Okay, I know Suunto, too but have never owned one.



Looking for something in the $200-ish range that will stand up to outdoor (not work) use.  




Prefer a non-tier one tactical operator wrist weight.







Recommendations?

I have a Timex Ironman that I like.  It's in my rotation with the G-flavor



Way under $200.

They got super cheap (as in flimsy).  I bought one 5 or 6 years ago and the band just came apart.

What about a mechanical Seiko? The Seiko dive watches are built like tanks, in the same price point and mechanical.

I still have to say G-Shock.  I've put my multiple G-Shocks through just about everything with zero issues.

Casio makes the Rangeman, which is ~$200 and has a few more features than their regular G-Shocks.

If you're only looking for something that keeps time, then Seiko makes a $50 automatic that's pretty rugged.

Edit: Luminox might be worth looking at.

I have a Casio Pro-Trek.

Can't get that thing to break.

Lots of people say that the altimeter/barometer eventually give out. Did that happen with yours?

Eco Drives are cool.  So are Seiko solar watches.   I have a Seiko solar diver SSC017 that keeps within 5 secs over 6 months to the atomic clocks.

I had a bad habit of destroying watches.  I bought a Citizen 20 years ago and it still works well.

Citizen Eco-Drive FTMFW.

Changing batteries is for suckers.

I love my Timex Expedition watch. I have bought about 6 in the past 15 years. Not because I break them, but because I lose them. I'm retarded.

Suunto is nice if you want a big display, can put it on a NATO band with adaptors too.

Marathon is built like a tank and has tritium... :)

Luminox used to be a reasonable price, but last time I checked were $$$... There's someone else that makes the same but the name escapes me at the moment... Traser H3 apparently
