    To much for my pocket and I am hard on watches but one that has worked for me has been the Uzi Defender and its a EZ reader and there around $45 to $50 and has enough functions for a old guy like me. Gramps once told me a great watch is one that keeps the right time

    Ugh, I'm so sick of the word 'tactical'.

    Sorry, no experience with one here...

    By the way, has anyone seen my tactical golf ball? I could have swore it landed over here somewhere.

    sorry no, but they do have one of the most annoying websites I've seen in awhile (IMHO)

    A friend of mine has 1 and likes it. Personally I wear the UZI and it works great for a lot less.

    It wouldn't make my wish list. The website alone eliminates me as a buyer.

    I'm a G-Shock man. Mine went with me down to 216ft deep in the Gulf (not by choice). I was tethered to a 100 lbs amberjack via speargun. It still works like a charm and I have a sentimental attachment to it now.

    I am into watches, and theses look interesting but the website is a very annoying. They ae priced in the Luminox range. I would have to see one live to tell if the markings are any better than others. Anybody have an idea who makes the movement?

    And yes, the "tactical" thing is really getting out of hand. I love the tactical golfball line, next thing LA Police gear will sell them with a 5.11 logo.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Way too many markings on the bezel and face for my aging eyes.

    I'm don't like spending that much or more on something to just tell the time. Why? 1) my cell phone has the time on it, 2) my sweat is very corrosive and anything not plastic or titanium will get destroyed in short order, 3) I'm not calculating lunar orbit objectives so +/- a couple of minutes is OK, and lastly 4) I loose stuff - $30 Timex = annoyed, $500 Swissy thing = @#@#$%@%@ (and I have to explain to SWMBO where my $500 watch went )

    I love watches and have several. Could not get into the website to check out the watch. For a rugged watch that will last years, has an in-house automatic movement (no dead batteries to worry about), and has many cool designs-check out Seiko diving watches.

    I'm a watch guy too... all I have to say is that you can have a much better watch for the same or even less money.

    They pretty much all get the tritium markers from the same manufacturer (mb microtec).

    Luminox, UZI, Tracer, H3, and all the rest pretty much use the mb microtec GTLS (gaseous tritium light source) vials. So the main difference in any of them is who manufactures the watch case, what kind of guts they put in, (which is usually a standard quartz Romba Swiss movement).

    So mainly they are all about the same quality, it's just a matter of which one is more visually appealing to you, the consumer.

    Some companies like Luminox do have larger selections with varying grades (quality) of movements for various price points, as well as models with chronograph movements, plastic cases, all stainless steel cases, and different bands and bracelets.
