Contrast on tough

 By: jml_watches : September 4th, 2020-06:57
Hi A pair of contrasting watches on the theme of tough. Firstly my Seiko diver - what most people would consider a tough watch. The left field choice Yes a Futurematic - probably thought of this as still enjoying it on return from spa. Not what most would...  

Seiko Tough - traditional tough, go through anything..

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-07:05
JLC tough - strong movement maker, can last a lifetime, the Maison can service any movement they made!!! Tough watches!!!

I consent to your view

 By: COUNT DE MONET : September 4th, 2020-10:59
There is a lot going on in that movement but I would also say it is a robust one.

Seiko is always a good choice for a tough day ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 5th, 2020-08:13
Good shots πŸ‘

You’ve definitely got a point, JML πŸ‘πŸ»

And two great choices 😊

Two tough watches.

 By: kev09 : September 4th, 2020-07:36
Tough as they come: and this one: They look even tougher in black and white. Regards Kev. ...  

Ahh!!! The Crown.... how can you get more robust than that??

Thanks Abel. You’re right - both great watches...

Given it survived Dubya Dubya 2. A little less tough now as it works a desk job. ...  

That Stowa looks like it’s ready for World War 3!!!

This is certainly a watch that will handle a lot πŸ‘πŸ»

Ahh the Rolex from space!!!

Who else can say their Rolex is space ready and reliable?? One does need robustness, even in 0 gravity, πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ True tough gem right there Dear Ed. Tough Watches!!!!

Tough enough for a crash landing on Earth ..

That’s a job for CWC πŸ‘Œ

Tougher than the rest...?

Vickers hardness rating of 2400Hv and water resistant to 2000m... the titanium alloy was so hard iWC spent more producing these than they charged... ...  

Oh my, that is not an IWC you see every day,

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-12:21
Hardness with deep depth rating, tough one alright. Tough Watches!!!

Looking forward to outcome in this very difficult category!!

So difficult indeed!

Such a β€œtough” choice, 😭😭😭😭😭.

Good old memories. [nt]

Indeed great one

Wears a tad large on my wrist however... but overall superbly crafted piece!

That’s a tough specification Keks πŸ’ͺ

Ahhh, I was waiting for Sinn, love their watches with the hardened metal...

Ze German it is.... Tough Watches!!!!

Excellent to see a Sinn ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 5th, 2020-08:29
They have made some great watches.

Surely it should resist more than -20?

Great shots and a very cool piece πŸ‘πŸ»

I stand corrected.

never fail to surprise me with their toughness and character. This old boy spent a couple of decades going up and down the Karakoram, the Pamirs, the Himalaya and the Hindu Kush and never even asked for a service. And I really enjoyed its company then and... 

I've been meaning to

It doesn’t came to my mind another material item that can stand beside you almost you’re entire life and still ticking,maybe that’s the reason we love and appreciate them so much

That’s good to know, and my bank account does

Not stand the test of time either... hahah

Hey I have watches for many lifetimes,

Hello Abel!

 By: batholith : September 5th, 2020-10:38
Thank you! It has been interesting and fun! I agree, the Subs and SD's and Explorers are virtually indestructible. Never have to worry about them..

This one has certainly lived a life worth living πŸ‘πŸ»

 By: KMII : September 6th, 2020-05:55
Fantastic watch with many a story 😊

Something for retired Navy Seals

Titanium grade 5 ,1000m WR operational chronograph ...  

Ahhh a Master Compressor!!! Was waiting for one of these to show up..

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-13:55
While I am in no doubt that is one tough watch, it is just so damn nice that I would not want to be tough on it, and that damn articulated rubber bracelet! Damn lovely, and tough. Tough Watches!!!!

I’m telling you,the rubber bracelet is a marvel,

 By: iulianbutum : September 4th, 2020-14:13
I was prepared with couple of NATO straps for this watch,but the bracelet it is to good and nice looking to be changed

Yes you’re right [nt]

Three Of A Kind... My go-to, do-everything trio... All have screw-down crowns...

 By: HighEndOne : September 4th, 2020-15:20
The Rolex has been with me for 52 years now, since it was new. The crystal has been replaced numerous times, and the bracelet as well. It has survived everything I can hit it with. The movement has never failed. Rado #1 has been around for 22 years. It's ...  

A trio of tough watches!!!

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-15:42
Re Rolex - 52 years!! Wow wow wow, some people on this forum are not even that age, a true testament to a tough watch. Rado # 1 - I know of them for their ceramics, when you say β€œscratch proof,” my guess is that this watch is ceramic. Glad to see one not ... 

Thanks. The Rado’s are Tungsten Carbide hardmetal.

 By: HighEndOne : September 4th, 2020-17:42
The Air King is from another world.

Huh, must be Rados before the ceramic ones,

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-17:55
That Air King seems to be godly, speaking honestly, πŸ˜‰

Rado is actually a pretty natural choice...

 By: KMII : September 6th, 2020-05:59
Too bad we don’t see more of them. Very cool ones, the third being my favorite πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Ok, tough watch. For the last 5+ years, this has been my daily. It has been on every trip I’ve taken, many far away places, many many time zones away. And some closer. It’s always in the bag. It’s been in oceans, lakes and rivers. It’s gone up mountains s...  

Wow - a Garmin!

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-15:46
I remember having them as a navigation device. However, to go with you to many continents, bodies of waters, and even competitions, among other things? If that doesn’t define β€œtough,” well, then, maybe I don’t speaka de English Tough Watches!!!!

It’s certainly tough πŸ€”..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 5th, 2020-14:45
The perfect choice for your lifestyle.

Very cool piece...

 By: Ted-Lo : September 4th, 2020-19:48
The GS at least can handle the cold, that says it’s maybe more than perception tough, πŸ˜‰. Ahh the coveted Hublot ceramic bezel, I saw a series of pictures where a key was scratched on the bezel and then the key metal shavings were wiped off, that’s a serio... 

Hublot is certainly an excellent choice...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 5th, 2020-14:46
We should see more of these watches.

Yes, Hublot def does some funky things..

 By: Ted-Lo : September 5th, 2020-17:53
I think they did a dial with clothes fabric once... Someone’s β€œcup of tea’l somewhere.

I don’t know about this one...

 By: KMII : September 6th, 2020-06:02
But most GSs have at least 100m WR and can handle a lot more than the owners subject them to (or themselves). Two cool choices πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

All the boxes are checked for this tough watch!!! Be careful with that saw!!!! 😬😬😬 Tough Watches!!!!

In most cases it will last as long as the owner...

And as you say, it’s a lot easier to replace πŸ˜‰

This gets plenty of knocks

 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2020-06:26
Hard knocks against scuba tanks, fins etc. This watch has seen a lot of action in the reefs around Sydney. ...  

This lovely Tudor!!

 By: Ted-Lo : September 5th, 2020-06:31
I know it is a tough watch and all, but it is, damn - too good looking!!! Rolex reliability and robustness without the negative notoriety. And it can handle a β€œreef” or two? Splendid Sire! Tough Watches!!!!!

Thanks Ted

 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2020-06:54
Your mokaran is the real beauty of the dive watches. I like it.

Not sure if ceramic can handle a β€œbang” against the reef though, πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰.

I think it can

 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2020-07:17
Just as long as no side knock against the scuba tanks and gotta be careful when diving in big groups cuz some divers just like to crowd and throw their gear around. I compliment the mokaran with my heart. Have a great week Ted.

thanks a lot

 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2020-21:48
I wished it had a 300m WR and were thinner. This has strengthened my resolve to get another diver when things get better.

Thx likewise for your sharing your affection.. Wishing you the Best, for another diver to complete the line-up ! :))

Love that blue version πŸ‘Œ

Thanks Captain

It is really tough indeed. I fell in love with this blue version since it was released, but missed the opportunity to get the thinner ETA version.

Thanks KMII

The one with the leather strap that goes in the water and everywhere else, that thing is awesome!! Tough and durable!! That carbon one looks like it’s made of race car parts, going at high speeds, has to be tough, even at high speeds! Tough Watches!!!!

that bleeds acid and has two sets of jaws! (Images from Aliens caught by the website the Nerdist). My version of the watch, the SCED041, is not the same dial colors as the original, but still just as tough. Quartz movement, 100m of water resistance; this ...
