I am looking for a daily wearer that will withstand my new found love - my VW T5 camper!!! I need ideally, a watch that will withstand knocks and bangs and lots of beach time but still be of decent quality. I prefer 42mm - 45mm and looking to spend up to £400.

 

I have an Omega planet ocean, Longines legend diver, OrisBC1 Christopher Ward Sapphire and unfortunately and Apple Watch (which I love for work purposes!!) so would be interested in other or different brands.

 

Ideas welcome!!

G Shock, won’t be able to damage it and has a compass, Casio Edifice i would have said CW but you have one

This is the correct answer. Anything from the G Shock range will be more than adequate.

I’d say Gshock too as they’re robust, take a beating and just keep going and you get the waterproofing for the beach.
 

If you avoid the metal ones you’re less likely to damage any paintwork on the van If you end up working on it.

There’s one for sale in the sales section I think, which would leave you enough cash spare for a drive away awning or cadac cooker:thumbsup:
 

PS pics of van pls

Might be a bit small at 38mm but the old sarb 33 and 35 make fantastic beaters for less than 400 quid. Here i am sat in my shed.

The problem comes when you buy a watch to be a designated beater,  receive it then deem it too nice to be a beater! Then your looking for another one. But yeah as voiced by many above the g shocks are great for the task of a beater.

Looks nice that:thumbsup:, 2 or 4berth? I’ve a T4 which I had converted about 10yrs ago. Love it and can’t bring myself to get rid even though we have a caravan too now:whistle: Mine needs a bit of bodywork doing really. Gshock at the ready 

Talk the missus around re the cadac, brilliant to use

Seiko solar diver - there happens to be one on the sales corner that's well under your budget :whistle: - great build, solar movement (no battery changes) & a plastic/resin shroud to protect the case from knocks :)

Quite uncomfortable ,at least for me, watch. The crown guard at 4 o'clocks dig as hell the back of my wrist. Couldn't live with that.
