    Which watch to abuse

    Ok. So, I'm really struggling with this one. I'm about to go on a four week trip around Australia and I'll be camping throughout it. I expect to drive about 12,000 kms. I'm only taking one watch. I could pick one of my G-Shocks, but much as I love them, I'd be bored over a month with only one of them.

    So, I'm between three watches that I think could make it without major damage and that I find interesting.

    Sinn U1
    Seiko Darth Tuna
    Seiko Marine Master SLA021

    Recommendations???

    Pick a G-Shock

    It would be difficult to be bored with a Rangeman, Mudman, Gulfman, MRG, Frogman, etc.

    Honestly if you have time to become “bored” with your watch then it must not be a fun trip. Pick a G-shock and be done with it
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    A four week camping trip and only one watch to abuse - I would go with the Seiko Marine Master.

    I love my mudman, but I would get tired of it over a full month. I think I'd get tired of most watches over a month (which is why I've got 30 or so, I guess), but I think the other ones would stand up longer for me.

    See, this is the one I'm most worried about, but only because it's the one I like so much and would start crying more with scratches.

    U1 and Tuna are pretty much indestructible, but I really like that MM300...
