    I have a Timex IronMan. It is waterproof and with a very heavy plastic band and,I can wash it anytime I want. It's also digital and I have it set to military time.

    If I get 'nasties' on it, I can slip it off, wash it, and "keep on tickin' "

    I have a Nursemate w/ a leather band. I really appreciate the military time feature, and it has nice big numbers for dimmly lit rooms. Wish it had Indiglo, like a couple other of my watches, but they don't have military time... The Swiss Army watch earlier in the thread looked great - does it have an Indiglo type feature? (I couldn't tell from the pics, although the date feature is also very cool! - for those 11 - 7 shifts...)

    I wear Fossil for a couple reasons...definitely handles the water but also the Fossil bands have added links so that you can wear it higher up on the arm a bit so that when you wash your hands you can also do the wrists...and they last for years! Love them!!! I own 6 I think....since my feet have issues and cute shoes are no longer an option I think I have switched to a watch fetish....LOL

    I use this one from Dakota Watch Company. I even paid a few extra dollars and had my name engraved on the front just in case it ever decides to try and "walk away".

    I also had problems with the leather bands irritating me, so for Christmas after my first semester of NS was done, I asked for a new band. My parents surprised me with a Citizen Eco-Drive instead. This watch was pricey, but she got it at Kohl's on sale, and you never need to replace the battery(runs on light). This watch is practically indestructable.

    mine is similar, and i love it. it's lasted several years now, so at $200 it was a bargain compared to the cheaper $50 watches which self-destructed early, gave me rashes or just looked cheap!
