Traveling can bring wondrous benefits to your life as it helps you mature in terms of psychological enlightenment, and the best place to achieve that is Asia. The massive continent is very famous for being a unique continent, having fascinating landscapes, and an astonishing experience by its cultures, populations, plants, animals, and economies.
Planning and preparing can be a challenging task as you have to formulate everything from your budget to your wardrobe. You shouldn’t pack less and then realize that you didn’t bring enough nor pack so much that there’s excess baggage.
If you’re traveling to Asia for the first time or your 100th time, you should always remember about a very reliable device that can aid you in keeping track of whenever and wherever you want to go. From catching your flight to claiming the reservation for a restaurant, a timepiece is essential for every traveler and this list will help you determine which one is for you.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Ultra-Light
Omega has a vast catalog of authentic watches that range from budget-friendly prices to more exquisite and luxurious designs, and the top pick for a traveler watch is the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Ultra-Light. This particular timepiece is ergonomic, lightweight, and sports-friendly as it was designed from using less material, hence, less weight.
The timepiece’s ergonomics are improved by having a crown that pops out when you push-out the crown and goes back into place when you push it back in. Omega is also presenting a brand new movement for this particular watch called the “manually wound Caliber 8928 Titanium.”
Nomos Glashütte Club Campus Neomatik
Ever since the 1990s, the manufacturer of the Saxonian timepiece has been silently capturing the market with its elegant and Bauhaus-like watches. However, Nomos has never offered a type of timepiece with a metal strap even before the introduction of stainless metal links, which are manufactured and polished by hand in Glashütte, as Nomos explained.
Seiko 5 Sports SRPD73K1
Based on Seiko’s distinguished lineup which was developed and launched back in 1963, the Seiko 5 collection has marked all checkboxes as an entry-level mechanical timepiece. The SRPD73K1 model from the company’s Seiko 5 collection is all that consumers are looking for in a timepiece that is driven by its value and allurement.
Rado Captain Cook Automatic
A few years ago, the famous Captain Cook had a diver’s watch named the Hyperchrome, and when Rado released an actual duplicate of Captain Cook’s watch, consumers were caught off guard by their announcement. Despite the Hyperchrome’s growth in popularity, Rado announced a follow-up to the Captain Cook lineup called ‘the Captain Cook Automatic.’
The ‘Captain Cook Automatic’ preserved its vintage design from its predecessor that feels like the ultimate modern diver’s watch at the same time. The casing has been upsized to 42mm and the bezel uses a ceramic insert, and Rado also added beautiful colorways to the ‘Captain Cook’ timepiece to add an elegant contrast to its bracelet.
Tudor Black Bay Bronze Manufacture Caliber
The Tudor Black Bay Bronze Manufacture Caliber has a combination of a bronze casing along with a slate dial, which makes it as handsome as it can be that is perfect to wear on a sunny day or at the beach. The Black Bay Bronze has a Manufacture Caliber movement which is a mechanical movement that is self-winding and a power reserve of a calculated 70 hours.
The Tudor Black Bay Bronze is encased with a 43mm bronze case that is PVD-treated, which also has a steel back case and an overall satin finish to gain a beautiful aesthetic. The winding crown is a screw-down which is decorated as a bronze Tudor rose.
Timex Navi Harbor
The Timex Navi Harbor gets instantly sold out because watch lovers are rampaging about the timepiece’s design that screams ‘summer.’ Navi Harbor has a quartz analog movement encased in stainless steel that features water resistance for up to 100 meters. This makes the timepiece a perfect everyday watch that is versatile and reliable.
Casio G-Shock Gravity Master
The G-Shock Gravity Master is a serious watch for travelers because all of the fragile hardware is encased in a mold that protects it from sudden and unexpected drops and impacts. Not to mention that this timepiece is water-resistant for up to 200 meters, which means that you can go scuba diving with this timepiece.
Casio’s G-Shock Gravity Master has a rare feature of synching automatically to a time zone when you reach a certain place with the use of radio waves and GPS, not to mention that it also has a calendar. However, some people may not find it appealing to have an analog-digital display, but the large body is necessary to have the tank-like protection.
Samsung Galaxy Watch
Every year, electronics has been advancing to the point that there is a technology for everything to ease the effort. In recent years, innovation has found its way to the world of watches, and the first one to adapt is Samsung with its first iteration of the Galaxy Watch lineup.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch has numerous features to offer such as a built-in navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a couple more features which also makes a smartwatch the best alternative for a fitness tracker. However, the disadvantages are having a 3-day battery life and water resistance for only up to 50m.
Asia is a very diverse continent that some parts of it are hot and humid most of the time, some have cold weather depending on the time of year, and the rest have a tropical climate. Choosing the best travel watch to bring with you on your journey would depend entirely on which part of Asia are you going.
There are many watch designs that have different kinds of straps such as leather, velcro, and traditional metal links. The different types of straps have advantages and disadvantages depending on the location and the decision on which watch to bring depends on how comfortable you want to be during your journey.
