Like Ross Kemp in a tutu, this watch is as tough as it is eye-catching. Designed by Dee & Ricky (famous in design circles for their work with Lego), it’s shock and water-resistant to 200 metres. It’s even protected against the time-altering effects of powerful magnetic fields. Perfect then, if you’re a jet-setting, deep-sea diver who also happens to work on a scrapyard.
