Hook+Gaff - Sportfisher Series Watch


A product review write-up on the Hook+Gaff Sportfisher Series watch

Michael and the crew over at Hook+Gaff are doing some awesome work, crafting beautiful and functional watches. The Sportfisher's elegant design makes it perfect for a night out, but its rugged nature is ideal to take spearfishing in the pacific or for any other rugged activity the backcountry has to offer. Not to mention the comfort level far exceeded our expectations. If you're looking for a great watch and to support a company that cares about their community, then Hook+Gaff is the perfect place to be.

Sportfisher Black Watch

Hook+Gaff designed the Sportfisher Series with hardcore anglers in mind, the Sportfisher Black is built to be the ultimate sport watch during all hours of the day and night. The Sportfisher Black utilizes H3 technology to provide 24-hour illumination of the dial's hour markers and hands — meaning that you can head out before dawn and don’t have to stop adventuring when the sun sets.

Hook+Gaff integrated trigalight® glass tubes manufactured in Switzerland to create luminosity that leads the way during offshore pursuits at any time of day. As any angler knows, comfort is key. That’s why Hook+Gaff intentionally placed the crown on the left side of the dial, minimizing wrist irritation when you’re reeling in reds or scoping birds from a blind.

The left-side crown placement is unique and Hook+Gaff is the only watch out there that’s taken this step to improve wrist comfort. And not only is this performance-driven watch a force that can withstand the harsh elements included on a day in the water, but its black-on-black design offers a sleek, clean look.

H₃ Illumination Technology

Adventures aren’t limited to daylight hours, and now your watch visibility isn’t either, thanks to the H3 technology found in the Sportfisher Black - Black Dial. Swiss-made trigalight® glass tubes on the hour markers and hands provide self-powered illumination 24/7.

Comfortable Crown Placement

Comfort comes first for the Sportfisher Black - Black Dial. Unlike most watches on the market, Hook+Gaff intentionally places the crown on the left side of the dial so that it won’t dig into your wrist as you move.
