    Question Which H3 brand/model has these three features?

    • blue vials
    • sapphire crystal
    • non-metal band

    The reason for sapphire is I will probably take such a watch into serious 'beater' country, so scratch resistance could be handy. I'm open to mineral crystal if you think it holds up though. I'm keen on the $100 Traser from LA Police, but the lure of blue vials has taken over (blue also being my fav colour).

    I'm not too worried about other fancy features, and will have to save for such a watch anyway, so I'm after the most economical model with these features.

    Suggest away.

    Sapphire is only available on the higher end models (either titan or the big dates, chronos etc). No model I can think of with this combination.

    For a tough use beater, a cheap resin case with Nato straps may be more appropriate. Don't worry about scratching up the watch. Unless its a Sinn, Damasko or one of those full DLC hardened Ti watches, they'll all start looking pretty awful in no time.

    Haha...I suppose that's true. I'm not interested in the high end DLC or titanium models, so sapphire looks like a no go.

    It's easy enough to get a nato or rubber strapped model, but what about blue vials?

    Blue vials... hmmm... I've seen some Trasers go for 200 or so... Even lower then I think S&W, Uzi may have a few models. There's also a few obscure brands like Tactical Ops/Special Ops or something (I can't remember) that sells in American malls.

    Anyone know why blue vials cost much more than green?

    allegedly blue is a lot harder to make than green but I don't buy that. sounds like marketing ........ to me...

    however, blue H3 watches are available from Traser and KHS but at a higher cost than those with green H3. if you are looking for a beater you should definitely choose a watch with sapphire crystal because mineral will scratch very easy. just remeber that the crystal is not protected by a high-rim bezel like it is on a g-shock for instance.

    if you are looking for sapphire you will automaically have to buy a metal cased watch if I'm not mistaken. at least there is no polyamid made H3 case with sapphire crystal to my knowledge.....
