no self respecting adult should own a cheap little plastic thing with a battery...

unless its a remote control or keeps the wife happy...

Do you have a cell phone? You could just look at that.

I have a Casio with barometer, really nice but batteries get pricey unless gotten on ebay. The Citizen Eco I have is probably the best I've ever had, only has to be in room light for a while, have kept it in a drawer for a while and was still doing fine, no batteries.
I have a pre moonwalk speedmaster which is still doing fine, also a very early seamaster, but those are awfully pricey now, after all, for the price of a new speedmaster you can get at least a couple of good bamboo rods, several really good graphite rods, or a nice trip fishing, good chunk toward a boat, a really fine shotgun or two, all a matter of priorities.

I am hardly on this site anymore (sad reflection of my life). Funny to see a thread I created bumped by the man from Austria...

So which watch did you get? How's it held up?

Citizen WR 100. It has been great! Just a scratch on the lens, but I always been the hell out of my watches, and I have no idea why.

Don't wear while playing soccer, or you might lose a lot of skin on your other wrist! Lesson learned (just pick up soccer so I didn't think a big deal)....

Watch collecting has been a hobby for a few years now, mostly "affordable" dive watches. Perfect for fishing and everyday wear.
Here is one of my favorite, first 4 pics are from last night's outing.

Solid stainless steel bracelet with extension comes handy...

Tritium is good for up to 25 years so it's perfect at night. The darker it gets around the better it works.

Versatile with other straps as well...
