Feature: Don’t Ruin Your Watch! Wear One Of These Instead

Whether you’re an adventurer through-and-through who enjoys the challenge of tricky environments, or you simply enjoy taking the dog for long walks at the weekends, we’ve rounded up some perfect luxury watches to accompany you outside. They may even get you out of some difficult situations…

Tissot T-Touch

The iconic Tissot T-Touch made history as the first touchscreen watch ever released. This titanium multi-function model is loaded with a compass, alarm, barometer, altimeter and more. What’s even more enticing is that the T-Touch was worn by none other than Angelina Jolie as on-screen action woman Lara Croft—now, that’s us sold!

Rolex Explorer

Most of us know the origin story behind the Rolex Explorer and the ascent of Mount Everest that inspired it. With the ability to take on the trickiest of terrain and treacherous weather conditions, the Explorer was rigorously tested over many years when Rolex equipped several people on mountaineering, caving and polar expeditions with this hardy timepiece—talk about commitment to the cause!

Breitling Emergency

The Breitling Emergency is considered a marvel of high-tech watches, being the first wristwatch to feature an integrated personal locator beacon (PLB). This bit of kit guides emergency services to the wearer if they activate the PLB when in a dangerous situation on land, in the air or at sea. Other noteworthy functions include a compass, chronograph, perpetual calendar and alarm.

Panerai Luminor Submersible

Panerai is another brand that has had its watches featured on the big screen, notably via Sylvester Stallone in the 1990s film Daylight. Wearing his Luminor, Stallone played a typical tough guy, a hero who needed his rugged watch to help him save the day. This Luminor Submersible offers the same amount of reliability as Stallone’s model in the film and then some, thanks to its impressive water-resistant capabilities.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer

The recent Aquaracer Professional 200 model is described as an “all-terrain luxury tool watch” that can be worn in the harshest conditions. Intended for thrill seekers and explorers, this is a dive watch at heart and TAG’s go-to for fans of the sport. The horizontally striped dial has become synonymous with the piece and the angular bezel nods to classic luxury steel sport watches such as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak—what’s not to love?
