Diamond-cut silvered hands and Super LumiNova BGW9-coated indices ensure outstanding legibility, while the small seconds sub-dial at six o’clock adds a hint of vintage opulence.

A 2.6mm thick sapphire crystal glass with an interior anti-reflective coating offers unparalleled durability and clarity. Water-resistant up to 200 meters (660 feet), the Paramo is suitable for professional marine activities and demanding water sports.

    Plenty happy with how the Paramo looks on my wrist. The case and bracelet are built to be worn in any occasion without the slightest concern. Glad that the sapphire crystal is so thick and double domed, it makes scratching or shattering near impossible. Thank you for making this watch so un-killable!

    You get quite a bit of watch for your money. High-quality sapphire crystal and dive-level water resistance are something that you don’t see often at the this price point. I’m also very happy with both the metal and rubber watch bands that are included. I switch to the rubber strap when I’m at the gym. The steel bracelet is quite dressy and very sturdy.

  3. Phil K (verified owner)

    It’s a classy watch, but it doesn’t feel cold or austere thanks to the nice polished finishing on the case, bracelet, as well as on the hands and markers in the dial. It’s built like a true tool watch, and I am glad that it has 600ft of water resistance, so that I never have to take it off.

  4. Andy P. (verified owner)

    I was looking for a dressier sport watch, and this Paramo is a perfect fit in style and practicality. I have other mechanical watches, but I was looking for a quartz watch that I wouldn’t have to set every time that I forget to wind it. It’s very accurate, and looks great!

  5. Kevin (verified owner)

    I have Rolex, Omega, and Grand Seiko in my watch box; and I am very impressed with the quality of the Paramo. The watch doesn’t feel flimsy or fragile in the least bit. The crown feels very rugged and the sapphire glass is also very strong. The Paramo has earned it’s place in the rotation as a fully capable dress and sport watch that I can take anywhere and not worry about it. Thank you for the great customer service.

  6. Joey R. (verified owner)

    Happy with how great it looks in person. It feels like it’s built pretty well, and I’m looking forward to wearing it a lot.

  7. Joseph K. (verified owner)

    I’m thrilled with my Paramo. The fit and finish of this watch are impeccable. It is really elegant and I have been wearing it daily.

  8. Ron W. (verified owner)

    Very nice watch, that wears very comfortably without pulling on arm hairs or stressing my wrist. The face is very serious and business like, but the polished hands and hour markings give it some flash. 200m water resistance is perfect for everyday wear in and out of the office.

  9. Niko (verified owner)

    Classy, yet eye catching. Great design. It combines the elements of a high horology sport watch with the durability of a tool watch. I’m not afraid to wear it anywhere because of the thick sapphire crystal and the high water resistance.

  10. Dwight F. (verified owner)

    I wear this as a change-up when I don’t want to wear my Omega, but I still want something that looks nice and will stand up to harsh conditions at work. It looks really good and feels solid on the wrist. It’s a great value for the price.

  11. Jayce K. (verified owner)

    This is a stunning watch. The polishing is wonderful, without being overdone. The sector dial is really nice, the textured portion and the sunburst outer rim balance each other well. The rubber band is very comfortable and high-quality, as is the steel bracelet. Very unique.

  12. Matthew J. (verified owner)

    Very impressed with the watch. It has become one of my favorites in my collection. It is refined with plenty of water resistance and has got other great features.

  13. Bryan R. (verified owner)

    Really nice dial, elegant case and tough bracelet. The 60’s era vintage rubber strap is both sporty and stylish. It’s comfortable, and I see the high quality construction. I’m very happy with my watch!

  14. Ted G. (verified owner)

    Thrilled with my Paramo and wear it with confidence because of the great specs.

  15. Leo D. (verified owner)

    I am a long time horology enthusiast with a ten watch collection. When I first discovered this brand, I was instantly drawn towards the Paramo. Mostly because it is an American watch company with interesting designs. Now that I have it in hand, I can say that it is worth the price. The Paramo’s design is unique and modern. The size is ideal, and feels great on the wrist. The rubber strap is very sporty and the bracelet allows you to dress it up. It’s not a homage or copy, yet it has certain design elements that are classic and timeless. I highly recommend this classy timepiece.

    Nicely made watch. Happy that I can support an American watch brand 🙂
