The Explorers Watch (sorry Rolex)

It’s interesting that watches are one of the few product categories where there is a inverse relationship between features and price.  A 25,000 IWC tells time and looks good and this beauty (at about $300) tells time, sets itself automatically, never needs battery, provides compass/altimeter/barometer/temperature, etc etc.  If I were stuck on a desert island, this would be my watch.  You just know Shackleton & Fawcett would have worn one.  In fact, when I was going through Navy Flight School in Pensacola, they issued me a classic Casio G-Shock.  When you need to know EXACTLY what time it is in the cockpit, a big digital display is a must.  No one can read an analog Breitling or Rolex in heavy turbulence.
