I see service men and women in G-Shocks mostly, but
I think they would be better served by the Luminox because it is analogue and has a functional elapsed time bezel. Personally I find digital watches too abstract. The mind always knows how to interpret hour and minute hands and a visual bezel when in a high stress mental fog. Plus you need to use both hands to control the functions of a digital watch and your other hand may be doing something it cannot be taken away from if you are a soldier, medic or fireman.

There are certain additional advantages to a multi-functional digital, but as a basic timepiece it can fail to deliver the pertinent information whereas an analogue watch such as the Luminox is ready at a glance.

So I vote for a high-contrast Luminox/Traser such as the white or yellow on black, with a black dial.
