The best part is that this Life Alert watch has a very good chance of becoming a generational pass-down piece. You almost always find the watch still attached to the body, as the Life Alert pendant often gets tossed off the corpse when the Life Alert crew comes for the fine China and Silverware... I mean poor victim. Best yet, when the Life Alert people come to your house expecting to find an alone old person in bad shape or dead begging to be robbed, they might just let you keep the timepiece. That my friend, is service.

What goes along with incredible depth resistance is durability. This means that the CX Swiss Military watch line, especially the 20,000 Feet Diver can take a serious beating. Accordingly, the 20,000 Feet watch has been but through an array of tests. This is actually very rare, as the vast majority of watches are never really put through these types of real world tests. The 20,000 Feet Diver watch was run over by a heavy truck, blasted at a close distance with powerful fire engine water hose, shot with a shotgun, and just generally abused. Report results are that the watch survived each test with no appreciable damage to the case and without any interruption in the accuracy and running of the movement.
This is one of the hottest newer Sinn watches, and a rare 'non-branded' limited edition by the watch maker. In 2008 (maybe starting in 2007) an odd trend started - the 'black on black' watch. Everyone seemed to have a black on black sport watch with names like "phantom" or "stealth." Even Sinn was not immune and felt it necessary to produce a limited edition version of its popular U1 watch line in the black on black motif that people were crazy over.
The Casio Dynamic Wave Ceptor watch is model number WVQ-620DBE-1AVER, with a few other similar models in the line. The large steel 45mm watch houses an solar powered quartz movement that is also atomic clock radio controlled (not applicable in all the place Bear travels, as this model only accepts signals from the UK and Germany). The dial itself shows the time, 24 hour hand, and included in the watch is a full perpetual calendar, chronograph, dual time zones, a daily alarm, hourly chimes (which I am sure you can turn off to prevent annoying people). In addition to these features, there are a number of utility features on the watch such as a bright lume, backlight, auto daylight savings time, and 100 meters of water resistance. Again, at under 0, this isn't going to be the rugged watch to end all rugged watches. It has a mineral crystal (not sapphire), and the ion plated (IP) black coating on the bezel will come off with enough wear.

The 42mm wide watch case is made of three specially treated steel parts — for strength and durability. Polished and brushed surfaces interact nicely for a classy look. I like the design of the curved lugs, rotating bezel, and case structure overall. The exhibition caseback present is very rare on a watch with 500 meters of water resistance. The dial of the watch has a peculiar though familiar design that is truly a mix between classic aviator and diving watches. You can especially tell this in the hands of the watch. The minute hand it an exemplar of aviator watches, while the hour hand is something you’ll find resembles the hour hand on a Rolex Submariner. The same idea goes for the hour indexes, which are similar to the Submariner look, but with more flair and an aviator feel.

Apparently New Zealand is the latest country I've learned about that has watch makers. This is a very cool thing from the land next to the land down under. The last surprise came from Iceland; and before that was probably a few years ago when I learned about the Bozeman Watch Company straight outta small town Bozeman, Montana. Magrette is based in New Zealand's largest city Auckland, which is really a wonderful place that I've had the pleasure of once visiting. If you are wondering what special character a New Zealand watch company can imbue into watch, think no further than a history of nautical adventure, and the right art and culture coming from the Maori people.

While most versions are in steel. Bill Paxton's Aquatimer is in stainless steel that gives it a better gloss, and more heft. The case is a decent 42mm wide, so as not to make it massive. One of the best parts of the watch is the bracelet. With a very unique design, it gives the watch a lot of character and tapers oh-so-nicely while being integrated with the case. A rubber strap version is also available. The model of this precise watch is IW371928. These are actually of the more rare IWC Aquatimer watches. They are also pretty well priced given the brand and the features. With a retail price of ,700, you can find street prices closer to 00 (online at least). I have a good feeling this watch is also right out of Bill Paxton's personal collection. I do think he is great in his part in HBO's Big Love, but I still can't seem to forget his whiny but charming Spacemarine Character Private Hudson in the movie Aliens.
