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.

The Marathon Watch

Creator: Lawrence K. Laswell | Naval battles - 2014-02-04

The Marathon Watch pits treachery, deceit, and betrayal against the military traditions of duty, honor, and loyalty.

About this book
Not a bedtime read - you won't turn off the light until you have finished! - Islander I could almost feel the thunderous power of the steam turbines coming out of my Kindle.- Peter D. Woodward An excellent book. A switchback story, lots of plot twists. One of those difficult to put down reads. - Elleson More I can still smell bearing-burnt oil from the engine room, and taste salt water on my lips. Without a doubt Laswell s dramatic closing scene is one of the most powerful I have experienced in a very long time. Michael Carrier A book for fans of Clancy, Follett, Reeman, and Poyer. The Marathon Watch pits treachery, deceit, and betrayal against naval traditions of duty, honor, and loyalty. At the center of this struggle is the oldest US naval destroyer, the USS Farnley. The Chief of Naval operations steps in to rescue the Farnley and bring an unscrupulous admiral to justice, but disaster strikes. Guided by the canons of tradition, the Farnley's courageous captain and crew disobey the admiral's orders. In a life-or-death struggle, the Farnley sails in harm's way to save the life of a single man and the future of the US Navy. If not for the battery life of my iPad, I would have finished this book in one long sitting. Julia Moran Martz The author . . . creates a real authenticity to the writing, reminiscent of Douglas Reeman and David Poyer. - An Amazon Reader It was great to read a book able to make the traditions and culture of the US Navy come to life and have meaning. - Andrea Luhman"

    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.

    OK watch but the band absorbs sweat and then stinks

    3/5 William A. Seidemann (Phoenix, AZ, USA) - See all my reviews, September 17, 2015

    Good, Lightweight Military Field Watch

    I bought this because of my interest in military watches. There is a real nod to tradition here, because in a sea of humongous modern-day watches, this watch is on the small side, 34mm in diameter with a 16mm wide strap, which harkens back to watches of the WWII and post-war era. This watch seems to work on my wrist because of the relative thickness of the case and the narrowness of the strap, which help make the case seem bigger. In any case, I find this watch more wearable than the similarly-sized Rothco Vietnam era watch (see my review), which I wound up giving to my wife. I love the sage green coloring (also available in black) and the Maraglo luminous dial. As with many military watches, the crystal is acrylic rather than hardened mineral glass. This is somewhat controversial, because acrylic picks up scratches more readily, but acrylic will not shatter like glass; that is the point. The watch is very lightweight due to the fibershell case and nylon strap. Marathon has a high... 5/5 Matt S. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    MiniTSAR is an excellent watch

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194027 Swiss Made Military Issue Milspec Diver's Quartz Medium Watch with Tritium Illumination (Watch) I'm very happy with this watch. If you're looking for a good "dive" watch Marathon is a great choice, giving you great quality for the price and a watch with some heritage behind it. Was unsure about the rubber strap, but it has grown on me and is very nice. The tritium is also very clear in the dark. Don't let the low customer reviews on here sway you because they are just people that are complaining about the size, which has nothing to do with the quality of the watch itself. Yes it is small but the specs are clear on Marathon's website as far as the bezel diameter and dimensions. I have a small wrist which is why the smaller size works so well for me. It doesn't take much to hold a ruler up to your wrist to get a rough idea of how big it's going to be. The photos on the page are also accurate (the miniTSAR is the only diver without the water resistance level on the face of the watch). Overall, the watch is A+ and I commend Marathon for making an excellent product. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 11, 2015

    Really cool piece, just too small for my taste

    Ok so I'm no noob in the watch arena. I've owned Omega, Seiko, Luminox, Casio, Etc... I did my homework and knew this would be a smaller dive watch. I just didn't think it would be so small on my 6 3/4 inch wrist. I was very careful looking at pics to be sure I was looking at the medium. The medium is easily identified because the date window eliminates minute markers 22 and 23. The pics of this watch on wrists really make it look bigger. They must be of guys with thinner wrists. I will say if you have small wrists and hands, this would be a great watch for you! The quality is pretty good, as it should be for a piece in this price range. The movement had some play in it while setting, as most do. The only watch I've owned with no play was an Omega Seamaster automatic. The markings on the face and bezel are aligned perfectly. The second hand was also aligned perfectly with the minute markers on the face. A+! The crown and bezel are very good with smooth, positive feel.

    This is a decent watch marred by a couple design features. I use this watch for running. Here's what I like and don't like about it.Likes:1. It's light and fits my wrist well.2. It's easy to set up and operate. Now that Timex has integrated the stopwatch start and stop functions into one button, I am much less likely to push the wrong button when I stop during a run.3.

    Good.. not great. Worth the money though.

    I bought this watch for my wife for the easy-to-read aspect, but I neglected to research all of the functions (or lack thereof). It's not the watches fault and I'm not going to rate it down based on that.. but there are some areas it could improve in.You really can't beat the price on this watch and it does wear pretty comfortably. One thing to note is that it does NOT have a countdown or interval timer and all you really get out of this watch is the time (and a secondary time). Of course it has a stopwatch but there is really nothing fancy about it. I also find the contrast of the background to the digital display to be a little lacking. The big face of the watch and the bigger numbers, along with good contrast should all support an easy-to-read feel.. but I find that having the darker contrast makes seeing the numbers a little more difficult and I find myself staring at it a little longer than a quick glance.

    A true diver's watch for those wanting to make a statement

    First and foremost, this is a BIG watch. The 46mm diameter gives it definite wrist presence, but the most noticeable features are that it is 17mm thick and has a lug-to-lug measurement of 55mm. It's not for those with small wrists or anyone who hates something with heft. If you get the metal bracelet, it's even heavier. The brushed finish is simple but functional and has a beautifully-detailed crown that screws-down and pops out cleanly. Other so-called "dive watches" often have a very janky crown that's clearly just been repurposed from a dress watch -- but not this one. The crown was slimmed down after customer feedback, but I feel it could be improved further. Depending on the size of your wrists, the crown can dig into your arm a bit. I got used to it after a while, though I suspect using a metal bracelet would reduce this since it would give me a more custom fit (it also won't matter if you wear this on your left hand).

    Great Looking with Questionable Quality

    3/5 Trace (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194018 JSAR Swiss Made Military Issue Jumbo Diver's LGP Watch with MaraGlo Illumination (Watch) The watch looks great but it's quality concerns me. The first watch I was sent had a dead battery. Marathon replaced the watch and sent me a free band to make up for the issue, which I appreciated. My battery just died (2.5 years old) and the watch store that was going to replace it asked me if anybody had been in the watch or opened it prior, to which I responded that the watch came straight from the factory and I had never opened the case. Long story short, the crown and shaft / stem was broken. I hadn't noticed and I'm not sure how something like that would break on a fairly new watch ... In any case, the US based Marathon repair company is charging $75 to repair the issue, $15 for shipping and $45 to replace the battery ... $135 total. Sometimes things break, but given that this watch is only 2.5 years old and built like a tank on the outside, my expectation was that it would not fail so quickly.

    it was way too small it looked like a women's watch

    4/5 Steven - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194018 JSAR Swiss Made Military Issue Jumbo Diver's LGP Watch with MaraGlo Illumination (Watch) I returned the Marathon US Government automatic...it was way too small it looked like a women's watch. So I ordered this watch in it's place, I wanted to have a Marathon. The problem with this watch is that it is huge. I guess Marathon does not have a medium dive watch just tiny or enormous are the choices. I am keeping the watch but I have a really big wrist. A downfall is that it comes with the same length band that the US Gov. auto comes with big watch small band...I had to put a Nato strap I had on hand on it so that it would fit. Very rugged but really large I would think about it if you have an average size wrist. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 5, 2015

    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. First, the power reserve is only... 4/5 Ryan Thomas - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON WW194006 GSAR Swiss Made Military Issue Diver's Automatic Watch US Government Dial with Tritium (Watch) 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.

    Everything you could want in a watch.

    5/5 Chris Deer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194006 GSAR Swiss Made Military Issue Diver's Automatic Watch US Government Dial with Tritium (Watch) This is a tough, workhorse of a watch that still catches the eye. The styling is extremely visually pleasing, and I have no doubts or concerns about the quality. This is by far the brightest tritium watch I have owned. All adds up to one hell of a watch., June 10, 2015

    Excellent Watch

    5/5 Randoodle - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON WW194006 GSAR Swiss Made Military Issue Diver's Automatic Watch US Government Dial 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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2012
