I've got the quartz version of that bottom Marathon (the TSAR). I've had it for about a decade now and have been really happy with it. It's usually available for relatively affordably compared to the automatic GSAR. It's great on a NATO strap but really, the Marathon bracelets are some of the most comfortable I've ever worn.In that case, don't let me stand in the way of justifying a new watch purchase... Lord knows I'm doing the same with a Doxa Sub 300T. I do like that Luminox I have because it's sort of "tacticool", with the plastic/whatever black case and I have it on a olive green NATO strap...looks good outdoors, it's the one I'll be wearing tomorrow through Monday at a mountain vacation in North Carolina, at least while I'm doing outdoors stuff, Chimney Rock, etc.
Re an armed survivalist adventure watch, how about this from Marathon:

It's quartz, $200 MSRP, although only 34mm case. There are various other strap colors available, as well as ones with a date complication ($280 for those).
If I were actually looking for another 'tacticool' watch similar to my Luminox that I could beat up and not worry about the movement, this Marathon would probably be the one:

41mm, quartz, $1,000 MSRP. I'd put it on a NATO or similar strap.
