I've been stalking this forum for the better part of three months, this forum has fed my watch addiction LOL, but now I need advice.
I've looking for a good watch that can take a beating (I work in LE) and I'm down to the Marathon TSAR or the MTM Warrior.
I know the MTM watches are looked down upon as they (MTM) really over did the "special ops" stuff. With that aside I will tell you what I like about both,
starting with the MTM.
3 year warranty
24mm lug width
assortment of watch bands available from MTM.
I don't like the price, and feel that it is over priced much do the the fact of the TV Show 24 $545 and add another band and you are looking at $600.00
Also have heard that customer service is not good.
What I like about the Marathon
3mm thick saphire crystal
know it is built like a tank
Really made for the military
Cost $450 at county comm
What I don't like about the Marathon
1 year warranty
silver in color
20mm lug width
I have wanted the MTM for about two years know but just couldn't justify the money, also wondering about the Quality, so if people could post any good and bad stories about this watch or the Marathon TSAR please post them.
I just found also in another forum that the Marathon TSAR uses one of the cheapest movements on the the market about a $7 dollar movement acording to this poster. The movement is an ISA
I know the Marathon is built like a tank, some people say the MTM is too, but then others say they (MTM) fall apart and are junk. Uses the Ronda movement, which is better.
This watch as to last until I can get a Sinn U1 or UX,
Thanks in advance,
