Best watches for active military service?

I am an active member of the German army and I am collecting watches but I want to wear the watches wich I am collecting.

So I need some recommendations for some watches I can use at work.

I have many G-Shocks and I think they are great but I don’t need anymore of them, so please no G-Shocks 😅

Thanks to everyone sending recommendations!

Have you considered a Hamilton Khaki Field? I am not sure if they are shock resistant though…

Yes I have! Not the exact model but I definitely like the looks! 👍 Thank you!

The Canadian-manufactured Marathon is a military-spec watch I believe and very rugged!

CWC originally made watches for the British military but now sells to the public. They have mechanical and quartz options for some of their watches. I've thought about the Mellor 72.

Thank you! I will take a look at CWC! 👍

I wore a Suunto Core when I was in the Marines. I loved it at the time, but my tastes have matured since then. Now, I would recommend a Hamilton Khaki just like seikoboi said. Luminox is also an option, but they have VERY mixed reviews.

Thank you! I think the Suunto would be a little bit to big for my wrist. But I will take a look at Luminox, do you know any good model?

I had looked at the 3051.bo and really liked the price in the past. But, I wouldn't feel right recommending it to you since I've never actually owned it.

I'd recommend any of these! Thanks for your service and stay safe dude!
