I'm in a bit of a quandary. I work in the food/beverage industry. It is a wet environment, surrounded by stainless steel vats / tubing, and harsh chemicals (I wear protection, of course, but accidents happen).
As such, I am looking for a watch that could stand up to daily wear in that environment (ie: can get very wet, maybe banged around a little bit etc and still run). Only issue: I prefer it to be Swiss or German, with a mechanical movement that includes a date.
I'm guessing it would be a diver's watch, and have heard that a Rolex could stand up to the punishment, but I'm not really a Rolex sort of person. More partial to Zenith and other brands.
My budget is around USD 3500 to 4000.
Can you guys make any recommendations ?
