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

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

Publisher: Mad Norwegian Pr

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.

    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. Maybe the model with the bezel ring...but definitely with the date display.

    Terrible workmanship

    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.

    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, 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.

But every time, after wearing it for a day or two, I remember why I sold or returned the last one, it does not fit me. Even though I have large wrists, my wrists are rounded. I think this would fit a person with wide, flat wrists, even if they are not large wrists. The build quality is better than most at this price point. It is VERY easy to read.

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.

    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?)

    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.

    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.
