    Lightweight quartz watch on strap for light sports?

    I was wondering what are some good options for stylish quartz watches which are slim, lightweight and on a strap for light outdoor activities.
    Examples for such activities would be golfing.

    Casio g-shocks are great but I don't like the look of gshocks on golf course.

    Any ideas?

    Cant get much lighter then this. Super comfy, water resistant, super accurate...and if it breaks its less then 20. Been wearing this as a beater for about a month now and it has taken a beating without any problems. Name:  IMG_0754_zps7618cd22.jpg

    And here's one of the nicer looking Casio Pro Trek models.

    Hmm I really dislike the smart watch above.

    I guess not many watches that fit those requirements.

    Swatch. Some of the designs are quite classical and tasteful, some are hookah bar. Very lightweight. And some have chronograph functions if you need it. And they (unlike other brands) actually consider a 41mm large whereas a lot of brands are now daring to approach the monstrosity range.

    They aren't all plastic either (I've been learning about them recently for a present).
    Current Collection - | Ball | Bvlgari | Casio | Citizen | Credor | Girard-Perregaux | Graham | Gübelin | Hamilton | Jaeger-LeCoultre | Longines | Minase | Mühle Glashütte | NOMOS Glashütte | Omega | Rolex | Seiko | Swatch | Undone | Vacheron Constantin | Victorinox Swiss Army |
    Mulling Over - | Minase Horizon | Reservoir |
    On deck - | Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8 Dark Side of the Moon |

    Luminox 3001 series. Slim, modest size (40mm approx), nice rubber strap, and weighs almost nothing - the case is a composite material, only the caseback is metal. Swiss quartz movement, T25 tritium tubes, and more water resistance than you'll ever need as well.
