Well, for an anniversary gift I'm looking to get a his/hers watch combo that will go well together for me and the lady. I'd like to get a pair that we can wear to our jobs and not worry if they get some hard use (nothing major, but a durable watch would do the job). She likes my taste in watches, and I like dive, pilot, and military watches the best. I'm not really into chronos.
What I'd like to have in the watches:
-durable & reliable
-simple yet good looking (of course)
-for our jobs and the sake of variety, they should look good on NATO/Zulu/Bond straps
-I'd like to keep the pair under $700 total.
1. Maratac Big & Mid pilots--It seems that CountyComm is out of both, and not sure if the Mid is going to come back..?
2. Hager Commando & Lady Commando--I sent Hager an email yesterday about the Lady Commando, haven't heard back yet...
3. Seiko SKX 007 & SKX 013--Long Island Watch is out of the 013 until they clear customs. This seams about as ideal a pair as I could get that would meet our needs in a watch.
What are your ideas?
