I wear a watch on my job, the Citizen Eco Drive on the right. The Delbana is a Swiss made wind up watch.
That is a sharp looking watch Paul!I collect watches too but look for the unusual, my next one will be a Damasko. Made in Germany with an in house movement that is not just a Seagull ebauche, the ice hardened steel is pretty cool. The prices are affordable, this is one I am considering, the price is 19% less if shipped to the USA.
DC70 greenThis model can also be ordered with orange hand design: DC70 orange Chronographs with their stop-minute display from the centre. This…www.damasko-watches.com
That is when I started one again. My job had lots-o-wet for a hour or two a day. Rarely do not have a watch on these days.Haven't worn a watch since I retired 3 yrs ago.
I forgot how my old Timex expedition type watches back when I was a teenager would beep on the hour. Brings back good memories. A new watch used to be as exciting as a new smartphone is now.It seems like there are two kinds of watch people just like there are two kinds of car people. Some owners enjoy using them, looking at them, taking care of them. Others just view them as appliances that do what they are supposed to, and only when they break down do they pay attention to them. I wear this grey market Casio bought on Ebay a few years ago for fifty bucks. Like that it beeps on the hour and think the automatic time setting is pretty cool.

I like the black dial better.This old thing is in rotation as a daily wear watch. A few years ago I found an original reverse panda dial of the same vintage. The tritium lume on the hour markers had faded and I have had the dial relumed with SL C3. One of these days I will swap out the all-black dial for the reverse panda dial. In the picture of the reverse panda dial the light is not catching the edges of the subdials which are recessed just like on the all-black dial.
As do I.I like the black dial better.
Wear all of them. Dilemma solved. Except for those stares. New dilemmaI have two nice wristwatches my wife got me. But she also got me a Fitbit I feel inclined to wear because it can pick up AFib which may be an issue for me.
My Seiko and and other watch stay in a watch case.
