I like Watches

I am constantly looking at watches and when the right one comes along I buy it although I sometimes regret it . I have probably had 15 - 20 different watches in my life and presently have five watches.
The watches I presently own are two Seiko Kinetics (one dressy one casual), a Seiko military style automatic and an old Seiko lcd digital databank from 1985 that still works although shows it's age . My newest watch that I bought late November 2019 is a remake of an old digital from the 1970's by Bulova , the Computron .

The Computron.

The backside . Left to right we have the Seiko kinetic, Seiko automatic and the Bulova Computron . I love the battery access on the Bulova , simplicity at it's best.

Nice collection, Seiko over the years has produced great watches at modest prices.

Thanks , this is why I like Seiko , decent quality and style at a decent price although they do make some watches that are in the thousands of $ range .
I had a three other Seiko's that are long gone now . One got smashed while at work and the other two were given to a couple of my brothers .

If I get another watch in the near future it will be a Timex S1 . It's a little pricey for a Timex but in my opinion worth it considering the movement they use and the style and quality of the build .

It didn't take long for it to be out of stock . My name is on an email list for when it's back in stock .
