    Help with holiday watch?

    Ok so I'm packing today for a week in Tenerife lying by the pool sweating like a fat girl in a donut shop.

    I'm taking my Edifice as it is my dress watch. Done.

    For the pool however I'm dithering between the very obvious choice of my G7900 Rescue Red, the small but perfectly formed 7710 or the more informative PRG240.

    I am concerned about sweating into the Orange Nato on the Protrek, but will enjoy playing with altitude and Barometer at various points.

    Will the Nato wash out? I'm guessing so.

    The 7900 is the perfect pool watch except this time I'm taking my 2 yr old and think that perhaps the green 7710 is better since it is physically smaller - useful when handling a squirming infant.

    What to do what to do.

    I never had this problem before, life was easy with a dress watch and a beater. Haha.

    Buying another at duty free is tempting (ga100 standard, gw6900 solar/atomic or GLX5600 in white are likely choices) but no doubt still falls under the current buying ban.

    I think a last minute grab is going to decide it.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Lol I love you guys!

    However remind me not to ask for help with decision making haha


    Packed the 240. If the Nato stains then it's not the end of the world and I know I can play for ages with it. Plus orange is just a great holiday colour!

    Packed the rest into a bag to go next door for safe keeping.

    Got a wink from the 510 too which kinda tugged but it'll be a fond reunion.

    We are all inclusive near Playa Pariso, near Adeje I think, certainly West Side over looking Vallehermoso (I think it is spelt).

    Can't wait!

    The PRG-240 is a good choice wth its thermometer, to check your frying temperature by the pool!

    Also sunrise/sunset times can be useful. The compass can come in handy if you go out and about.

    I took mine on my last holiday in May.

    Mind you, as you know, one watch is not enough when you are suffering from the 'sickness' so these are the ones I took with me.

    Mitch I like your style. However it could be the fastest divorce in history if I tried that.
