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.
