it a great choice of wristwatch, whether your day is going to involve meeting after meeting, or chasing waves in the sun. It sports a nylon NATO strap, 40 mm 316L stainless steel case, and a hardened mineral crystal face. Four different colour options are available, changing the colour of the outer ring on the watch dial and strap.
The movement in the Rayseeker is Japanese Quartz, and interestingly enough, it’s powered by light. The battery is also solar powered; according to the brand, just two and a half minutes of sunlight gives the watch a full day’s charge. The watch offers 10 ATM water resistance, which is leagues more than what a regular wristwatch will give you. This means that you can safely hop in the shower or go for a swim with it on and it’ll be fine.
Crafted from carbon fibre, the Earthlight is durable yet lightweight. The strap is black silicon while the dial is available in three colour variations. The watch features a 3D resin dial with hardened mineral crystal lens, plus it has a neat rotating carbon fibre composite bezel.
Like the Rayseeker, the Earthlight offers 10 ATM water resistance. It’s sleek enough that you can wear it as an everyday piece, and it’ll not only look great but will be able to keep up with whatever your lifestyle entails.Shop: Mountain Active Co.
