My all round watch is a MARATHON TSAR. The best watch made for rugged-ness. I talking one tough cookie.

SCUBAWATCH.ORG MARATHON TSAR NASA ISSUE

I just wanted somthing to play with while traveling. The Suunto will be an Airstream watch only. Hopefully I will wear it more than the Marathon.

For "special" occassions I wear others.

I have found that the more functions I get on a watch, the more likely I am to get it in a condition I can't get it out of without the manual.

Several years ago I went on a trip and took two watches, in case the battery died in one. The batteries both died within a day of each other.
From then on I have bought only solar powered watches.

The last watch I bought and wear nearly all the time is a Casio that is both solar powered and syncs with the atomic clock time broadcasts.
It has simple time zone changes and automatic daylight savings time.

Regards,
Ken

We're retired too, but I cant stand being without my watch, and so it's my DW who is always asking me, since she can't stand wearing one.

Bingo! Years ago, I bought a Timex that has a kind of web fabric band with velcro fastener that I find is quite comfortable, plus it has a button that when pushed lights up the dial for night use. I'm on my third band so it seems to like me.


Any of the metal ones make my wrist turn green.

So I gave up on them for fear of turning into some kind of an alien.

I don't wear a watch. And no, I'm not retired.

I'm on my 3rd Ironman. After a few years the faces gets scratched and the bands breaks. I never take them off except when I dress up in business clothes. Thankfully that is not often since I retired. A new watch wasn't much more expensive than a new band and new battery so I just replace them every few years. I guess you could update the old Timex tag line, "takes a licking and keeps on oscillating". I have several "Sunday" watches.

My timepiece is on my Firefox browser.

Retired -- didn't wear one for 30 years -- too much handwashing in healthcare. Got out of the habit.

But what's your REI number?! Ours is 466***. Once met a woman with 12**! I think low numbers should get a discount.

The last watch I wore (and still do when I do wear a watch) is a Movado Sapphire. Mine's about 20 years old and while the exact band style is no longer available - this one is very similar. A typical (requisite?) "designer watch" for sure - LOVE it! Black on black, clean lines, simple, contemporary a classic before it's time - just like Airstreams!

Now I usually just use my iPhone...

I've had the same expensive (to me) watch for twenty five years. It does not miss a beat but....... all it does is tell time! The lost opportunity cost of the purchase price over twenty five years makes me want to gag!!!! I know hindsight is 20/20!

That always drives me a little batty in northern Arizona: The state does not do daylight savings, but the Navajo reservation does. (Or is it the other way around?) I just give up and look at the sky.

Yeah, alot of my family lives in AZ...I never know when it's too early or too late to call! I know they don't do the daylight savings - so the reservation must...
