Seems like most of us have a beater watch. This is mine. I've had it for a few years, and it's been a loyal companion through some "rough" times.
I'm on my second strap and second battery. The scars and scrapes tell the stories of many adventures, hard work, and maybe an accident or two. It's been a sidekick in adventures on 2 continents, and met many rocks, tools, automotive parts (shade-tree wrenching), and the crystal has a few melted spots from weld spatter. I've considered replacing this one with an automatic beater, but as I cleaned some rusted steel with muriatic acid this afternoon, I decided to buy another one of these to keep in reserve. I've owned a couple of G's, and a Suunto, but this one just does something for me.
I love it because it is robust, lightweight for it's size (I originally bought it for running), functional, and it's been a reliable tool. It's my only digital, and I have no intentions of replacing it until it goes up to digital watch heaven with it's fallen watch brothers and watch sisters.
This is my Nike Oregon WA0018. Tell me about your beat beaters. As always, bonus points for pics...
