    Iceland trip... Which watch(es) should I take?

    Wow, I can't believe I'm finally going to Iceland. We've just booked for a few nights in early January 2011 and as it's somewhere I've wanted to go for years, I really can't wait. We're hoping to see the Northern Lights and be proper tourists for once

    One thing I want to do there is go to the Blue Lagoon hot spring. So basically, I'll be going from -2 celsius outside of the water to +xx celsius inside the water. I could of course take off my watch but I'd prefer to know if watches can put up with this sort of change without any trouble.

    My choices of watch to take would be:

    - One of my Riseman G-Shocks
    - My TAG Heuer Quartz aquaracer 300M
    - My TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M automatic

    The TAG Heuers are properly dive certified etc and are screwbacks so would they cope better with the temperature change... or is it something now to be even bothered about and I should stop being such a geek

    Also, any tips on visiting Iceland would be greatly appreciated... including if anyone knows of anywhere there that sells G-Shocks etc

    I couldn't trust myself to go to Iceland. I'd end up buying one of these.

    Other than that, I'm quite envious. One of the most fascinating places on earth.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Enjoy your trip !

    Bring a Riseman and a TAG. I always take 2 watches when traveling, and alternate wearing them.

    Ooooh they look nice. I think I'll take a very small amount of money with me so I don't end up buying something like that

    I might have to give that volcano a bit of a dirty look though... caused us so much grief back in May!

    Thanks. To be honest, I'm thinking of my Orange MIRO Riseman and then a TAG nut if the Riseman would be fine with the temperature change then I might even just take that with me.
