    I've always been a mechanical/auto watch guy - bought sold and traded my fair share over the years and finally settled on a small handful that I rotate - a Seiko SKX175 which is just a classic and rugged design, a SAK 9G-600 auto chrono which is a terrific daily wear watch, and a gold Hamilton tank that was a graduation present from my late father.

    However, I picked up one of these looking for something in between the dive watch and the auto chrono and I have had difficulty taking it off. There is a lot of convenience in putting it on every day and knowing that it will be running and that it will be accurate - and I happen to like the way it looks despite the busy appearance (not to mention use most of the features). The solar/atomic feature is so great I've added two Casio GShock beaters with the same technology for weekend/gym wear.

    This is a stock photo but it is a great watch, wears small despite the case size and it is very light and comfortable.

    Nice pocket watch! In my opinion, there is just something classy about a pocket watch, which wrist watches cannot reproduce.

    Got the 007 fixed, all it took was a slight adjustment of some spring or other, and now it keeps perfect time! Also swapped the bracelet for a Super Oyster II one. Much more solid, and the opening mechanism is great.

    I got so tired of the oversized watches of the past 30 years that I ordered an authentic military watch.

    This is a better picture at the site where I bought it:


    These are the particulars of it, which basically says it's a 1942 re-issue:

    Default Traser

    This week, a Traser Code Blue. The lightest watch I have -- carbon fiber case. It's an amazing watch. Tight to 100m, and the Ronda movement is probably my favorite quartz movement... terribly accurate.

    If I had a watch like that, I would wear it all the time.

    Thank you. I am very lucky to have her. The back is engraved with "With All My Heart 08-30-08" (the date we were wed)
