    I am looking for a super durable yet reasonably priced watch. I seem to go through them as if I get paid for it. Any testimonials? JD, I know you love your gear. Gotta have a good watch. :cool:

    What is your budget?

    "Reasonably priced" varies from person to person. ;)

    I always had good luck with Seiko. Most that I owned lasted longer than I wanted and got passed along. :D

    Take a look and see if any of these (kinetic series) interests you.

    I've had a number of Seiko's over the years and they seem to be pretty much bulletproof. I bought a half a dozen Invicta watches some time back (when I had money) and I think they give great value for the money.

    Wearing a 40 yr old Seiko self winding at the moment. No electric to it. 6 months ago, bought one like it for about $60 for my son. Onesaleaday.com has them from time to time.

    I haven't worn a watch in many years brother, but what are you looking for it to do besides tell time? Waterproof/Water Resisant? Shooting Solution?

    Help me help you. :p

    I don't like watches that need batteries. Mechanicals are the way to go.

    Seiko has some bomb proof automatic professional diver's watches that fall under your price point, and I don't know of a better watch for the cost.

    Been wearing a Casio G-Shock going on 11 years. Been through almost everything. Not a single problem. Says it good down to 200m. However,not being a diver, if I find myself that deep,time will be the least of my problems. Where your at, its not an issue. Just DEROS with all your parts.

    I just got a 5 11, HRT Tactical series,Titainium watch that includes the Horus Vision software for shooting solutions. 249.00$ @ optics planet. I can not vouch for it yet (just got it ) , but I am looking forward to testing it out at the range in conjuntion w/ my Horus vison scope. I will report back on its effectiveness after I have some time @ the range w/ it.

    I wear a G-Shock wave septor watch. I am a diesel mechanic and beat the hell out of them. Last one lasted 6 years and the only reason I bought a new one was I tore the band off. They are about 99 dollars.

    I'm a Seiko guy, I've got a automatic diver I bought in 1976 and it is still going strong I am going to send it in for maintenance as It’s starting to lose a few minutes over a few days. I’m currently wearing the Seiko “Orange Monster” diver watch that Glass gave me two years ago for our anniversary. It is also automatic and like my original diver is almost bomb proof. Oh, and I am a diver and have had my original down to 235 feet and the orange monster to 120 with no problems at all.

    Another vote for G-shock. I have the mudman and it takes a beating. Still perfect working order and looks pretty good too,

    Just a consideration for those who like quartz watches. They are toast in the event of an EMP or large explosion. Good mechanicals shrug that stuff off.

    Just sayin'.
