    Norwegian guy here, I used this on my last trip to the States and Caribbean. Regret that I sold it

    X33, 20190112_151930.jpg Mutiple time zones and timers and a super loud alarm to get through the jet lag fog.

    My problem is not water proof enough for me. So I generally also bring a dive watch.

    However I'm in the market for a Hamilton field mechanical, which I may use for travel.

    On a recent trip I brought my orient ray, which worked well all round, but did not have a big time change.

    I took my DSOTM on a recent trip home to the UK. Flys under the radar in terms of looking fancy, I have found it to be indestructible so far (several hard bashes against doors and walls and not the slightest mark) and the quick hour set function of the 9300 movement is handy time zone wise. So I think this will be my regular travel watch.

    My go-to watch when traveling is the Seamaster 2254.50. A tool watch that can be dressed up or down and isn't too flashy.

    Variety. 4 watches max.
    If I am have to be afraid to loose the watch and not be able to replace it (same for camera gear) it is not meant for me. You have to enjoy your stuff or it is dead weight.
    Of course everything within reason. :D

    If I'm expecting to get wet, this one. It can also serve to bribe border guards, call a raise, or make bail:

    Or this one, if I'm in some wet and lawless place and don't want my hand cut off:

    If water resistance isn't an issue, I like to watch these go nutty on airplanes:

    I think that in general, knowing "how" to travel abroad trumps your wrist choice no matter what. If you're at ease in unfamiliar surroundings and don't present yourself as a giant target - through your behavior and your attire - you're unlikely to draw any unwanted attention. That said, I don't bring my best stuff with me on the road and opt for two sub-$2K watches that check all the boxes for me:

    I wear a 8500 AT because of that jumping hour hand. Super convenient for travel.
