    Jumping on the bandwagon: What watch should I take with me?

    Hello ladies and gents,

    I'm going to be traveling for a couple weeks, so naturally I'm going to seek the advice of my fellow WUSers as to what watch should accompany me. I'm going to be hiking some of the time, as well as other outdoor activities.

    First thing's first; here is the G-Shock I'm taking, in addition to the watch WUS decides.



    And here are the other three I'm debating between.

    The Ball a.k.a. the Black Zombie (WUSer Lambo23 coined this name because I call it my zombie-survival ultimate tool watch )



    Tissot



    Seiko OM



    Or should I take a different one? My collection is in my profile if interested, but I think this is a solid group to choose from. My vintage watches are definitely out of the question, however.

    I look forward to your thoughts.

    The Ball. Or the Zodiac. Personally, I'd only take one watch though. Why bring the G-Shock?

    I think I'd take the Ball. The Tissot seams a bit dressy for general traveling (unless your trip has a dressy affair, then I'd take this for sure) and the Monster is too sporty since you're already taking a sporty G-Shock. the Ball is also sporty, but can easily be dressed up, plus it looks very cool.
    My little friends:

    Casio G-Shock GW-5000
    Casio G-Shock GD-350
    Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400
    Kienzle Chronograph
    Omega Speedmaster PRO
    Orient Star Classic
    Rolex Submariner
    Seiko 007 Diver
    Seiko Turtle Diver
    Seiko SARB 021

    Seiko 7A28 Chrono

    And a few other fun watches ...

    More details about the trip, please.

    I'll be traveling to India in July for a couple of weeks, and I'm taking the Seiko Pepsi for the outdoorsy/touristy stuff and a Parnis for a dress watch. The idea is that I wouldn't really care if I lost either.

    I will be staying at a vacation house that my family owns. Normally I would be concerned about losing a watch or the like, but not in this case. I've taken the Ball once and it's been fine.

    As for the G-Shock, I figured I'd bring it a long just in case something comes up where I definitely wouldn't consider wearing one of the other three.

    Now that would be excessive. Because, you know, two isn't.
