Think you need to keep time now? You will need to keep time as a prepper even more. Let’s suppose for a few minutes that the SHTF and you and a few prepper friends are left on your own.
The need for all of you coordinate and keep time will be even greater than it is now. And, of course, you won’t have your cell phones working to remind you what time it is, or what time you need to complete your particular mission and meet up with your crew. Every survivalist knows they need to know when to meet mission objectives.
Use your watch to coordinate with your team.
For example, you’ll need to know the time when regular patrols come around from what’s left of the government, or how much time is left before it gets dark and you have to return to your shelter.
Even in a mild SHTF situation, you’ll need to keep track of the time for you and your family. With that in mind, I’m bringing you Our Top 5 Best Watches for Preppers. This is just my opinion of course, and I’d love some feedback.
Casio Men’s W800H-1AV Classic Sport Watch with Black Band
“Slip this on your wrist and you are good.” – With ten-year battery life, 100-meter water resistance and an LED backlight, this watch priced at just $15.41 is a bargain and a must have for any new prepper. It’s so cheap that you could get a few extras should one get damaged and you could even put one in your faraday cage in case of EMP. I know a lot of people who just dump one in the bottom of their get home bag. – Buy here on Amazon
Casio Men’s G-SHOCK – The GA 100-1A1 Military Series Watch in Black
“You’ll die before it does” – G-Shock watches are known not only for their unique tactical styling but also for their durability and toughness. Active duty service men and women choose G-Shock for good reasons.
The watch features a stopwatch, countdown, and calendar. You can even keep daylight savings time, should that matter to you. It’s water resistant to 200 meters. The G-Shock is designed to be functional after experiencing mechanical shocks and vibrations. It can allegedly survive a 10-meter fall. We both know you can’t.
This watch will look great in almost every environment, on the job, out on the town, or in the field. On Amazon right now it’s 30% off and only $70! – Buy here on Amazon.
Timex Intelligent Quartz Tide Temp Compass Watch
“You’ll never get lost again” – Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking and this particular Timex features a built-in compass to get you home, and a thermometer so you can know the exact temperature. Because it’s water resistant to 100 meters you can even tell how warm or cold the water temperature is.
With the highly accurate quartz movement and analog display you’ll be set for whatever comes your way, and with a lot of style too! At $175 it is a little bit more of an investment, but it’s well worth the price to know where you are going. – Buy here on Amazon.
Luminox Navy Seal 3503.L Watch with Black PU Strap
“The seals are an elite force, this is an elite watch” – It’s perhaps one of the most highly regarded tactical watches available and is regularly used by men and women in the armed forces. This is at the top of Our Top 5 Best Watches for Preppers list.
Their missions are critical and so are yours. It’s made super tough with both a carbon compound case back and even a carbon reinforced bezel. This watch is also water resistant to 200 meters. This can be an heirloom piece for your family as well. – Buy here on Amazon.
Timex Unisex Marlin Stainless Steel Hand-Wound Movement
“You can’t get more ‘grayman’ than this” – Ok this watch surely is not like the others. In fact, its fragile and shouldn’t get wet at all. So why do we include this on Our Top 5 Best Watches for Preppers list? Because it’s subtle and will go unnoticed as will you wearing it.
While in normal situations you
might will get complimented for your style, in emergency situations you and the watch will go unnoticed. It will also keep time perfectly with no need for batteries ever. It is a hand wound watch. For younger people, that means you manually move the bezel to wind up an internal spring every few days. There is also a more luxurious automatic version which is powered only by your wrist movement. View it here.
So even if an EMP occurred you would still have a timepiece that works perfectly. Before SHTF you’ll also be the most stylish new prepper or experienced prepper around, but because you are going ‘grayman’ no one will know. It’s a good option to stay low key, and you can keep some of the other watches around too. – Buy here on Amazon.
