Ah. I know exactly what that one is. That's the weave that almost broke me trying to learn. I hadn't thought about purse straps but it would be great for that. It's tight enough it wouldn't pull open.

I figured that one was a b****. I'd actually get it, if you make a purse strap like I want.

You're as bad as I am. When I first saw the tri-color I had to think about what I wanted it on.

I looked at those (black out military displayed G shocks) before I got my pathfinder, I don't honestly know how you guys can see those things in direct sunlight. :( Night time, w/ the light? sure, I get it, subdued light as to not give away position, but beyond that, not for me. :(

I have an old half analog / half digital G Shock and I never could see the damn display on it b/c it was blacked out like that. :( Sucks too, b/c I loved the look of the watch face. :(

And while I hope this does NOT stir the pot w/ the Luminox fans, this is while I will NOT have one either. :(

Too pricey to beat on in my book too compared to other options out there. :(

I was hesitant to wear my Casio Pathfinder as my daily beater in an industrial environment for knowing it was NOT a G-shock and would NOT hold up as my G-shocks (multiple models) had, but after 2 years of wearing it straight it has turned out to be just as tough surprisingly!


Interesting side note - the "Luminox Navy SEAL" watch in fact never was so, or at least it was never an "official issue watch" according to more than one source.

At ONE point, the inexpensive $70 G-shock you still see a lot of other military and LEOs wearing WAS though believe it or not. This one to be exact -

The Okie Corral

Nice to see this inexpensive little watch was considered that tough at one point, just like the P226 and a lot of other tough as nails gear.


NO idea as far as what the current issue watch is either BTW.

This is a great message board I have found for any Casio or G-shock fans -

http://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/


If you go to their main forum, they have just about any style or brand watch one can think of. Just be careful, it can be as bad as guns over there purchase / addiction wise!

I was never a SEAL.

I wonder if covert-kinda-guys would wear a watch that glows in the dark all the time. I wouldn't.

The opinions on Luminox are a really mixed bag. Some oeple say they are great, others say it is the worst watch they have ever owned. I guess I was fortunate to have never had any issues with mine, however I doubt I would buy another one either.

I'm not a big watch guy. For me, I prefer my watches to have a neat "feature".

I wear two radio controlled watches regularly:
Citizen Skyhawk and a Casio G-shock.

On occasion I'll wear: Luminox blackout? (forget the exact name).

Very rarely I'll wear my knockoffs: "Lolex" or my "Tag" I bought in China and Malaysia respectively.

My every day watch since Feb 2011 has been an Omega Planet Ocean XO on the rubber strap.

LOVE THIS WATCH!

I've had two Submariners and a quartz Omega Seamaster in the past, but I really like the larger 45.5 mm dial on the PO.

I also have a G Shock Titanium Gulfman for my knock-around, cutting the grass, etc... watch.

I was never a SEAL either, but back in the days, we had these cool camouflage covered wrist straps where there's a flap that covers the face of the watch. When you want to look, you pull the flap off and take a peek then revelcro the flap.
