    My JLC Memovox E855... it's been with me for pretty much all of the important moments over the last four years. Plus, in another country, in another timezone, I find the alarm complication extremely handy.

    The 58 is amazing. Personally, I have opted for the 79220B, but I am sure this will change now that the 58 is in my possession.:)

    This usually. Subtle enough to pass most by in most scenarios.

    Also take this along for the other scenarios or if I need to hammer nail heads in on floorboards.

    Vacation abroad is the ultimate test for an everyday watch... in my books, it has to be luminous (to check out the time in the middle of the night in the hotel room with possibly no alarm clock in sight), waterproof (for the dip in the pool), not pricey (in case you forget to take it off and end up at the hotel spa or something and flood it, even if waterproof... very hot water can be nasty), somewhat of a beater anyway because with all the luggage carrying it will be dinged anyway, and nice enough to enjoy it while not being too nice to not attract too much attention as you're visiting all kinds of tourist traps (note that european tourist traps aren't any worse than other places... ) and have no safe available sometimes... let alone the risk to purely and simply lose the watch in a place you might not have the opportunity to go back to in order to retrieve it.

    My answer to this is my trustworthy Orient Mako... Pretty much every time!

    I have watches that are worth more than 100 times my Mako, but I always come back to it for leisure travelling activities :) (business is different :D )

    It really depends on which country you plan to visit....
    But if you really want to feel safe then wear an Apple Watch!

    Tissot PRS200, my go-to watch for everything I don't want to put my mechanicals through. It's reliable, indestructible, waterproof and doesn't attract much attention.
