Rip Curl Oxford Watch

I have had, and constantly used my Rip Curl Oxford watch and it offers a genuine timeless style and design with a silver stainless steel look, looking very attractive in any situation, on the water or not. Using it in all situations, I was surprised as to its durability and how resistant it is to scratches and knocks, especially the stainless steel band which tacks the most bashes from everyday use.

The clasp is highlighted as being a single release clasp for ease. The clasp itself is sturdy, durable and as mentioned, easy to use. It closes easily and once closed will not open without direct intervention by the user.

The band or strap is made up of stainless steel links with an extra link supplied in the box to ensure that the strap can be adjusted to fit most wrists. The strenght in the links is second to none and you can be rest assured that the band will not break. This combined with the quality clasp makes for peace of mind in any situation.

The face and body of the watch, is like the rest of the Rip Curl watch, made to the highest quality, scratch resistance and has a timeless style.

The rip curl branding on the Oxford watch is subtle but effective with a small logo on the watch face, a engraved Rip Curl logo on the band The Rip Curl name is also engraved into the clasp and the back of the watch has the full Rip Curl logo.

The watch has a timeless classic style and will make this the perfect gift for the man in your life.

The box for the Rip Curl Oxford watch, comes branded and protects the watch well.
