Watches.......!

I like watches and have almost one for every color I wear. They are all Buffalo, columbia, swiss army or similar.

Brown, black, green, leather, and a black work out watch. I want a blue one next.

I wore my Luminox every day working on helicopters. The only thing scratchable on it was the case and it didn't get a single one. Wore it every single day for 3 years, sticking my hands in places they very well should not have gone.

Now I wear the Breitling / Omega everywhere I go. I work on the Jeep with them all the time.

I can't bring myself to even look at a Fossil anymore. I get annoyed by anything without a Sapphire crystal Watch snob status, I guess. Also one of the reasons I haven't bought a Japanese watch yet. Most of them have a crappy crystal. The few that do have a Sapphire one are either ugly or way too much for what you get

I have two citizen ecodrive watches. One plane, and one with a chronograph. I love the fact that if one runs out of battery because I don't wear it for a long time and it sits in a drawer I can recharge the battery by just sitting it under a lamp for a day. I've had these watches for 5 and 4 years respectively and don't need anything more expensive.

Scratched the crystal on my Accutron a few days ago. I guess I forgot to :knockonwood:

Good news is they are still in production!

I've become a fan of diesel watches. This one has taken a severe beating, even the finish is holding up well.

Did have a Tag F1 till it got water in it. Sold it for a few quid on ebay. Now wear a Citizen ecodrive chronograph, and a $12 watch for work so I don't wreck the Citizen.

Online factory service manuals and parts lists - http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm
If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.

Cool thread. I have a fake breitling (spelling?). Hopefully one day I can afford a real one.

I don't even own a jeep anymore
