    What are some watches for rough conditions?

    IF you had just one watch to travel the world, from diving, to desert heat/sand, to ice caps, to wearing at work doing construction,,, what watches would hold up best? I like steel bands and gmt.

    Probably a G-Shock. If I were going to choose a mechanical, it would definitely be a Bremont MB2 or Supermarine.

    Probably quartz over a mechanical for toughness. G-Shock is the real world answer for sure. Omega SMP 300 GMT is a good one for mechanical, a GMT diver from Grand Seiko if you'd like to go really upscale.
    Current: Seiko 5 SNGZ71, Seiko SKX007, G-Shock G9000-1V

    Grail: Omega SMP 300 or Planet Ocean Orange Bezel

    Admitted Seiko fan!
