My wife has bought me a few different Citizen Chronograph watches over the last 7 years. Best watches I have ever had and more than I would spend on a watch, but the quality of them is good.

The best deal around in a real swiss watch.....

Luminox - Tritium Navy Seal = without question.

I've had just about every Seiko, Citizen, Date Just, Sub-Mariner (rolex)...

The Luminox is the best and most enjoyed watch I've owned.

The price is usually under 200 for the Seal issue and the tritium gas tubes are amazing.....illumination for 20 yrs.

Please don't cheap out on a good watch............

Thank a Seal

I don't get the eco drive. It seems like an inelegant solution to put a solar panel in your watch.

I wear a HighGear Axis watch.

It's relatively cheap, has a large dial, a good backlight, barometer, altimeter, thermometer, compass, alarm, and stopwatch.

casio gshock with solar and atomic time keeping. many years old never needed battery or time setting. the crystal looks brand new even if the rest of the watch does not. water proof, 4 alarms, indigo light, light can be set to come on when your turn your wrist to look at if you want.

i could go on

Hello,

I am a watch guy (as well as a sailing guy and car guy). After losing an expensive Omega overboard (I smacked it against a stanchion when I was grinding a winch, long story, don't ask) I only wear cheap watches when I sail. What hurts is that I sort of know where the watch went overboard. It's in 15-30 ft of water (depending on tide, etc.) and I think constantly about the possibility of retrieving it.
