Looking beyond ruggedness, Watchfinder & Co. recently looked for timepieces that could help you survive an apocalypse. Narrowing down a set of watches that will last till the end of times. Regardless of what causes the apocalypse, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Survivor (26165IO.OO.A002CA.01), Graham Chronofighter Overlord Mark III (20VAS) and U-Boat U42 (6472) are all excellent options for survival.
Aside from keeping time, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Survivor’s solid black titanium case and grooved ceramic bezel with distinct pushpiece guards that make it a perfect makeshift weapon. The rifle muzzle crown, crosshair dial and handguard hands also helps the wristwear with its intimidation factor. With time of the essence in an apocalypse situation, the Graham Chronofighter Overlord Mark III will be a prime choice with its thick case that holds a proud dial and trigger style chronograph to ensure accurate timekeeping to avoid dire moments. Finally, the 47mm U-Boat U42 is crafted of lightweight hardened titanium and features a foldable crown to ensure the weak point of the watch is protected to ensure reliability.
