I only mentioned that Seiko 5 because it is so similar to that Citizen. I wonder if you would be happy with that Citizen considering what you are really looking for. All I can do is look at more watches on Amazon. If I come across anything close I will pass the link to you. :tu:

Not my photo, but this is the latest purchase...and the package is on its way. Going to see which comes sooner, the Casio or the Kingwear smart watch.

I was more attracted to the world globe.

My watch winder case came in today. Guess I can eventually see myself filling up this one with automatics. I did put the 5 I currently have in there.

Looks like I should go visit the downtown Walmart more often. The main store hardly carries anything of interest in watches. There were a few more models I have my eye on at this downtown Walmart. Unfortunately, no G-Shocks from Casio...however I did find these two nice looking Casio watches on sale.

I have a G-Shock on its way that is in red. I saw this and thought I should get it as well. I only paid 15 dollars for it. It is a Casio W-214HC-4AVCF.





This Casio was also on sale, for 30 dollars. They had a regular black model, but this gold and black was nicer looking. The model on this one is AEQ-200W-9AVCF.



Still waiting for that Android wear smart watch.

Today, I received my watch case press which came with a few watch tools. I still have no clue what the small vial of grease...if that is what it is...is used for. Is it used to lubricate band pins and barrels?  :think:

Oddly enough, the press came under the 35 dollar minimum for free shipping. I do not belong to Amazon Prime. I perused the other items the seller sold and found something I will find useful. A Jewelers ring sizing kit. That pushed me up a little over the minimum...which meant I got that for half price off considering how much they wanted to charge me for shipping.

Very nice kit, Chako! :like:

The grease is for rejuvenating the o-rings in watch cases when you put them back together. Remove the o-ring and put a light coat of the grease on the o-ring(along with dry towel cleaning the gasket channel). Wipe off excess and the seal will be better than using dry gaskets.  :)
If you are a diver, the sealibg grease will prevent salt water from rotting the seal.

Congrats on all the watch tools. The last tools you may need are confidence and patience. :tu:

I re-visited the downtown Walmart. I found out that they are trying to get out of selling watches. I picked up another 3 different models that caught my eye.







I got this one because it is a wave ceptor model.


The tough solar was a bit more expensive than the others. I do like the green on it.


Last but not least, a nice dress watch.

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!

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. :)

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.
