As a security contractor i work with a ton of former spec op guys. Most of the guys wear G-shocks, Suuntos, Pathfinders, Seiko divers, Trasers, Tissots (t-touch) and even a few Timex Expeditions.
This way it is better in my opinion:I am not a Special Ops expert but from what I know most brands seem to be:
Casio G Shock
Luminox was my choice 2In my experience it's mainly the G-Shocks and Pathfinders from Casio, also alot of Suunto Vectors, X-Landers and the occasional Core. I've seen a few Luminox/Traser models too!! The Luminox watches were my choice,:-!
You mean US Navy SEALs don't wear this:I don't believe all the BS marketing hype by watch companies being used by and affliated with special forces.
In all the pictures I've seen G-Shocks are the only thing they wear.
I agree on the Luminox but definitely not on Timex. In fact I have occasionally seen more Timex's than Casio's, mostly on par though.15 yrs in the Army I've seen all sorts of watches bring worn. Panarai, Tag, Rolex and Omega are common with the officers who are desk bound. The usual NCOs are mostly wearing G shocks.
In the field almost everyone is wearing a black G shock. No particular model.
Timex and luminox are next to non existence.
