I bought a new watch today

I have not worn a regular watch for about 10 years. I just relied on cellphones. Today I bought a regular watch. It feels different to have a heavy watch on my arm, but I like it too.

I picked it out. Deb said 'Happy Valentine's Day'

We'll see if I can get used to having this big honking thing attached to my arm, and if I can keep from trashing it as I walk next to a wall.

Scotty

It is not some $1000 treasure like some of you guys have.

Timex, like my first watch when I was a little boy

Model T2G501, part of their "T series" -- around a hundred bucks, and I found mine marked down from that.

Understated, basic, heavy, and enough watch to see if I really want to get back into wearing a watch.

Thanks

Like the watch. I've owned lots of Timex watches, they always seemed more refined to me, than the Casios. Some of the analog ones have lights when you push on the crown, very cool!!

My old Timex from around 1998 did that, it would glow indiglo blue, same color my dashboard is now

This one does not light up, but hands do glow, with old-school atomic power

Even though I'm a cheap bastard at heart and would probably not pay big bucks for a watch these days (I did when I was younger), I will enjoy this forum vicariously

Timex's are pretty tough. I've had an Ironman for a little over a year and it has yet to fail me. My dad has one that he got more than a decade ago thats still kicking.

So that doesnt use spring bars? But fixed bars? cool. Let us know how the compass holds up.
