    I'm pretty sure it's up to the sailor, airman, marine or soldier on what watch to wear. There may be parameters like has to be not flashy or over a certain cost. Nothing that has a disco ball on it I'm sure.

    I'm active military and I wear a Suunto, G-Shock watches are also popular. I have never seen anyone I know wear a Luminox in uniform

    USAF stocks/issues authorized National Stock Number (NSN) watches thru Individual Equipment (IE). In the 90s I was issued a Timex, buddies managed to finagle Marathons if I remember correctly.

    I have a Luminox which has a Seal logo on the case back. I believe they have a licensing agreement with the Navy to use the logo for marketing, but that's the extent of it. AFAIK, all SF types are allowed to wear whatever they want. I believe I remember reading in Chris Kyle's book that we wore a G-Shock during his deployments.

    I've trained SEALs on base, including team 6. The only thing they are issued close to a watch is the big Garmin wrist GPS unit. They wear Sunnto, G-shock and Timex Ironmen.

    Poor taste? Sure. Actually, the topic was about Navy Seals and the watches they sport.
