You’ll see a handful of field watches on this guide, simply because they are considered one of the paradigms when it comes to affordability in the industry. Titanium watches, on the other hand, are not known for such things and can be quite pricey when it comes down to it. That’s why it’s so surprising that Bertucci’s A-2T clocks in well under the $200 mark, and also gives you 200m of water resistance, classic dial styling with a 24-hour track, and an R-Type hardened mineral crystal.
The A-2T is part of the company’s “Original Classics” line, and as such, it sports one of the most sought-after designs in the industry. This well-made field watch features a 40mm sandblasted matte finish, a lightweight titanium construction, and a patented two-ply nylon band that references the genre’s most prolific variants. Our main gripe may be with the cleanliness of the dial text, which puts “Titanium” and “200m” side by side rather than stacking them. However, if you’re looking for a watch that’s capable, affordable, and still looks the part, the 12122 A-2T might be one of the best options on the market today.
