Like the title says; which is the best watch for travelling? All round/environment specific etc etc.

It seems everything else is covered in great detail, or is time-keeping not as important when travelling?

Perfect travel watch IMHO is the Rolex GMT Master....never let me down, rugged and it'll last a lifetime.

Nice recommendation considering 99.9% of the people on this board would rather spend that kind of money on their perfect travel watch instead of actually travelling

I normally go for those that they sell/issue in the army.. real durable stuff, takes loads of abuse. (which seems to be the main reason they are built for, besides telling time, that is)

I have a timex digital watch I use when travelling. It's cheap, so if it gets lost I won't be upset. It has an alarm which can be useful, although it's not really loud enough to wake me up in the morning, especially if I'm wearing earplugs! It has a light and a timer, also useful. I think that any watch like this would be good. I wouldn't want to wear anything expensive or flashy....I don't want any theives to notice me

I use a NITE MX20 watch, They are very good but a tad expensive.

Something cheap enough no one wants to steal it, but is waterproof and reliable.

I travel with a sekonda. Cost me 12 pounds a couple of years ago. I can smash it, swim in it, trade it for a taxi ride if need be, and I won't get mugged for it. It also tells the time in every country in the world if you can add and subtract;). Awesome.
