    ^^ I want it to look classy but also be able to preform.....It must be waterproof...Leather Band preferred but something like a luminox 3080s band would be fine. Watch must be Thin/Light....Recommend to me away:D

    Also first post in a long time. Ive been real busy :agree:

    well how waterproof are you talking? watches have different ratings. i've got a hamilton that is rated down to 330 feet and a breitling that is rated down to 1000 feet. You can even find watches rated down to 10,000 feet. also if you are going to be spending a lot of time in the water you should probably stay away from a leather strap. leather and heavy exposure to water don't really mix.

    I like these but my price range is 100-250 I would like to keep under 200 if possible.

    @ artax Not a fan of these. They are a little to dressy for me. I mean more of a Casual/Tactical looking Classy watch. Along the line of the Luminox's I know its vague but I dont know alot about watches so I appreciate everything you guys recommend :D

    How about the Seiko SNZG11K1. It comes on a 2 piece nylon, but for the price (around $100) you can pickup a couple of extra straps. Here's a pic of mine on a strap made by me

    I'm not so much interested in the leather band as I prefer a bracelet or nylon zulu...... however my Luminox has become somewhat cumbersome with my winter clothing. Any recommendations for something slimmer than that? Preferrably a "pilot" style with lume on the hands (lots of dark places in my line(s) of work!). Dosent need to be anything fancy, utilitarian is A-OK.
