    $20 budget

    When I was back in field I wore a $20.00 budget watch. After losing an expensive on in a scuffle (it was pinched) I swore to only use a cheap watch on duty and let it have 24 hr time too.

    Working VIP work, I never wore a watch but used a watch made by SWATCH which had a carabiner attached to it so it could be clipped on anywhere. It was good and if grabbed was not an anchor point for a grapple on my arm. Training security bouncers, a work partner had them under her control due to the amount of jewellery they all needed to wear to impress the girls.

    I have to also go with the cheap watches, as long as it keeps relatively good time. Even with the cheap digital watches they will also keep military time which is what we use while on duty.

    ...or, you could lay out a few C-notes for the audio recorder watch that the PIMall is selling if you want to be able to record incidents, memos, etc.

    NOTE: The NAIS/PIMall is an interesting place to see new products, but a very bad place to buy them pricewise, IMHO. Many of their products are available elsewhere....so once you find something interesting, look for alternative sources.

    Unless the company or client is paying for it, most guards will not have a company issued cell phone. Further they may be prohibited from touching or using their personal cell phone, due to "inattention to duty" gimmicks.

    But, one thing I've found... Looking at your wrist is usually faster than digging the phone out, flipping it open, looking at the time.

    Security guards should carry cell phones while on duty, so, as long the battery stays charged, there really is no need for a wrist watch. Just my $.02

    Cell or $12 Coleman-branded special from Wal Marche...It's been with me for about 4 years now, on patrol at -50* in a blizzard, and drunkenly staggering around Vegas at 115* (the watch was intoxicated, I'm as pure as the driven snow!).

Well heck yea I took that deal in a heart beat. It's funny though I didn't know Rolex was made in China. Learn something new every day.
