    Default What kind a watch do you wear?

    I have been wearing a Timex Ironman for the past 3 years. I like the watch overall, but was curious on what kind of watches other people use. I was thinking about buying a Luminex, but didn't know if the price reflected the quality. Thanks for your input.

    Doesn't this belong in the off duty section?


    but any way I wear a Timex Acqua, i've had it for 5 years, and the only thing thats ever broke on it was the light (was fixed for free) and the band periodicly brakes (just because of my wear on them)(there fixed for free too)

    On duty: a simple Timex..it takes a licking and keeps on ticking!
    Off duty: a chronometer made for and sold by a local jewlery store.

    I have a Swiss Army Stainless Steel Officers watch w/blue dial as well as a stainless steel bracelet. I bought this nearly two years ago in England while on exchange over there and it is the best *%^@ watch I have ever had! It has seen some serious abuse!

    A Nextel...and a pager

    My wrists are just a tad to big for a standard band to fit comfortably, and I've never found one in a store that both fit and I liked the looks of.

    I keep a "clip on" sports watch on the jump kit on the truck I drive most often to use for vitals, and I keep a cheap stopwatch on the dash of the truck for "pump ops" stuff (like timing how long it takes to pump off the tank...)

    I had a french made watch, but it kept running backwards!

    Timex indeglo- the face light is enough to get me back into the dorm at night when the lights are out.

    I think you have some sticky keys on your keyboard, kvfcjr! That typing looked alot like what mine did when the kids spilled a soda on it...
    to the ?, no not this one, this one is the "expediton", but I know the one you are talking about. Had one like that before this a few watches ago.

    I wear a Seiko Kenetic Auto Relay. No Batteries, no winding, perfect time. Titanium housing, 100M waterproof. Greatest watch I ever had.

    I wear a TImex Ironman Indiglow that I know is over 10 years old. You wanna talk about a watch that has seen some abuse!! You can't even read the Start/Stop & Lap/Reset buttons anymore.

    I always had problems breaking the bands (the plastic buckle type) till I founs a nylon strap band and that thing has held up like you wouldn't belive.


    One of these day's I'm gonna break down and get me a new watch . . . . maybe.

    Wise man say; "Man with one watch always knows what time it is. Man with two watches is never sure."


    For me, a basic timex indiglo with date and alarm. I go through about one a year between firefighting and off-duty work.

    Has anyone looked into metal vs. plastic watches (and bands) as a safety issue? Just curious.
