    I am moving to Malawi in August to start a new teaching job and I am not planning to take any of my omega watches, at least until I get a feel for the place. I am considering either a swatch watch or basic casio g shock. Does anyone have any experience about the quality these two watch makes? Thanks in advance, all opinions are appreciated.

    Both are good. I have a G-Shock and love it. I would say though if you're an Omega lover and/or an analog watch lover Swatch would be the better choice.

    Or if you like mechanicals maybe consider something like a new Orient or Seiko 5. Not expensive at all.

    After reading a few advice tips on travelling in Africa then non shiney seems to be the way to go otherwise I would have gone for a seiko diver all day long.

    I have a couple gshocks. they're well made, if a little boring. very tough, utilitarian.

    This video will help you decide I have a G Shock had it for 3 1/2 years used abused and just carries on running.
