Indestructible watch?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I need some recommendations for a replacement watch. I'd like to get this person (who may sometimes read the forum) a watch. He has broken a Seiko divers watch and a Timex bought to replace that. Doesn't have to be beautiful. Must be/have: Analog (Jon..) Metal case Metal bracelet High bezel to protect crystal Date, hopefully large or with magnifier Maybe other functions, not necessary Hopefully under $200. It may get lost or run over, I'm not spending a lot on this. Any ideas? Thanks.

Casio G-Shock? It meets most or all of your criteria. Jon.

Hahaha...funny, guess I missed that. Well, then my next choice is a Swatch. Jon.

Remind me, what does the "IS" in your moniker stand for... or maybe just the "I" Seriously, you have no real suggestions here?

Dude, I focus in haute-horology, I have no idea what a "˜good' $200 watch is...do you have a Tourneau Watch Gear store nearby? If not, they have a web site: http://www.watchgear.com/ They offer lower-priced selections that might meet your requirements. Jon.

Of course they cost about $600 each, more than what j wanted to spend. Jon.

I would have recommended the Seiko Orange Monster (readily available for under $200 on the net) but for the fact that your friend has already broken a Seiko diver.  This one may be a bit more durable than the one he broke and worth looking into.

G-Shocks aren't all digital. I have a titanium analog/digital Mr. G that feels as close to indestructible as any watch I've had. The Mr. G line will cost more than you're looking to spend ($300-400) and you'd probably have to find someone in Japan or HK to make the purchase. G-Shock styling is, of course, an acquired taste . . . This page has some photos of the same Mr. G that I own: http://pmwf.com/Watches/CasioTable.h...alog%20Digital

Aha. The Letter 2 my friend. I knew I was right. (Ok, I did not know, but still, I was proven correct.) Jon.
