    The Ultimate no BS Survival Watch

    This thread is intended to be fun... not a prediction of the apocalypse... religious... zombie... or otherwise...

    The Survivorman guy is wearing a Tissot T Touch Trekking. The guy on Man vs Wild has worn a Breitling and a G Shock. However, there are many rugged outdoor "survival" watches out there. Which one is the best true survival watch. In a scenario where there are no shops to service your auto or change your battery...in a world where the grid is out and there are no satellites to adjust your atomic watch... tell us about the watch you would select for long-term survival? Base you responses on durability and reliability in all types of conditions, features that would truly be usable in this type of setting, and of course, coolness!

    PS I know there is another recent thread on this issue, but many of the suggestions there would go Tango Uniform a few years into the scenario. I'm talking tough, and long-lasting!

    Seiko (edit: Casio) G-Shock Rangeman.

    Toughness of a G-Shock, plus Altimeter, Barometer and Compass.

    It does run on batteries, but I figure it will help keep you alive longer than most other watches (if not all) out there.

    All quartz watches are a fail in the scenario described, save for Kinetics.

    Personally, an Eco-drive (Ecozilla) would probably be my choice even though I've never owned a Citizen in my life. It's famously tough, never needs a battery change but isn't a tiny mechanical engine waiting to break down. Also has excellent lume.

    For a moment I thought you might be serious! Funny stuff... well, at least the apocalypse will have good unintended consequences... no more Invictas... or QVC!

    I'd still choose a quartz. All I need to find is one store selling batteries to loot/forage from and I'll have a trouble-free, accurate, no-maintenance watch for probably the rest of my life. I don't see any other type of watch lasting nearly that long.

    SEIKO? I don't think so.

    If you never believe in anything, you'll never be disappointed.
