    Watches for people who destroy watches.

    I have a problem with watches...I use cheapo's because I tend to destroy them in one way or another...mtn biking, snowboarding, skateboarding, and about any other thing that will make you fall down and scratch the hell out of a watch. I want one that can take some abuse and not show it (meaning that the face won't get so scratched that I can't read the time. I also would prefer something that if it gets lost will not bother me but so much. Must be waterproof and shockproof. Shopping on a rather strict budget so less than $100 would be nice (please don't laugh but all my money goes into kitchen knives).

    Thanks

    Tried to edit but too late...Been looking at Seiko 805k2 I saw on rakuten, if anyone has any experience with them I would appreciate the feedback or other recommendations.

    Cheers

    I like this thread. Haven't worn a watch for more than a week in decades 'cause I've broken every one.

    Sounds like casio's G-shock might be the way to go!

    I use a Gshock as my work watch. Tough as nails.
    It only hurts til the pain goes away........

    I've got a collection of g shocks, they run from $40 to over $500...very tough. Try the Mudman series; within your budget, and has added protection.

    (You can pick up a Mudman off eBay for around $80. Your local Champs or Finishline will have them for $100.)
