    Beater watches

    So - I'm looking into what would I look for in a watch that I want to look good but be tough as nails?

    Maybe you could show us some watches that you think look good?

    Not really looking for a suggestion on WHAT watch so much as what are the key qualities that make a watch really durable.

    I like simple diver-type stuff. 44mm and under. Broad strokes, I know - and there are a ton of options - just trying to figure out what might last and what will be beaten up after a weekend wrenching on the car.

    The Damasko DK 101 would be my choice... Pretty and tough.

    Seiko Monster (in any of it many varieties). But some of the more rare/LE ones maybe not so much.

    Great watch, nearly bomb-proof. In my opinion, actually looks better when you can tell it has been through hell and back and is still ticking.

    I would suggest a victorinox dive master 500, literally can be used as a hammer.
