    Heirloom watches are the best kind. Every time you check the time, it's a connection to the past.

    My father has a pocketwatch that his father hung on the instrument panel of whatever plane he was flying at the time, from biplane mail carriers in the 1920's, to DC-3's, DS-4's, DC-6's, DC-7's, to jet airliners up to his retirment in 1965. My father now hangs it on his instrument panel as well. It's survived three crashes, and still works.

    For 13+ years I have been waring a Casio diver watch (AMW320D-9EV.) Back then it was about $99. Originally I used it when I was racing catamarans in CA. The big face, and large band to fit over my wet suite, made it perfect.

    Many batters, and bands latter it is still going. Scratched, and very well worn I have just picked a new one up on eBay for 2/3 of what they go for new now.

    Great watch, I've had mine for about 3 years now with no complaints whatsoever.

    Love Luminox

    I have had a steel /carbon bezel Luminox for 7 years now and it's fantastic. Keeps time as well as my Brietling which cost a hell of a lot more and seems almost impervious to damage.

    Love the fact that you can read the damn thing in total darkness and never have to worry about charging up the luminous hands and bezel markers. Just a great watch. It might be almost too bright for tactical night ops. Would advise a watchband that has a velcro face cover.

    Anybody that can clue me in would be great, I would be interested in looking into that watch further.

    This from imdb.com:

    The wristwatch that Frank is wearing is an Italian made watch (Swiss movement) named "Panerai" and is a "Luminor-Daylight" model.

    I just had to toss this into the watch thread.

    A rather confident man, walks into a bar and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman. He gives her a quick glance, then casually looks at his watch for a moment.
    The woman notices this and asks, "Is your date running late?"
    "No", he replies, "I just bought this state-of-the-art watch and I was just testing it."
    The intrigued woman says, "A state-of-the-art watch? What's so special about it?"
    "It uses alpha waves to telepathically talk to me," he explains.
    "What's it telling you now?"
    "Well, it says you're not wearing any panties."
    The woman giggles and replies, "Well it must be broken then, because I am wearing panties!"
    And the man starts tapping on the watch face and says, "Damn thing must be an hour fast!"

    The Panerai brand of watches are VERY expensive. I was searching ebay to buy a Rolex Sea Dweller and scrolled through the more expensive brands. Panerai makes an awfully nice divers watch but very expensive also. The Rolex/Tudor that I was issued back in '68 is retired to the safe now. I wear the Sea Dweller daily.------

    I have been wearing my Rolex Submariner every day since I bought it in 1976. I had it cleaned about 3 years ago and bought a new band, that it. It's funny the band and cleaning cost almost twice as much as I paid for the watch in 76. You cant beat these watches, mine has been through pure H*ll with no problems.

    You want to see a bunch of Panerai worshiping SOB's, go to www.timezone.com.

    Those watches are huge, but really sharp.

    My EDC watch is a Wenger Swiss Army dive watch (200m, blue face). On suit days it's a Seiko Grand Sport (grey face). I cringe at the price of Omegas, as much as I'd like one ... I always think of the guns I could buy instead.

    Man, I don't need to get into watches. I spend enough on pistols, holsters,and other toys.
