    Well, G shock isn't a brand. Casio is. I chose G shock meaning "casio"

    Also voted "other" for Citizen.

    My favourite are Q&Q (I've read on their site that the brand merged with Citizen) and Lorus (which is owned by Seiko).

    Jaeger Le Coultre Tourbillon is hands down one of the most amazing watches in the world. Thomas Prescher makes some amazing watches as well, even featuring a double and even triple-axis tourbilllon. If you like Jaeger, I think you'd like Thomas Prescher as well! Not really obtainable for me, but I would give my right hand for one. :idiot2: But I don't know your situation.

    Thought I had replied here yesterday when I voted, but apparently not...

    The watch on my wrist right now is a Citizen, which I must say I am completely happy with, and would definitely buy again/another in the future.

    Second place goes to the Casio G Shocks (as said above, Casio is the brand, G Shocks are just a series Casio make), while I don't actually own one at the moment, they are pretty much the only brand doing what they do with that line, and I will be going straight out to buy a GW-M5600 if my current 'tough/outdoors' watch ever dies (a Timex Humvee, of which Timex make no current equivalent and doesn't have the newer features of the current G's). Personally not a huge fan of most of the other models, as they are far too big for my wrist, but I am a fan of the idea and at least the smaller models.

    In the more affordable (for me) brands, Seiko and Victorinox. Swiss brands are IWC, Omega, and Brietling.

    From the list I said G Shock and Other for Pathfinders which are Casios as well. There are so many great watches and brands it would be hard to choose; different watches are suited for different situations. But the Casios are hard to beat for EDC!

    The watch you refer to is an early 1990's Breitling Aerospace #80360 with a titanium case. :)

    I tagged G Shock...I have about 9 or 10 of 'em...my 'other' vote is for Omega. My Omega Aquaterra and my MRG-110T G Shock are probably my two favourite watches for most days (suited & booted). For outdoorsy rugged stuff I'll wear a G-Shock mudman or riseman.
