    I absolutely love this watch. It's been on my wrist for over a year now, and its performance has been flawless.

    I prefer it over the Sub and Sub Date--I like to have the date function but not the cyclops. The SD is also much beefier than the Subs, and much less common--I've yet to see another on someones wrist, but I see Subs (and Sub counterfeits) all the time.

    Quartz is fine, but 200 little Swiss parts performing an orchestra of activity in the space of a postage stamp while withstanding the depths of the ocean or the recoil of firearms is absolutely amazing. I also like the fact that the watch is powered by me.

    Citizen Navihawk.

    I don't wear a wedding ring while on active flying status. Wife #2 knew this. This substituted nicely, and does a good job of darned near everything while I'm moving through the 24 time zones:

    I've had a Seiko Kinetic for about 5 years and like it a lot; it keeps perfect time and never needs batteries.

    also, my parents got me the Tag Heuer Indy 500 watch for Christmas. Not only does it look very cool, the stopwatch is a pretty neat feature to have.

    At the moment the one I slept in, a AP Royal Oak Offshore Chrono which repalced the DJ I wore to work yesterday. Today I'm going to wear a 5512 w/NATO strap and tonight when I get home it's going to be a 16520 'cause I have laundry to do.

    matt33 - nice watch, that is a lot like my Seiko titanium.

    Right now I'm wearing my dad's old Gucci ... not sure of the model but the back says 301M. We got it in the Gucci store in Rome, Italy (the one near the Spanish steps) so we know it's not a fake. :)

    I love watches.
    I am wearing an Ernst Benz Chronoscope right now. Its a self wind, Swiss Chronograph. The face is almost two inches across.

    I also have Omega Speedmaster, a Pro Diver Omega, a Bell & Ross Chronograph, a Ulysse Nardin, a Baum and Mercier Rivera Chronograph, and a 'few' others.

    Did I say I love watches? :)

    Today I have on a Citizen Ecodrive, Palidoro model. It's a pretty accurate watch - gains about 3 - 4 secs a month. I have several other watches WAY more expensive, but I'd definitely buy another Ecodrive. :cool:

    I have a Luminox 3101 series Navy Seals stainless steel. I like the luminous hands and numbers in low light conditions, because as a paramedic, I don't have to shine a light on it to take pulses or breath rates.

    I have a Pulsar Chronograph. I thought that having an analog stopwatch would be cool...found that I use the second hand more often than the stopwatch. It does have a date spot and that is handy for me.

    I plan on getting a Breitling Colt Automatic w/ fighter bracelet when I am finally done with my thesis.

    I know I'm digging up an old thread but I started this thread and just thought I would mention that I broke my Fossil watch that I had when I started this thread. Now I am sporting a Citizen Eco-Drive Nighthawk. Its a sweet watch so far. :D

    OK by me. I had posted to it earlier, and things have changed now for me too.

    What's on my wrist now? ARM HAIR! A TAN!!!

    I retired six months ago and the first thing I did was STOP WEARING A WATCH. Snap to, all you wage slaves... 8^)

    lpl/nc (livin' on island time now, even tho I'm stuck on the mainland)

    Rolex two-tone Datejust.

    It was a gift from my parents upon finishing grad school; I was the first to go to college in the family, much less grad school, much less first in the class, so they gave it to me as a memorial.

    I wear it out of respect for them; to be honest, I'm ashamed to wear it lest someone think I actually bought it. I have a different take on money than most -- and if it was up to me, I'd have my Timex Ironman on right now just because I don't want judgements associated with wearing a $5k watch.

    When my daughter was born, my wife got a mother's ring, and I picked out a Citizen Eco Drive stainless. I have worn it almost every day since she was born, and love it. And it means the world to me. The best $450 I have ever spent, moreso than any gun.
