I like Citizen’s new ProMaster Eco-Drive Altichron. The watch features a compass and an altimeter both of which are electronically controlled but displayed analog. Once an altitude is established, it can be marked by lining up the zero mark on the rotating inner bezel with the yellow altimeter hand. The watch is rated to measure height to 10,000 m (~32,808 ft.). It’s depth rated to 300 m (~984 ft.) though I don’t believe it measures depth.

It’s an Eco-Drive (solar powered) model but can live in the dark for eleven months before needing a recharge.

List price is $850 but it can be found for $567 at Princeton Watches. The model # is BN5030-06E. Quite a handsome watch.
