which clock ?


I'm looking for a watch that is hygienic to wear on the job. I'm looking at http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/m...hes/42168.aspx, but are skeptical because you have to touch the clock perhaps with dirty gloves.

Which watch/clock do you use? Which clock do you recommend ?

Cheap Casio with a metal or plastic band. When it goes 10-7 you can replace it cheap. Each time you wash your hands you can wash the watch. No cloth or leather bands.

I like Duluth Trading but that watch is a frippery.

Nurses used to buy watches that pinned to the smock, er, shirt.

I use a cheap pink Walmart waterproof watch with a plastic I think? Band.

It cost me $14 and I've worn it since October. When it craps out I will buy another cheap Walmart watch. Maybe green. I think the brand is timex sport or some such.

A Timex with a rubber watchband. Velco brands are difficult to clean and get really smelly during the summer if they get wet repeatedly.

Thanks for the replys so far.

Because of the national hygienic standard here in DK, we must not wear wrist watch, so I am looking for one to sit my belt.

I got a calculator watch at walmart for a laugh. $8.99 or so. Yeah, you have to touch it if you want to actually use the calculator or the stop watch function, but it stays in my locker at work and gets washed whenever i wash my hands.

get a cheap digital wrist watch, with a cloth band, and wrap it around the neck of your stethoscope. that's what I do, and it ensure I always have a scope with me when I'm on the ambulance (unlike many newbies and former partners of mine).

Fully washable, operates on solar energy, no moving parts, no scratch-able or breakable crystal, waterproof to any depth, but no daylight savings time adjustment (check back next year). Maybey autoclavable.
