Field Watches are often overlooked by timepiece enthusiasts but those who prefer a rugged and compact timepiece should definitely consider this style as it is often perfect for EDC. Blending function and form is key to any field watch and few manage to accomplish this in as elegant a way as the Lightwell watch. Designed by Centric Instruments, this EDC timepiece offers high performance in a low-maintenance package.

At first glance, the Lightwell appears to be a common field watch, but with a few modern twists. The case comes in at 38mm and is comprised of 316L brushed stainless steel. The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a unique outer ring gives the face a depth of field view.

The internal movement of the Lightwell differs from most field watches as it utilizes solar power instead of a battery. A single minute in the sun can power the watch for a full day, while a full charge keeps the movement running for a full six months.
