We’re big fans of Filson’s rough and rugged flagship Mackinaw watch and its highly-durable in-field function. And it looks the part, with its large case, 43mm dial, and burly construction. Suffice to say, it’s a big watch. If you prefer your timepieces in a slimmer, dressier package, however, then you might prefer the Filson Skagit Field Watch.
Produced in the same materials and construction methods as the Mackinaw, the timepiece should bring the same rough-and-tumble qualities that will keep it ticking day in and day out in the field. Whether you work in the outdoors or simply need a reliable timekeeper during your backcountry adventures, this thing looks fit to do the job, all while coming with a slimmer profile and a city-friendlier style.
The Filson Skagit Field Watch has a busy-looking dial with large hour indicators, minute indicators outside it, and 24-hour indicators in a smaller ring inside. That dial comes housed in a slim 40mm stainless steel case, with a screw-down crown and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal to reduce glare when the sun is out. It uses Shinola’s Argonite 517 quartz movement to ensure reliable timekeeping, with a water resistance rating of 20 ATM. The watch is offered in four dial and case color combinations, each with an accompanying Horween leather strap.
Available now, pricing for the Filson Skagit Field Watch starts at $550.
