For work, what's your EDC watch?
How has it served you?
Luminox 7051, great watch slightly smaller size and totally readable at night without pushing a button or tilting. Only draw back is the date indicator is reall small.
LEO. This G Shock. Has held up nicely.
G-Shock Gulfman at the moment We'll see how it holds up when I go out on road in December
When I was in the military, I wore a Luminox 3900. Darn tough watch.
When I was doing security work I wore an SS Traser, not too sure on the model#
Still wearing it now (it will have been EDCed 9 years towards the end of this month)
I've noticed that many of the LEOs and military guys that I work with wear G-Shocks of sorts. Sorry I can't help you much more than that. But it seems that the majority of them wear those, unless they need to have a dressy watch for the office.
While I am no longer an officer the day I graduated academy in Oct. 2008 I bought a Timex ironman. Still have it today, I wear it everyday and never take it off. It has been in 6-8 hour long stand offs in the pouring rain, fights,etc and I have literally never done anything but wear it. I haven't even had to change the battery at this point. I have a review of it on here if you want to see pictures.
Luminox 3050 Black Out, Maratac strap.
Timex Ironman before that. Both excellent pieces of equipment, I just really like the tritium.
Luminox 3103. It is the steel/carbon fiber version of the original Luminox Navy SEALS. The toughest watch I've owned, by far. I've worn it daily for about 13 years and it barely has a scratch on it.
Pls give us the link of the review! Seems like luminox/timex/gshock are the go-to watches for rugged use
Police. I've gotten fed up with having expensive watches (and G-Shocks) ripped off my wrist and require straps replaced, watch faces replaced etc so I tried going watch free for a while (have the time on our airwaves terminal) but it didn't feel right. Now I use dead cheap £10 sports watches from breo like the ion, which is pretty much an elastic band that tells the time and stretches. And if it does break, cheap to replace.
Same boat as pmew... Wore a G-Shock or most recently a Suunto Vector, knocked the bezel off fighting with a patient, bough a cheap Timex for like $22....But honestly it just hangs on my bag more and more.
Right or wrong my pulse checks have evolved into too fast, too slow, or not there....
Sent from this... Using that...
There are lots of good contributions in the whole thread. My second watch, Timex Expedition Military Field watch, came because of this thread.
Paramedic using a Suunto Core Military.
Great watch. Had one in the Army and they are awesome.

Amazing amazing. I currently wear this timex
Timex are probably one of the most underrated watches out there. Goes to show you don't have to spend hundreds for a fine watch.
When I was in the military, myself and pretty much all my colleagues wore G-Shocks. Tough, reasonably cheap and accurate.
Now I'm an Intensive Care Paramedic....Suunto Ambit or one of my G-Shocks.
I wear a Iron man also inside the jail. I had it for about 4 years now and have yet to replace the battery. Although, now I have to replace the watch strap soon. Other officers wear a mix between g shocks, ironman, and really cheap watches from walmart. Why wear something expensive that might break in a cell extraction.
