    What watch to wear on a hot-air balloon ride?

    Can anyone suggest an ideal watch to wear in a hot-air balloon ? I have a ride coming up in under 3 hours.

    I'd say G-Shock. If you're modeling for a men's magazine or something though, you'll probably want to wear the standard Rolex DJ or Omega AT.

    A pocket watch with a top hat if you are going on a nice gentle balloon ride. A Zenith if you are jumping out of it.

    If you're planning on crash landing, then G-Shock. For everything else, does it really matter? It's not like you're going into space like Felix Baumgartner. It's just a regular baloon flight where anything will work the same, be it quartz, automatic or a solar clock provided ther eis sun available. So wear whatever you want.
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.
