I am glad you posted that. I have tried to explain some of this on other products for a long time but it never got much traction.
The reviewer did a fine job and promises more to come.
The misconceptions of military gear reach far beyond watches.
Who wants to summarize this long video for us?
That was very interesting and informative. Thanks for posting that.
He wanted an 'authentic' military issue watch.
He choose Traser over Marathon, because while he said Marathon manufactures the only military issue watch he also claims they don't adhere to Military Specifications. The issue is that Marathon put their name on on the dial (not allowed as per Military requirements). So he picked the non-issued Traser watch -- even thought he said the tritium tubes are in the wrong place on that too which is against Specs.
In other words, the watch he wants doesn't exist -- apparently.
Would have been a better vid if accopanied by a PDF / EXCEL doc that listed all the watches he showed on the vid and their specification. A few looked nice.
I am now considering a analog g shock after viewing this vid.
IIRC, the Navy issues G-Shocks to the SEALs.
My hard use watch is a GD 100. Great watch!

I'll just put this right here:
I can highly recommend the GW-A1000D:
Where did you acquire this most excellent G-shock?!
The above is the 1000D - black IP bracelet. The regular 1000 has a resin strap and slightly different detailing but the functions are the same.
I really like the G-Shock analogs, but they are just too big for my wrist... I wore a Timex Ironman the whole time I was in the military.
And now this is my military style watch.
What these are all wrong! Military watch is where you stand on the deck of a US vessel and stare for hours on end into the abyss (The grey line where the lighter gray sky meets the darker gray sea) Anyone in the Navy should understand
This is 100% right, lol! (Dreading going back to a sub in a year, although maybe I'll only have to stand belowdecks...)
For what its worth, I know some who don't wear a watch, and many more who just wear whatever they can get at Wal-Mart for under $20. I wear a Casio Edifice.
I was Navy also... I was an electrician and spent all my watches in main control in the engine room. Never had to wear a dress uniform when standing watch!
