    Tore the crown clean off that baby while backpacking in high Sierras last weekend. Lot's to look at out there in the 'outdoor' watch category. Any suggestions?


    Here are my preferences:

    Analog face

    Under $100

    Water Resistant to at least 100m

    Good lume or backlight

    I'd love to hear your thoughts

    Did you like the Timex Expedition? If something works for you then run with that. The Field Chrono looks great, IMO.

    Good call I love Eco Drives, and I've already got the BM8180-03E.

    I love my Timex Expedition and if it broke, I would gladly buy it again.

    Don't know if it's a good price, but I just saw a Victorinox Officer for 109 USD on Massdrop.
    100 meter WR, sapphire crystal, Ronda 715 movement, 8.85mm thick.
    All of that beats my Timex Expedition Scout. It probably has way better lume also, but no indiglo backlight off corse.
    Seems like a good deal to me.

    Good find alcolainen, that price does in fact look pretty good. Same watch is $129 w/ prime at the Big A.
