Speaking of watches, what do you wear on a daily basis?...

Before I retired, I wore my Rolex Thunderbird (Turn-O-Graph) in stainless and gold...basically a DateJust with a different bezel...now regulated to those occasions when I HAVE to dress up. Now retired, I wear a Seiko quartz when working outside and nothing while in the shop.

1. Seiko solar - it's as "green" as it get, with solar rechargeable battery

Periodically changing the battery is expensive and inconvenient. I think I've had this over a year, and it is very accurate as well.

2. I bought a Seiko kinetic diver four years ago. ...

The last time I set it was on Oct 1, 2016. Today I checked and it is running four seconds slow.

5. Seiko makes great watches...

and were underrated for many years. My first good watch was a Seiko chronograph that I received as a high school graduation present...and that was around 50 years ago. Never been cleaned or repaired and still works and keeps great time to this day.

6. I have a watch we backed on Kickstarter

and i like it a lot it was not too expensive, keeps great time, and looks great. I have trouble finding watches to keep time on me, as my husband can attest, I have a magnetism problem if i hold a compass north always points at me, ...i can sometimes make them spin.

The watch is an Elliot Havok, I have the Midnight
