I am looking for a new watch to wear on and off duty. First of all im a patrol officer who currently wears a Protrek PRG-240. Ive had nothing but digital watches througout the years, mainly Suunto and Casio.
Ive been very happy with Casio, but this time i'm looking for a analog watch with a bit more class and character, yet it should still be relatively tough. No metal bands please.
I was intitially looking at the Luminox Sentry, but ive read several reviews (Luminox in general) written by unhappy owners. Reliability is very important to me, so i decided to pass on Luminox.
I also had a quick peek on the G-Shock offerings, but many of the analog versions looked very busy and cluttered. I havent written them off completely though.
I saw a picture of a Citizen Royal Marine Commando on the wrist of a fellow officer and i liked it very much. It looked classy yet robust. I liked the clear and big numbers on the dial and the kevlar band.
So my questions to you gentlemen, as i dont know squat about analogs, can you recommend me a watch akin to the Citizen and in the same price range?
To sum up my wants:
No metal bands
A stopwatch would be great, but not a dealbreaker
