    Help!! Intrinsically Safe Watches For Oil Industry

    I am hoping to find out any information or guidance with regards to intrinsically safe watches for use in an oil terminal.
    I know nothing about watches so please excuse my ignorance but we are looking at supplying our operational staff with watches as reasonably priced as possible but with zero chance for spark.

    Any help wouldl be very appreciated. Thanks.

    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    Of course I would do further research, but my first impression is that something like a Gshock would be perfect. I don't think electric sparks would be the primary concern (I don't know if there's any step up in the process, but the battery itself is only a few volts) but rather mechanical metal-metal sparking, which the resin/plastic exterior of the 'shock would help prevent quite nicely.
    I do also see a lot of reports of people having experience wearing Gshocks while working with chemicals/solvents which is encouraging.

    Patek Philippe Sky/Moon tourbillon is the ticket.

    A basic square G should work. Alarms, date, backlight, timers, resin case/strap.



    Get a solar version if you don't want to worry about battery changes every few years.

    Casio G-Shock. A lot of specific models are available. Water resistant to 200 meters, synthetic straps, multiple functions, shock resistant. Definitely something that won't break the budget. It's really the watch of choice for active duty military when out in the field, so you know it's tough.

    It would help us to make useful suggestions if we knew the target price range. Is a $60 G Shock within that range?
