How do you tell time?
« on: January 01, 2016, 06:02:53 PM »
G-shock tough solar. Great piece. Super well built and was on rollback at wal mart a few years ago for forty bucks!

My wife got me the MTM Patriot for a "retirement" gift after my last, last deployment. It's a great piece as well with a real chrono, I guess it was pretty expensive.

the origo I have had for 8 years now and have had to replace the band a couple of times and the battery as well.  there are 2 real reasons why I bought this watch from cabela's to begin with.  1. I can replace the battery by myself in my house and not have to take it to a repair place to have it done, and 2. I really liked the weight and solid construction of the watch.



and I have a couple of these marathon SAR DIVE watches.  they were given to me on deployments.  I would really like to get the stainless steel band for them, but they are a little expensive.

Had a Suunto Vector... LOVED that watch. But after a few years it finally gave up the ghost. Then I bought a G-Shock, so far it's doing good. Only minus I give it is the hands lose glow power pretty fast, if they had tritium on them like the Luminox watches do, I'd like it even more.

Update:

I replaced the G-Shock with a Suunto Core in all black. I didn't mind the G Shock, but I'm a big fan of Suunto. The Vector I wanted was more money, so I went Core after a couple Army buddies recommended it.



Nate those Marathon SARs are awesome, but stupid expensive.

HC, I also approve of that MTM!

Update:

Bought a G-Shock DW-9052 today after work. I still like my Suunto Vector, but had a problem with it, that mysteriously resolved itself a couple days ago, however, I felt like I needed a new everyday watch. Pics when I'm able to get stuff to cooperate.

Timex and Citizen for me. They break about once a year so I just buy another. Cheaper than a new crystal and battery.

Kids got me a smart watch to go with my Motorola phone. I'm not really a smart watch guy, but it works, waterproof, and can find my phone if I lose it.

Times and G-Shocks for me as well. I have a decent Seiko I wear for dress as well. Most times I don't wear a watch as I always have my phone and we must have 30 clocks in the house (stove, microwave, 2 others in the kitchen) cable boxes (4), other assorted clocks (5 I think?). Daylight savings is a total PITA every year! ha. But I do like it when I have it on. But its been so long I just have to get "used to" the feeling again.

I was hoping you weren't going to say you got rid of them.

Update:

Back to my Suunto Core. Removed the crappy stock elastomer band and replaced it with a 22mm zulu watchstrap that I've had sitting in an old footlocker.

Update:

The Suunto has been given a new task as my dive watch since it has a depthmeter built in, and the NATO strap makes it easier to secure over the wetsuit and gloves.  A recently (within the last couple months) purchased GShock DW-6900MS has taken over all duties as a daily wear watch.

I'm technologically disadvantaged. I can take a heuristic approach but I feel as if that wouldn't give the photographic evidence you require. Shorthand... actual camera broken, phone acting up.

That's the one, I have the 3230 module..apparently the newer version. Tells time and I don't have to be careful with it, which is a plus.
