    For traveling, I like my Riseman, or my 5600, as they have the multiple time zone feature. Comes in handy when I am on the other side of the world -

    Any G-Shock is good for travelling, atomic or non-atomic.

    My current pick would be the G-2500B, with it's simple 'time-swap' feature.

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    That's my pick too !! But with I may throw the GW5000 in aswell. I guess I'll keep the Riseman for my EU trips and the 5 series for my USA trips.

    My preferred G's for travelling are the DW-5600E or GW-M5600. These are not very big and don't attract much attention. A nice feature of the GW-M5600 are the multiple timezones that are programmed in the watch, the DW-5600E doesn't have that.

    +1 I think this one makes the cut.

    I agree with Tribe that, for most people, any G-Shock will do fine. You don't have to worry about bumps and bruises; they are reliable and more than accurate enough; they are easy to read; and they are, for the most part, easy to replace if lost or stolen. Also, basic G-Shock features like an alarm, a STW and a CDT can be very useful while traveling.

    Since we're not "most people", we're WIS's, we can be a bit pickier (or nuttier).

    I like the GW-2500 for the features already mentioned.



    I think the G-2300 (original version) is ideal for travel. It has a world time feature -- making travel across time zones very, very easy. It has a "data bank" feature. I never, ever use that feature, but I did while traveling with the family. I put the family's passport info in there and found it to be more convenient than digging out the passports or even my Blackberry every time I had to fill out a form that required passport data. (customs/immigration; rental car agency; hotel check in; etc.) Five alarms that can be set in a variety of ways (daily, by date, etc.) A 24 hour STW and 24 hour CDT.

    It won't write home to Mom by itself and it can't predict the weather -- minor flaws, it seems to me. In my view, it is just about the perfect travel watch.



    I like bringing an ABC watch along on trips -- even though for run of the mill tourism and/or business travel that are lots of other ways to get the weather. So, I'll generally pack either a Riseman or my favorite Pathfinder (PAW-1300G-IV):
