I was recently in a discussion with another member regarding personal preferences for guns, knives, and flashlights, and I happen to mention one of my other favorites is watches. The suggestion was made to maybe start a thread on favorite watches, just to see what other CPF members might prefer, as we were both in agreement that most folks are just as particular about their watches as they are about their guns, lights, and knives. So, here it is. Show us your best, whether it's your everyday beater watch or your finest dress timepiece, or even both!
I don't have a picture of mine, but I'll describe it for you and post a link. My favorite watch is my Marathon Navigator with date. It's an analog watch and it's not as elegant as maybe a Sieko Diver, or a Tissot or even a Rolex, but it is nearly indestructable, and keeps better time than my Sieko dress watch my wife and kids gave me for Christmas (that still makes an appearence on occasion to keep the natives from getting restless; can't be too careless, you know). I've worn my Navigator for around 6 years now, the crystal is cracked, and the outer bezel is missing a number or two, but I changed the battery in it about three months ago, and it's still within 15 seconds of when I set it. This is the third battery in 6 years, and I don't ever remember it being more that 45 to 60 seconds off. Around two hundred dollars, and for my money, for an all purpose watch, it can't be beat. See it at this link:
Marathon also makes high end stainless steel watches for divers and SAR types, that also cost much more. I'm sure they are fine timepieces, based on my experience with the Navigator, but this is my favorite, hands down. I have other watches, some nice and some not so nice but functional, but this one is my all around favorite. So, what's yours?
