For a long time, I had an authentic military issue watch, but then lost it somehow. Getting a Eco-drive reminded me how much I liked that old wathc. “”: is a great source for authentic military timepieces. “Marathon”: makes the el cheapo watches that the US Army gives out. It is high impact plastic and in my eyes, look beautiful because it is so functional.

The last watches are from a 2006 contract and is called the Navigator. It has tritium gas and a nylon strap. They are a little hard to find, but a query to ebay for “Marathon watch -timex” will get you there.
