    Too many watches, not enough bikes. This is definitely one of my faves, though:

    Any online retailers anyone recommends? Or does everyone here purchase through brick and mortar retailers or friends?

    Still looking into watches off and on (sorta like I did with road bikes for years). I'm working and about to commit to buying a Citizen Eco-Drive military style watch as an everyday watch. Something I can ride with. Considering this watch as well. I like its old dive watch style (I look at it and think of 70's/80's dive watch).

    Just two stock photos, but to give an idea of what I'm looking at. Also considering this Bertucci since I can get it cheap. Probably try to find it a leather strap and use it as a dressier watch. I have heard it scratches fairly easy - well - the reviews on this watch are inconsistent in this matter. The first watch can be purchased in a one hour chronograph, but I'm not sure I need that feature, and I don't want the face to get cluttered up. Having the bezel of the dive watch to keep track of when I need to leave or arrive places would be really nice.

    Just got one of these. Seiko Kinetic. Love it so far. I am getting rid of my automatics because the keep dying on me. I like the Kinetic because it has the pendulum and clear back but it also has a rechargable power source. Right now it can go about 4 months without charging.

    I've always liked Hamilton for a mid range watch although the one I own is more of a dress watch than this example. I've never actually tried their sports watches as I already prefer my Wittnauer divers watch for riding and work (use the rotating bezel for timing machining cycles). So I don't really have use for a chrono myself.

    Well, I finally came across a BM6400-00E watch by Citizen. This is one of my favorite watches of all time. Super lume, a good amount of numbers around the side (as opposed to just having the "12" and many dashes), all in a slim package. Everything I wanted in a watch. Brand new they were right on the bubble of my budget. Used they are within my budget with the proper amount of patience and luck.

    Finally got it. I have only been able to wear it twice out of the past four or five days, but it is a great watch! I don't wear it to work since I lift stuff at my work which has actually broken some of my past watches. I finally got to see the lume the other night and it drew some attention from the people I was around. Lovely watch. I'd like to pick up the Citizen BM8180 and a Citizen dive watch (BN0100-00E or BN0085-01E). I'm leaning more towards the BM8180 as a more everyday watch. I'd pick up a BN0100-00E if I found a good used one or a new one on closeout though.

    I snapped a picture with my phone, but it's nothing special. It deserves a more proper shot. Just figured I'd share since I saw this thread had been bumped.

    A tachymeter scale is a scale sometimes inscribed around the rim of an analog watch. It can be used to compute a speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed. The spacings between the marks on the tachymeter dial are therefore proportional to 1/t where t is the elapsed time.

    That watch that used to be an SKX007 looks good with your mods. You have replaced almost every part that shows.

    That's kind of tacky.

    It's a tachymeter. You use the second hand to time a known distance of one mile. Wherever the second hand is when you hit the one mile mark is your speed. So if it takes you 30 seconds to go one mile then you're traveling at 120 mph.

    I really like the look of this Citizen EcoDrive, model CA0255-01E. Of course, Citizen stopped making this
    very nice looking Chronograph, and none of the "regular outlets" have any left. Any fellow watch fans
    know if anyplace might have some "new old stock"? I like the idea of the Ecodrive. This is a fine looking
    chronograph, not "overcooked" as so many are now. Oh yeah,,,,, nice, big numbers, good for us aging
    boomers.

    I'm having a 60's Omega Speedmaster overhauled and I saw the shop had a very nice selection of Citizen Ecodrive. When I go back to check on my watch I'll see if they have that, by chance.

    Here is my Omega, pre-moon watch. Maybe 1967 or so...

    I appreciate that. It seems that watch fans, like cyclists, tend to "have each others' backs".

    Here is a website I came across recently: Watches you Can afford.

    This site focuses on the more common brands, that most of can afford, as opposed to the very wonderful, but very expensive
    swiss makers. It's worth checking out.
