  1. It's this one, but not as pristine. 12-9-6 layout compared to your 3-6-9 layout.

    IIRC Even the solar rechargeable batteries like mine uses aren't all that expensive, maybe low double digits at most. I would put in the effort to find a decent jewely store to do any work on my watch though. Any place that sells more expensive watches like the Master of G series or mid to high end men's watches should be fine.

    Nice! I like it.
    Yeah, if it is a nicer watch you are probably safer getting it done at a jewelry store. Or, you can look for what store in your area sells the brand of watch it is. Not a bad suggestion. :cool:

    I value prestige but I never got to a point with watches where there was any point so: must be digital, must be waterproof. Mustn't break. That's about it.

    If you hand me a Rolex or something I'll take it but I will sell it.

    My latest watch is a military style very rugged. My wife says I have a watch fetish. I have five watches as of right now all are waterproof (a must) some are for dress up others for work. I never don't have one on. I expect to be buried with one.

    My wife says I have a watch fetish I can’t seem to walk past a watch display case and not look at them. I have at present 8 watches. I can’t help but buy more. I posted last year I had only 5 but that number has grown by three.

    I literally would have to count the number of watches I won, mostly because I win auctions of mixed lots of watches. Very few are valuable, collectible, etc.

    My favorite EDW is a Cavalry model (I have several) from Victorinox, Wenger, & Swiss Army Brand.

    Citizen Eco-Drive is another favorite. Several are very nice ladies models, but my wife has large wrists. On some we've had links added, but several require replacing the bands/bracelets which isn't an easy task on a discontinued models. If she had the need/professional position for being seen wearing nice watches we would pursue it.

    My biggest "sleeper" scores are a Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk Black Eagle, and black face model that looks awesome but is very difficult to read.

    One these days I'm going eBay a bunch of them.
