For 20 years I wore the same watch—a Swiss Army model. I liked its simplicity, reliability, and conservative styling. Every six months or so, however, I’d have to buy a replacement leather strap, due to damage from salt and sun. But my most recent replacement was my last—Swiss Army no longer supports my old-fashioned model, I was told. So a hunt ensued, during which I dallied with Hamilton, Tag Heuer, Citizen, and even a rather fetching Seamaster from Omega.

I went with the rubber strap, by the way.
