Which watch would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island? Actually, it doesn't even have to be a desert island-could be jungle, desert, wherever. Which watch would you want to see you through such an ordeal?
I think I'd pick the new solar atomic Mudman (9000, I believe). My guess is that it's basically the most resilient watch out there (among mass production watches) to the wide variety of stresses a watch might face. The mud resistant property specifically sets it apart from other g-shocks. The solar capability means you'd have the time when its competitors had run flat.
I thought about a Pathfinder, but the Mudman just seems tougher. I realize that it might be nice to have the compass and such, but I'm more interested in the durability aspects of this question.
