Falling into the 'watch that will outlive you' category, Nite's released its latest hard case recruits from a secret commando training centre and into stores.Sporting a gunmetal case and matching bracelet it'll take the knocks and keep on ticking. The glass is harder-than-nails sapphire crystal – ready for the odd rock face encounter – and has a triple anti-reflective coating, lest the sun obliterate the clock face on your desert route march.The Swiss ticker will cope down to depths of 200m without abruptly leaking sea water. It's handy at night too, with 16 hand-positioned long-life glow-in-the-dark markers. And should you feel like doing any sprinting, there's an old-skool analogue stop watch on board.Course, the most action it's likely to see strapped to our wrists is a dash to the bar at last orders, but, still, it's good to know we could take it BASE jumping.EssentialsNite MX50 2007Price: £250 (polymer strap), £290 (metal strap)On sale: Now Contact: Nite WatchesRelated stories:Gadget of the Day – Luminox Evo Navy Seal ColourmarkGadget of the Day - Casio G-Shock G011BDGadget of the Day – Timberland HT2
