Most of the watches in the "affordable" category offer plenty of style and value but no legit pedigree. It's a tradeoff most are willing to make. But with Marathon, you don't have to.

Their pieces are designed for many military and law enforcement agencies around the world, with their new Pilot's Watch arriving on the behest of the U.S. military—hence the "U.S. Government" marking. The sweat- and shock-resistant matte black fiber shell case is practically bombproof, the Swiss-made quartz movement is unbeatably reliable, the seatbelt nylon strap is tough as nails, and the legibility (courtesy self-illuminating Tritium gas tubes, in this case) is ready for any environment.

In all, it's perfectly calculated for any and everything you can throw at it. Babying it would be offensive. And its approachable price punches well above its weight. Add it to the collection here
