    Watches for a trip Overseas

    About a month ago, I went on a trip to Israel, Egypt and Turkey and was really hard-pressed not to take 10 watches...so I ended up taking a yellow Raysman, black G-2310, and my wedding present Citizen Eco-drive.

    The yellow Raysman was the workhorse and got almost all the wrist time. Here are a couple pics:



    The G-2310 was great - a real workhorse. I wore it to paint a few bomb shelters, as they needed a lot of TLC (as they aren't used very much, thank goodness).
    Here's a candid shot of me painting.


    I think the G-2310 looks better with the paint on it, rather than new!



    My one beef with the G-2310 is that I don't think you can use the alarm for the watch, if you want it to go off for the time in world time mode, (which is one of the reasons why I brought that one, instead of a GW-300).

    Any thoughts? Comments?
    Thanks!
    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    Those are great pictures. Nice to see you paint too. Bomb shelters must be very different from painting houses. When seeing your G-2300 I had to think about it's precursor....



    I sometimes think I should have left it this way. It shows the story

    BTW, what is TLC... The only thing what comes to my mind is this:



    Cheers,

    Tender Loving Care. The phrase comes from medicine, where doctors would prescribe 'TLC', often in terminal cases when further medical treatment was unlikely to have a useful effect.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Glad you had a good trip! I've taken multiple watches on trips many times, and almost always ended up wearing just one of them.
    Wear what you like.

    I always ending up wearing my Yellow Raysman or a Black Helios Frogman on vacation. I also take a waveceptor with me. The last time it was the GW-9000, as that was my only resin Waveceptor model back then.

    I would definitely bring my newly purchased atomic Gulfman on my next trip as it has world time and of course the atomic function. I've taken the MI 3 model and ICERC Frogman GW 205K on my last trip to Sydney.

    Re: Watches for a trip Overseas

    Just traveled myself for a week wearing only the GW-Muddy, and although I was only one time-zone over, the world time came in handy. I would guess that none of the g's allow you to set an alarm for a world-time; I ended up just setting it an hour off to match my home time...but seeing as how even THAT had me scratching my head for a moment , I think anytime I am going to be somewhere more than a day or two I will just change the home time zone, and switch world time over to my home-zone

    Re: Watches for a trip Overseas

    i now pretty much travel with my PAW1300T as my main watch, it got everything i need/want

    and i can change the time zone and the alarm will work just fine

    of course, i usually bring along another 1 or 2 watches as well (a must for WIS )

    Cool pics, Neil!


    I usually take a few watches with me when I travel, but the Seiko Brightz World Time has become my primary travel watch.
