    I highly recommend the Casio Protrek PRW 5100-1 Atomic/Solar Watch

    I like the analog/digital display, the fact that it's solar powered, has atomic timekeeping, plus altimeter, barometer, and compass. Over the years I have (& still have) used Omegas, Breitlings, & Tags but when I deploy to a disaster I take this one.

    I like inexpensive analog watches. My Bass Pro Shop special died on me and Amazon tried to charge $50 shipping on $2.50 in batteries, so I just got a new Casio with a "10-year" battery in today. I bought a Timex Expedition in Mosul ten years ago that was my go-to watch for over six years, and will probably replace the battery in it (again) for continued use when I get home.

    Citizen Eco drive Diver on a Sage NATO band. Purchased in 98 and functions flawlessly. I've wrestled with it, fought with it, dunked it, rolled on it and slid it across gravel. Beat up but works like a charm. It even still glows.

    Casio Forester. Good, basic, cheap (15 dollars) and waterproof enough for me.

    When I was in, it was generally a G-Shock mudman or similar.

    Just a basic G-Shock DW6900, for me. Haven't had a problem in 2+ years, here at home or in The Stan.

    I wear a Invicta Professional, everyday, seldom take it off except to shower. I'd like to get a Marathon GSAR but I haven't found one price right.

    That's very similar to my Casio Pathfinder PAW-1200. I complement you on your watch and your dinner. :)

    That looks pretty sweet I like that watch a lot, but I doubt most Military/LEO/1st responder types could afford that. Or if they could probably wouldn't want to wear it on the job. Check youtube for reviews, I'm sure you could find some.

    Timex Ironman. I have two different ones. One for work and one for the rest of the time. Just seems more sanitary to do that with the blood, germs, and other bodily fluids my watch gets exposed to at work. I've noticed a steady shift the last couple years from Timex Ironmans to G-Shocks though. When I get built like Taylor Drescher (Cross-fitter and Marine 2LT for those who don't know), then I might spring for the G-Shock she has because I really like it. Until then it might look a little comical on me because I have small wrists.

    Firefighter/Paramedic - Luminox, hands down. The hands are bright enough to take vital signs in low light, it's waterproof, the crystal is tough enough it hasn't scratched in 13 years, the stainless band has held up perfectly, and I just changed the battery for the first time.
