So what watches do you people wear on the water?

I used to wear a G-Shock but it was just too big. Had a hard time putting on jackets, cause it kept getting stuck in the sleeve. Also the lighting on my particular model was awful, couldn't even read the time at night. It was just overly complicated, sold it with a massive hit and bought a new Timex.


Here's my work/fish/camping watch.

Frankly most of the men's watches on the market today are too large for me David. I have the same complaints, trouble getting my arm into sleeve holes and difficulty lifting the cuff over the watch to be able too see the time. I have an old quartz Tag Heuer that is 10mm thick X 38.5 mm diameter it is waterproof and small and gets the most use.

This is my everyday, on the water, on the bike, go to the gym, "field watch".

I don't know how true it is, but their marketing department claims it had its origin as a UK military watch.

The fit of the band to the body of the watch is extremely tight, so I feel like there is plenty of mechanical retention holding the band in place and not just that flimsy pin. I've had those break on me in the field before.

It has a sapphire crystal and it hasn't scratched yet in one year of hard use.

I have a feeling the quartz movement isn't anything special, but it has proven to be accurate and rugged.

My one complaint is the date number is very small and hard to read.

It glows in the dark exceptionally well and is very easy to read when it is light or dark out.

In general, I'm very happy with this watch.
