Finally my time to shine.

If you are looking for a good-for-everything watch, you have a few options. If you are looking for an automaitc watch (no battery, purely mechanical) you really can't beat the SKX007. It has excellent durability, classic looks, and the lume (glow stuff on the dial) is excellent. There is no battery to die, although you may need to get it services in a decade (or get a new one). Leave it on the bracelet for a sporty everyday look that can go with a suit, to a wedding, or a funeral. Throw it on a NATO strap (how I wear my watch every day) for comfortable everyday wearing. Get different coloured straps for different things, and change it up. A new strap can make it look like a totally different watch.

If you want something that will do almost any occasion without a mechanical movement, basically any Citizen Eco-drive will do the job. I myself like the Citizen Nighthawk, although it might be because I'm a pilot. The slide rule on the outside is great for addition/division (how much to tip, how much tax, etc.) and it will tell a second time zone.

If you are looking to make a statement, there is nothing that tops the Seiko "Orange Monster". This thing is built like a tank, the utomatic movement is proven, and the lume is out of this world. It also comes as the "Black Monster" if you want to be a bit more subtle.

If you are looking for a dress watch, I would recommend the Orient "Union" as it has a durable, in-house movement and great looks.

If you are looking for something badass that will be great for nighttime, there is the Traser Code Blue. It is a very durable quartz watch designed for military operations. It has vials of tritium (hydrogen with two neutrons) and will glow without any exposure to light for at least a decade.

If you are looking for a digital watch, I would recommend either the Casio Mudman if you are looking for a large, indestructable watch (That is also allowed for space travel by NASA) or the Casio F91W which is much slimmer, but less durable.

Possibly one of the best deals in "stylish" watches is the Timex Weekender. The come in a million different colours, have an electric illumination, and are very stylish and durable.

My advice would be to get the SKX007 on the bracelet, and then grab a few NATO straps. I have had great customer service interactions with Clockwork Synergy. Their straps are of decent quality, and their service is second-to-none. If you have a little cash left over, grab the F91W for chores are hiking, or anywhere you may need a stopwatch and illuminated face (i.e. Flying).


u/cubeballer · 15 pointsr/nba

I think it might be one of these https://www.amazon.com/Nike-Dri-Fit-Head-Tie/dp/B008C2ATPY they sell them at Hibbett’s Sports if you have one near you, or prob a Nike outlet or other sport stores. They’re just long pieces of dri-fit material that are cut an angle on the ends, you wrap them around your head then tie it. I have one and wear it when I hoop, would recommend!

u/Saipher · 10 pointsr/ValveIndex

I actually bought a sweatband that I started wearing during VR sessions.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071S3VJZS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

When doing set rotations with friends (people constantly swapping in and out of VR taking turns) they have actually thanked me for wearing it now lol. It makes a noticeable difference. Otherwise I have towels at the ready to try and absorb as much sweat as possible from the fabrics between switches.

> G7900A-4 This watch is basically new no scratches or anything. Asking for 65$ http://imgur.com/mXPHLkH
G7900A-7 This watch is also almost new. No yellowing of strap or face of watch. Asking for 70$ http://imgur.com/SQYe24u
G7900A-2 This watch I bought used and came with some scratches on the side. Not too bad. Asking 45$ http://imgur.com/NnHroPg
GWX5600C-4 This watch is also almost brand new no scratches. Asking for 105$ http://imgur.com/5LLSNuT
GA100B-4A This watch is almost brand new as well. No scratches. Asking for 55$ http://imgur.com/nKsZu07
GA100C-8A This is the second watch I bought used. Everything works the problem is that the acrylic glass has water spot on them. Haven't been able to take them off. I've heard people using some cleaner too take it off but I haven't tried it. There are also some water spots on the back plate. Asking for 20$ http://imgur.com/SEMTdjl



G7900A-4 can be had for 60-65 new (with manual etc).

G7900A-7 new for 65-70.

GWX5600 is $97 on amazon right now new with free shipping. Again with box/tin/manual....

The used prices you have are ok but come on man.

u/jokes_on_you · 7 pointsr/EDC

I like that watch. Here's an amazon link if anyone is interested.

Casio G-Shock, engrave the back.

u/nBob20 · 7 pointsr/Watches

Didn't even spend the extra $12 to upgrade from plastic to silver plastic

u/narwhalpiguy · 7 pointsr/Watches

There's no "best G-shock" per say, but the ones people on /r/gshock are into the most would be both the

GW 9400 because it's the only triple sensor G-shock, and also looks pretty cool.

And the GWM5610 for it's ability to pack in many features into a small simple design.



u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/Watches

There are dozens of Citizen watches within your price range, and yes, they are respectable, innovative, and definitely worth having! One such Citizen is the AT0200-05E Eco Drive Chronograph. It's solar powered like all Eco-Drives and has a chronograph function which is amazingly useful and fun. No one will look down on you for wearing that sucker, and you'll find that many people here on /r/watches own some type of Citizen, myself included.

u/lucasgelfond · 6 pointsr/Watches

G-Shock 9400-1 (Rangeman)


Price: ~$190

Movement: Tough Solar

Style: Tough

Size: 55mm

Link: Casio, Amazon, and Image

Description: A fully featured G-Shock. More featured than the one further up (or further down) in the thread that I posted)

u/firematt422 · 6 pointsr/gshock

Best all around G-shocks, in my opinion, from least to most expensive, all under $200.

DW-5600

GW6900

GWM-5610

GW-7900

GW-9400

u/Scattered_Castles · 6 pointsr/Watches

In general, you can't go wrong with with a Casio G-Shock and the line comes with as many or as little features you desire. I have one with all the bells and whistles, the Rangeman but would have been happy a much simpler G-Shock (I went with the fancy one because I got a great deal on it). Ultimately it's up to you and it sounds like you thought it through on a model that fits your needs.

As for a first watch, sure I think so. It's great for students, or nature lovers, or whatever else. People usually shy away from wearing a G-Shock at a white-collared office job, but I see it happen on occasion. G-Shocks last a long time so you can easily get many years out of one.

u/Rcwpong · 6 pointsr/ValveIndex

The index controllers are not fine IMO. I RMA'd mine and they eventually got replaced by a new set that was even worse. I'm keeping them anyways because I'd rather deal with never playing Rec Room again and just using auto-run in Pavlov than go back to the Vive wands. I wanted joysticks and buttons so badly that I'm willing to put up with them. I'm also fine with VR devs never using the joystick click mechanic anymore. I hate the mechanic, and that hatred has only grown with my inability to do it consistently now.

I went from ZERO god rays and huge sweet spot in my Vive with the GearVR lens mod to consistent glare whenever there is something bright contrasted with dark environments but still a huge sweet spot. It kinda sucks but the resolution is fantastic and you can only see the pixels if you're trying really hard. Just sucks that an environment like Bigscreen is perfect for that resolution but the glare is a pretty big eyesore. I've heard environments other than the theater are better but I really did like the theater environment.

I had my Vive decked out with super padded VR Cover and replacement VR DAS back padding. It eventually was comfy. Index is comfy out of the box.

I do really like the speakers. Not setting on your ears helps with comfort, heat and longevity.

For things like beat saber, I'd recommend just getting a headband. Helps keep the sweat on your head instead of pouring into the foam.

u/Ducman69 · 6 pointsr/Vive

> I am sweating buckets.

Be careful, a few people have destroyed their Vive's with moisture. I recommend using a strong floor fan or ceiling fan to aid evaporation so sweat doesn't build up, and a sweat band is a good idea.

u/LogicWavelength · 5 pointsr/Watches
u/southern_bhenchode · 5 pointsr/Watches

I would suggest some of these: analog/digital solar-atomic AWGM100, digital solar-atomic GW-6900, solar with compass/thermo G-9300 Mudman, or a digital solar with neg. display GR-8900A. All of them have solar charging. Some of the first options sync with the atomic time signal and do not have to be set (if in range of the signal). They are all classic black and are fairly large. Should be able to take any kind of abuse they can throw at it. I hope this helps. If not, you may check out he WUS forum for g-shocks.

u/JKC307 · 5 pointsr/gshock

Looks awesome! Is that the Rangeman 9400-1 ? I’ve been eyeing that for a bit. Now I think i have to get it...

u/nmezib · 5 pointsr/ValveIndex

Cool down your place more, play with fewer clothes on. I also find that these sweatbands really help.

u/notjoeygreco · 5 pointsr/pelotoncycle

u/BridgeTooFar · 4 pointsr/EDC

Tons of GShocks (as has been stated).

My personal favorites:

Digital only readout - Mudman - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FPVUJA/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Analog readout (internals are digital) - GA-800 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075JLQCD8/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=A37VKTSZ7S1PMR&psc=1

u/KamikazeRain · 4 pointsr/Watches

Your cheapest bet is probably either the Casio F91W or F105W-1A. The F91W is a classic retro, but the backlight is just a single small LED which isn't great illumination. The F105W-A1 has a full on backlight for better night time legibility. Depending on how much functionality you need there's also what people refer to as the "Casio Royale", and if you need something super rugged but affordable there's of course the DW5600 G-Shock. All of those have an hourly beep/alarm that you can toggle on/off.

u/TedJ70 · 4 pointsr/gshock

The obvious option would be the GW-9300 Mudman, although I'd be tempted to spend a little more for the GW-9400 Rangeman.

u/roofusxavier · 4 pointsr/Watches

Out of the ones listed, I like the looks of the Mudmaster the best. Also the Rangeman is another great ABC watch.

u/Cybyss · 4 pointsr/oculus

Oculus does sell replacement facial interfaces for the Rift-S for $30. Not an ideal solution, admittedly, but you can clean the first one while someone else is using the second one on the HMD I guess.

Getting a good sweat band might help too. Another comment recommended this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FK4FS66 . It's the same kind I have and it definitely works well.

u/kcrunner · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

If you like the look there is a Chronograph version with a 41mm (vs the 37mm here) case.

Edit: just realized you actually want the smaller version. Oh well, maybe someone else was wondering about a bigger face version.

u/curation · 3 pointsr/Watches

Wow, some of those Vostoks were great looking, but not the style I am looking for currently. Thanks for the suggestion though!

After browsing for a bit more, I actually came across this watch. Aside from cosmetic differences, are there any significant differences between this Citizen and the BM8180 I had posted previously?

The only reason I am leaning towards Citizen is that the low maintenance Eco-Drive seems less intimidating for a newcomer like me.

u/Cortez_thekiller · 3 pointsr/Watches

There are a lot of different models from Shinola, perhaps you know of a specific model, or features that he is interested in?

There are bound to be other brands that sell something similar, and possibly for a lot less. Like this Citizen


HOWEVER...

I know that no one would ever buy me a watch as a gift and get it right. Even if you did decide to get a Shinola, you run a very likely risk that you will pick a model that he doesn't like.

Buying a watch as a gift almost always fails.

u/commongiga · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I think you could find good citizen Eco Drive that has similar function as PRC200 : http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-AT0200-05E-Eco-Drive-Chronograph-Canvas/dp/B000EQR6H0/ref=sr_1_6?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1335766853&sr=1-6

Or a Seiko Kinetic
http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SSB045-Special-Value-Kinetic/dp/B00756FJJ4/ref=sr_1_5?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1335767001&sr=1-5

Another option for quartz since you were looking at PRC200, is Orient TT0Z001B Limited Edition STI Ion Plated chronograph.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TeMpz-cxl8A

The Orient used to give out 50% off coupon but they don't do that anymore just 30%.. so $440 retail, 50% would have been $220.
http://orientwatchusa.com/tt0z001b

For what you get, I think it's good deal at $170. 5 left until sold out. 4 left.

If you want an automatic mechanical watch, I would suggest Orient Mako, Seiko 5 series, or Sea-Gull watch.

http://www.amazon.com/Orient-Mens-CEM65002D-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3K/ref=sr_1_1?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1335767894&sr=1-1

I have that Seiko SNZG13 and it's great on my wrist. I think for smaller wrist, you should look at 38mm~42mm. I have a 43mm watch and the lugs hover over my wrist. I have two 41mm watches that I wear most frequently and those are Orient and Seiko SNZG13.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Sea-Gull-M186S-automatic-designer-watch-multi-purpose-comfortable-to-wear-/280841797985?pt=Wristwatches&var=&hash=item416379c161#ht_642wt_1141

I'm getting this Sea-Gull next. For the price this is a beautiful piece with classic roman numeral dial with blue hands. I have a cheap Parnis with ST-25 but the movement is just dead accurate. More so accurate than my Orient and Seiko 7s26. I'd say accuracy is Sea-Gull>Orient>7s26 in this order with Seiko being most elusive sometimes. Plus with Sea-Gull automatic, you get the movement that you can hand wind as well as hack. So all in all the Sea-Gull may be your best bet at EXACTLY $120. You'll get a penny back.

Hope it helped.

u/Billbeachwood · 3 pointsr/Watches

Enjoying breakfast and a cup of coffee with my buddy today in Downtown LA and spotted his daily beater. Asked him if I could take a pic and post it here, so I dressed the shot up a bit. :)

Details on the watch:

  • Military-inspired stainless steel watch with round dial, red contrasting second hand, and rugged green canvas band

  • Japanese quartz movement with analog display

  • Charges in natural sunlight or indoor light

  • Features include protective mineral crystal dial window, date window, three subdials, luminous hands, and buckle closure and

  • Water resistant to 330 feet (100 M): suitable for snorkeling, as well as swimming, but not diving

    Info on Eco-Drive:

    > One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. CITIZEN pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995. Utilizing electrical power converted from virtually any light source, this extraordinary innovation changed forever the way watches could be powered. Eco-Drive eliminated the need to ever replace batteries, which made it especially beneficial to areas where such specialist batteries were not obtainable. This leveled the field for citizens of virtually every country to be able to experience unrestricted joy of wearing and using a CITIZEN watch.

    He got it for around $200. Found it on Amazon for about $170.

I've worn the following for 8 years and it hasn't given me any problems: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EQR6H0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

39mm, and fairly legible. Was my daily driver for 7 of those 8 years.

Casio is the way to go, here. Casio Royale Cheap, but good quality with enough bells and whistles to keep a 9 year old satisfied. Plus it's 100m water resistant, which means it's safe for pool or shower.

But just about any Casio would be good.

u/flat_pointer · 3 pointsr/EDC

SAK Recruit 14.95

Casio World Time 14.95

Fenix e01 10.00

Recycled Firefighter Wallet 39.00 (49 + 30 = 79 total)

Should come out to about $95.

If you're a lady, sports bras make great key holders when you don't have pockets.

I've seen wrist wallets around, that would hold 2 keys. Or are you looking for a phone armband that will also hold 2 keys?

u/insanewords · 3 pointsr/WindowsMR

Would love to know the answer to this as well. I've had the same issue from day one and have had to resort to wearing headbands like these whenever I game. Not the most comfortable or elegant solution.

u/h82blat · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I used a bandanna at first, but then got these sweat wicking ones on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074NZSXW6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/CAPTURMOTHER · 3 pointsr/oculus

A lot of people are waiting for VRCovers to come out with their faux leather VR mask for the Rift S. Both because it's better at wicking sweat and it will probably increase the device's FOV/remove the "binocular effect."

In the interim, your best bet is to buy a sweatband or sweat-focused skullcap--I've seen these suggested a few times--and swapping them out as needed during play.

Grips I have no idea on, sorry

poshei Mens Headband (4 Pack), Mens Sweatband & Sports Headband for Running, Crossfit, Cycling, Yoga, Basketball - Stretchy Moisture Wicking Unisex Hairband https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H25M7WF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_vVjkDbNTK7DC8

This worked great for me. It's super thin but it helps a lot.

u/rjml29 · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

I think you have it strapped too tight to your face. I don't get red marks on my face as I have it so it is lightly touching my face. It can move a touch with medium to fast side head movement but that's a tradeoff worth making to not be in pain and it generally bounces back to the sweetspot. If it doesn't, it's a very slightly adjustment.

For the record, when I first got it back during launch week, I did have it fairly tight (like how I would wear my Rift CV1) to make sure it didn't move and after 10-15 minutes I was in pretty big discomfort. Only then did I loosen the straps and saw how much better it was to wear that way.

I think part of it is both the added weight in the front and the face insert material and design. It's not a nice feeling foam.

Another thing to try is to use a headband around the Quest. Something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/poshei-Headband-Sweatband-Crossfit-Basketball/dp/B07H25M7WF/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1LT2PO7567VEE&keywords=poshei+mens+headband&qid=1566229012&s=gateway&smid=AG6PEUQEKSMVW&sprefix=poshei+%2Caps%2C169&sr=8-3

And what you'd do is you put it around the Quest's headband near where the solid arms are and then put it on your head. Your head will push up on one side of this headband which will raise up the arms a bit and transfer some of the front weight to where this strap is. It's a cheaper though no doubt less effective alternative to the Studioform strap. I use one of these types of headbands and it nice.

u/BL24L · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

Sweatbands. You'll want to stick to the thin kind such as,

https://www.amazon.com/poshei-Headband-Sweatband-Crossfit-Basketball/dp/B07H25M7WF

I picked up a set of those and they work ok.

I've also cut the sleeves off of some shirts. The sleeves work great as sweatbands and also gives you a sleeveless shirt to wear when playing for comfort.

You'll kind of look like an a-hole with both options but it's what I'd suggest. If you're playing heavy then you might need to switch bands during sessions. Also, keep a fan on yourself.

u/demandarin · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

Try this also as it absorbs sweat very well.

While this watch is easily worth the $113 that they're asking, I cannot stop myself from gloating for a moment: I got it on amazon Prime Day for $74.

u/fragilestories · 2 pointsr/Watches

Fulfilled by amazon isn't the same as sold by Amazon - a citizen sold by Amazon will have a 5 year citizen warranty. Sold by a third party and fulfilled by amazon means you're stuck with a seller warranty if they aren't an authorized dealer.

This may not be a big deal -- jomashop for example has a well respected warranty. But the old rule still applies - buy the seller first, then buy the watch.

For the watch you linked, you can buy from amazon for an extra six bucks - I think it's worth the expense :)

You can check out Seiko or Citizen chronographs. They have some decent ones which are similar to the Fossil, are within your budget and have a case diameter of 40 mm. Here are just two you could take a look on:

u/luckynumberpi · 2 pointsr/Seiko

It's a Citizen Eco-Drive chrono, purchased on the 3rd St promenade in Santa Monica for $190. Mine still runs after 10+ years, and looks great on a black leather strap with white stitching. Eco-Drive is amazing.

For sure, no worries. Any of these pique your interest? (It'd be awesome if I had a nice camera... That Symphony is much more beautiful in-person)

Seiko SKX007K

Citizen Eco-Drive AT0200-05E

Orient Symphony

The ones on the left have a couple dings from working as a barista and/or camping, but the Symphony is damn near mint, as it tends to get worn with less heavy use.

u/Nixtrix · 2 pointsr/Watches

The Nautica brand is fine. They are known for their clothing, but their watches are made by the Timex group, whose name might be a little more prolific in the world of horology.

Some other alternatives I think may pique your interest and give bit of variety based off the Nautica would be:

  • Citizen
  • Seiko
  • Timex

    Hopefully that helps and let me know what you think, I'll be happy to help you look for more!
u/Orfez · 2 pointsr/Watches

I don't think so, but there's similar chronograph version in 41mm size.

u/S2S2S2S2S2 · 2 pointsr/Watches

To build on what Coffeeshopman said, if you're going to invest a hundred dollars, it may as well be a hundred well spent. The brands they listed are all Japanese and offer a good value of reasonably well made watches at lower price points. Citizen may interest you in particular as their Eco-Drive watches run off of batteries which are recharged from sunlight and artificial light, requiring very little maintenance.

Furthermore, you may need to investigate what kind of watch you want ( e.g., quartz vs. automatic, which is to say, battery-operated vs. self-winding mechanical gear operated) and what features you would like (some watches you linked have a chronograph / stopwatch for measuring elapsed time). There are pros and cons to these things, but most people on this subreddit heavily favor automatic watches.

Based on these ideas and your aesthetic guidelines, I've pasted a number of links below. I hope they are of some use to you. You will note that Casio is absent. This is merely because they are better known for watches that are more sporty in design and which are typically digital.

As far as I can tell (I'm German myself) your English is perfectly fine. :)

Since I don't really care for quartz watches I don't know citizen's range of models all too well but this one could fit the bill. But I'd still go with the Seiko (replacing a battery costs next to nothing) - the face has a quite neat looking 3D design with the outer ring being higher than the rest of the face, I prefer the cleaner look from the two sub dials compared to the three on the citizen, and I think the orange hands and indices look great.

u/OneLegAtATime · 2 pointsr/Watches

What features of this watch do you like? Color? Size (45mm is HUGE)? case profile? subdials?

I started by poking around Citizen Eco-Drives. They aren't mechanical, but are solar quartz (and generally well-regarded here). It's hard finding mechanical chronographs due to the movements requiring significantlymore moving parts.

If you're just looking for a chrono, this is probably the cleanest one they make. If you're needing to validate your masculinity more, try something bulkier. If you like the color palette, they make some silver/off-white ones as well.

u/TheodoreRoethke · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have one that looks great and is a model that gets recommended on reddit a lot: http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-AT0200-05E-Eco-Drive-Chronograph-Canvas/dp/B000EQR6H0/ref=sr_sp-btf_title_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1376261074&sr=8-4&keywords=ecodrive+military

I bought it a few years ago, thinking it would last forever. About a month after the warranty expired, the hands on the chronograph got tangled and the movement stopped. I have had this repaired several times and it just keeps happening, even if I'm not wearing the watch. I know something is crooked in there, but that kind of pisses me off. I don't do anything active with it on.

u/lAltroUomo · 2 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

I went through a watch nerd phase and have 8 of the damn things. 90% of the time I actually wear only two of them: this citizen quartz that I'm wearing right now is my casual knockabout. Its here but I have it on a NATO strap. The other I wear for more business / business casual dress.

u/greatkio · 2 pointsr/Watches

You are going to have a really hard time finding a watch that matches that description in that price range. Nothing I'm gonna tell you in this post is anything that any other member of this sub wouldn't know by heart because there are so few things worth looking at in that range. At ~150 you're almost guaranteed not to find something with sapphire. You looking for analog or digital? There's this - it's not simple/clean, but comes from a decent brand.

In your price range, your best bet is to go with a G-Shock. They're well known for their durability, and there are about a bajillion options to choose from in terms of looks. They have some cool features (radio sync time) but don't necessarily match your aesthetic, as they're kind of busy.

The Citizen Eco-Drive is also highly regarded for its accuracy for the price. I can't speak to its durability though. It's got a mineral crystal. Looks like a pretty decent watch for your specifications.

As for the Timex Expedition...well...you get what you pay for. This is hard - your options would open up radically if you would double your price range you could pick up a Hamilton Khaki or something a little nicer by Victorinox. There's always the tried-and-true, nobody-on-this-sub-ever-shuts-up-about-it Seiko 5, which also has a billion options, and is cheap, but I don't know if they're military durable.

u/gbakermatson · 2 pointsr/EngineeringPorn

I've got a Citizen that does that, and it's fuckin' great.

u/thebandgap · 2 pointsr/chemistry

G-shocks are great. I've had the one I'm wearing now for six years of lab work. The plastic doesn't get brittle with repeated exposure to solvents. They are a bit pricey but they use solar charging and last forever. Make sure you buy a real one. The market is saturated with knockoffs. Here is the link to the one I wear

Although I have never heard anyone say wearing a watch in lab is a bad idea, what people have said here does make sense. Personally, I think that its much less dangerous to be wearing a watch then either turning your head to look at a clock (looking away from your work) or checking your phone (contaminating your phone, something you put on your face, with whatever is on your hands/gloves). That being said I am constantly checking the time. I find it easy to get lost in lab work.

u/DarthRadius · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I had a black background on a previous watch (Armitron, this is my first G-Shock). I didn't mind it so much because I could personally see it most of the time. However, I have [the clear background with black numbers] (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FPVUJA/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) on this one and love it.

u/pimpmafuwa · 2 pointsr/Watches

Industrial painter here, I used a cheap Gshock for 4 years and it is still working, but i've replaced it with a more expensive version, and ive dipped both and washed both in some pretty hardcore thinners and solvents.

GW2310fb is the watch that served me exceptionally well, I could take some pics of it of how it held up over all those years of use if you really wanted, but aside from scratched glass and paint all over it, its 100% functional.

Currently using the GW9400 for about a year now but i've been taking especially good care of it to not get paint on it but the bumps and smacks have been aplenty, and it still looks like it just came out of the box.

edit: Added current watch

u/ItsDeke · 2 pointsr/Watches

I have no clue if it's a popular model or not, but I was in the market for a gshock as a weekend beater, and I really took a liking to this one:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00791YURC?pc_redir=1408256283&robot_redir=1

Solar, atomic, rugged, but not too flashy. I've had it for 6 months or so now, and it's been solid.

edit: words

u/maplespread · 2 pointsr/EDC

I would also recommend a solar atomic watch. Currently I have two. One G-Shock GW7900B1 for rugged use and one Citizen AT4007-54E for work/suit.

One slight problem with the GW7900B1 though. It was my first choice overall in the G-Shock series because it combines Shock resistance, Multi-Band 6 and Tough Solar features but after a couple of months only, rivets on the bezel started to fall. Big disapointment. I realised I'm not the only one and found this thread and this thread about the problem and how to order/replace the lost rivets.

My suggestion to you would be the GW2310 or the GW2310FB-1CR if you like reverse display.

It all depends on your budget too.

u/two7s_clash · 2 pointsr/yoga

I really like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Nike-Dri-Fit-Head-Tie/dp/B008C2ATPY/ref=pd_sim_sg_8

I also like the wider Nike tennis ones. I think they look a little dumb, but they absorb a crazy amount of sweat.

u/vanillamode · 2 pointsr/Watches

for digital, you can look at the Casio Royale (AE1200WH-1A resin strap, AE1200WHD-1A steel bracelet), which has world time and 100m water resistance. Or see which G-shock models have dual time, though the G-shocks might be going over your budget.

if you want to go analog, any dive watch can do a second time zone by using the rotating bezel. For example, if my local time is pacific daylight time, and I want to keep track of UTC, then line up the 12 on the rotating bezel with the 5 o'clock on the dial, and voila, the bezel reads UTC time. The Casio Duro is $46 on amazon, and has 200m water resistance

Casio world time has a wonky little display that emulated an analog clock in the top right corner, and the stop watch function in the main display. This comes in handy when I'm teaching class and I'm timing short activities while also keeping track of the time. It's cheap ($20), durable, light weight, and has a 10 year battery life.

u/forceofrabbit · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This watch is a fun (for eight year olds), practical, and very affordable Christmas present. This costs more but looks pretty slick and is automatically set to atomic clocks via radio, which is pretty damn cool when you're eight.

This Leatherman is a little pricey for what it is but little boys love multi-tools, Leathermans are great multi-tools, and it comes with a pointless knife (as in, there's no sharp tip) that you install yourself, in case you don't trust your child with knives (I may or may not have a scar from using my Leatherman Micra in a really stupid way when I was 10) or your kid will definitely take it everywhere, including their school which has a zero-tolerance/thought policy on pointy objects. (If you have no problems with knives, the Squirt would be my first choice for a mini-multitool.)

This book is pricey for a single book but I had the old version as a kid and it's still one of my all time favorite books. Highly recommend, for a kid interested in technology.

u/tigerbravo · 2 pointsr/Watches

You've got a ton of options to choose from. To make the most of your budget, Seiko, Orient, Citizen, and Tissot are some brands to look at. Since you don't like sport watches, if you're just looking for one watch I would recommend the Tissot Visodate which is most of your current budget. You could pair it with a cheap Casio digital for weekend/outdoors wear. But hopefully you'd be able to expand your collection in time.

If you wanted to split your collection a little more evenly financially, there are tons of fantastic options in the $200 range. For automatic dress watches, look at the Orient Bambino range, I would recommend one of their 2nd generation models. Pair that with a Citizen Nighthawk or a G-shock for example and you'd have a highly respectable and seriously versatile two watch collection for your budget.

That isn't to say this is a better option than the Tissot and Casio. There are just a ton of options in your range. Some great value in automatics, and some great tech in quartz if you're looking at the right stuff. Hope you find something that suits you!

u/Major_Obvious_ · 2 pointsr/Watches

I just bought the Casio Royale for this same purpose. I figured I would hold off on the G-shock GA2100 because I wanted something cheaper and small on the wrist.

https://www.amazon.com/Casio-AE1200WH-1A-World-Multifunction-Watch/dp/B0094B79PA/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=ae1200+casio&qid=1572877567&sr=8-2

May not be indestructible but for less than $20 why not right?

u/Tuberomix · 2 pointsr/Watches

First of all you should know that the Pathfinder brand has been discontinued, all the new ones are ProTreks.

Now G-Shocks definitely are more durable, they are designed to be the toughest watches around after all. All G-Shocks have 200M water resistance (while many ProTreks have "only" 100M WR), shock resistance and more. Nevertheless, they still aren't completely indestructible, some people told me the resin band on theirs broke after a few years.
ProTreks are durable too of course. I've yet to use one myself, but I read about them online and there are many reports that prove they are too really quite durable timepieces. I would say you could probably feel safe wearing that for whatever, though if you plan on doing some really extreme or shocking stuff, a G-Shock could be a better choice.

Now for some recommendations for models you should check out of both lines. You should know that newer triple-sensor (ABC) Casio watches made after 2013 have a new and improved Triple Sensor Version 3 engine. I'll be recommending several Casios here I think you should check out, basing prices on Amazon (and it doesn't seem like ProTreks/Pathfinders are actually all that cheaper than G-Shocks); note that I don't actually have any personal experience with these ones, just what I read. Also note that of course you are able to find the watches elsewhere other than Amazon for different prices. Another important note on price is that this watches are usually available in different colors which also cost differently (here I chose the cheapest colors).

  1. Casio ProTrek PRG-270 (current price: $116): this is the cheapest ProTrek or Pathfinder I could find on Amazon. But it's actually a really good one. It has the version 3 triple sensors, solar power and more. It's gotten really good reviews. I actually asked this same durability question myself on this one.
  2. Casio G-Shock Mudman G9300 (current price: $126): a quality G-Shock, with dual sensors (compass and thermometer, no barometer or altimeter; personally I don't really need those other two). It is also solar. One feature it doesn't have (and which 1 and 3 do have) that I personally find useful is sunrise/sunset times.
  3. Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 "Master of G" (current price: $188): One of the most advanced G-Shocks. It is pretty much just an improved Mudman with more features. This one does have the version 3 triple sensors. It is also the only atomic time watch on this list (personally my country is out of the radios range).
  4. Casio SGW100 (current price: 39$): The cheapest watch on this list, but a good value. From what I read it is a really durable watch, and has 200M WR (most ProTreks only have 100M; all G-Shocks have 200M). The dual sensors (compass and thermometer) are less accurate, and it's missing many other features, but than it's significantly cheaper so the sacrifices could be worth it.
  5. Other Casio SGWs: there are other Casio SGW watches, SGW300, 400 and 500 – each have two sensors (it varies which two by SGW model), and the last two are analog-digital. All are less durable than the SGW100. There is also SGW1000 which is a new watch that also has version 3 triple sensors and is cheaper than the ProTrek, but the few Amazon reviews so far aren't too bright so I'm not sure about that one.
  6. There is also the G-Shock GA1000 which is an analog-digital G-Shock with dual sensors, and various more expensive ProTreks (though the only feature I noticed the cheap PRG-270 is really missing is atomic time).

    Anyway this was pretty thorough, hope I helped!
    As for me I ended up going with a nice basic G-Shock G2900 plus a watch-strap compass. I just wanted a reliable watch (this one also has 10 years battery) and decided I don't really need those sensors.

This is a tough question without knowing a few additional bits about what you want/need.

Why is the frogman so attractive to you?

You can get a ton of watch for half the cost of a frogman. But it's hard to narrow down if you don't have any specific direction to go in.

I would recommend to stop brushing. If you really just want to brush, only do so when soaking wet. Apply your cream (and think about adding a gel or something to hold the curl better) to damp but not wet hair and diffuse or air dry and use a pick to help shape and get volume. As for sleep, try a silk pillow case like [this]

Assuming the Movado is the 1881 automatic I suggest something other than a dress watch or sports watch unless he is the type of person to only like one or two styles of watches. Like the other poster stated the Bambino is a great watch for $150 but compared to the $1000 watch in the same dressy category it wouldn't be fair.

Personally I would go for a more casual/fun watch at that price range. A dressy watch would have to compete with the Movado and Omega for wrist real estate but a casual watch he can wear for yard work or whenever wearing the other watches would be too risky.

Hi guys,
Today I’d like to offer up a few well-priced pieces I no longer wear. Prices included Con. US shipping. I take PayPal (F&F preferred) and have good feedback here.

Without further ado, here’s the photo albums w/ timestamp: https://imgur.com/a/YiEaH

Orient Mako Orange -$110 SOLD
The Orient Mako line is well-known for punching above its weight class, and the Orange dial version is probably my favorite (I prefer it to my Gen 1 Orange Monster). This iteration also happens to fairly sought after, as eBay vendors are asking $197 and up (there’s an Orient Mako XL for $148 for bigger-wristed folks).

This watch keeps good time and is good cosmetic condition. Crystal is flawless. Bezel (a common problem with Orient divers) clicks smoothly. Case and bezel inserts has minor use marks. Watch will come on the pictured Nato strap as well as the OEM bracelet that’s sized to 7” wrist. 41mm case x 22mm lug width.

Citizen Eco-Drive AT0200 Field Chrono - $65 SOLD
This is a popular and well-reviewed field watch, and for good reasons: almost fool-proof Eco-Drive tech, one of the more legible chrono dials I’ve seen, robust lume, and nice touches such as the red second hand and matching red WR100 text. 39mm x 20mm.

My sample is well-kept and in good cosmetic condition. Crystal has a tiny hairline scratch near the 2 o’clock marker. Cases has normal wear marks. Caseback is spotless. Watch comes on an unworn NATO band.

Seiko Solar SNE039 - $58 SOLD
I love mechanical watches as much as the next guy, but it’s nice to have a grab-and-go quartz when you’re in a rush; if said quartz watch requires minimal long-term maintenance due to being solar-powered AND also bears a tasteful design, all the better! This was almost my exact rationale for getting this watch, only to receive something similar from the Mrs soon after that I end up wearing instead.

Watch is in near mint condition and bracelet comes with all links. Please refer to this Amazon product page for more information. 37mm x 19mm

Im wondering about the nato strap on that watch.

Think about it, if you´re going to be sitting in lectures great, but once you start your intership... you´re going to get blood, bile, spit, urine and heck knows what on you, in other words avoid leather and cloth straps (basicly anything that can absorb liquids)

You might be better with a rubber or metal bracelet and since you hate metal bracelets...

Also take in to account you´re going to be tired alot and you need something easy to read when going over tests or mesuring someones pulse.

Personaly i would go with a nice ecodrive chrono, i dont think an automtic if for you becuase a 200 buck automatic cant be accurate enough for what you´re going to be using it for and you´re going to need the dead seconds for mesurments.

I bought this watch on Nov 10th 2015 from Amazon. It is in mint condition no scratches or dings. So for practical purposes it is brand new. I am letting this one go because it does not get any wrist time. It was an impulsive purchase and I’ve only worn it a handful of times.


It comes with everything you see in the pictures. I’ve also included a free nato strap and the original strap, which I have never worn.

I am looking to get $105 + shipping. US only.

that bulova is great but its quartz, if you don't mind a quartz watch it opens up a WHOLE slew of different options under 200$. If I was buying a simliar styled watch under 200$ and didn't mind quartz I would probably look at Citizen Eco-Drive watches, the quality is usually outstanding and the solar feature is fun and very useful.

u/johnwclark · 1 pointr/Watches

There are lot of good Eco-Drive models. Some of my favorites

u/Gopokes34 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Someone else said the Orient Mako, and I love mine. Great option and the lug width is 22mm so if you are ever wanting to change up the straps or bracelet, it's very easy.
Have you looked at Citizen too? They have quite a few watches that seem to match the loo you are somewhat going for.

Look for a pilot chronograph or flieger chronograph. These are the closest cheap ones I could find:

u/returner00b · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If I might make a recommendation, check out the Citizen Eco Drive - either this model or this slightly larger model with more dials.

Pair it up with a nice NATO strap (buy several different colors, still under $200) and swap them out based on how you're feeling.

The price on both of those is great. The first one is a solar/atomic model and the second one is the standard battery model. If the extra few dollars isn't a concern, I'd go for the solar/atomic model ten times out of ten. The 5600 models tend to be smaller than most of the others: they're not too thick and not too chunky, and the G-lide series have a Tide Function / Moon Phase that's pretty awesome. Good luck!

u/Raichu93 · 1 pointr/Watches

Hm, seems like you're a fan of the slightly bigger, bulkier G-Shocks. In that case, I think you're crazy if you go for anything else but the 9400 Rangeman.

Thermometer, barometer, altimeter, compass, solar powered, atomic syncing, for $200?, Hands down it blows nearly every other G-Shock out of the water. Feature-wise and bang for buck it literally cannabalizes half of the G-Shock lineup.

No kidding, the only reason I bought a Frogman instead is because I didn't like the red highlights on this one.

u/Frith_Inle · 1 pointr/Watches

Not sure if just any bracelet would fit, but there is a bracelet called a Combi Bracelet that third parties, and maybe even Casio sell that are a little heftier than the normal resin band that come on most G-Shocks. It's made of a combination of resin and metal and is made specifically for G-Shocks. Make sure it fits your particular model though.

If you don't mind the resin, but still want a hefty G-Shock, check out the G-Shock 'Mudman' G9300-1, G-Shock 'Rangeman' GW9400-1CR, G-Shock 'Frogman' GWF1000-1, or the G-Shock 'Riseman' G9200BP-1.

u/socaldirect · 1 pointr/flying

This

Has a solar charge that lasts forever, compass, altimeter, temp sensor, plots barometric changes on a graph, but most importantly, has various timezones including UTC and I can flip between that and local. Also it syncs nightly to an atomic clock.

u/technicalityNDBO · 1 pointr/MTB

G-shock Rangeman (GW-9400-1CR)

Has altimeter, barometer, a worthless thermometer, and compass. I say the thermometer is worthless, because it's essentially going to show you the temperature that the watch is - which is heavily influenced by it being wrapped around a warm wrist. You need to have it off your body for around 15 min to gauge the ambient temp. The rest is awesome though!

u/souravtantubay · 1 pointr/Watches

Hello everyone! I would like to get the community's recommendation for a classic steel case, white dial, brown leather strap dress watch and a diver's watch. My current collection of watches include - Seiko SNN241, Seiko SNA695, Seiko Kinetic SKA553, Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400-1CR and a Timex Weekender Fairfield.
I am looking for a classic brown leather strap white dial dress watch. I looked around and finally deicded on this Orient Bambino Version 2, but it is not available anywhere! Out of stock at all retailers. What would you recommend in this style which can be an alternative to the Bambino V2 which is in the price range $200-$250? I am also looking for a Diver's watch in the $150 to $250 range. The choices in this category are quite a lot - Seiko SKX Collection, Seiko Monster SRP Collection, the Orient Ray, Ray II, Mako, Mako USA II. It's overwhelming. With the Diver's watch I would like your recommendation specific to quality and technology of the watch. This way I will be able to prioritize my choice based on quality first and then the aesthetics. Thank you!

u/jackarse32 · 1 pointr/running

well, obviously can't STOP the sweat, hehe. but i sweat like no one's business. and the worst part is when wearing glasses and i sweat on them, even just standing outside not doing anything.

when running or cycling i generally use the Sweat GUTR to keep sweat out of my eyes. it is plastic, but it's profile is minimal so still allows air/wind to cool you off.

https://www.amazon.com/Sweat-GUTR-FBW00-P-Sweatband/dp/B00JDN6O9Q

running wise tho, that's about it, i can't run with things in my hands, but having grown up in phoenix, i'm pretty much used to the heat.

when cycling tho, i'll wear a camelbak with cold water, and ice packs between the bladder and my back. before the gutr tho, i would take like 3-4 headbands with me and switch them out every 30 min or so.

also, when exercising i always wear drifit

u/Tancho_Ko · 1 pointr/Vive

I just thought about this problem today and started to look at accessories for runners. I found this weird non absorbent head band. Very simple design, basically a channel to collect sweat and rinse down the sides of your head.

Please tell me about it, if you want to give it a try.

Jacket

u/Crowsby · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Jacket: Burton GoreTex snowboarding jacket

Pants: Prana Zion stretch

Hat: Walz wool cap with earflaps <3

Balaclava: Buff knockoff. Super thin, doesn't impede breathing, dries quickly, awesome.

Toe covers: Giro toe covers. Keeps my toes warm and dry.

In general, I've found that most of my snowboarding outerwear does a great job pulling double duty as cycling attire. It's very visible, breathable, waterproof, run a bit long, and has venting options. I think it's silly to go out and spend hundreds of dollars just to have a specifically cycling-branded garment if there's no need otherwise.

This is for Portland, so it needs to be ready for cold, rain, both, and/or possibly snow.

I just got these thermal base layer tops in the mail, and wearing them now. For $7.99 and free shipping, they're awesome - although I already ran today, so I won't have a report until tomorrow. And because I'm cheap, I also got this $8 generic version of the Buff, and it's great - for ears, neck, mouth, anything. Also, I got gloves, which help a ton.

For milder weather, like 40 F, I wear just a cotton long-sleeved shirt, because 5 minutes in, I need to roll up the sleeves.

In high winds, I wear a windbreaker. It's very light, obviously blocks out wind, and I can easily remove it if (when!) I get hot, and just tie it around my waist.

A cycling cap, a bandana, a do-rag or a halo headband all do the trick.

I haven't modified any of my gear (except for waxed laces or a TackiMac grip) but the one thing I'll say about sweaty forehead/dripping is to consider a skullcap or headband instead of the pads. I fought with sweat dripping into my eyes and ended up buying a sport headband/sweatband for [$10 from Amazon] (https://www.amazon.com/Tough-Headwear-Mens-Headband-Midnight/dp/B01G4RQCF4) and haven't had any issues since. It does get gross and full of sweat after a game but throw it in the wash and you'll be good to go for next game. Plus, if you have longer hair, it keeps it out of your face for a normal workout or walk/jog/run.

u/HulkTogan · 1 pointr/Vive

This is the headband I bought. I place is right underneath my hairline for best absorption.

u/OppositeFeature · 1 pointr/loseit

I leave them at home in a little ring dish - they don't get lost there and I don't risk injury at the gym by wearing them. Emergency scenario - I put them on a necklace chain if I happen to be wearing one. Once I just tied them into my shoe laces because I didn't have a necklace on and after learning what degloving is, I wouldn't ever do any weight lifting with a ring on.


They also make wristbands with storage such as this one, but then I'd definitely inspect the quality of the seams to make sure it is solid before storing something small such as rings.

u/dryan0 · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

u/J_F_Sebastian · -1 pointsr/Watches

It's disappointing to hear that the $150 restriction will need to go, especially because I am pretty convinced that it is possible to make the watch I want for a lot less than that. Digital watch modules are dirt cheap, so 90% of the cost will be the steel and sapphire, and there are <$150 analogue watches that have those.

My $150 budget wasn't arbitrary. I actually did the maths, based on my age, countrie's life expectancy, how long my plastic Casios usually last me, planning for 3 instances of loss/theft over the rest of my life, etc. At about $150 for a watch that can last roughly 17 years, I am basically paying the same as a never ending string of $15 Casios. I'm willing to pay a bit more than that for the convenience of not having to go watch shopping every few years, but not twice as much, that's just not sensible. The watch market just seems really messed up / distorted by people with impractical utility functions.

I have checked out the Citizen Ecodrives, and really do like the technology. The fact that they go into a "sleep mode" when they don't get enough light where they stop moving the hands but keep the quartz oscillator running is super sexy. I did find a chronograph for under $150, so it's an option (all it misses is the calendar and the sapphire). What turned me off was being unable to convince myself that analogue chronographs are a good idea. Looking at that photo, I can envisage times when the chronograph hands are occluded by the minute or hour time, meaning I might be stuck with +/- 2 minutes of uncertainty on the chronograph time unless I wait a long time for the hands to move, and that just feels like such a stupid limitation to have to live with.

Regarding the perpetual calendar thing: it's not that I literally don't have a spare 50 seconds per year. Part of it is that, as explained above, my baseline watch experience is cheap digitals, which just do this for me and I don't have to think about it - paying a bit more to get a nicer watch is not an appealing prospect to me if doing so gives me more work to do. It's not hard work, or a lot of work, it just feels kind of perverse to me, in a philosophical sense. I buy machines to make my life more convenient, not less. Having to reset the calendar most months is an obligation, and a machine should not give me an obligation unless it is removing an equivalent obligation(s) from me. Another part of it is that I just know full well there will be months I'll forget to do it, and it's the kind of error which could conceivably go unnoticed for a week. I just feel like things which are important enough that they need to be right, easy enough to forget that I'm likely to do it once or twice a year, and simple enough to automate using a very small, very cheap, very reliable bit of technology (like a 4 bit digital counter) should be automated.

I fully understand that people in group (iii) (people who appreciate the intricate mechanical engineering and/or fine traditional craftsmanship of mechanical watches) might actually appreciate the necessary interaction with their watch that resetting the date requires. Kind of like feeding a beloved pet, almost.

u/eggo · -3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

>you want an item that can work for [life]. This almost always means a good quality, expensive mechanical watch that is worth enough to warrant getting repaired in the future,

You can't be serious with that can you? I would bet you any amount of money on a longevity test between this watch and any mechanical watch money can buy.

Your very expensive mechanical watches might be well engineered masterworks of craftsmen and artisans, etc. But don't try to pretend they are good at keeping time. Nor are they anywhere as reliable as a solid state device.
