I have always been slightly enamoured by the Marathon line. (Nothing like a caseback that is engraved.......Watch, Wrist). Don't hear much about them in WIS circles, and only seem to be had at weird gun-nut sites and military surplus stores. Due to the economy, I'm taking a second job this season at the golf course again, so I was able to convince my gullible wife that I needed a bullet-proof watch to mow the fairways with. I like the 46.6MM size but was'nt willing to pay 2,200.00 for the Valjoux 7750 CSAR. The JSAR came out in November of 07 and has had very spotty availability. Picked one up today. Will let you know more about it when it arrives!

Nice, Rocky. I like the Tritium. They don't currently offer tubes on the larger case sizes. I see yours is a "non sterile" as well with the U.S. Government designation on the dial. I don't know which way I'm getting mine.
