    "I gotta get into the holster business."

    Exactly what I was thinking. :)

    I keep my ambitions small - I want one of the NRA watches with a Garand on it!

    I know this is kind of random but if anyone is needing a good digital watch (or any kind of watch for that matter) for cheap I always take a look at the specials page over at www.campmor.com. You can get watches that would normally sell for 40 or 50 bucks for as little as 10 or 15 bucks. They also have a lot of specialty watches with altimeters, barometers and that kind of stuff.

    Here's a link

    I have no affiliation with Campmor other than being a satisfied customer several times over.

    I'll second that opinion on Campmor. I was looking around and they do have very good prices. They have a nice Wegner dive watch w/stainless bracelet/blue face for, I think $70.00.

    Ahhh yes, watches. I also stop and drool over finely made watches. Unfortunately I'm not willing to part with big bucks for em. I tend to like watches that (I think) look more expensive than they are.

    I've also recently become interested in Russian watches, however I prefer battery power to automatic. I don't want to worry about changing the time if I toss it in drawer for 2 months.[​IMG]

    I have several Skagen's, and think they are a good value. Here's one I just got.[​IMG]

    Timex Ironman w/ Indiglo. Super cheap, but it tells time and has an alarm, which is really all I care about. Plus it's fairly tough and the battery lasts for years.

    Timex Chrono. Got it for $19.99 at Campmor. Dead solid reliable. Looks good too.

    When in-transit or outdoors:

    Casio Pathfinder

    I really don't know how to make this thing work except for the compass part. The manual is an inch thick. I figure if my plane goes down and I somehow survive I might want a compass. Assuming the watch survives as well... it look pretty well armored so it might.

    I usually don't wear a watch and use my cell phone for date & time. If I want to dress up a little I do have some kind of silvery watch with a combination of ditial and analog.

    Rolex or Panerai would be my choice.

    I've been wearing a Rolex Sea Dweller almost every day for 20 years, and it still looks great and keeps as good time any high quality mechanical watch I've ever owned. I also have a Rolex Explorer 1 and a Panerai Luminor Marina that are outstanding sports time pieces also. I think quality firearms and quality watches are both things of beauty, and also they tell a lot about the people that carry and/or wear them. I've been a Rolex fan almost as long as I've been into firearms and shooting. The great thing about a fine watch is that you can always admire your watch while wearing it, even in a crowded room, but you can't always do the same with a gun. A Rolex is as beautiful to me as a deep blue Colt Python or Diamond Back. Every man should own at least one fine watch, great gun, fast and fancy car/truck and have captured the love of a great woman before he dies. Just my humble opinion on this subject.

    Well, you can, but you run the risk of being arrested.
