Doing some research on the new watches and noted that the tough solar is a model STLS110H-1B.

I am having way too much fun buying cheap Casio watches on sale. I found this one for 20 dollars and thought it would go well with another recent purchase due to the colour scheme. The newer watch on the right is a AE1000W-1A3V

Awesome Casios, Chako# :drool:
It is a slippery slope for sure. :facepalm:
I did manage to slow down my Casio-crutch at six of them, but the appeal is understandable. :)

Now you need an orange $40 Chrono. :D

Also came in today, a Kingwear KW88 PRO android smart watch.



I wish I had more time to play with this one but I just came from spending the after-work hours in emergency.

I hope you're OK, Chako. Take care and be careful!
You'll get to the smart watch when you can.  :popcorn:

2 latest additions. I really like that Casio that I have in gold and black, so I bought the other for a good friend. The Timex Expedition Shock Resist XL is my latest collection addition.

How about this Seiko 5 automatic?   :pok:

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 read lots of posts here about how amazing Seiko 5 is. I bought one some time ago. After about a little over one year, just when the warranty expired, I noticed it got a few minutes ahead everyday. After some time, it was getting a couple of hours ahead everyday! I took it to the store where I bought it and the repair would cost €80+/-. Since I payed €110 for it, I just put it away in a drawer.

Apparently, some of the machines produced in a certain time interval had a problem. The balance mechanism would break and you'd need to replace almost the entire mechanism.

I awlready had Timex in my "don't buy, advice against" list. Now, Seiko 5 is in that list, too.

Like anything, there will be duds. But, with that said, the Seiko '5' is among the most reliable budget automatics. I wouldn't condemn them, because of one example. :tu:
I have several of them and all of them keep good time, even the ones that haven't been serviced since they were made 20-30 years ago. :)

Sorry to hear that. I must say, I have had no issues with any Timex I have owned.

I just revived two of my older Citizen watches with new batteries. Both purchased in the late 90s, Surprisingly enough, I saw the right hand watch in a small local jewelry store in their discount section, brand spanking new. When I told them I had one of those and they haven't made that model in over a decade...the man quietly told me he had that watch for probably a little longer. He seemed rather eager to unload it on me for some reason. :rofl:

The lumen on that dual display watch is excellent. The Chrono...not so much.

The watch is of good quality from what I can see. Love the hidden LED function. You can access the time, date, and alarm functions. From what I gather, the red button functions much like a call back. It will show whatever you last accessed information wise. Kinda neat, and I love the high visibility watch face. Those markings make reading the hour super easy.

Just be mindful, there is also a Shark Army series of watches that are not from the same company...on Amazon.

Here is their website...

Might be time to resurrect my Citizen Eco-Drive watches. It will cost me 55 dollars to replace their solar charged batteries per watch. Time to probably get my SkyHawks up and running again.

Might want to shop around. I found a new capacitor cell for my Eco for $27 shipped on eBay. :)

Might be good to ask the jeweler how much to change the cells if you provide them.
But, then again, they are definitely worth $55ea to get running. You might be able to get them started back up by leaving them in a window with sunlight as well.

Tried that already. No amount of light will get them started. The store sends them off to Citizen...so the price is reasonable.
