Pairs Well With: Helson Gauge

Articles | Pairs Well With | Series | Style | 02.17.2012

The Helson Gauge is a beautiful watch with a distinct look and serious dive capabilities, but as Helson says on their website, it may not be “everybody’s cup of tea”.  Modeled after a vintage depth gauge, the Gauge itself is a robust 47 mm in diameter and 22 mm tall, making it one of the larger watches on the market.  But all this size is for a good reason, as it adds to the desired aesthetic of a vintage dive instrument.  The case of the Gauge is titanium with a bronze bezel, and the watch features a vintage domed sapphire crystal.  Inside the case is a 25 Jewel ETA 2824-2 automatic movement.  The watch also features an astounding 3500 M water resistance.  We’re huge fans of Helson here at worn&wound and the Gauge is no exception.  Given its size, we thought it may make for an interesting and fun centerpiece for a Pairs Well With.  Included are several items that complement the vintage nautical aesthetic of the Gauge, and some that help the watch shine in a more contemporary wardrobe.
