While it's of great importance to own a watch of considerable quality, actually managing to wear it on a daily basis without gradually destroying it is a near impossible feat.
Which explains why we're rather taken with the Ponto S. The first sports watch from acclaimed Swiss watchmakers Maurice Lacroix combines class with durability, meaning you can be proud of your wrist without worrying too much about its well-being.
It comes with different straps, allowing you to switch things up between day and night going from the striped nylon to the steel. The steel case is waterproof and each part is designed to stay resilient while you indulge in whatever extreme sport you're pretending to enjoy this week.
In fact, the watch is so durable that it's even being endorsed by free diver Sébastien Murat and he's definitely sportier than you.
The watch starts at £2950 and it can be bought at www.mauricelacroix.com or Harrods in London.
