From our friends at the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association,
The Hawaiian Lifeguard Association watch collection was created to serve the needs of these lifeguards on the job, and launched just as the organization celebrated its 100th Anniversary. The watches are made to stand up to the enormous power of the ocean, but are also excellent knock-around watches, suitable for most any water environment, whether in Hawaii’s big waves or less challenging situations. Plus, they’re just cool looking casual lifestyle timepieces, perfect for everyday wear. The HLA watches are made with 316L stainless steel cases and bezels, 120 click unidirectional ratcheting bezels for diving, screw in case backs and crown to ensure 200 meters water resistance. In addition, the watches have extremely reliable Japanese quartz movements, highly scratch resistant K1 glass crystals, and comfortable genuine NBR rubber straps with patterned back for ventilation.
