My trusty G-Shock:



Hopefully a Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk AT will join it soon.

(Edit - found a pic of my watch rather than a generic catalogue pic).

You still got yours then? smile

I bought this for myself about 12 years ago funnily enough. After about 6 or so years I started to notice the capacitor was on the way out and it was losing charge overnight and I got bored of resetting the time so shoved it in a drawer and forgot about it.

I started to get into watches a bit in the last few years and decided to dig this out to be the start of a collection and got it serviced (at an exorbitant cost) and now it's back in use as my daily watch. It's also just had go to back to Seiko after I dropped it from head height onto a tiled floor.. all that happened was the second hand detached itself from the main shaft and was spinning freely.. quickly repaired though now and all in working order. So all in all, this watch owes me quite a few hundred quid but I doubt I'll ever part with it, as it's a bit uncommon and still looks quite good!

The only thing letting it down is the condition of the face / crystal - lots of scratches, etc. I noticed a chap on eBay does a refurb job for £22 specifically for this watch so I think that's on the cards next to freshen it up smile

Link below for the faceplate refurb if you're interested..

It has been very wet here in Poole today, so I used that as a reason to wear this new piece smile

Creation, as ever, are the cheapest place by a mile for these though if you want to try before you buy have a look in Ernest Jones, quite a few of their stores stock them - their price is about double though!

My lovely Seamaster Chronometer, bought on a whim in 2000, still going strong. Had the poor girl serviced last month out of a sense of extreme guilt as you're supposed to do it every five years!

Luckily the service tech said the internals were still as good as new.

I've never known a mechanical movement keep time like it, loses no more than 2 or 3 minutes a month, which I think is pretty good, don't you?

Now looking a little 'patinated', but not bad for a watch I wear every single day - that's 8,030 times I've put on and removed this watch, with about 48,180 hours of use on my wrist! I'm impressed, anyway.

Can't beleive how much these are new now, retailing at £2,500 - I paid £1100 for it 11 years ago. So possibly the only consumer purchase thing I've ever bought which hasn't depreciated like ice cream in the sun, lol!

Snap!

Had mine for Xmas, it replaces another G-Shock that didn't miss a beat in 15years smile



And for when a G-Shock just won't do...

This was an impulse purchase in December. It's a little bling but is very comfortable to wear. My usual daily is a monaco.
