    What watch for the Zombie Apocalypse?

    To Celebrate IWL's 3 week birthday, I am officially starting a garbage thread

    The world has ended...the dead are eating your family, what watch from your existing collection do you wear and why? And when you get a chance to loot, which watch will you loot to wear?

    I'll post mine later so as not to bias you all with my perfect choices.

    ps..this is my official request for a zombie emoticon....

    An Invicta. I can rip out the guts and use the hollowed-out case as a shelter until the worst of it passes.

    Nomas Ahoi Atlantik, you can kill them by stabbing them in the head with the super long lugs and it is blood resistant to 200m and that is a LOT of zombies.

    G Shock. One of my 6900s. Gotta be either that, or a diamond encrusted Rolex (okay, I'd have to put that in the looting category- but I'd only loot from those who failed to prepare and thus became zombies or zombie food themselves). The G Shock would stand up well to the recoil of the many firearms I'd be using to put head shots on the zombies...

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    I'm going for this one..



    Even a Zombie will be looking at it going..dude what have you got on your wrist...then while he is distracted I will gouge his eyes out and club him to death this the sticky out part.

    Well, it hasn't happened yet! I was thinking of something like this:



    It could also double as a life raft.

    Not an issue for me. Zombies crave brains; they'll pass right by me.
