A watch used to be associated with a fragile, undurable accessory that requires special care and attention. This was due to the fact that in the past watches were made of poor materials and delicate crystals that could easily get damaged. Over time, however, more durable watches were created as they were designed to operate in less safe conditions, i.e. they were used by people who did extreme sports and took part in survival adventures. It goes without saying that in such conditions durability is the most important feature of equipment. Several manufacturers in particular have achieved success by creating very durable watches that reached a legendary status. What are they?

Iconic watches that withstand everything

Everyone wants to possess a rugged and tough watch. But it doesn't necessarily mean that the watch has to withstand the detonation of a nuclear weapon or the Martian invasion. Most people are interested in elegant watches that can be worn for work or a business meeting. But what watches are great for outdoor activities and survival adventures?

Then, of course, we need to buy a watch that will withstand rain, freezing temperatures, crash, or fall from a great height. Also, it would be great if a watch could help us tie our shoes, reinforce a backpack damaged by a grizzly bear, or accompany us when scuba diving.
