    I wouldn´t play tennis or polo or golf with any of my mechanical watches. Here´s an interesting thread regarding "golf & watches": https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthr...olf#post241055

    Jogging, biking, paddle should be no problem with a mechanical watch like the B 42 is.

    Like Mike said, I'd avoid these "impact" related sports when wearing any mechanical watch. But swimming, jogging, bicycling or else no problem at all.
    Below my "beach watch" on an aftermarket strap, on the beach I wear her on the steel bracelet:

    I golf with my B42 GMT. No issues. If you want to baby your watch feel free, nobody here has ever documented any real problems with golfing and wearing one's watch.

    With ya. Go to a Country Club and look on the links to see how many Rolex's you see.

    I've owned many fine watches (TAG, Rolex, Omega, Ulysse Nardin, and Kobold) while running and gunning on the pistol range. It's rather funny; I was far more concerned about falling down on the gravel and concrete and busting my watch than what damage I might experience related to the recoil of the gun. With that in mind, can golf really be such a risk to a well-made watch?

    Just my 2 cents...

    Is a human wrist stronger than a well made watch? Lots of small bones and ligaments, how can they take it and a watch can't?
