I would say the Luminox 3901, (Navy Seal with the velcro band). I have and have had many watches and the Luminox is the one I would depend upon if I had to. Mine has been through hell and still ride my wrist most of the time.

Rolex Sea Dweller

I have been wearing my Rolex everyday for the last 22 years.
Never had a problem, it's bullet proof & completely automatic.
I think it's the only watch I'll ever have.

I wear a Victorinox Dive Master 500M. I have had it a couple years and have not had an issue with it. It was about 500 bucks though...

Luminox - no one beats it. I also have the Navy Seal. Remarkable Watch...

I remember looking into it years ago, and if I were to get a good watch it would be a Luminox.

I wear a Casio Pathfinder. Somebody mentioned before that it updates with WWV here in the states but it also updates 3 other places in the world. Very accurate, multiple time zones, Compass (Fairly accurate) temp, baro and altimeter. Good down to 200M with solar power also.

Tag Heuer- any one of them are good. If it fits right, and you keep an eye on it, the losing it over the side chances are reduced, (although not eliminated, obviously). I've only had one. It has lasted through two very aggressive careers, multiple outdoor adventure sports, and two boats. I can't say enough about it- it's a one time expense, has gone 23 years now with no problem except the bezel stop wore out, and so now the ring will go backwards as well as forwards- only life changing if you dive without a computer.

I have a few watches but like a few others, I prefer to go the cheap and replaceable route when sailing. My sailing watch is a Casio Sea Pathfinder (which I believe is a cheaper version of the Pathfinder). Waterproof to 100m, back light, alarms, tide graph, stopwatch and dual time. Gains one second every 5 days which is easy enough to keep track of. Has taken a few years of some tough punishment. Don't know how much it cost because I got it free with a magazine subscription. If I lose it, no big deal...
