I use a couple of watches, but he one I use the most is my Cartier Pasha with tachometer. I have to pay $695.00 to have the battery replaced.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

If you are truly geeky, you get the Omega X33!

The same watch you find on the wrists of everyone on the ISS and the one that timed most shuttle missions after about 1998. Machined titanium, analog/digital, all sorts of mission specific timing functions, a really loud alarm (the design goal: had to be audible in the cockpit of the shuttle during re-entry).

A collection of Fossil watches. I've been buying them for years.

Been using a Suunto Vector (time/date, stopwatch, count-down timer, alarms, barometer, altimeter, compass) since they came out; late 1999,IIRC. Only changed batteries and straps in that time.

My favorite as well. I use an Xlander, essentially the same watch. I've had it for years and have simply changed batteries.

Simple.... Casio G-Shock with RF setting receiver. Sets itself daily by radio to the atomic clock so it's never so much as 1/10 of a second off. Has solar battery which runs the watch and keeps the backup battery charged. Waterproof to 200 meters (it's also my dive watch and we have been to 150 feet together). In the 6 or 7 years I've owned it, it has never required anything.... no battery, no setting - nothing. When I'm away from home, I scroll to the time zone I'm visiting and that's it.

For me, it's the most perfectly functional watch I've ever owned, and since I care nothing about jewelry, it almost never leaves my wrist. (The only other watches I own are pocket watches)

Pathfinder here, model 3134.
Has barometer, altimeter, thermometer, phase of the moon, and tide. Also has a LCD second hand, atomic setting, and is solar powered. Water resistant to 20BAR. Love it.

Agreed on the solar-powered Casios. I also had a Timex altimeter/barometer watch for a while, and it had one feature I loved: if you set the altitude to your known height, it automatically adjusted the barometer (and vice versa). My Pathfinder doesn't do that, but otherwise it's nearly perfect.

The solar power is definitely the best part; no more battery changes ever!


Geoff
All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Call me an old fogey if you like, but I prefer a watch to simply tell me the time, a barometer to tell me the air pressure etc. I've absolutely no call for an alimeter or GPS in my camera.

Keep these things seperate and they are all the better for it.

I would rather carry several items that each do one thing well.

Suunto Core. Best watch I've ever had for the outdoors. Yes, they are big but that's actually one thing I like about this watch. Easy to read - just don't get the negative face! Has barometer, altimeter, compass, stop watch, sunrise/sunset time, timer, etc. etc.
