Later on in the year I will be travelling from Europe to California for a month on vacation. I have a small and humble watch collection which is made up of watches I have purchased for different occasions and scenarios. Formal, sport, smart causal etc. None of them however are really suitable to cross over and suit the purpose of the other.
For this vacation (and others beyond) I would like to travel light and take just one watch. One that suits for the travelling, dual time once there, accurate, for by a pool, at the beach, out for the day and not that I would call it formal but a little more smart casual on occasions in the evening. Whether that be jeans and a T-shirt or chino shorts / t-shirt for example.
I have my eye on the GMW-B5000 for this purpose. Do you think this would be a good choice?
My only slight concern is that it doesn't have sapphire crystal. For those that have and wear this watch, is that an issue or does the bezel keep most things away from the glass?
