Since I work frequently with electricity and machinery (some of it moving) a watch or any kind of ring, bracelet, etc. is a no no and could shorten my lifespan if you get my drift.

I've been looking pretty heavily into another Breitling, or maybe a LumiNox. I like the features of the LumiNox watches, but I trush the Breitling name better to keep good time. I know that the Breitling will be more expensive, but I'll probably end up getting one anyway.


Now I just need to find some good places to shop!

Our local Costco carries a really nice Tag for about $600.

I have an older model Tag Heuer aquaracer that I won in a drawing. I believe it retails around a thousand bucks. Normally, I would never pay that for a watch, but since it was free............ And besides, it is a really nice watch.

My daily watch is a Movado and I break out the Fendi on the weekends.

If you like that one, but want the no battery deal, check out this one by Casio. It's the Casio Pro Trek. Runs off of solar power from any light source, and has all of the functions as the one above, or close. If not this one, check out some of the G-Shocks by Casio. I don't own any, but am looking to buy this one soon for the compass feature.



These are the ones I have


My gadgety watch that runs off the same solar concept as the Casio above. A little more expensive, but still just the same thing but fancier. I don't like the band at all, it's not very giving, and hard on the wrist.


My off work watch, my longest lasting watch, my most toughest watch, and my most recommended watch. The Freestyle Mako. Had this thing for 5-6 years now, and no problems. Prior to this I went through 5-6 Timex's in a matter of 4-5 years. Essentially I went through one or so a year, untill I bought this one. It's though as nails and takes a beating.




I also own a couple Seikos, one kinetic, one automatic, one battery powered, and a couple other low budget watches. All of the Seiko's run great and would recommend any of these as well. But if your looking at buying something 1K or less than your way out of my league. But good luck anyways.

93Renny, great pics. I found the Citizen here...
http://www.princetonwatches.com/shop/JR3060-59F.asp

The Luminox I like...
http://www.knifecore.com/store/produ...cat=297&page=1

And I like pretty much all of the Automatic Breitlings. I've been looking into Tissot... they seem to have quite a few good ones out there.

I think I'm now going to have to decide if I want a crazy awesome one like the Casio, or something nice that will still take abuse for daily wear.

...Glad to see that this is still the last safe Forum in the world....free from bashing, flaming, and useless posts.... "sigh" Anyways, I have a few too many watches, somewhere around 12 which let me tell you gets expensive on the battery side of things. I have to say though, for a good, everyday look nice but easy on the wallet watch you cant go wrong with the Fossils. They even have the automatic ones now that are kinetic so you never need a battery. Other than that though, depending on what you are doing I think you need different watches. I have a Suunto that I wear whenever I am doing anything that I will get dirty/wet, and then my Citizen for work and the others here and there. My dream is still a rolex, but I am not quite at that level of play yet... wear what looks good for you and is durable enough to handle what you put it through...

This is my everyday watch, when I wear one. I got it in Germany at the naval base in Kiel in 2000.


My nice one is a Movado (pretty old) that was my wife's grandfather's watch. Of course, it is a wind-up, being how old it is.
