Thread: Your favorite tactical watch

    Your favorite tactical watch

    For me, it's my Casio Pathfinder and perhaps my good old Timex Ironman.

    Obviously, there are other brands that are missing in this list (e.g., Sinn, Dievas) -- so, if your favorite watch is not listed above, mention in the comments.

    I vote Casio. I have a G-Shock. I hardly ever wear it though.

    A national guard unit in the Midwest (south dakota) Fossil is the most expensive watch many ever buy.

    Ball Watch claims to want to be the ultimate tool watch. With these I think they are presenting a good case for themselves.


    Fireman Night Train (Even has a Military time window)


    Diver GMT DLC


    Fireman Storm Chaser DLC Glow (LE)which looks like this in the dark



    Ball EHC Black which looks like this in the dark

    Seriously, I still don't know what exactly makes a watch "tactical" as opposed to just "military" style.

    I had to look it up, and this is one of the definitions: Sheesh.

    showing adroit planning; aiming at an end beyond the immediate action.

    synonyms: calculated, planned, plotted, prudent, strategic, politic, diplomatic,judicious, shrewd, skilful, adroit, clever, smart, cunning, artful, wily;informalfoxy
    "this appeared to be a tactical move to try to force the CDF to agree to a coalition"
