G Shock. The only watch I would ever wear working for any emergency service.

I have the mudman its pretty cheap at $60. There are some really cool tactical ones for around $100-$150.

A cheap Timex from Target. Lasts two or three years maybe more and if I smash it on the gurney restraining my favorite 5150, no big deal!

:rofl::rofl::rofl: Sir please explain to my why on earth would you wear 3500.00 plus watches to work in Emergency Services?

My nice watches are worn in my off time. For work I alternate between my Lum-Tec, Luminox Colormark, and a G-Shock.

I have also been trying to get my hands on a Maratac Pilot for some time but there are rare to find for sale, and most that are people want insane markups for.

With my eyes I need an analog watch with a big dial, not C-lo or puff daddy big, but something good at a distance. I like the Timex E. And it looks cool. :)

Usually a Times Ironman or Expedition. They're good to 100M depth (or so they say) and they take a beating. They're also cheap enough that if/when it gets too scratched or smashed, I can just replace it. I've had watches that cost anywhere between $15 and $50. The all worked for as long as I've needed them to.

Canman, I can't wear cheap watches, after wearing expensive watches every day for 4 years the light weight cheap watches annoy my wrist and i cant focus.They have a great warranty on them so I'm not too worried. If you can suggest a cheap watch with some weight in the $150-$300 range I'd get it in a heartbeat.

I have the same problem; however, Mine is related to tolerating the quality of the metals. After loosing my beloved stainless Rolex GMT master 2, I had a problem finding a watch that felt like it was there. I found the Citizen eco-drive all stainless steel for around $350-ish at a watch / jewelry store, it has shown itself to have a decent weight and quality. That In addition to being solar powered, so no batteries to change.
Over the years I've bought three more of varying design, but all eco-drives from Citizen.
One day, I have faith, I will replace my lost rolly - probably after all the kids grow up and move out... I really do miss it.

Those are way too nice to be worn at work! I've got the Tag F1 as well, I love that thing. It doesn't get worn unless I'm headed out for a special occasion. Usually I wear a pretty standard Omega but it's starting to not keep time very well, might be ready for a new one soon.

Fossils have some weight to them and look decent. There are some cool Nixons out there as well.

I do agree it takes some time to get used to a light watch if you're used to wearing that Tag around everywhere. I'd love to see those Breitlings if you have a picture of em!
