    I would like to have a Doxa dive watch someday, but have a hard time justifying the money. My $30 Armitron works great.

    When my grandfather died, we found about 5 broken Timex's, all the same model as the one he wore.

    Casio Pathfinder. I like my watches to be a practical device.

    I kinda wish I was still into wearing a watch. They look nice but hate things on my wrists. I don't even wear my wedding band anymore. And yes my wife does know about it and I convinced her I wasn't cheating. I just told her that I didn't need a chunk of metal to remind me of my vows. That was a fight i'm glad that reason won out on...:cool:

    OT, but I don't mind admitting that the chunk of metal being there has been of great assistance in reminding me a few times.

    My girlfriend got me this one for my birthday a couple weeks ago. I like it quite a bit. Lume is great (and blue) second time zone, slide rule for tip calculations, etc, screw down crown (wr to 200m) and it's powered by light (no need for batteries or winders). Love the way it looks too.

    It's honestly a little too big/chunky for me.

    When everyone else was strapping G-Shock I was wearing a 30 lap Ironman like a BOSS.

    Wow... that sucks!

    It looks like the plastic became brittle over time, or maybe they were made of a different composition back then.

    I make sure mine stays nourished by routinely saturating with CLP. :supergrin:

    Nice watch
    I was going to buy my son a Tag for his college graduation gift, but the tranny went out on his truck so the $ went for that.

    A Citizen Eco-drive with titanium case and band and sapphire crystal. The sapphire is totally scratch resistant. I've banged it into countless objects and it has no visible damage. The titanium is not scratch resistant but it's lightweight and easy to refinish once in a while.

    Its battery is recharged by light so it'll go 20 years with zero maintenance but it's recommended to replace the seal every 2-3 years to guarantee waterproofness.

    It's pretty accurate even for a quartz timepiece, running fast about 4-5 seconds per month.
