Below a variety of timepieces for the discerning gentleman. A pocket watch for those special evenings of culture in the Mess.
If you is feeling suicidal then look no further than this timepice guaranteed to blow you away.
Green GShock for the cabbage. White for Arctic cabbages.
And if you have done the MoDs latest Equality and Diversity shit then a plethora of manly and notsomanlybutwomanly GShocks.

I have a Casio something or other (same as the ones Vettel and Weber have). It wasn't expensive, and seems damn near indestructible. SWMBO got me a "Bentley" Breitling last year for my birthday, and I'm nearly afraid to wear it in case I lose it/break it/otherwise fuck it up.
EDIT: The Casio is called the Edifice Chrono F1. Should be in or around 200 clams. Apologies for the massive photo:

Casio GShock if you want a watch you can wear anywhere and not fear banging/breaking it it's gone Norway, Falklands, and on and off fishing vessels as well as field use and it's barely noticed any of it. I can't imagine it'll suffer in the sand either.
Or, if you're a ponce a mere £3500 will get you a Bremont Supermarine and you can show some real class. Wouldn't recommend wearing it in the field though, even though it's tough enough to take it.RAC(TA) - 2006-2009

Sir Walter Raleigh declared in the early 17th century that "whoever commands the sea, commands the trade; whosoever commands the trade of the world commands the riches of the world, and consequently the world itself." This principle is as true today as when uttered, and its effect will continue as long as ships traverse the seas."

There is no "the watch"...it is a very personal decision on what is "right" for you. This Timex worked for me but over time I also had a nice Fossil and a Citizen Eco-drive as back up to my all-time dream watch, the Rolex Submariner. The Timex however seemed to be the most rugged.
Well I say all-time and dream. It turned out to be a bit of a nightmare, always slow with an expanding strap that wouldn't when you wanted it to but did it when you didn't! So after 14 years of shilly-shallying, I chopped it in for a Seamaster. Which to be fair seems to be going very nicely still, four years on.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
