What’s better than a nice watch on your wrist (apart from a nice steam crave in your hand, obviously)?
I’ve got a bit of a thing for a nice watch . Unfortunately I’m not rich enough to have my ‘holy grail’ watch(es), but you don’t need a massive budget to have something you like on your wrist.
So I’ll start this off with what I think is a great looking watch, in my favourite colours. This is my beloved Seiko SRPD81K1 to which I’ve fitted a strapcode black miltat bracelet and a blue anti-reflective coated sapphire glass:
I had one similar to that with all the dials about 20 years ago, cost £140 (a fortune then, well it was for me) after owning it for less than a month I left the house to go to work with it on my wrist and the first time that day I went to check the time no watch and never to be seen again!
In the day of suits and ties at work I enjoyed a decent watch. Seiko is one of the brands that I have worn and enjoyed. Always liked a diver’s style. Kinda of a “touch of class” statement. That sense carried on until about a year ago when I just started leaving it on the end table. Now the cell phone has taken it’s place being always with me. Over time I found myself removing the watch during activities where it was cumbersome. Did enjoy wearing one for a good number of years.
Well, well, well, you have now TRIGGERED me, hehe. Kidding.
I can’t remember how many years ago I started with the Citizen PCAT Eco-Drive Chronograhps, but I never looked back. The crystal is almost indestructible and the Atomic Clock Sync, keeps my lazy ass, well, MO lazy.
I always have a watch, and I always prefer bigger, chronos. I was breaking them left and right, because they have a HARD life riding with me, and finally Citizen stepped up, and made one I couldn’t break regularly. LOL.
Ya, I am not a Rolex fan at all they are a little too flash for me but dad left it to me so I will never get rid of it nor will I wear it. The Omegas while expensive are classy looking watches without being flash as a rat with a gold tooth.
