    Something like either of these would work. Very unlikely anyone would remove your arm just above the wrist with a machete, if you wore one like either of these. :)

    IMG_1800.jpg Excellent travel watch. Tough, waterproof, not expensive, doesn't look like much. I also use Seiko SKX 007 and Tudor Black Bay

    These are usually my “go to” watches when travelling. So I rotate and use mine a lot, usually bring a few with me per trip.

    I usually go with the Blue Lagoon Samurai. The colours just make me think of sunshine and holiday

    The last time I traveled overseas (Amsterdam) I enjoyed these:

    For going out in the evening (concerts, etc):

    And for the rest of the time (the GMT bezel was very useful):

    Funny , I wore this on a business trip a few weeks ago, and when I saw a guy wearing a newer Polar watch, I had to start talking about watches and fitness with him.

    OP, New Westminster guy here. Be careful and don't take a Submariner (AKA the most recognizable watch the Planet).

    I carry a beater for the sketchy locals, other than that rock what you want. South America and Africa are a different kettle of fish.

    Funny, I read for the first time "a different kettle of fish" yesterday in a column by Rex Murphy (a journalist from Newfoundland).

    For a versatile Go-Anywhere-Do-Anything (GADA) watch, that's inexpensive and quite durable, I rather like my Alpinist.
