Everybody needs a beater watch – that watch that you strap on without thinking about it when you know that whatever’s on your wrist is invariably gonna get knocked around (and you don’t want this to happen to the ol’ Speedmaster, now, do you?).
We’re big fans of the Timex Expedition Scout around here for its practicality, feature set, and good looks, and right now you can save an extra 35% off list price on one on Amazon. A no-nonsense quartz movement, 24-hour dial, quickset date and nylon strap make this an ideal field watch, and 50 meters of water resistance is more than enough for most non-swimming/diving tasks. What’s more, this version of the watch comes in a 36mm case, meaning that it fits comfortably under a cuff and isn’t the size of a dinner plate.
