I got it as a birthday gift, i personally love it because of how it looks and i won't need to check my phone once in a while. I needed a watch for school anyway. So i guess i chose a good watch that can possibly last longer than i expect :D

And I think if I'm to buy another watch any time soon it'd be either one I've had my eyes on for some time or a nice automatic with Swiss movement.

 

Yes - a co-worker ordered one of those through Amazon and arranged to return it within minutes of opening the box - because the "second marks" weren't even spaced correctly on the dial.  The marks would come into alignment with the second hand for only about 1/3 of the dial.  Yuck!

But it's a beautiful watch!  Enjoy it!  

 

I'm somewhat like you, in terms of self-discipline (only barely), in that I've managed to stop "collecting" watches - with five that are working fine, I've got four more than I "need."

 

:D

Thank you, Luckily that watch was the last in stock there in the store. Well i'm not surprised about head-fiers spends lots on stuff so... :tongue:

Fitted a new silicon strap to my C11 Titanium Elite. Really happy with the look and comfort over the stock strap...

Collecting watches is the other hobby I have and like audio equipment, is destructive on your savings. rolleyes.gif

I've thinned the herd a while back, but still have a Bulova Seaking as backup, a 60's Omega Seamaster Geneve and a 70's Tissot Seastar that I wear daily among others that I have stored away. Lots of 'sea' in this era.

Nothing comes close to a mechanical watch IMHO. Amazingly enough, I haven't serviced any of these watches in years, but still keep time accurate to the minute each day, unless I forget to wind them over the weekend. biggrin.gif

May post images later.
