    What's on your wrist today?

    Anyone else a watch enthusiast? What's on your wrist today?

    What's on your wrist today?-20191206_092637.jpg

    Today it's the Citizen NY0040-17L (catchy name, right?) on a dark blue perlon strap from Crown and Buckle.

    The NY0040 has an interesting history. From 1997-2007 it was standard issue gear for the Marina Militare, or the Italian Navy. It's powered by a Miyota automatic movement and the case is pretty robust. It's rumored that the Italian Navy tested it to 500M! The unique 12 o'clock index also earned it the nickname "underpants dial."
    The cake is a lie.

    I just broke one of my favorite watches earlier this week. I wear Citizen and Fossil mostly. I need to go to the Fossil store and see what it is gonna take to get repaired. Im very OCD about needing to know what time it is and have always worn a watch.

    Oof. At first I thought it was just the crystal that was cracked, but now I see the day indicator hand and some other stuff broke off the dial too. That watch took a good knock!

    Remnants of Poison Oak. The damned stuff is cleverly disguised as a common stick this time of year! I got into it a few days before Thanksgiving. I knew it but thought it was dormant. I forgot to wash right after my ride and had a couple of beers instead. Turns out the oils are still just as potent.

    Nothing. I have never worn a watch. Unless you are in a casino there are clocks everywhere these days.

    went to fossil an hour ago. they are going to send it out for a repair estimate. if it's not repairable or too much to fix they keep it and I get 50% of a new watch.

    I just got this new watch for my upcoming birthday. My parents gave it to me but they told me to pick it. It's an Orient:

    Seiko Kinetic Sportura Direct Drive in black with a power reserve complication and date. Hacking crown. I love everything about the watch except its quartz movement. The direct drive charges a battery rather than a spring.

    I'm probably going to get an Orient Ray with the smoother movement as a Christmas present to myself.

    I'm as much a watch geek as a bike geek.

    Today I'm wearing my Revue Thommen Airspeed Automatic. I bought it in '98. I haven't worn it in many years because it doesn't always keep time, like gaining 10 min/day. And it costs too much to fix. But I tried it out yesterday and it's keeping good time right now. I went through this once before about 9 years ago. It kept good time for 2 months and then it started running fast again. So here's the photo:

    I just spent a couple of days wearing the silver dial one of these to test it before returning it to its owner. Not something I normally do but it had multiple issues that needed sorting out and I wanted to be sure it was ready.

    Goody hair tie. This one is an "ouchless" model.

    I usually take my hair down when I get out of the gym.

    Working as a chef I was always hyper aware of time but never wore a watch. I sometimes wear a Fitbit now but I never miss it if I forget it. I have a Citizen stowed away with my cufflinks somewhere but haven't scene them in months.

    I've had my $30 Timex watch for a few years, so I guess I'm getting my money out of it. Usually pretty good, I just have to move the hand forward a few minutes every couple of months or so. The battery died about a month ago, and I haven't changed it yet. Never been a connoisseur of watches I guess.

    So what are the practical benefits of buying something like a $200+ Fossil watch? Are they that much more reliable? Or is it just a style thing?

    Timex is good value, I rock a casio most of the time (like a step down from timex) nice watches are neat to appreciate and there is some tech that adds to the cost (different types of solar power/automatic/self winding/different time keeping tech).

    I have a citizen eco drive (solar power, sorta) that's probably as old as me and never have to worry about the battery, which is nice because I almost never wear it. But changing the battery in a cheap watch is fine too, it is mostly a style thing when you start spending more, I would never wear my casio when in a suit for example.

    Then there's sports/gps/smart watches but that's kind of a different thing.

    Depends on your definition of reliable. A $20 Casio will tell you the time, and so will a $200 Citizen, and so will a $10,000 Rolex. A higher price doesn't always mean more accurate, either. But, as we know with bikes, where's the fun in logic?

    Generally, a watch around $200 will get you something that is durable, probably waterproof, looks nice, and has either an accurate quartz movement, or a decent entry level mechanical movement. The case will be nicely machined and finished, too. Watches in this price range usually save a bit of cost on things like the bracelet, which at this pricepoint, will likely be meh. Materials will also be cheaper, such as stainless steel, plastic, and mineral crystal.

    Once you step up to the $500-$1000 range, you'll see nicer materials, like saphire crystal, solid machined bracelets, and maybe even fancy dial materials such as meteorite.

    It's really up to you to decide if you think some of those features or materials are worth it or not.

    I have a Timex Ironman watch that I bought in '92. It's what Indiglo was a new technolgy. I still wear the watch too. It's my "beater" watch that I wear when I go bike riding.

    Thanks for the perspective. Most people I know aren't that into things like watches. Also people in my profession (ecologist) don't usually pride themselves on looking fancy. Actually most of the time if you needed to look "nice" that means you wore any button up shirt that isn't one of the seven flannel shirts or Columbia brand quick-dry shirts you wear every week, otherwise one of the maybe two suits you actually own.

    The only other watch I have is a non-functioning pocket watch that my grandpa had.

    I have well over 15 flannel shirts in my closet. I wear one every single day to work. And out for dinner as well. Which is where I am going right now, donning a Dakine flannel shirt.

    While there is a style element to being a watch wanker, it's really more akin to being a gear junkie. A mechanical watch is a marvel of precision manufacturing and/or craftsmanship.

    You don't NEED it any more than you need those carbon bars, cranks, electronic derailleur and $1500 fork.

    Just to quickly explain, I am not a watch collector. I own this one, an Apple Watch and an inexpensive but old and limited edition Timex/Troy Lee joint venture. I bought the Rolex to commemorate a once in a lifetime career milestone, and I wanted something I could pass down to my daughter.

    Apart from a bit of real estate, that watch is the only thing I own that has appreciated in value. It is worth WAY more today used, than what I paid for it in 2000.

    Nothing wrong with quality.....No reason to have to defend spending money on it.
    People who spend money on quality promote more quality.

    That's actually pretty cool. And I'm not here trying to say anyone shouldn't have a nice watch or whatever. Just kinda getting the vibe for why people like them and what's to like about them.

    I wear an Apple watch daily, and have one of these for when I want to be "off the grid" so to speak. I wore it on a trip to Jamaica for example.

    I remember being so excited the first time I got a Timex.
    “Takes a Licking and Keeps on Ticking” was their pitch back in the day.
    They’d get litigated if they used that today.
    Just the name brings back many fond memories.
    I bought the Black Monster after a bad run of Casios.
    Seems like a good amount of practical quality. I’m probably too hard on them to risk wearing a Rolex anywhere but a funeral or wedding.

    Nothing beats a fine watch....

    Yep, remember it well. This one will glow in the dark too, "indiglo."

    I don't think Timex, as a brand, gets the recognition that it truly deserves. IMO, they are as much of a horological icon as Rolex, if not more so. Everyone has probably had a Timex watch at some point in their life.

    There's been a trend in the watch world to re-issue classic styles with new materials and updated movements. Timex recently released the Waterbury in stainless steel with an automatic movement, a signed crown, and a nice butterfly clasp bracelet. If I can find one on sale at some point, I might not be able to resist!

    This thread has some nice watches! If you don't own a watch, or you already shared the one on your wrist, what are you thinking about picking up next?

    I wish I still had my Freestyle watch from the early 90s. I had it mainly for telling time out in the surf, it was easy to stay out there too long and get cooked by the sun, also need to know what time it was so I could make it to school in the morning after dawn patrol.

    Looks like you can get them on amazon for $60.

    My last several watches have been Citizen Eco Drives. My problem is that I forget to take them off while I'm working on cars, or welding. Welding really messes with the crystal.

    Another point on the Monster. As Kubike pointed out they have a mineral glass crystal.
    I am hard on such things but this one has proven to be incredibly scratch resistant. That is a BIG plus for me.
    The watch I have is a Gen 2 from Japan.
    Best to avoid other mfg. origin.
    The Gen 2 is self winding but can be hand wound as well.
    I think they run around $230 now.
    Like I say, best value I ever owned in a watch, speaking from the low end....

    I have this watch I got a few weeks ago. It's just a $22 cheapy from Amazon. But I got it for free for writing a review on it for the seller. I've got a number of freebies like that. And I actually like this watch. It has a Miyota quartz movement in it and it's quite accurate too:


    You see the crack in the case? After I posted my review showing the crack they sent me another one for free. It comes in a wood box too:

    Love watches for some reason.



    What's on your wrist today?-img_20191211_004535766.jpg

    Like a book -

    -Knockoff late 90s Omega Seamaster
    -Mid/late 1990s Trek bicycle watch.
    -100% wooden case/band my wife gave me for Christmas last year.
    -Citizen Paradigm. Wife gave it to me after our first soon was born.

    -Gen 1 Citizen Promaster Skyhawk. Got it when I started taking flying lessons
    -Gen 3 Citizen Promaster Skyhawk. 30th birthday present from my wife. My daily wearer for work.
    -Gen 4 Citizen Promaster Skyhawk. Got it to replace my Gen 3 as a nicer casual.
    -Citizen Signature Courageous. Got it as my fancy pants watch on a cruise in 2017.

    Awesome Skyhawk collection! And cool Trek watch! My first mountain bike was a blue, steel framed Trek with no suspension. I have a lot of fond memories of that bike. I doubt you'll ever see a bike co. make a watch like that again.

    Sorry for the crap pic. The lens on my cell phone camera is broken right now.

    I have a small collection (3 Vostok Amphibians, 3 vintage Olma, a vintage Luch 2209, a Luch one hander (that I modified with a domed arcylic crystal and remove the chrome plating to make brass), a vintage Oris 5 O'clock, a vintage Smith's Empire, a 1924 Elgin tank, a modern Orient and a couple random quartz).

    good lord we are a bunch of hairy mother effers....

    My dad swears by his G shock. however he did have a very long day once. He had a digital G shock that stopped. battery didn't die, the clock stopped. it was 1:43 for several hours.

    here is my backup watch till my busted watch gets fixed or replaced. Was a gift from work.

    I have a company meeting this afternoon, and I have to give a presentation. Oh joy. I don't really have a dress watch (yet) so I went with my chronograph on a milanese strap. Classy enough for business casual.

    An inexpensive Casio G-Shock. It keeps perfect time due to the automatic syncing to the atomic clock thingie somewhere, and the face is a solar cell that keeps the battery charged. The alarm is too quiet though.
    It meets my needs. When you retire, you need a watch that displays the day of the week and the date. Otherwise you lose track. Wednesday or Saturday -- they are all the same anymore.

    I buy cheap watches and spend my money on bike stuff or fishing gear.
    Do not take anything I post seriously. I don't.

    The main driver for me is the no battery thing. For some reason mechanical function has always appealed to me.
    I used the $20 dollar Casios for decades.
    Crystal would become fogged with wear and battery would die about once a year.
    Then I started looking for a watch that was more in line quality wise with what I liked in other daily use items.
    Watches, cameras, straight razors, knives, hand tools, firearms all have great appeal when they function well over time.
    I used to go through $3.00 sunglasses and stick pens. Then bought a pair of Raybans I’ve used for 16 years and a fountain pen I’ve used for 12 years.
    I have my first 35 mm camera that is near 40 years old and still takes excellent photographs.

    Practical quality has never disappointed.

I remember how funky they would get sweating in the summer but most of the time I didn’t wear one when not in school.

    Funny, I was scrolling through the Rolex site just to pick out one I really liked.
    Cost as much as I spent building my first house.

    They still make some nice automatic watches, just not for the US market. You'll have to do some digging on the interwebz to find them. I got mine very gently used on ebay.

    I blame my dad. He still wears a 20+ year old Citizen dive watch and he bought me my first Citizen dive watch several years ago.
    The cake is a lie.

    Today on my wrist is my Casio Twin Sensor. It's about 8 yrs old. I recently polished out the crystal too. It was scratched up enough that I stopped wearing it for a while. Now the crystal is clear and clean again. And I just got a new strap for it. Those rubber straps suck. They tend to break where you bend them getting into the buckle. So I got a nice silicone strap with a clasp from Amazon:

    “They tend to break where you bend them getting into the buckle.“

    I remember that as well now that you mention it.
    That was a problem for them over 30 years ago as well.

    This is the one I wore for many years....
    Used to replace them when they died.

    Today it's the Citizen NY0040-17L (catchy name, right?) on a dark blue perlon strap from Crown and Buckle.

    The NY0040 has an interesting history. From 1997-2007 it was standard issue gear for the Marina Militare, or the Italian Navy. It's powered by a Miyota automatic movement and the case is pretty robust. It's rumored that the Italian Navy tested it to 500M! The unique 12 o'clock index also earned it the nickname "underpants dial."

    Cool watch and nice strap!!!

    I guess one could describe me as a reformed watch enthusiast. Years ago, I bought and sold many different watches for my personal use including:

    Rolex Submariner, Datejust, and GMT

    Omega Speedmaster Pro (Moon Watch)

    Breitling Avenger Sea Wolf

    All five of these watches broke in some very expensive way... I lost interest in the watch hobby and settled with four watches. My daily drivers are a G-Shock GD-350 and a Suunto Traverse Alpha. My “nice” watches are:

    Omega Speedmaster Michael Schumacher "The Legend":
    What's on your wrist today?-359d9ce9-0b11-494e-81f9-5bf84e68462c_1_201_a.jpg


    Marathon GSAR "US Government". Hands down this is my favorite watch I have ever owned. I get more complements and questions about it than I did any of the "halo" watches I previously owned. Its not fancy, in fact it is somewhat of a tool watch if you will. It is by far the most durable watch I have ever owed. I love it:

    Haven’t worn a watch in several years, but my GF got me this for Xmas:



    They claim the wood features are from reclaimed bourbon barrels. If that’s the case it would be neat if they captured the penetration line somehow. Nice watch nonetheless.

    Cant wear watches at work so it is sitting on my desk but with the exception of being here (yeah, stuck at work today. Like 5 people in the plant), My Fenix 5x Sapphire is pretty much always on my wrist.

    I got a new Apple Watch, Series 5. My daughter gave me a first gen one way back when, when they originally came out. There have been significant improvements in the last several years.

    This thing is a lot of fun, especially since I am plugged deep into the world of Apple (AirPod Pros, stereo HomePods, Apple Music, Apple TV, MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, and multiple iPhones, among other things).

    No more tethering to my phone, which was the case with the Gen 1. I can now Straaavaaa tetherless. Not that I have ever been into Strava, but maybe I should be.Maybe this will be the year I get with the rest of the western civilized world and start strava-ing.

    That's why I hate riding road. I have been hit by a car twice. both times were hit and runs. they never stopped. one was a lifted dodge truck. destroyed my bike and the side of my face. I would commute to work more but I would have to leave at 4am and its 35 miles each way through areas where wild animals gather and I have had issues with that in the past year. not something I want to deal with....

    back to watches. I got my fossil back yesterday. looks great!

    Reclaimed bourbon barrels? That's what scotch is for! Cool watch, though. It's always more interesting when a watch has a backstory, or history attached to it.

    Tool watches are the best. Don't get me wrong, I have a puddle of drool under my feet when I check out a Grand Seiko, or a Panerai, et. al. There's just something about an hard working, daily beater, though.

    So it only tells time accurately twice per day, or do you have to hold your arm a certain azimuth like a sundial?

    I've always loved the unique style of Panerai! They are generally a bit big for me, but now they have a "women's" Luminor Due in 38mm! Clearly with the lilac and baby blue strap options they are marketing this to women. But, some of use dudes have dainty, delicate wrists too!
