A good watch

Recommended Posts

Also, this is my watch. Not actual picture because my camera is broke, but looks just like it.

I particularly like the face on that watch. Very sexy.

The features I like on a watch for work are digital, subdued backlight, plastic (for easy cleaning and fast drying after hand washes).

I used to wear Timex- takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Not "cheap" but they also won't break the budget.

I now wear a Relic- a bit more expensive, but I can also wear it off duty. I do have a nice "dress watch" but rarely wear it.

My needs-

BRIGHT Backlite for nightime use

Military time option

Large face (digital or analog)

Durable face

Metal band

Water resistant(don't need it to be dive certified in an urban setting) so it can be thoroughly deconned if needed.

Unless there is gross contamination that happens to extend beyond my gloves, I also don't take it off every time I wash my hands so it needs to be sturdy.

Style is a personal preference

I also replace my watches every couple years or so- when the crystal gets too scratched up to read.

I like my watch mostly because of the wrist band I made for it out of the paracord. Not that I would ever need it, but it could be used in a pinch for rescue/survival. Just undo the knots. Basically, I made it when I was doing SAR and forestry firefighting. The watch itself is pretty cool too :)

I use an Timex Ironman triathalon watch. It has a plastic band that sterilizes easy, has an analog face with a full digital background with 24hr time/date (which can be turned off and can look pretty snazzy) Its served me well so far
