Putting down miles in the mountains is our idea of heaven, but quality gear is a must for going the distance in comfort. To put together the ultimate long-day hiking kit we turned to the award-winning adventurer, photographer, documentarian and Glashütte Original ambassador Ryan Pyle. Ryan has explored almost every exotic corner of the globe, so when it comes to quality gear he knows his stuff. We recently caught up with Ryan on a hike in the Swiss Alps and used the opportunity to task him with helping us put together a tried-and-true high-mileage hiking kit.

It is no wonder this striking timepiece is Ryan Pyle's choice of adventure partner. The watch is as durable as it is nice to look at and can handle whatever situations he finds himself in. It's mechanical, powered by the wrist's natural movements, so it's ideal for multi-day hikes too. With a 100-hour power reserve, unidirectional rotating bezel and 30 bar pressure rating the SeaQ Panorama Date is chock-full of expedition-grade features. Available on a steel bracelet, rubber strap or synthetic nylon strap, it's ready for every situation.
