Hello everybody, this is my first post..and hopefully the last if this forum business will get the attention of all you guys that love and truly know the watch world.
I'm looking for the ultimate Utilitarian watch (function being the prevalent aspect of search).
I need your help with finding a watch that fits this criteria:
1.shock resistant (or at least capable of tacking some hard hits)
2.water resistance (200m/atm cause let's be honest..sometimes it's just that kind of day)
3.analog look with clear and simple reading (think diver look, or pilot watch, or heck even something along the lines of timex dual tech analog/digital -which I wear now, or nautica bfd 101 ana-digi would work just fine)
4.chrono/alarm/timer/day/date - the more the better (also digital compass would be awesome)
5.size between 35 and 42 mm (as I like to wear my watch on the inside on the wrist)
6.it must be able to take a nato/zulu strap (size does not matter here)
7.easy to read dial (i.e. like maratac watches) - if it has tritium inserts or something even better for night capability - great if not..ahh well.
8.battery (either automatic/kinetic watch or easily replaceable battery - how easy--think suunto easy)
9.price does not matter - as I'm looking to have this watch worn for the next decade or so (also having it engraved etc.)
before anyone goes and says it..yes it's basically the G-Shock GW-A1100 I'm looking for but with a simpler/smaller look in a diver/pilot like frame that takes a nato strap.
