    My favourite is the Citizen Eco Drive Chrono in the middle

    Watch porn. That's "watch" the noun not "watch" the verb. ;)

    And enjoy the wonderful background stories (entirely fictional of course) about some of the watches.

    Mechanical watch & reasonably priced.
    You can have one or the other :)
    I tried this a few years back. You're not allowed battery powered watches in underground mines with a potential for explosive gases.

    Closest I came was russian made watches for their military. But they were still hella-expensive and kept terrible time.

    The Citizen Promaster Sensor is one of the best watches you can find!

    These were around back in the 1990's and were the first of the first! Solid and brilliant inlayed with gold. ( Not too big on your wrist...just nice)

    Rare to find now. (Original release)

    Sold back in 1995 for about 6 - 700 AUD.

    Sorry mate, Pierre Cardin is an immediate put off. But maybe only to those who lived it in the 80's. Kind of like Ken Done tea towels. :D

    Thanks for posting.
