Expedition watches are basically timepieces made for the outdoorsy bloke. They’re hardier that the average ticker and can be dunked in metres of salty or fresh water. Some come with handy compasses in case you get lost on the trail, others have world clocks for those trekkers suffering from a bout of wanderlust.  

They can, however, be a little hard on your coin receptacle, the pricier watches can be up to £12,000. Yes, the Rolex Deep Sea Dweller sells for close to that. Madness. But it can be taken to depths of 3,900 metres – so we get it.
