I need to upload pics of my severly abused Marathon TSAR. I wish more quality watches were made with tritium illum. I don't think I'll ever go to a non tritium illum watch unless its purely for dress. My watch's bezel has almost all the black paint grinded off from various scuffles and hard use, the white paint on the 60 second market is knocked out from speed wrenching to get an ACFT up for a mission, edges are dinged from working the 240...
But I don't care, and thats the best part. Its not pretty, not anymore, but I know that the crystal will still be there after a hard smack and I don't have to check, I know that I can see what time it is at a glance without any indigo light or weak ass luminescent paint that won't last the entire night.
The Zulu band I have smells like death and has white buildup from showering in all the creases. There is dead skin that has filled the checkering on the crown where it contacts the back of my hand.
I fuckin' love this watch, and I'll probaby get another strictly for dress...or a CSAR. I think the CSAR is sexy as hell
