What kind of watch would you want if you were dropped in the middle of a frigid wasteland? What kind of timepiece would you like strapped to your wrist if you parachuted into the middle of a desert? How about a deserted island? Chances are, you’d want a watch that can help you navigate your new surroundings. You’d want a watch packed with all sorts of instrumentation. You would want a watch that can handle the extreme temperatures and is also water-resistant. You would probably also want a watch that can handle knocking or some low to mid-level shock. In short, you’d want the kind of outdoor-specific, instrumentation-heavy sports watches produced by Casio. Anything else, it would see, would be too little too late. If Casio is the first brand to come to your mind when it comes to mission-critical heavy-duty outdoor timepieces, you’re in good company.
