Yep, it is funny. I looked at the Bulovas but they...and now, quite a few Citizens...have gotten too blingy for my taste. And I do realize that my watches may be a bit to blingy (or pedestrian) for a true watch aficionado who appreciates "complications" over fashion. One watch that does have me thinking hard hasn't been release yet. I'm looking forward to the prospect of Omega releasing a 50th anniversary Apollo edition as they did for the 40th. I figure competition will fierce and nightmarish and the price tag will be out of reach but still...

I would actually really like to be a watch geek, but the fact of the matter is is that I write for a living and they drive me nuts when I'm typing, so I'm always taking my watch off.

After having my Tag stolen right off my desk in my office when I slipped out to take a leak, I decided I'm not spending that kind of money anymore.

That said, I'm really happy with this 88 Rue Du Rhone. It's rock solid.

I bought a Laco "Used Look" about two years ago, and it quenched my thirst for watches for... well, two years lol. Great German watch at a reasonable price.

It's a mechanical with the glass back. Great watch. But I am thinking I would like something a bit thinner that a shirt sleeve will slide over more easily.

Being I really like my Laco - maybe another would be fun. It's not mechanical, but it's under 10mm thick, and has a rubber strap that's rated for 5 ATM. I figure that'll keep me from having to take it off every morning when I shower which will be nice considering I have worn dive watches pretty much my whole life and find taking it off to shower a pain in the ...



That and having dual time zones along with a date is desirable for me as well. Smaller face though coming in at 39mm - good for work I figure.

One wrist, too many watches, broke down and bought a new winder...Arrgggghhhhh!
Didn't want cheap Chinese, learned that lesson years ago. Specifically, wanted a winder using the MUCH better and quieter Maibuchi motors. Ended up after much research with this Benson 8.13.B (8 winder). Same motors used by Wolf, etc.
Been a few months, so far so good.
Lastly, the cuffs are spring loaded for tight fit of watch and LOCK into position. Can't fall out during winding. The best part is they all start and stop in the same position! Yes, I'm a watch geek/WIS. LOL.

Very nice wonder. Can you set each slot to wind independly either CW or CCW? Or one direction at a time?

THANKS!
Absolutely. Everything is customizable for each of the 8 winders. From number of turns to CW/CCW, all turn at same time or separate, etc.
