3 Tough Watches

1. Best for Secret Agents
Aptly named 20,000 Feet, this watch holds the world record for the deepest dive. It was also blown up with dynamite, shot three times with a Winchester shotgun, thrown from an airplane and hosed down by a high powered fire hose and still kept the time with barely a scratch. (What’s the big deal? We put ourselves through the same routine just to wake up in the morning.) $5,175.94 from CX Swiss Military Watch.
2. Best for Adrenaline Junkies
A brand already known for their uncompromising
toughness, G Shock went a step further with their recent Ultimate Tough GX56 collection. Spreading across a 55mm frame (double the size of a typical G Shock), the watch features advanced self-charging and solar power technology for unwavering reliability.
$206 from G Factory.
3. Best for Nightowls
The Swiss Military Honowa Navigator Pro is made from stainless steel PVD and scratch resistant sapphire crystal, featuring luminous index and hands—perfect for anyone crawling home from a club. Price upon application from Watches of Switzerland.
