    My cheap Casio keeps time great after over a year of abuse.

    Vostok Classica 690B21

    Case width 39 MM, lug width 20 MM, lug to lug 46 MM, double dome mineral glass crystal, 17 jewel Vostok 2409.01 movement hand wound (not automatic). An affordable art deco dress watch, but a little larger (+10–12%) than they made 'em back in the day.

    I feel cursed when it comes to watches, every time I get a watch that cost around $100 up the damn thing fails. I buy a cheap Casio like the black one in my previous post that cost $18 on sale and you can't kill it if you tried.They keep perfect time, submerged many times in water and beat the holy crap out of them and they just keep on going. This one is several years old and still keeping perfect atomic time and date since residing in a drawer for the past year.

    New Breitling Aviator/Navitimer Huit, 41mm. SAK Tourist (economy version w/o scale tools or keyring; a Marlboro logo version I picked up at a garage sale and scrubbed the logo from).

    I picked this up the other day, if it lasts as long as my $18 Casio I'll know the curse is broken.:confused:

    I've liked these new Breitlings since they came out, haven't seen too many out in the world though.

    Love it. I thought about the Railmaster for a while.

    I've owned both of these, as well as the older version (below), and they're all really great go-anywhere-do-anything watches. I like the one I'm wearing today the most as it dresses down well, but they're all really well made watches.

    I prefer the originals vs the homages.
