Running Through Corridors, Volume 1, The 60s: Rob and Toby's Marathon Watch of Doctor Who

Creator: Robert Shearman, Toby Hadoke | 2010-12-14

About this book
In Running Through Corridors, two Doctor Who lovers of old - Robert Shearman and Toby Hadoke - embark on an epic quest of friendship: spend the 'gap year' of 2009 (when Doctor Who consisted of a handful of specials rather than a full season) re-watching the whole of Who two episodes a day, every day, from the show's start in 1963 and ending with David Tennant's swan song on New Year's, 2010. This three-volume series contains Shearman and Hadoke's diary of that experience - a grand opus of their wry observations about the show, their desire to see the good in every story, and their chronicle of the real-life changes to Who in that year. With this book, Who fans will feel that they're watching along with Shearman (World Fantasy Award winner, Hugo Award nominee and writer on the new Doctor Who) and Hadoke (renowned stage performer for his one-man comedy show, 'Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf') as they make their 'grand journey' through the world's most wonderful and longest-running drama series.

    Poor Quality

    My watch just arrived. It came in about 4-5 days. As expected, it came in a plain brown box. The watch was not running when it arrived, but with some winding, I had it going. Obviously, I cant speak to accuracy, yet. I think its a cool looking watch. Its relatively small and very light weight. The strap is cheap, but comfortable. The second hand is hackable, meaning that when you pull out the crown, it stops the second hand, so that you can truly synchronize your watch with others. The crystal is plastic, but clear. I understand from other reviews that it might be easily scratchable. I like the look of the watch, especially the nuclear symbol. The caseback is metal and the case is fiber. It is supposed to be very durable and it seems like it will be. I bought this for the tritium. Its one of the cheapest watches you can get with tritium. Its not quite as bright as I had hoped, but it is still very cool.I wish the second hand had some on it, or at least some lume. All in all, so far so... 1/5 Antony S.

    Modern military watch

    I'll start out by saying that I love military/aviation/marine watches. So when I saw the Marathon watch it immediately went on my must get list. The Marathon gen purpose's design is based on MIL-SPEC MIL-W-46374 used in the Vietnam war era which is a design that predates the GG-W-113. What truly sets this watch apart though is that it utilizes the best parts of both modern watches and historical watches of that era. The crystal is true to history and is domed acrylic like its historical counterpart. However unlike watches of that era which were made to be disposed of once they were broken and hence did not have a caseback that could be opened, the Marathon gen purpose has a snap-on caseback. This allows you to service the watch (every 5 years like you should any mechanical watch to ensure lasting running condition).

    0 1/5 Terry M. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194027 Swiss Made Military Diver's Medium Watch with Tritium (Watch) I felt compelled to write this review to save others the hassle I'm now going through. It is in no way Amazon or the seller's fault for my 1 star review. It is my sheer disappointment in the product. It is NOT misleading, the item states it is a 36mm in diameter watch, I just thought as a chunky watch that it would appear bigger in person. It does NOT. I opened the package and the first words out of my mouth were "what am I supposed to do with that?". It really is a tiny watch more for a child or woman. This is not a man's watch by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps Marathon would be open to calling it the " small divers watch" to avoid any further confusion.Again, nothing against Amazon or Marathon just don't order this watch expecting it to be bigger than you thought. It definitely is not. Thank you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 22, 2014

    Big, chunky watch built like a tank

    If you like true military watches with some heft to them you will like this. It is definitely bold, without being "fake garish" like some of the large watches I've seen out there. This will fit under MOST dress shirt sleeves, but many are a bit snug. I was able to get this during a small window for two hundred less than it normally runs. These are true Search and Rescue watches as supplied to multiple militaries and agencies. There are smaller versions, so make sure you get the one you like. My main goal with a watch is primarily for function...I want to be able to get it wet and still have it work, and endure some abuse. This one fits the bill. I have since added a stainless band (22mm SUPER Engineer Type II Solid Stainless Steel Straight End Watch Band-Push Button) and it definitely dressed it up a bit and matches in size and build, but I still like a Zulu on it as well. I have not really tried the rubber strap that came with it.

    Marathon JSAR

    4 out of 5 rating due to MY personal opinion/preference - original strap is thin for the type and size watch, although very comfortable. Ordered an ISOfrane strap (thicker) as a replacement. This watch is one of those things you need to physically hold in your hand, use, and wear to genuinely appreciate it for what it is. Build quality and attention to detail is good. MaraGlo lume works well. Seems a few of the markers have a thinner application of maraglo vs the remaining markers. Besides this and the thin strap, its a really nice watch. I did end up ordering a second JSAR due to the maraglo lume issue. The second JSAR had some play in the bezel, both vertical and counter clockwise. I ended up returning the second and keeping the first JSAR. Excellent customer service from Amazon. The watch works, Im just a stickler for attention to detail.

This review is from: MARATHON WW194018 Swiss Made Military Jumbo Diver's LGP JSAR Watch with MaraGlo (Watch) This is quite a watch. I don't normally wear watches this large, but it is such a great looking time piece that I decided to keep it - and I'm glad I did. It took about a day to adjust to it's size, and now It's totally comfortable. I wear it daily and it is very rugged. The strap is definitely too thin so I replaced it with a super engineer metal strap which looks great. All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Excellent mil-spec watch!

    First thing I'd like to get out of the way is the size of this timepiece: it wears small. By today's standards anyway. However, before watches became the size of manhole covers this used to be considered "normal". So, if you're the type of person who likes watches the size of manhole covers or dinner plates then this watch is NOT for you.So who is this watch for exactly? If you're a military watch collector searching for a mil-spec watch, then this may just be the ticket. This conforms to the MIL-PRF-46374G specification, supposedly the last known version of the MIL-W-46374 series of US military watches. One thing I really liked about this watch is it's weight. Having owned and used the Stocker and Yale (SandY) and Traser Type 3 version of this mil-spec watch, I would have to say that this Marathon is the most unobtrusive among the three.

    Can't trust this watch.

    I've had this watch for a couple of years, but wore it sparingly during that time.I liked its smaller size - personally I think most men's watches these days are on the large side, easily caught on various things when you're working. And it's very lightweight, comfortable on the arm. The dial is easy to read in all lighting conditions and the tritium light tubes very bright compared to some other watches I've had. The included band is just barely big enough for my wrist but that was OK with me.That's the good; now the bad. Worst is the plastic watch "crystal" which is *very* easily scratched and, due to its shape, simply not replaceable by anything more durable. I'll get back to this in a minute. Also, the quality of assembly is lacking. After a few weeks of wear, I found two of the tritium light tubes floating around inside the watch face. I took it to two local watch repair shops - both said they wouldn't touch it.

    OUTSTANDING accuracy! (Just protect the crystal)

    Got one around 2007, I'm still wearing it as I type this. I think I've put maybe two or three batteries in it, but battery replacement's a breeze. It has a pliable battery cover, so no need for spanner wrenches, jackhammers & air compressor to open the case. The accuracy is uncanny, especially for an analog watch. I've synchronized it with GPS, stratum 1 clocks, etc and I've never seen it off more than a second with a good battery. I understand they have a Swiss movement, which would go a long way to explain the performance. Also search for other marathon watches, they get extremely high marks, and for good reason.The tritium's still bright after 5 years, the crown's worn down but the case held up perfectly. No leaks or failures of any kind, just an occasional battery. If it ever dies or it's lost, it gets a state funeral. And I immediately run out & get another Marathon watch.

    Good value for a basic GPS watch

    I've been running recreationally for four years, three to four times a week, usually with one long run on Sundays. I bought this watch two weeks ago because I wanted a cheap, simple, waterproof GPS watch that shows current running speed.For those of you new to GPS watches, you should know that GPS watches don't give you an instant pace, but an "average" current pace over some number of seconds. During my first run, I did a little experiment to see how fast this watch picks up the change in speed. At warm-up, watch was showing 6.1min/km. I sped up to the pace I know from experience was about 5 min/km. Initially nothing happened. After 20-30 seconds, pace changed to 5.8, then after another 10-15 seconds to 5.6, and it kept going down. It took around a minute to go down to 5.1min/km.It is fairly simple to use: you press the GPS button, wait 30 seconds to pick up the signal, click "Mode" few times till you find "Run", and press "Start".

    Works well if you're okay with its limitations

    I purchased this GPS watch to help my training for an upcoming 10K. I was looking for a watch that could tell me my current pace, because I was trying to maintain a 7.5min/mile pace for my training. The watch fit well and is a little bulky, but that is to be expected. The GPS took about 30 seconds to fix, and that was after I found a clearing where there was no tree branch overhang. I usually start my runs with a short walk followed by a slow jog for a quarter mile where I will then stop and strech for a bit before I start the bulk of my run. I did not stop the timer because I was more interested in the distance I covered and my current pace, so I didn't care that the timer was still moving (Starting a timed run is how the process works. You start the timer with the GPS active and it measures distance, pace, and time elapsed). What I noticed after I began running again at a fairly fast speed - what I thought was approximately a 7.5 min/mile pace, was that the pace it was... 3/5 GDB (Louisiana) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

The watch fit well and is a little bulky, but that is to be expected. The GPS took about 30 seconds to fix, and that was after I found a clearing where there was no tree branch overhang. I usually start my runs with a short walk followed by a slow jog for a quarter mile where I will then stop and strech for a bit before I start the bulk of my run. I did not stop the timer because I was more interested in the distance I covered and my current pace, so I didn't care that the timer was still moving (Starting a timed run is how the process works. You start the timer with the GPS active and it measures distance, pace, and time elapsed).

    Simple GPS Watch

    This is my 3rd GPS watch. The first 2 were Garmin and Motorola. Garmin was getting old and could not get satellite fix reliably, while the Motorola was full featured but recently it has been recording my runs as multisport much to my annoyance. I switched to this watch thinking less features may mean less possible points of failure.I like the simplicity of this watch. While on the run, tells you your time, distance covered and (almost) current pace. There are options to view other data but usually the default is good enough for me. After your run, you will then be able to see a whole load of other data points such as average pace and lap times. The waterproofing gives me peace of mind when the weather gets wet.The bulk is not too bad really, it's not much bigger than most GPS watches out there. It looks and feels so regular that I wear even when I am not running.I wish I could upload my runs to track them. Right now I just have to record my times... 4/5 Wee Meng Low "Meng" (Asia) - See all my reviews, December 2, 2012
