Got my first watch recently, a Seiko 5. Replaced the strap with a leather & fabric one as well.

It's funny how Seikos are so popular on all the computing related forums I use, yet most average Joes see them as "just seikos" :lol:

Now that's a nice freakin' watch.

I got my hands on a vintage Tissot, still looking for the right strap for it.

Thanks! The fade in the dial looks great on that one. Were you thinking of a leather strap or something else?

About a year ago, I got one of these 1977 Birks LED (NOS!):

I always heard LED was terrible with battery life, but I still haven't had to change the battery. It's light and comfortable and great for night visibility. One push shows time, second push shows day/date, third push shows seconds (that stay on without holding). Setting conveniently starts with date, so you can quickly change date after a non-31 day month.

Some new watches. My favorite by far is the little Citizen (34mm, late '70s early '80s).

I remember that Citizen. I thought it was mid-late 80's.

There's a reference to it here ( https://www.ebid.net/uk/for-sale/1977-c ... 246635.htm ) from 1977. Mine is model 50-7016.

Yes, I see. They must have kept making that style for years - or they had a huge backlog that they still had years later. I remember seeing those in Canadian department stores in the mid-late 80's. I remember because I liked that style and was going to get one at the time. (but with gold/champagne or blue dial)

There's a blue dialed Cryston available locally that I've been eyeing for a few days, I think I'm gonna grab that one as well.

Nice one. But 15$ + 14$ for shipping to UK is too much (
P.S.
Why no one with fintess tracker here ?

1977 Birks LED
I love this watch. I've got a $5000 Grand Seiko ("Grando Seiko" as the Japanese say) and a bunch of nice watches, but this 1977 LED watch is the one I always put on when I need to see the time after dark. It's very comfortable, light, accurate (far more accurate than mechanical watches) and easy to see in the dark without being blinded. I still haven't had to replace the battery this year.

It's amazing (and disturbing) that this is still really "state of the art" in time telling technology - over 40 years later.

I got an LCD watch in about 1978/79 exactly because of the LEDs' reputation for battery drain. What I ended up with was something that was almost impossible to make out in any light and a nickel allergy. :|

Same here - except for the nickel allergy. I got my first LCD watch in 1979 (...as was the style at the time). The light was only bright enough to show the last digit.

Still, it was a major improvement over my previous watch - a cheap mechanical Timex piece of crap. It kept stopping, so I sent it back twice to be repaired and when I finally got it, the time went backwards.

Classy. I think I'll get one of these, a wide collared open shirt, a chest wig and gold chain, then strut up to a hot babe and see if it works.

The case of my retro (not vintage) Casio broke. Shoddy chromed plastic instead of metal. :(
I hate plastic cased watches. I remember when they came out around 1983/84 (in Canada - possibly a few years earlier elsewhere). After that, most digital watch makers switched to plastic cases and by the late 80's they were all plastic. (very similar timeline to "the great beigening" and cheapening of computers and keyboards) I actually bought a chromed-plastic calculator watch in '85 and the "chrome" quickly flaked off, making me hate plastic watches from then on.

For years now, I've been searching for a nice metal cased old style digital LCD - but they're all plastic ("resin") case. There are a couple metal cased ones being released now, but they're ridiculously priced (and mostly ugly G-Shock style). How did metal get so expensive?

I decided to skip the modern junk. I just bought a NEW old stock 1976 LCD watch - in 2021!

Several years ago I loved my watch very much and never parted with it. But after the advent of fitness trackers and smartwatches, conventional wristwatches have lost some of their relevance. Modern people prefer to receive more information and I am no exception from this list.
