That Nixon is The Unit?View attachment 8342
I have always used a g shock overseas and for diving but I got a nixon surf watch (on the right) a year ago so I had something that didn't scream military. We do a lot of international travel for JPAC and we try to reduce our military profile. We used to get issued the marathon dive watches, which I am a huge fan of, and I wear that a lot as well but not everyday because I like having a timer on my watch for working out etc. I like the tritium on the marathon watch as well. I have been issued a ton of suuntos but that shit is too high speed and complicated for me. I had a suunto shit the bed on me in the Arctic on an exercise (-35 degrees btw) while Mr G shock took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. I also had a suunto start giving me bad bearings during an advanced evasion course. I use a large wrist mounted compass to back up my issue compass now.
I like the 2nd Force backdrop and 1911. Is that a MEU(SOC) clone?All the pics (except the last) shamelessly lifted from the 'net.
