Nautica Valencia WatchRegular beachgoers want watches that can survive a dip in the surf, but all too often the ones that fit the bill are big and bulky. Nautica bucks the trend, offering functionality and feminine style with this delicate Valencia watch.

This is really good looking watch, with a dazzling deep blue face offset by silvery numbers and hands and a white leather band. Navy blue stitching in the strap complements the colored face to create a look which is much more elegant than water resistant watches tend to be.

Unfortunately, this Nautica watch doesn't quite stack up to those competitors on a practical front. It's only water resistant up to 165 feet, so while it'll work for a dip in the ocean it won't suit serious scuba divers. The leather band also hasn't been treated to survive the surf, so don't be surprised if it starts to deteriorate after a summer or two. It'll be easily replaced with a more durable resin one, but something tells me this won't look half as chic.

That said, Nautica doesn't do a bad job of striking that balance between style and substance. The Valencia's case is made from tough stainless steel, and it's backed by a five-year manufacturer's warranty so the watch itself should last for several beach seasons.

The Valencia's $100 asking price seems quite reasonable for a watch that will work on the beach and away from the shore for many years.
