I has a version of the Swiss Army similar to this one, which they have been making variations of for yearsminengr wrote:I own/owned a bunch of watches. My info is probably dated, but the most rugged watch I ever had was a Swiss Army.

Seemed rugged, until I caught the strap on something while bartending during college and the pin didn't break. The polymer they used with the casing did and the pin ripped it out on one side. Sucks when your watch still works but you can't put a band on it any more. YMMV
The few Seikos I have had over the years have been extremely reliable for me. I have an expensive Tag that was a gift; the movement on it breaks every so many years--so it ends up costing as much in maintenance as buying a lesser expensive reliable watch. So now I'm trying a Casio G Shock solar. Like it so far. I'll see how it holds up
