Need a watch that can take a beating? A watch that can go underwater way deeper than most humans are allowed? Need an alarm for those early flights, and a light so you can check the time in the middle of the night when you are awake and totally jet-lagged? Do you need a stopwatch for God-knows-what reason? Need a watch that can do all of that and look completely non-descript? Because, do you really want to wander the streets in any developing country with your fancy “time piece” that costs as much as the locals make in a year? No. No, you don’t.
The watch you want for traveling is the classic Casio G-Shock.
Yes, it’s been around for more than 30 years. Yes, it looks like you play Dungeons and Dragons and it’s 1983. However, for less than $40 you will have a watch that will handle constant abuse for a couple decades.
