    I'm currently enjoying my first run through of Stargate and would like to make my own contribution.

    Jonas Quinn's civilian watch in SG1 season 6 is an Omega Speedmaster X-33. It has a digital-analogue display.

    I realize I'm over a decade late, but this is fantastic work. I was actually looking for the model of General G. Hammond's watch in 7.17 (Heroes: Part I) when I came across this thread. It was so awesome I was compelled to create an account and thank anyone out there who may have contributed to this! Still anxiously awaiting an announcement of a re-boot.

    Well its now 2016 and its been over 5 years and I have gotten a lot watches over the years and keep finding them good homes for people who want the EXACT look for costuming... If anyone ever needs one I am still here! http://www.stitchsloft.com/?s=Watch&s_cs=true

    Yes I purchased two of the Propworx watches from the show, they said they had been tagged by the studio as "Beckett", but I know they were in fact Sheppard's. My guess at the end the day they got thrown in bag and were never used again! They went for less than even a new watch would cost and were both screen used!

    On another note I have been collecting some of the other watches that are hard to find and selling them for the serious costumers. We also have "for real" screen accurate patches! Check out what we have so far! www.stitchsloft.com

    Yes it well could be since I noticed that PropWerx routinely misidentified witch watches belonged to which characters on the show. That would be a shame if nobody purchased the very watch that Don S. Davis wore in all his years on SG-1

    It appears to be a Suunto X6M. It could be a Suunto G6 but that is a golfing watch whereas the X6M is a hiking, mountaineering oriented watch like the Vector.

    McKay wore the SUUNTO X6HRM

    This one has really got me stumped. The case looks very much like an Omega Seamaster 300, but the dial and bezel look different from any example I've found.
    I am guessing the same as this one...

    John Sheppard: Suunto Vector Foliage Green
    Rodney McKay: Suunto Vector Khaki
    Teyla Emmagan: Casio G-Shock G-600-1AV
    Elizabeth Weir: ?
    Carson Beckett: Suunto Vector Khaki
    Aiden Ford: Probably Suunto X9(--out of production)

    ============================================
    Pretty nice list, but Sheppard's watch in Season 1-3 was not called Foliage Green. The NEW green is called Foliage, the older forest green was different and I am trying to find out the correct name for it if anyone knows.

    OLD "forest?" Green

    NEW "Foliage Green"

    Also didn't see any for Dr. Kellar?

    Some of these watches are being auctioned off by Propworx right now!

    NOTE: It appears that Shepard's Foliage Green Suunto Vector is being advertised as a Samantha Carter watch.

    Thanks Alan;
    It took a bunch of time. I have all episodes of SG-1 and SGA on a hard drive connected to my DVD player, so I can fast-forward search from one to the next to the next etc., looking for close-ups that include a wrist-watch.

    From this I learned that Dr. Beckett/Paul McGillian and Rodney McKay/David Hewlitt are most likely left-handed because they often bring their left hand up close to their faces while gesturing.

    Paul McGillian's sleeve seemed to almost always be pulled up enough to expose his Suunto Vector.

    On the other hand, Joe Flannigan hardly ever had his left wrist in frame. Suunto couldn't have liked him very much.

    It also get easier once you realize that the watches supplied by the props dept. were either Casio G-Shocks or Suuntos. So This Website was a big help.

    If you're too old and tired for sports, it's kind of like a "Where's Waldo" game, figuring out what kind of watch somebody's wearing.
