The Spanish word for soldier, Soldado is inspired by the productive saltwater flat in Guanaja, Honduras, beneath which lies the monument commemorating where Columbus landed in the 1500s. No soldiers remain, just a long sandy beach and permit and bonefish with saluting tails in the air. Equally stylish on a man or woman, Soldado is like a classic watch: it speaks to the wearer’s appreciation for classic style and time-tested functionality. Whether celebrating the day’s action on the water or enjoying a serene sunset from shore with your arm around the waist of a loved one, the Soldado is your ace.
Quite possibly the most enduring frame style in the world, and still looking good after all these years. Rather than mess with a classic, we’ve just refined it with top-tier hinges and finishes, as well as our polarized lenses with proprietary LAPIS technology to block blue light and glare for enhanced visual acuity. You may tire of the Top Gun quotes—or not—but you’ll never go out of style.
