The latest version of Paul & Shark’s Typhoon 20000 jacket ($1,365) not only protects the dauntless seafarer from gusts of wind and rain, but also shields his mobile devices from the elements. Pockets on the inside and outside of the garment are made with a microthin membrane that prevents water penetration yet is comfortably breathable. In fairer weather, this lightweight jacket looks great with a sporty wool sweater ($485). Paul & Shark, 212.452.9868, www.paulshark.it —Jill Newman

The tried-and-true boat shoe, with its skidproof, grooved sole, was originally designed in the 1930s to provide traction on slippery surfaces. This season, it is inspiring a range of stylish designs, such as Jimmy Choo’s canvas-and-mock-crocodile version ($495), Bally’s multicolor nubuck model ($395), and Ermenegildo Zegna’s suede interpretation, which comes in a range of colors, including this particularly buoyant red ($425).

The latest iteration of Graham’s diver’s watch, the Chronofighter Oversize Prodive Professional ($15,750), offers both a depth rating and chronograph operability up to 2,000 feet—twice that of previous models—and a convenient mono-pusher system that divers can operate even while wearing gloves. With a neon yellow strap and a black dial featuring two types of luminescence, the watch proves that aesthetics are important above and below sea level.
