    Seiko Chronograph Automatic 6139-6010 bought overseas in 1968. Had it cleaned twice, no service needed. Not worn during work as a gas turbine tech. On my wrist daily, off at night.

    Nice clean appearance and I like the lowered position for the crown. Too bad there aren't more sapphire crystals available on Seiko's.

    I have been using Seiko's Hardlex windows for years and they have not shown any scratches. I am not diving at 1000 meters, so I can see no issues with my EDC uses of Seiko watches. Not to say that I do not appreciate the nice Sapphire crystal on one of my auto Seiko's.

    It's quite simple, right click on the image and view image info to see what the dimensions are.

    Your image above is 800px × 600px which is within the rules.

    I'm pretty hard on my watches and all the Seiko's I've ever owned have scratches all over the Hardlex. My two
    sapphire crystal watches (Seiko Ti Sportura and Longines Oposition) are the only two watches I've never had scratches on, other than the Tag I lost, but it had a sapphire crystal as well. Hardlex is good and for some may never scratch, but alas, I'm too hard on them.

    Citizen skyhawk Eco-drive. I love the watch. Auto updates every night from the atomic time server, solar powered, does everything and more then I need.

    I just wished I would have waited for a sale I recently seen! Humm, oh well it's still worth it.

    Default G-Shock Gulfman..

    Hi Guys,
    I am wearing the Casio G-Shock Gulfman. This is easily the best working watch I have had. Purchased off ebay for a good price and works flawlessly. I wear it every day. No negative points. Solar powered and hard wearing!


    cheers,
    st.john

    It's funny. I was getting into watches pretty hard for a bit, but now have stopped. I am wearing a Maratac mid pilot most days, it rides on an isofrane or a Crown and Buckle Flieger strap.

    Weird. Found my EDC watch...

    Wish I was that lucky. I'm still looking for my main one. But my Citizen is doing an excellent job of tiding me over until then.

    I have a G Shock for work, it's tough, solar powered and auto updates itself each night.

    And for home wear i have a lovely Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean that I would never have owned without my dear old Grandparents. I'll keep this forever and I'm sure it will stand the test of time. Looked at loads of other premium brand watches but kept coming back to Omega for the understated looks.

    As was said earlier in the thread, watches are more addictive than flashlights!

    I don't have any pictures of my own, but I wear this: http://www.seikousa.com/products/cou..._p/snp017.html

    I wanted something with no battery replacement (kinetic charging), sapphire crystal, and perpetual calendar w/ leap year adjustments. I have worn it every day for 4 years with no problems. The crystal is still flawless, though the metal housing and band show enough scuffs and dings. This was expected though as I never take it off and have made no effort to go easy on it. I am slightly displeased with the accuracy as it goes fast about 8 seconds per month. I have to change the time twice a year for daylight saving, so I use that opportunity to re-synchronize.

    My Seiko my wife got me a few years ago. I think there is an automatic version of this watch as well, mine uses a battery. Love this watch.

    What gets the most wear is a Hamilton Khaki Air Race GMT that I got a great deal on. I love the orange, the inset 24 hour display (marked T2, it can be set to a separate time zone if desired, and the internal rotating bezel. I've had it as my EDC and used it as my dive watch for years now. I also keep a Suunto Core on hand for when I'm out in the mountains (elevation and/or barometer) and various other pieces that I just like.

    Got a new ultimate beater few days ago, Casio W-800 (tan display). Dirt-cheap, basic functions only, 100m WR, retro look... Good for cycling, hiking and everyday chores, no worries about being scratched or broken.

    My Seiko 5 Military (SNK803) settled at 3-4 secs/day after break-in. Excellent workhorse with 7s26 movement, I just love it.

    Cheers
