Spill your guts!
MATT3045 said:Timex Ironman, it is durable and has both analog and digital time on it.
Fast LT1 said:Anything from walmart in the $10 section! LOL
Lt.214 said:My Favorite is my Marathon TSAR. Great watch and built like a tank.
I am not promoting county.com or referring them, just the first link I came to
Make sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and watch the brief video of a TSAR being run over by a Fire Engine and surviving intact. Not many watches will withstand that.
Zack said:My go-to watch is the Fortis Flieger 24H PVD (Automatic).
I work constantly changing hours and days, and was habitually writing the incorrect time on reports or documents... switching to a 24hour watch solved all my problems. (No question as to whether it's 0500 or 1700 when I glanced at my watch to copy the time down.)
Not to mention it just makes waaaaay more sense.
Second hand goes around once a minute.
Minute hand goes around once an hour.
Hour hand goes around once a day.
Seems like a no-brainer if you ask me!
Plus it's a great conversation piece.
(The Fortis is on the left... my "old" Lum-Tec is on the right.)

Oh, I thought you were gonna say the squirrels and chipmunks gang up on you guys and then take them.ParkPiggy said:I don't wear a watch. In my line of work, just like sunglasses, its bound to break, and soon. I keep my cell in my pocket, and usually use that for time checks.
ISU_Cyclone said:You spent $2,000 on that watch?!?!?!?!!?
(But limited edition self-winding fantastically built mechanical watches tend to cost more than Timex and G-Shocks.)

I have an internal compass which works about 98% of the time, and its free! I had an FTO years ago, who constantly would quiz me. She would ask, "what direction are we heading, how would you call your location out if you became involved in a shooting right now, whats the nearest intersection, etc, etc". Since then, I've done the same training other new officers, and do it constantly in my head.patrol530 said:5.11, has a compass for those foot chases.
Uh oh, are we gonna have to stay out of Sand Run, squirrels getting bad there?ParkPiggy said:Matt Matt Matt, I could spend hours, explaining all the gang signs these squirrels use-its a whole language!
What'd you pay?
