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

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.

    Holds up well

    I was issued this watch by the USMC in July, 2006 (watch built in April, 2006) so I've had it for 8 years now. Since then, I have taken this watch to 5 continents, multiple tours in 2 combat zones and put it through hell in training and operations. This watch has held up better than any I have ever owned, including Timex digital watches, Citizens, Rolexes, Bulova's and Wegner's (the Swiss Army guys). Because I got it for free, I felt no obligation to take care of it or baby it. Without a doubt this is the most durable timepiece I have seen, and I see a lot of different watches get put through the grinder in my community. Salt water, altitude, cold weather, dirt, dust, sand, mud….. you name it. Wipe it clean and keep on moving. I haven't had it serviced yet (I should, I know) and it seems to be ticking along just fine.I only have two dings on this watch that have brought me down to 4 stars (I'd give it 4.5 if I could) after 8 years.

    Excellent Watch

    0 5/5 Randoodle - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194006 Swiss Made Military Diver's Automatic Watch with Tritium (Watch) I've been eyeing this watch for a little bit now. I finally ponied up the $$ for it. It is a little smaller than I'm used to but I've already gotten acclimated to the size. A very heavy watch with excellent build quality. I work in an aerospace machine shop so I know about high quality and tight tolerances. This watch has both. It is definitely an understated watch that will only catch the eye of like minded individuals who value the same type of watch. It is definitely expensive but I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I also bought the stainless steel bracelet and swapped out the rubber straps. Not necessary but I prefer it and think it changes the presence of the watch. I like it a lot and can see why these watches are so coveted. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2012

    Great watch

    As a first responder, I experienced the battery in my watch fail while out on a call, so, lesson learned, I started searching for a rugged mechanical watch at or under $1,000. After lots of internet research I narrowed the field to Marathon, Victorinox, and Hamilton. Although ultimately it was a tough call between Victorinox and Marathon, I chose Marathon 80% on price point, and 20% on aesthetics - I just liked the Marathon looks a little better. I have no regrets. For my smallish wrist, this watch sit nicely - not too big, not too small. The dial is easy to read at a glance, including the second hand sweep. As my eyes get older, those watches with a tiny sub-dial for seconds don't work for me. I like the second hand sweep, and protection around the screw-down crown, and the military time numbers printed on the face of the dial. The elapsed time ring is crisp with no play between clicks, unlike some more expensive watches I've read complaints about. I've had the watch about a... 5/5 Michael J.

    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.

    0 5/5 Stephen (MN) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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. As usual, Amazon comes through with great delivery time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 30, 2014

    Nice watch at a good price

    I have been wearing a Luminox "navy seal" watch with stainless body and black rubber band for about ten years and the brightness has faded a little. I was looking for a replacement watch that also had tritium tubes for night visibility. There are a lot more choices now than there were ten years ago. I kept coming back to this Marathon watch for it's simplicity and appealing style. I don't like the blue, orange, or red dials and faces from Luminox and many other newer watches. I also do not like the trend to huge watches that you are always aware you are lugging around. I read some poor reviews on the Smith & Wesson so I did not go there. The Marathon reminds me most of my original Luminox, and therefore there went I.I could not be happier. The watch arrived as expected in a brown cardboard box.

    Good Watch

    0 5/5 concept3 (Mclean, Virginia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194013 Swiss Made Military Navigator Watch with Date and Tritium (Watch) If you buy this watch, you probably know what you're getting yourself into. Marathon is not a brand one "stumbles upon". The watch itself is packaged in a small cardboard box, which I enjoyed. The tritium lighting is as expected, not SuperLuminova bright, but lasting. The 12 o'clock marker has an orange tube while the rest are green, a nice touch I think.I was not expecting to have to cut the nylon to size, but I greatly enjoyed the process using a soldering iron, a flame, and sandpaper to get it as smooth as possible. The watch seems very durable so far, and I expect to continue buying from this company as the tritium wears out.Edit:Be very careful opening the caseback if you're curious to see inside it. I snapped the movement spacer and the case knife cut quite a bit into the "fibreshell". Worth the risk to me as a hobbyist, but might not be for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 10, 2012

    One of two best watches I' ve ever owned.

    I bought one of these in 2002. I have it on my wrist as I write this now. I have changed the battery twice in that time. It might have lost 4 minutes total time in the ten years I have worn it. I am using the original band. Just take it off and throw it in the wash and it cleans up fine; dries quickly, too. Over the years it has taken a beating, but has never failed. The tritium has dimmed a bit, but it is supposed to. The crystal has cracked, and it gets a bit of moisture under it from time to time but it never fails to keep me on time. It has also lost a few of numbers on the rotating bezel, but that's ok too. I bought it because of its simplicity to read, before my catarac surgery. I liked it so well, I just never stopped wearing it, even though I could wear one of my siekos or casios if I wanted to. It's a fantastic watch I can't praise enough.

    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.

    Awesome watch from a fantastic company!

    Marathon is a company with fantastic customer service and an equally as good product. This JSAR is a tank of a watch, and built to withstand the apocalypse. The bezel rotates smoothly, and functions well, the screw crown is easy to use and functional, and the overall look is certain to please, esp if paired with the matching bracelet (although the stock rubber band is nice and thick with a carbon fiber looking print, I preferred the slightly dressier look of the metal bracelet). This is certainly a large watch, but I don't find it too large, even for my 6.75" wrists. The profile does sit slightly highest than other watches, but it causes two of the watches best features to stand out - the great lookin bezel and slightly domed crystal. The face of the watch is clean, uncluttered, and easy to read. The white on black contrast looks sharp, and the luminosity is just right. It allows you to easily read the watch at night without signaling to overhead aircraft that you are walking... 5/5 DC Williams - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    BIG and unrefined, but accurate and durable

    It is HUGE, frankly much larger than I prefer. The size is the primary reason for me not awarding 5 stars. The build quality is a little rough, not quite what I see with my other timepieces but, it is the most accurate mechanical timepiece I own! I found this to be stunning, it only gains less than 30ish seconds a week, which is very good for a mechanical timepiece. Due to its size though, the stem could really stand to be re-located to the 4:00 position.So why did I purchase this Marathon? Primarily because of the day/date function and the tritium lume. While Marathon does produce smaller mechanical timepieces, they all lacked the day/date function. So, for a quick check list.....PROS:-Durable (it has taken a ton of knocks and bangs while working on projects)-Good lume-Very accurate (for a mechanical watch)-Day AND date functionsCONS:-My god is this thing HUGE!-Bezel turns a little too easily for critical... 4/5 William Gardner (Wisconsin United States) - See all my reviews, December 2, 2014

    0 4/5 lokmup2 - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON WW194001 Swiss Made Military Navigator Pilot's Watch with Tritium (Watch) I received this watch while fighting in Iraq in 2004, it is now 2013 and I have not even replaced the battery yet. I still use this watch in law enforcement. This product has been around the world many times and I have countlessly adjusted the time to where I was stationed at, and the gears are as solid as the day I was issued it; the large, sturdy band is a big plus to, I am 6'2", 250 lbs and this band will go over my cold weather clothing. It gets four stars only because this model does not have the date. Cannot go wrong with this product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 4, 2013
