Jeff, you got me hooked on Invicta's right now and watches with less chrome... For the record, some of the manly things I did wearing my last watch:

1.) Trained for and completed Norseman: world's hardest ironman triathlon.
2.) Cut the skid off a gas tank using a torch at the junkyard, with my buddy Gator, who gets off parole soon.
3.) Soldered capacitors on multiple 75 year old radios with 60% lead solder...
4.) Dug a grave for a 13 year old Lab.
5.) Pulled a half-acre of briars out of the ground by hand, one by one, root and all.

It needs to be a fairly tough watch...

That's manly for sure. I might have to get a Timex Ironman, a beater, in other words. Get an Invicta for dress up or casual but not for tying up wolverines.

this one might work, if i can get 90% off:

KR, Amazon was selling that watch for $364 about six months ago and sold it out in a few days. I have a Venom and while it looks amazing, the case is a bit small for my 8-inch wrists. Amazon has a rubber strap Leviathan for about $159 or so.

Jon Stewart does it again: GE pays no taxes, fires workers, offers their jobs overseas, and Obama appoints CEO to chair the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Paul, I saw that this morning while feeding my twins. Jon Stewart is always very cogent. And funny.
