    Military/Tactical Watch Recommendations?

    My girlfriend wants to buy me a watch and I have no idea what kind of watch I want/need. The first option is the Citizen Eco Drive Military which is pretty cool since it doesn't need batteries. I also have been looking at the Casio G Shock Military. Yeah, the advertising is horrible but I've read pretty good reviews about it being tough as nails.

    Anyways, I'm looking for a watch under $200 (preferably under $150) that is ridiculously tough, will last forever, is great on batteries (Eco Drive is definitely a plus), looks like a military watch and has functions for stopwatch, calendar, etc. Are there any watches out there that fit these criteria?



    ps. If this is in the wrong category, can someone tell me where it needs to go?

    Thanks!

    I think you'll be looking at closer to $300, but the Casio pathfinder series of watches has some incredibly rugged, solar powered atomic timepieces.

    +1 for Casio G-shock or Pathfinders.

    I also like the Citizen eco drives but don't have experience with them. After looking into them more, it looks like a watch I'd interested in.

    Wenger makes a good Swiss Army watch as well.

    This is what I want! I've had a G-shock for 13 years. If it wasn't for kids and such I'd have one already

    G shocks are built like brick shit house takes a ton of abuse.

    Sunuto Vectors work well also.

    I have had great luck and love my Navy Seal Watch that isnt marked as such. Great Basic watch that is great for when you need to see it in the dark. I only got one cause I could get a clean one. I am not a SEAL And dont play one on TV.

    G-shock mudman, or go old school with a Seiko Dive watch.

    Suunto makes an excellent watch. Though I currently wear an Observer, a Vector served me well for years. The Military X-Lander is another option - probably the toughest built Suunto available.

    I found the battery life on the classic Suuntos to be excellent, and the battery is user changeable.
