Every guy needs a take-it-anywhere sport watch, something substantial and solid, rugged enough for whatever the day may bring and cool enough to strut out once the sun goes down. To find such a watch, look no further than the sport-watch specialists at Viceroy and the watch shown here – Ref. No. 432203-55.
The case, which measures 46 mm in diameter, is a little bit larger than average without reaching into the oversized category. The crown of the watch features narrow fluting – crown guards extending from the case protect it from snags and from direct shocks. The case and stationary bezel are made from stainless steel. (Note the etched-out markers in the bezel, which will not fade or scratch away.) When discussing an all-around robust material, stainless steel is at the top of the list, unmatched in its combination of durability, affordability and lasting good looks.
Watch bracelets are typically considered important but interchangeable matching accessories. In this instance however, the stainless steel bracelet is a featured element, essential to the watch’s overall disposition. It consists of three-piece links, with the largest of the three links running through the middle. Because the middle links are polished and the outside links are brushed, the bracelet transitions more easily from casual to formal. Matching end-links ensure a smooth transition from case to bracelet. The folding clasp allows for micro-adjustments and has a flip-lock.
The symmetrical dial layout showcases large numerals and hour markers with raised outlines, which, like the hour and minute hands, are coated with luminous paint. A second-and-minute track appears around the outside of the dial. Viceroy keeps the dial text to a minimum with just the brand name and water-resistance rating (330 feet), both centered vertically at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively.

A few different textured patterns make up the black background of the dial: the center circle is smooth, the ring below the hour markers has a wave pattern and the narrow ring beneath the second track is comprised of thin concentric circles. In all, this subtle mixture is just enough to break up the homogeneity of the large black canvas without being over-ornamented.
Sometimes good design stands out for what isn’t included: this three-handed watch stands out for its simplicity and legibility rather than for any decorative touches or additional functions. And thanks to the well-paired steel bracelet, it has proportional balance from top to bottom. Make the Viceroy 432203-55 your take-it-anywhere sport watch today.
