Of all the amazing gorgeous watches out there, price no option.....

GWG1000 Mudman. It would last longer than me on that island.

The Breitling Emergency. Outside of that, a watch with a curved sapphire crystal that I could extract and use as a reflector.

I would walk to the local AD and pick up the Steel Sub.

Give me my spb143. I like isolation and a trusty companion that can handle anything

Shouldn't the Breitling Emergency be the only watch one would want in this situation?
Have you seen the state of the world lately? I think it's the last watch you'd want.... God forbid someone rescued you and dragged you back to 'civilization'.

good plan, the only way they would have one is in a deserted island fantasy dream like this, so you may have a chance.

The more likely scenario is you'd have to write your name in the sand to get on their waiting list and you'd probably be rescued before your name was called.

Why, exactly, would you need a watch while stranded on a deserted island? To make sure you don't miss reruns of "Gilligan's Island" on the local palm tree network?
Well obviously one wouldn't require a time piece if stranded on an island! :rolleyes:

Why would you need a watch at all when you have a phone that tells the time?

Some watches (like the ProTrek posted earlier) have features like a barometer and compass...potentially handy features for being stuck on an island, for navigation or weather alerts.
