Here at Peloton, we’re about living an active lifestyle and looking good while doing it. So we’re constantly seeking out products that complement our busy lives, especially watches. To those questioning if we really wear watches on rides, the kind that don’t tell you watts or when to turn: Yes, it’s kind of our thing. A beautiful timepiece is a constant companion—even on the bike.
There’s one watch in particular that we’ve had our eye on for a while. Blending the utilitarian aesthetic and durability of WWII-era military watches with modern touches like a solar-powered movement, the Centric Instruments Lightwell Chronograph checks all the boxes for an everyday-wear watch. You might say we’ve been a bit obsessed.
Its surgical grade 316L stainless steel case and caseback offer everyday-wear durability and corrosion resistance, while a sapphire crystal—second only to diamond on the Mohs hardness scale—protects the dial. And the integrated screwdown crown and caseback provide 100 meters of water resistance. Add in a Seiko VS75A solar movement that stores 24 hours’ worth of charge from just 2 minutes of sunlight, and can store up to 6 months of charge, and you have a watch ready to go anywhere and take on anything. And when the day’s adventure gives way to trading stories over pints in the evening, a phosphorescent coating on the watch hands and hour markers ensure you always know the time at a glance.
Now, we’re excited to reveal a limited run of the Centric Lightwell featuring a custom 20mm Peloton Blue elastic strap. Constructed from highly-durable elastic nylon webbing, this quick-drying strap expands as your arms flex for a comfortable and secure fit. A subtle Peloton logo adorns the silver buckle.
We’re offering this watch at pelotonshop.com with either a black or ivory dial along with a one-year subscription to Peloton for $275—new or renew. We think it’s the perfect Father’s Day gift. It’s what we’d want, at least.
