What kind of watch to Jeep drivers wear?

Since it's sort of a "tool" car I'd imagine there would be a lot of "tool" watch fans on this forum.

Feel free to post pics =)

I, myself am a Panerai nut.. so my everyday "nice" watch is a PAM 111 on a vintage leather ammo strap:





My rugged beater watch is a Tissot T-touch on black rubber strap.

(don't have a pic handy)


What do you wear?!

Wal-mart special 9$ with 31 days in every month....

There are a few people on here that are into the very expensive kind.

Real Jeep drivers don't wear watches. They have phones. The Jeep comes with a clock. So does the phone. That's aready too many ways to be reminded of the time. Nobody really cares what time it is anyway while Jeepin.

i don't wear a watch any more b/c it usually just gets in the way, plus as bird dog said my phone has a clock and i always have that with me. when i used to work in the medical field, my watch of choice was the timex ironman (for women). that watch would take anything i would throw at it. my husband had the same problem he kept breaking his watches when he would work on our jeeps. but when he did wear a watch it was always the wally world special.

I'm not fancy. Cheap Timex expedition. About $40. I break them to much to buy a too nice of a watch.

Bare wrist. I'm in the Jeep, I know I'm running late, I don't need the reminder.

Cheap digital Timex for work. Not so cheap Citizens, and Swiss army, and a few Skagens for other times.

I've been sporting the cheapo more and more though.

I like Timex as well. I sport a Casio G-Shock right now though. Found it in my apartment parking lot entrance 3 years ago and still going strong. Just changed the band to a nice tactical nylon band.
