Freestyle Durbo watch

Durbo It takes a big man to wear a big watch. How big a watch? Over half a pound of alpha-surfer back-in-black badness. If the Terminator surfed, he would wear the Freestyle Durbo. Plus he could fix himself with the built in fin key, a flip-out allen wrench tucked into the left side of the case, compatible with FCS and Futures fin systems.

Durbo is the signature watch for pro surfer Bede Durbidge, but the water features will be interesting to all hydrophiles. The Durbo is water resistant to 100m, suitable for anything short of deep water diving. The buttons are what Freestyle calls Hydro Pushers, meaning feel free to operate them underwater. The feature set is rounded out with date/day, dual time/alarms, optional hourly chime,stopwatch with lap function, and a timer with preset heats of 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 45 and 60 minutes.

For such a heavy tool the Durbo wears comfortably on the wrist, thanks to an extra-wide polyurethane band. The buckle is backed up with a snug keeper that cinches tight to a notch on the band, so go ape in the tubes. Freestyle knows the kind of abuse watersports can dish out to a timepiece, and the Durbo is a tank of a watch that should get you through all your H2O-my-god moments.
