My son just joined the Navy, got high test scores and qualified for, and then volunteered for a Critical need job as a nuclear electronic tech on a submarine. (crazy kid) Apparently when you are on a sub they shift to 18 hour days, 6 on 12 off, repeat. I was trying to think of the perfect watch to get him. My thought is a 24 hour mechanical of some sort. I would think this would make it easier to adjust quickly to what time it actually is. I know he could get a digital and keep it in 24 hour mode. However after talking to him, what he would like is....
automatic 24 hour watch.
with good lume for low light conditions
preferably with rotating bezel that he can be used to clock out 6 hours/12 hours/18 hours.
Oh...and since I am buying it...preferably under $500.00
Anyone have any ideas?
