Which watch do you take with you on holiday?
Which watch do you take with you on holiday? This is useful to know because you do not want the watch band to become discolored, your watch to be damaged, or to get water in it when you go snorkeling or diving. If you go on holiday again during the summer holidays, it is still useful to know whether you are bringing the right watch. For example, if you go on vacation where you have to travel a lot, or you have many activities planned or just go on a relaxing holiday, you have to adjust your watch accordingly. If you are going for a relaxing holiday then you don't want to walk around with a big clumsy heavy watch and it has to be one that fits well with your outfit. If you go on a tour, choose a watch that is comfortable, robust and can take a beating. In addition, a handy feature is the GMT function (second time zone) if you travel a lot in different countries or time zones. If you have booked a sun holiday, choose a watch with a steel or rubber strap because leather straps discolour in the sun and leather straps also become of less quality when the strap comes into contact with the salt water of the sea.
The perfect watch for a sunny holiday
If you go on holiday to the sun, for example in Spain or Italy, it is best to wear a watch that can stand the sun well. If you go diving or snorkeling, the watch must be able to withstand salt water and be waterproof. An absolute must have is the Davosa Ternos Professional TT GMT 161.571.45 watch. Davosa watches use Swiss made movements that are among the best movements in the world in terms of quality and durability. Davosa makes exclusive use of quality movements from ETA, Valjoux and Sellita. As standard, all Davosa watches are equipped with the extremely strong sapphire glass. Sapphire glass is the best choice to protect your watch. It is pre-eminently the most clear and strongest type of glass used when making a watch. A screw down crown and case back of the watch are certainly recommended when used in the water. In addition, every Davosa watch offers comfort and style. The Davosa Ternos Professional TT GMT 161.571.45 watch has a diameter of 42 millimeters and is 15mm thick. The bracelet is made of stainless steel and of course the watch lights up in the dark. As an interesting extra, this watch has a ceramic bezel and helium escape valve for diving. The GMT function makes this watch an ideal watch for on vacation. The price of this watch is currently 1099.00 euros.

The watches described above are all of excellent quality. In terms of quality and durability, there is not much difference between these watches. However, one is more suitable for taking on a specific holiday than the other. This depends on the type of holiday and the activities you want to undertake. Before you go on vacation, think carefully about which watch you want to wear. After all, you don't want to expose your favorite watch to the risks of high temperatures, salt water, transpiration or even theft. Expensive watches are often an invitation to the thieves' guild to keep a closer eye on you and to take your watch away from you unexpectedly. Always place your watch in a locker when you are not wearing it so that you cannot lose it. Otherwise, the holiday will become much more expensive than you had previously planned.
