Wore Timex until they just wouldn't last but about a year.
Tried Armitron, about the same as Timex.
Tried low end Seiko, only getting about 2 years out of them.
I really don't need an expensive watch since the only time I pull it of is to shower.
Would like to get a tough watch that will hold up to work, play and being worn all the time.
I prefer the self-winding automatics.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

I got a citizen skyhawk, actually 2 of them. I am a watch man. Best watch I've ever owned. Never have to worry about battery and they are radio controlled to correct time. They are a little busy looking but I like that style. They are pilot watches.

Cheap ones from Big 5 Sports. I destroy them when I am in my shop, if I get 6 months out of a watch before I break the crystal or tear off the band it is a miracle.

That reminds me. It also depends on what you are doing. You dont want a super tough watch when your around a bunch of fast moving parts. I think in that case you would want a watch that broke away easily.

Gshock. My current one has been used and abused and keeps ticking. Wore it everyday surfing, spear fishing down to 35-40 ft, been covered in blood and is scratched up but it keeps going.

My everyday wear also, I'm surprised how tough it is all the time.

I wear one of these three depending on situation and they are bulletproof. G-Shock, 04 Rolex Submariner and an Eco-Drive. All great and tough watches. For the money, the Seiko is a great watch.

I bought this one summer 2012 and it's still going strong.

My wife bought this same watch in 2005 before I went to Afghanistan. It held up for a 16-month tour and is still going. I replaced the band a few years ago but have never had to replaced the battery and the time is always EXACT. While I was out of the country, I could set it for local time and U.S. Central time to know what time it was back home. Great watch. I'm not a big fan of the newer styles. I think the face is too big.

I wear a Citizen Nighthawk daily and have been for about 10 years. Never had an issue with it, keeps excellent time. I also have a G-shock I got from work that I've never put on my wrist, too clunky. When I work outside, at work, I wear a $20 Timex Expedition Scout that I don't have to worry about hitting on metal or getting nasty stuff on it. It also keeps excellent time.

Rolex Submariner. Classic, timeless, damn near indestructible, and will hold value forever. Wear it the rest of your life and then pass it down to your children, it will make a great family heirloom. I bought one for my son just before he was born and wore it in the delivery room. I will give it to him when he graduates college....in the meantime I get to wear it in rotation with my other watches.

Breitling makes a great watch, mine has been flawless. G Shocks are very good for the price.
