    Question Traveling to Ireland - Which watch to bring?

    My wife and I are heading to Ireland for a 9 days and we will be driving through the country to see the sites. I am not one to travel with multiple watches, nor am I one to leave all the nice stuff at home. Which watch is most appropriate?

    Explorer 1 - Pros: The obvious choice. 36mm under the radar. Recently serviced so water tight. Literally says Explorer which is what we will be doing. Cons: Was a gift from my dad and has the most sentimental value.

    Daytona C: Pros: My favorite watch. Newish purchase and needs new memories. Cons: Robbery?

    Hublot 42 Ti Ceramic: Pros: New purchase, sporty and can take a beating. Fun watch with no sentimental value. Cons: Definitely not under-the-radar. Pretty expensive watch to travel with.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    I'd go with the explorer - it's in the name! But seriously it's super versatile and yes I think it's smart to think worry about theft when you're in touristy areas.

    Another Vote for the explorer

    It's s tough enough to handle anything you throw at it, versatile and it slips under the radar

    You should be fine in Ireland with whatever you choose but the last thing you want to be doing on holiday is worrying about your watch.

    Driving through Ireland to see the sights. The watch you need to bring needs no introduction.
    The name says it.
    Explorer.

    I took a 36mm Railmaster on my recent travels because it’s small and light; I’d suggest the Explorer for the same reason.

    Seiko Spring Drive was my wedding watch, Rolex Datejust was my anniversary watch, but I call Oris home.

    Another vote for the Explorer. Its classic, but under the radar. Perfect for travel.

    Personally, I'd take the Hublot and spend a lot of time wandering the streets of London.

    Either the Exp or the Daytona. I think on balance that the Explorer just has it as it’s a little more understated.
