As an outlier I am also considering something like a Casio Pathfinder PRW2500-1 for a hunting/outdoors watch. Any thoughts, opinions, personal experience with any of these would be greatly appreciated.
I just packed up my old Hamilton field watch. It's a self wind.
My point is the service center is in New Jersey. Where will the Smiths be serviced?
The watches look mostly identical to me.
Do you ride a Triumph or follow the royal family?
If you do better buy the Smiths, if not I'd recommend the Hamilton.
As for a tough, wear around watch read this if you are interested...
Then on Amazon there is this.
I'd read the reviews, I have had this Casio on my wrist for a couple of years. I never take it off period and I cc ski, kayak, dual sport, swimming, bathing,. I do all my own mechanics and carpentry, Casio loves the saws-all. It is incredibly tough, comfortable and cheap and so coolly effective that all my other better watches just sit. Waterproof to 600 ft so it's a dive watch approved for space travel.
For the record I ride a KTM 640a.
