I was issued this somewhere around 1999 or 2000.
I have only taken it off for a one month stint to replace the rubber watchband that finally gave way in 2009. It survived many countries and several engagements, but the crystal is still unmarked...the bezel, well...its a bit dinged up.
Love the tritium gas lights...so bright I have been able to use it as a low level flashlight in pitch black.
It still runs a few seconds fast per 24 hours, but most automatic watches do.

I wear the Luminox Evo Navy Seal Blackout Mens Watch 3051.BLACKOUT as my daily. I replaced the band with a standard 22mm NATO strap. As others have stated, the Luminox are super easy to see at night, and this one features purple and orange tritium tinting rather than the standard green. Looks pretty sharp overall. The quality is pretty good and since it's a composite case it's very light as well.
I've had a bunch of G-Shock watches thanks to my sister and brother-in-law working for Casio in the timepiece division. They make a good product between the standard G-Shocks and the Pathfinder series. I also have a Citizen Ecodrive field watch I wear on occasion. I got rid of my $500+ Suunto after it crapped the bed on me more than once (was issued to me when I was active duty).
I am totally sold on the Luminox now after doing some research. Now all I have to do is to free up some cash from one of my many projects!!

My Luminox is still doing great, and it is the same battery from several years back when I bought it.
January 15th 2009 was when I bought it.

I'm on this thread because I've been shopping for a digital. My Luminox is around 8-9 years old and is still "read the fine print at night" bright. I had to replace a broken clasp on it and the crystall is beat up and scratched, but if I'd replace it, it'd look 95% new. Also it holds time amazingly well, especially compared to my Seiko automatics.
I've been thinking of a Casio with an alarm
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
I absolutely love my Suunto Core (all black). Even though I have a gps on the trail its nice to just be able to look at your wrist to check the altitude. I also just love the all black look
I have been wearing a $9.99 Walmart watch kayaking this spring. There is no brand name on it, but it says "water resistant to 30 Meters". I strap it on over my neoprene glove so I can easily see the time. It stays soaked for long periods of time. After six trips, it's still going strong. I new it would be abused, so I went cheap, but so far so good. I carry my blackberry in a waterproof box, but it is too much hassle for quick time checks between rapids.
