I stopped wear watches a few years ago. Too much bashing them cost me too much $$$.

1920 Cronos swiss guts with an emerson jewelers case. Horribly unreliable:

1928 Elgin. Extremely reliable, but needs service:

At this point I buy wal-mart Timexes and throw em in a drawer when the battery dies. $20 and they last 1-5 years.

I don't have a photo of my own watch, but this is what I use:

Got tired of changing batteries and decided I might as well get a watch that I could some day pass down to a potential son.

I now have two daughters. Figures, doesn't it? :wink:

Haven't worn a watch in eons. I use a PC all day and can see the time. My cell phone has a clock. There is a clock in my car. You can get the time on your TV. Hey! My camera gives me the time too. :D

haven’t worn a watch since I retired over 3 years ago, and I hated wearing one when I did. Every room in my house has a clock. My computer tells the time. My cameras tell the time. All my vehicles have a clock. I know when the sun sets, and that’s all I need.

However, I will post this photo of the “railroad watch” my grandfather wore when he worked for the railroads, all before I was born. My father restored the watch, and put it in a glass display case. I took these shots with a D100 and a 60mm back in 2003.

Can't go without one

I bought my first decent watch a couple years ago after years of mostly Casio.........Casio is fine but not built for long lasting performance.

I always wanted an Automatic (no batteries, no winding, no nothin'!). So I picked up a Seiko SKX173. I've also been tempted to snag a Sumo (yes I'm a watch nerd).

Here's a couple I snapped a while back.

And this one with the most current bracelet, a Watchadoo brushed solid link that replaced the Italian Rubber strap above.

You have to understand that I am very hard on watches, and this is now the second crystal I have put in this watch, and I am getting close to needing another.

I'm very happy with this one.

No need for Batteries = Solar Powered :biggrin:
No need to set it = Wave Ceptor :biggrin:
No need to watch out for it = Water resistant

..and it's got stopwatch and Alarm.

LOL! I have a Citizen Skyhawk Titanium too! Love it! Mine is slightly different though as my second hand is yellow. My crystal is also pretty scratched up but I've never bothered to get it replaced. How much does a replacement run?

Love my Skyhawk. The last time it was $65 for the crystal and $25 for the labor. Plus tax it was almost $100, but worth it. I'll wait until the water seal is compromised before I get it replaced. We used to have a Citizen Jeweler here, but he retired and closed his shop, so now I will have to send it off. I have a buddy in S.Cal. that is a Citizen Jeweler, so I might have to send it to him

thanks for the info. :cool: That's about what I thought. Yeah I'm just sorta waiting for something catastrophic to happen before I do anything. Love my Skyhawk too! It gets compliments here and there. I love the weightlessness of the Titanium design - a big difference vs the stainless steel ones. And yes I do know how to use the slide rule. :redface: Comes in handy for quick fuel mileage calculations, and converting currency on foreign travel. Wife calls me a dork, but when I'm able to instantly convert local pricing at a shop to USD with a mere glance then it's cool, LOL.

My retirement gift. Probably "gold tone" but it's nice since I was with DHS when it was begun
