    Casio G-Shock GW6900BC-1



    I love mine. The negative display makes it unique. Good luck.

    At $130 with atomic timekeeping, that model looks like a steal, guess I'll have to pick one up.

    My Mudman has held up to some serious abuse.

    Thanks for all the recommendations, guys. Does anyone have any experience with the original Eco Drive I posted/any Eco Drives? If it's tough enough to handle hard core abuse I'll probably be going with that one.

    Indeed. I have a Seiko 200 meter dive watch I bought 30 years ago, as a graduation present to myself from grunt school. I've replaced the band twice, the battery maybe 6 or 7 times, and it still keeps great time. Lots of fun stuff that watch survived.

    I have a Sunnto Military Core and Casio Solar Atomic G-Shock as well, plus a Citizen Eco Drive chronograph, just a fancier version of the Military.

    Honestly, they are all good. But if I know I am going to get the watch beat to crap that day, I wear the Casio. It survived 3 weeks underwater, in a store destroyed by hurricane Katrina. If it survived that, I doubt I'll kill it with anything less than a 30-06.

    Does Suunto have any analog military watches?

    Is there an advantage of digital vs analog? I would think that analog watches would have fewer failures due to fewer computer parts.

    I paid about $30 for my G-Shock on Amazon, that's a pretty good deal. Sure there are other better (and more expensive) watches out there, but for a robust everyday watch that has a countdown and stopwatch feature it's a decent price.
    If not me, then who?

    There's a Maratac Pilot Automatic for one hundred and ninety five dollars.

    Hope you find what you're looking for and Enjoy!
