    I have a couple of high end watches that are great for travel, but I don't like wearing such expensive watches to third world countries. I was wondering if you guys could recommend some great travel watches at lower prices. Thanks!

    under 5000 dollars is lower prices? if you're in a third world country, i would generally advise a brand that isn't instantly recognizable or on the cheaper ends like seiko. at a $5000 budget, i instantly think to omega's as my go to watches, but i highly advise against wearing such a watch in a third-world country (in fact one of my good friends was shot when he refused to give up his rolex).

    Well, with his username, I'm kinda leaning towards troll...

    Try a timex weekender. For 5K, you can buy one for every day.

    What you want is a Grand Seiko GMT. Great travel watch because of the GMT function, but it's not instantly recognizable as a pricey watch. Grand Seikos, however, are some of the finest watches out there, built to exacting specifications, with movements more accurate than COSC chronometer-grade and amazing specs (72 hr power reserve, a full day longer than most automatic watches).

    Get set - Looks like you got better responses on flyertalk.

    good luck and I second a $100 or less type watch.
