You shouldn't be disappointed.I was wearing this new smart watch and it scared the daylights out of me. It buzzed. When I looked on the screen, it told me my cell phone was updating a few apps. Kinda cool considering the cell phone is in the other room charging in its own docking station.
Well I finally pulled the trigger on a watch winder case. I hope it works for me. It will do 4 automatics and have room for 6 more watches. I am also intrigued with a few cheap Chinese automatics off of Amazon. I have stayed away so far...but who knows in the future. So far very happy with this cheap Chinese smart watch. Going to wear it today to work and see how that goes.
I will keep that in mind. Still a bit curious though.A local pawn shop has a Citizen Eco drive Pro diver 300m for 200 bucks. Only issue with it is it is an eco drive. I have nothing but bad luck with those. Case is a bit scuffed at that...and happy I didn't go for it as I can see some places retailing it for a little over 200 US online.
Latest addition, a Bulova.
How about this Seiko 5 automatic? https://www.amazon.ca/Seiko-Mens-SNK805-Automatic-Watch/dp/B000LTAY1U/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1538457267&sr=8-3&keywords=Seiko+5+watch&dpID=51bd2MB3PyL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
I hear you. Frankly if it where me, I would go with an automatic any day over an EcoDrive. On the plus side, any watch with the crown located at the 4 position will be very comfortable to wear compared to one at the 3 position.
JR,I think you're after something kind of special. Please correct me if that is an incorrect assumption, as the rest of this post is only relevant if that is the case.You have a bunch of nice watches, and personally, I don't think the Eco-Drive is going to be a treasured watch for you, because of your nice collection of watches.Just my opinion. Who knows? It may end up being your favorite watch, but it could also end up just hanging on the watch-tree you have. If you only had a couple of cheap watches, then the Eco-Drive would be awesome, but that is not the case.Just wanted to throw that out there. And lastly, maybe relax on the parameters for a new watch and just look for one that "strikes a chord with you." I can tell this is nagging at you a bit, since you have been looking at getting a new watch for a while now and I am not sure there is anything new to add to recommendation now. Maybe create a new thread dedicated to finding a new watch as well? That would definitely increase exposure and might draw some fresh input on the topic. The question isn't getting much exposure right now, because the questions are being asked in collection threads.
That’s a nice watch is it very expensive JR
