Re: Watch or time piece?

Oh, someone had to bring up GPS. Now we can argue the difference between "GPS system time" and other kinds of timekeeping.(G)

Re: Watch or time piece?

I have owned and used this Seiko self winding dive watch for 37 years. It keeps going strong. Sent it to the factory one time for calibration and cleaning. Click image for larger version

Re: Watch or time piece?

Murphy's Law dictates that the less expensive your watch, the less likely that it will break, you will lose it or it will get damaged by water.

People are not impressed by others expensive watches...they just look ostentatious to others.

Life begins where land ends.

Re: Watch or time piece?

I have a $30 Timex quartz that 10+ years old that I wear when working. It's been wet, covered with oil, dropped, stepped on, etc. replaced the band 3 times.

I have $100 stainless steel Timex I wear at work. Kids gave me a gold Citizen I wear when I dress up.

All are simple, big number dial with night light. No extras. I carry iphone for all the extra stuff
