    If you could only take one watch with you in a "bug out" situation which one would it be and why? For me, despite my growing automatic Seiko collection which I love and the few G shocks I also like, I think I would take my black dial Citizen Promaster Dive watch on an orange nato strap. It's extremely accurate, it's waterproof, will never need a battery change, and it's analog so I can use it to find a north setting if I needed to. It isn't my most expensive watch or "nicest" watch, but its very well made and just extremely dependable. The orange nato is just to make it more visible if I ever put it down anywhere or god forbid I dropped it in the water and had to go after it. Easier to see.

    Any Eco-Drive is a great watch for worry free use. Add a nylon band and you can pretty much not worry. I love my G-Shocks but I prefer the lume on the Citizen divers.

    If TSHTF, my "bug out" watch would have to be the one I'm wearing at the time. If I had a choice, it would be my GW5000-1JF on combi bracelet.

    I prefer items that do not need refilling or batteries. So my watch is an automatic winding mechanical watch. One of my stand by watches is my Seiko SRP dive monster. It is accurate, tough, reliable and easy to read. The lime on the dial and hands is excellent. It cost me less than any of my favorite bushcraft knives (about $180) and performs as well as any of my Swiss watches
    My second fav is an Aragon dive steer with Seiko guts

    Casio F105W-1A with nylon straps. It's pretty similar to the F91W-1 but with a better back light. Nylon for comfort.

    It would probably be one of my Baby-G Frogmans.

    I think a wind up pocket watch would be my choice. Still looking for the perfect one

    Casio G-Shock Mudman G-9000.

    Solar, accurate, radio controlled, extremely durable, comfortable, illuminated. In my mind there are few other options that will beat it (other than other G-shocks).

    G- Rangeman. I have a hard time taking it off and my several other G's aren't getting much wear time since I got it.
