    Black Ops / 007 Style watch recommendations

    Sharing the same addiction as everyone here and being obsessed with the military and covert operations has me with a drool reflect for watches that both serve in reality with those in the special forces and those that are designed to look like they are used by SF personnel.

    So, with that said, I am looking for opinions/recommendations on watches that would fit such a category.

    I know the various Luminox models and have dabbled with the G-Shocks and the Chase Durer lines but am wondering what else is out there.

    Think sleek, sexy, covert (probably black)... and if you could, include make/model.

    Eye candy...

    Check out Stocker and Yale (SandY). I think the P650 looks excellent. Not new though.

    It just doesn't get any better than this: Sinn UX
    The diving watches of the UX (EZM 2 B) model series are the official timepieces worn by the maritime squad of the
    GSG 9 Special Forces unit. One of the outstanding characteristics of this series of watches, and therefore also of the UX S GSG 9, is our HYDRO Technology. We fill our watches with special HYDRO oil that makes them non-reflective underwater and completely free from fogging, and also ensures that the dial can be read from any angle. And because it is filled with oil, the case made of seawater-resistant submarine steel can withstand water pressure at every reachable depth.
    We have also treated the cases of these timepieces with our patented TEGIMENT Technology for additional robustness. Besides enhancing hardness, this treatment enables us to apply a high-quality, black PVD coating.
    The combination of these two techniques makes this diving watch perfectly suited for everyday use. Adding a coating with a hardness of 2000 HV (Vickers hardness) to the tempered steel (1500 HV) prevents the flaking that colored coatings are generally susceptible to.

    When I do my ninja missions, I prefer to wear a PVD quartz chrono.

    Lum-Tec




    Sometimes that bright dial can give me away. If I want to be a bit more stealthy, I crawl, jump, and kick with this.

    007 wears a Rolex and drives Bentley or Aston Martin, so that nobody can tell he is in any covert operation.

    Trivia speaking James is in an Omega.

    Some really nice models... the Kobold is very drool -worthy though the left sides crown throws me... MTM has some nice features and is the most affordable of those displayed so far.

    I like the clean lines of the SandY though they are hard to find with limited numbers being released.

    I am sitting here watching Tranformers (2007) and am wondering what watch Josh Duhamel is wearing... so far google searching hasnt come up with anything.

    Thanks for the replies btw.
