    What Watch Does Fire Fighter Wear?

    Have you ever wonder what watch does fire fighter wear?

    High heat, Heavy Smoke, Big gloves, Big Clothes, Highly Intense Action....do they use something special for their job?I would think stainless steel is gonna be hot on the wrist, is rubber good for the heat?

    Ball Fireman?
    For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did, and I get the sweats. I go in and start working. I'm not sure where I'm going - if I knew where I was going, I wouldn't do it. Frank Gehry

    They wear whatever they want to wear if any watch at all. If it's under their protective suit it's just as safe from heat as their body is.

    I thought for a long time that the Ball was intended for fire fighters until I realised that it was a Railroad reference in line with their heritage and the rest of their watches.

    The watch won't be worn on the outside of insulated gloves but on the inside so I'm thinking that something inexpensive and damage resistant like a Timex or Casio digital sports type watch.

    I actually do wear the fireman nighttrain due to the legibility at night and its toughness. Been wearing mine on the job for over a year and it looks like the day I bought it. The DLC coating is great and obviously the rubber strap won't scratch. Great watch for the job even though they were refering to the railroad coal shoveler when naming it.

    A lot of fire fighters do not wear watches or rings for that matter do to the risk of either of them getting caught on something, such as a ladder rung, exposed nail etc....
