Been a lurker for a while, thought I'd finally dive in - I'm about to start work, and need a watch that'll do a few specific things, namely:
Really good illumination
Tough enough to stand some serious knocks
Will take a NATO/ZULU strap
Under £300 - possibly also a cheap disposable
No digital - I hate having to trigger the backlight
This is pretty important as I will often be working at night, the watch will probably get bashed around quite seriously, and I will constantly have to check exact time and date for job purposes. The watch I have currently which best fits this brief is a Seiko 007 - but it was a graduation present and also beautiful, so I don't want to risk it.
If anyone feels like sharing any of their knowledge/experience I would be really grateful.
