Recommendations for an "Adventure Watch"

I want to add an "Adventure Watch" to my collection. These are watches designed to take a beating in the crazy elements. The reason why I am looking for one is that I am turning close to 40 and on my 40th I want to do something I've always dreamed of doing, crossing the Gobi desert. Here are the watches I've compiled so far, would love more ideas

My favourite watch will forever be the original explorer two. Maybe one day....

But I also like the Breitling Emergency. Wish I had one of these too, but they get good write ups. Ben Fogle has one

Lorier Falcon and/or Hydra.

The money saved, put it towards a baller satellite phone...馃憖馃馃徎馃槀.

I may be biased but the Explorer 2 with the GMT and date is slightly more adventure orientated IMO. Would possibly be nice to know how many days you've been lost and if it's day or night above ground....

Rangers a good shout but if you want an explorer then the BB Pro is a better option as you can actually buy one and not go on a wait list

Feel like if I got and explorer or and explorer 2 I鈥檇 never wear it as a field watch or a travel watch because I鈥檇 be 2 scared to scratch it or ruin it

Let's get this straight, you want a luxury watch to wear while you are doing something adventurous. May I respectfully suggest you get something a lot cheaper that you can wreck. I would suggest a Dryden Heartlander, or a San Martin SN0131

A much more affordable alternative, and a type that鈥檚 been on many more adventures

220.10.41.21.02.001 put on a Nato.

Metas Certified, Awesome Color Combination, can be had quite cheap, definately is durable, and does not wear large!

Also, if you are not shy of wearing something larger, a Planet Ocean. ;)
