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
