Hi everyone, I am a 2013-2014 USMMA Sponsored Prep Student however, I have a question for the more "seasoned" sailors on here. I recently finished my associate’s degree and I would really like to spoil myself on that achievement and also on receiving an appointment to NMMI. I have my eye on the Maritime Logistics & Security Program (Formerly the Logistics and Intermodal Transportation Program) when I get to USMMA. I would like to purchase a new wristwatch that not only would look cool and would be within regulations, but would also be compatible or helpful with the Deck navigation courses. I am unsure of what sorts of bells and whistles should be on a decent nautical watch for this program. If you all know of any types of watches that are useful either as a cadet or in the industry, I would greatly appreciate your input. Oh and one last thing, I am not a Rockefeller by any means whatsoever, so I am looking somewhere in the $500 range (give or take a bit) for a new timepiece. Please PM me if you don't want to come across as a sales person here. Thank You!
