This is what I've been wearing for awhile:
Victorinox Classic Chrono. I've had this watch about 10 years now. Had to replace the battery twice so far. Typical quartz watch accuracy. It's a heavy steel case, but not too thick; I like the feel of it. This is my "dress" watch - I don't wear it on duty, or even at the range, so I really can't attest to any durability issues. I was disappointed in the lume, so I sent it off to MCWW to have the hands repainted. I can't say it made much of a difference. I get about 2 -3 hours of lume off a full charge, but that's about it.
I bought this G-Shock around 2006. It went with me through basic at FLETC, and I still haven't changed the battery. I have swam countless hours in the ocean, fired thousands of rounds downrange, and generally abused the crap out of it. I missed having a second hand on it, and eventually stopped wearing this watch because I couldn't read the small numbers. (Getting old sucks.)
This G-Shock has become my daily wear for almost 4 years now. This is the solar powered-radio version, GW-2310FB. Only once has the battery indicator gone below high: during the winter, I was wearing jackets all day, and I had the light set to come on automatically whenever I lifted my arm. (Using the steering wheel with one hand activates the light.) So it never saw the light of day. After a couple months, it finally showed medium on the battery charge. But I left it in the window for a day, and it was back to a full charge.
It doesn't always sync with the atomic clock. Seems kinda random when it does and doesn't. I live in a steep canyon, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. Otherwise, your standard G-shock reliability. And the numbers are large enough that I can read the display, day or night.
I wanted to go back to a simple analog watch, but was short on funds. So I found this on Amazon for only $15. It's not a G-shock, but it's held up very well after 1.5 years so far. The glass hasn't scratched, and it keeps time consistent with a quartz watch. It's stood up to lots of firearms training and swimming. Best of all, the lume on this cheap watch is some of the better I have seen. I can read this at 0500, even if it hasn't seen light in 12 hours.
I've been looking at the Smith & Bradley line, if I ever get the funds for another nice watch.
