I am due to soon start training to become a police officer, a goal I have been working towards for a long time. I have been a watch enthusiast for a while now, and want to pick up something that will not only be tough and reliable enough to stand up to the rigorous training I am about to go through, as well as daily wear as a police officer, but that is also something that I won't mind wearing for much of my life going forward. I know that something like a Casio G-Shock would be the most practical option, as well as the most common choice among police officers, however I am much more interested in mechanical timepieces. I have considered brands like Sinn and Damasko, as they are both known for their durability, but my question is, would either of these really be tough enough to put through many hours of abuse per week? I know that police work 98% of the time isn't the physically grueling, high-intensity job that tv and film often make it out to be, however at the very least, the training I am about to go through will be quite intense, consisting of many hours of physical activity per week, as well as firearm training, which I know can't be healthy for a mechanical watch. Damasko and Sinn call their watches "shockproof" - Does that really mean that shooting while wearing them, as well as impacts from falling, knocking them around, etc., won't cause any damage to the movement at all? Or does it mean they are just a little more resilient to shocks than the average mechanical watch is?
Please share your thoughts - would a Sinn or Damasko be up to the task? How about some other tough mechanical watch I haven't considered yet (<41mm preferred)? Or would I really be best advised to go quartz? Thanks in advance.
