    1950's Gruen if I wore a watch (everyday) and a 1945 Lord Elgin for dress. Both are swiss movement, 21 jewels (LE)/ 17 jewels (Gru), but they are wind up, not autos.

    Casio Wave Ceptor is an analog atomic watch which is what I usually wear for everday. They are faily inexpensive. If I remember right I got mine on e-bay for about fifly bucks.

    Seiko Diver's watch that my wife bought me in '85 when the Corps was callin' back to me and I re-upped for a couple of years reserve duty.

    Amazing watch, still worn daily... and I have only replaced batteries in the dang thing THREE times in 20 years!

    I have two. A Rolex for my dress up days, and a knock around one. I wouldn't wear anything too expensive, or things that advertise firearms. Because I want to blend in. Not be seen.

    Gotta go with the Timex Reef Gear, analog and digital and inexpensive but (dare I say it) keeps on ticking! And accurate, too!

    I have two Seiko Kinetics. One is silver and the other gold (color!). I alternate them day to day. They keep great time and look good.

    My watch is NO watch, haven't worn a watch in 7 yrs since retiring. Don't care what time it is, I get there when I get there. I think that's called Indian time.

    Luminox is a great choice

    I am on my second Luminox. After 10 years of constant hard use I would not wear anything else. Keeps better time than my Brietling and you can always read it and even set the bezel in total darkness.

    Dang!! I never noticed this post AFS!! Sorry.

    I haven't taken it diving (other than snorkling) but for water skiing and the pool, it's just fine. Never given me an ounce of grief since I bought it. Absolutely the most accurate watch I've ever owned, including the Submariner that was shot off my arm in Vietnam.

    I've only changed the band to a metal clasp type.
