    Though I'm wearing my Apple Watch a ton these days, I came across this sweet German GMT with a sandblasted stainless case, wide-open face, internal bezel, 12.5mm thickness and dual crowns, all of which pretty make it my Kryptonite.

    I may or may not have ordered it today. :)

    Obviously, not my pic.

    This one is beginning to show its age. 8 years old now. Its grandfather is still keeping great time. Maybe time to get a replacement soon. IMG_20201024_223304858.jpg

    Sorry to disappoint you but it’s not among my favorite. The old lady bought it for me and I wear it to please her.

    Now we’re talking about a proper watch company.

    I did construction work most of my life and wore a Timex every day. I always replaced the watchband with a Twist-O-Flex so that the watch was easy to take off and put back on or push up the forearm to get it out of the way. I also like an analog dial with a white face and black numerals and I like having a button that lights up the dial so you can see it at night which is something Timex eventually offered. Other than that I never needed any other extras.

    I never saw the need for a more expensive watch and I've never liked the looks of dive watches and I have problems with my ears and can't go further underwater than about ten feet so I've never had a need for a dive watch and to me they look gaudy and pretentious and if I were going to get an expensive watch I'd like something with a much more simple design.

    And I also like the twist-O-flex type of watch band much better than a strap that buckles or any other type of band. I like being able to slip the watch on an off without a lot of fiddling around.

    I stopped wearing a watch years ago when I started carrying a cell phone.

    1. I grew up with windup watches, before the digital age, before even a date provision was put in watches. I was regularly wearing such until about 20 years ago.
    2. When I discovered battery watches, I switched.
    3. My favorite watches are two gold retirement, battery driven watches with inscriptions for which I gave new leather bands. In addition I also wear a simple Skagen watch.

    I have three sets of shtf watches or rough condition watches:
    1. Timex rubber band sports watches;
    2. low end (up to $20) low end Seiko watches .
    3. Swiss Army watches.

    Today, most young people either wear the Apple watches or use a cell phone.

    What watch did I wear today? A gold Hamilton retirement watch with a new leather band.
