Millennium Zodiac1060 viewsApproximately 500 of this deep blue dial color and round case style were made circa 2000 to celebrate the original Astrographic line introduced by Zodiac in 1971 (two other dial colors and a square case style were also made). This hallmarks of the Astrographic are the floating red dot orbiting around the edge to indicate seconds, and floating minute and hour hands. This particular dial and hands style was dubbed a "Mystery Dial."

I see service men and women in G-Shocks mostly, but1013 viewsI 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.
