    Weekend tank watch

    Hello everyone.

    Looking for a weekend quartz watch.
    $500 to $1,500 retail- prefer micro brands if possible.
    Criteria:
    1) Quartz (as stated)
    2) Non chronograph
    3) Non diver
    4) A tank - something that can take a beating
    5) Not a dress watch
    6) Nato strap or rubber or possible leather (non dressy)
    7) Date window optional
    8) Prefer DLC or PVD coating
    9) Mid range quartz movement. Long battery life more important than accuracy.
    10) Sapphire crystal

    Appreciate recommendations!!

    Any questions let me know as I can revise the listing.

    Regards,
    Mark

    There are plenty of watches to fit your bill
    G-Shock analog digital should be also fine, but it don't come with sapphire. However it ultimate tank.

    Protrek has all you need and a lot extra. People love their Protreks:
    Full ABC , solar, atomic, some titanium you may ask folks on F17 who own them.
