TL;DR: what is your favorite cheap beater watch and what makes it so tough? Toughest luxury watches?
Over the years we have seen things like water resistance become customary in watches. The G-Shock raised the bar in terms of shock resistance and longevity. But what is your favorite watch to go through hell and back with? G-Shock still seems to be market leaders in this domain, but surely there must be some variety, some competition. Also what luxury company makes the watch that can receive the most abuse?
Watches are so damn cool but the fragility is always the biggest turn off for me. As an extreme guy, to have a watch truly become something I grow accustomed to having on my arm, it must also be robust to avoid my impending heartbreak.
