I have had my current watch for about 5 years, and it still works flawlessly. Which is amusing, because it cost me 10 dollars for the no-name watch at WalMart. However, this watch has been through hell and back as they say. It has been in the ocean, pools, mud, and at times COMPLETELY covered with primer, paint, and silicone sealant (caulk). I scraped/wiped it off, and it still works like the day I got it, albeit a little banged up. However, I think it's time to retire 'ol faithful and get a good watch. Here are my requirements:
Band material does not really mater to me, as long as it is low-maintenance
Digital time, 12/24h
Alarm clock. (Only need one alarm)
Tough as heck AND easy to clean
So right now, I am looking at the Casio G-Shock DW-5600 series, either the standard:
Or maybe the all-black version, but it's more than double the price of the normal one only for a different color:
The normal one is about $40, the all-black one goes for $115.
Now I'm not limiting myself to these options, these are my choices only after very minor research. I am more than open to suggestions!
