Ratio Skysurfer Pilot Black Textured Dial Leather Automatic RTS310 200M Mens Watch
Ratio Skysurfer has been ranked among the best men's watches by Wrist Enthusiast.
This young, Singaporean brand might not be on your radar, but their skysurfer collection offers a refined take on the WWII-era pilot's watch. Contrary to strict, military usage, it offers more versatility and is one of the few pilot’s watches with a diving capability and is a far more affordable option. The ruggedness is in its build; not in its looks.

I gave up on smartwatches some time ago. While they had their conveniences, I never truly liked them and found myself bothered by constant notifications. So, I returned to my preference for simple, sturdy, and easy-to-read timepieces. I enjoy my G-Shock and Citizen Diving watch, but I've come across cheap watches that are simply not worth the money. Despite their expensive appearance, they quickly disappoint. In my experience, with a bit of smart shopping, one can find a watch that will last for years around the $200 price range, with no limit beyond that.
This particular watch falls below that price level but above the realm of cheap 'luxury' watches that saturate the market. It neither looks cheap nor excessively expensive. The stainless steel construction lends it a solid and elegant appearance without being flashy. However, the face of the watch is the one aspect that falls short in terms of aesthetics. Its grain resembles that of a plastic binder, giving it a somewhat inferior look. I opted to replace the black wristband with a brown one I had lying around, as grain leather never truly looks good.
Damn this is a fine watch. The craftmanship is superb. The quality is top notch, the back plate is in such detail that you can feel it. The movement is seriously smooth. The watch is meant for a sport that I don't participate in, but from what that instruction pamphlet says this is the watch you want. 200m water resistant. Screw down engraved crown for added protection against sweat, water, dust and all that crap. I couldn't be happier to have it. I think you will be too. Enjoy
