    Recoil from 12g

    I am looking for some watch advise. I am an olympic trap shooter, i shoot around 300 targets a week on average. The recoil definitely plays havoc on my watches. Can any of you suggest a rep that has a good shock absorption system. I was thinking about the RM 055 but nobody can tell me if the gen shock system is present in the rep. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Also electronic devices are not allowed in olympic trap so its mechanical movements only. Cheers

      Why dont you just wear to your range, a (gen, not rep) G-Shock which is built to take various shocks?

          Any Rep with a Gen Swiss ETA or clone ETA 2824/2836 mechanical automatic movement with the proper 'Incabloc' , Novodiac, or Etachoc shock absorber should work just fine. Trap loads do not generate heavy recoil to upset the movement. Even the occasional buck shot or slug loads would not jar the movement. Actually, any ETA movement on any watch, Gen or Rep would do just fine.
