Here is my humble watch collection for a Time Lord badge quest. Nothing fancy, just a watch here and there I bought at different stages in life. From left to right:
- Seiko SNA613: my first Seiko, bought during college year. This is more of a bracelet type, as the trap does not lay flat. Very unique alien-ish trap and bezel design.
- Seiko 5M62-0BT0: my first Seiko kinetic watch. Simply and clean white face. The battery does not hold charge well though.
- Seiko SRG001: my most "expensive" kinetic one to date for a sum of $270 at BJ's. Beautiful piece, hold charge very well. The battery can be charged by turning the crown, hence "direct drive". This is my everyday watch nowadays, alternating with the G-sock (#5)
- Casio WL-100: this one has a special place in my heart. It was my watch during my high school year, also the last watch I brought with me when immigrating to the US. Like all old-school Casio that get worn daily in all weather condition, the resin bands eventually got hardened and cracked. I just changed its battery and bands last year after 14 years of sitting idle (the battery had been out as long). The only regret is, I could not find the exact band style for it.
- Casio G-2500: my first G-Shock, bought over 10 years ago at JC Penney. All paints are not lost. I kind of like its all black appearance now.
- Casio GA-150A-2ACR: true to be told, this one is brand new. An impulse buy for its metallic blue color. I cannot see myself wear it. I probably will pass it to a relative, who is in the army.
- Casio PAW1300-1V: first Pathfinder. I like its big face yet simple style.
Do not mind about the time not in sync. LOL.
I also have this big-ass Invicta 4842 Reserve 1959 Russian Diver. Another impulse purchase at Costco for less than $100. I am not into big and thick watches, but I do like the color scheme, the mechanical look in this watch. Quite a tone-down from the in-your-face Invicta watches are known for. Heavy and a PITA to change the battery. Did I say it is Swiss-made?
. Picture from the internet, not mine.
Last one is the Victorinox 241681 Maverick. Still in box
