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.
