I have a G-shock and it works great. Remember you get what you pay for, so if you go with a cheap watch it will most likely break or lose charge. My G-shock is about 3 years old, I used it in Africa for a year (actually did better than my Suunto), has the solar charger, easy to clean, and water and corrosion resistant.

I have the GW-2310

I like Seiko. I just recieved the Seiko Automatic Sports SNZG13 (order for my friend as a gift): very good Japanese automatic movement, good quality material and a it looks definitely more expensive! And after the ordering I noticed another interesting version in this review http://jonsguide.org/best-top-seiko-...r-men-reviews/- Seiko SKX007K

Go classy with one chronograph Nixon watches. You can clean it at the end of your shift and you will love all the compliments instead of going with the generic gshock type watch.

You can't go wrong with a Citizen eco drive. I've had mine for nearly ten years now as my daily with not so much as a scratch. And this is after the abuse of the middle east and an ambulance. It's your call though, you can buy 10 $30 watches that look terrible or one decent watch that's at least moderately attractive.

I use a Timex explorer that has a analog dial with second hand and digital window that can display either m/d/y or military time. Paid about $60, had it over 2 years for my military/emt/nursing career and still running fine.

I have spent a lot of time researching watches, trying a few on, and so on. Im going to be entering my nursing program in August. This is however, not my first rodeo in the medical field. Criteria for a good nursing watch as far as I could figure are as follows.

1.) Needs to be low profile

2.) Minimal raised edges to prevent tearing my gloves or patient's skin

3.) Quick and easy to read

4.) Needs a second hand

5.) Needs to have a minimal amount of cravasis for blood and feces to get stuck in

6.) Needs to be waterproof for cleaning

7.) The band cannot be porous, and full of henges or moving parts..again a way to clean and protect from bloodborne pathogens.

Not required but I wanted it..

*8.) I also wanted a watch with tritium, because it's freaking cool..but it's nice to be able to read the watch in low light without having to press a button, or worry about how much daylight it had to charge the luminous hands.

After much research and toil I picked a chinese brand called Carnival..the fancy watch boards gave it nice reviews and it seems as though they use real honest Swiss Movements, and the tritium is very bright. It came with a metal band that I removed as soon as it arrived and replaced it with a quick release silicone band made by a company called Barton. So far I really like the look and weight of the watch. I added some pictures of it with the quick release bands, look for the little nubs on the band and you can see how the bands are replaceable. The watch was just under 100.00 and the bands were about 12.00 each after a little discount offer they had at the time.

Maybe after I get my first nursing job I will pick up a Tracer or Luminox..

my personal choice, cheap, easy to read and has every hour as a number along with smaller military hours and the other dial. they come in several colors and walmart sells these too. I only wear a watch when at the hosp so didn't want to spend much on it.

Timex sells an analog watch on amazon for about $25 that has both normal 1-12 and then in smaller print 13-24. You want the analog hand for timing respirations/pulse and the military time is useful because some charting systems use it exclusively.

I wear a Breitling SuperOcean 44 with a rubber band at all times when I'm working. Love it. It's automatic, waterproof, and has sapphire crystal so no scratches.
