My humble opinion is you can travel with any watch, but I have a Suunto, and that one comes very handy when traveling.
Mine has a thermometer, altitude meter, barometer, compass, alarm clock among many other features.

You'll find them in almost every outdoor shop, but they are pricy, they start at around €180.

One big advantage of these watches is you can change the battery yourself without special equipment, you only need a coin!

Been hoping to get a look at a Vostok Amphibian (Russian divers watch) though it might be a bit of a monster in real life. Good points are, they're mechanical and waterproof to a long way down, so should take all sorts of crap. Good price too.

Hiya, I prefer something water proof/resistant, dual time zones, has an alarm & lights up in the dark...

You talking about the Casio f91w? Heard there's a free holiday on offer - somewhere in Cuba. ;)

Wow fabyomama, your very close to the mark, I have the 300m dive version of that watch also from the early 90's! I'm impressed you picked that out of my description...

A waterproof watch.
like to have's: long battery or solar powered.
an alarm and dual time might be handy,
apart from that unless your serious treking/diving/running everything else is a gimick

The 3/4 things you mentioned is all I need from my watch to be honest!could you recommend any?
