wow 28 replies in 24 hours, nice.
A couple of random questions/comments.
1) The casio with atomic time keeping, can you still set the watch manually?
While the atomic time keeping and solar powered are nice I am not sure I want that much technology attached to my wrist. The higher the technology content the greater the chance it will stop working.
2) The luminox watches are spectacular, but pricey, are they battery driven?
Rather than motion driven like some of the seiko's/citizen watches, again less technology is some times better than more
3) I like the look of the new timex ironman's nice big and simple display, the molded watch band concerns me but as was posted the 10$ replacement is nice.
4) At this point I have no criteria beyond simply designed, accurate and well built. I have no interest in buying a watch only to replace it in a couple of years.

Keep the posts coming,
Thanks John


edit: smackdaddy I had a mickey mouse watch once, I still kick myself for loosing it.
