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.

Same here

My Casio Pathfinder PAW-2000 just arrived via USPS today...oh mama...good thing I downloaded the PDF from Casio's website before I bought it, cause that book is thick (112 pages x 3 languages).

Watch was already set up for the correct time, home city AND UTC as the world time city (which I would have set it for anyway). Came charged up to Medium, after a few minutes in the sun it jumped straight to High with no probs.

Was able to reset the lat/long and the altimeter for my house with little problem, I actually had more of a problem setting the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit until I realized I was mashing the wrong button...

Its going to take some time to get used to this one...this ain't no G-Shock, that's for sure!

Watch suggestion?

I would say get an Omega Speedmaster Professional :) - they are reasonably indestructible.

Alternatively, head to Poland and have it repaired there ;). Depending on your budget, Lange & Söhne makes some nice watches... (that I cannot afford)

I would agree! That's mine towards the middle of this snapshot. I love watches, and like everything from Omega and Zenith to Swatch. I tend to mostly wear either my Omega Speedmaster Professional (first and only watch worn on the moon!) or my Breitling Superocean, although I've been thinking lately of picking up a Breitling Aerospace which would probably relegate the Superocean to occasional duty.

I've always had a thing for the speedy, maybe because my dad has had one for as long as I can remember (the watch is about 10 years older than I am :p)

Intersesting that these are all automatics. No time to have a battery fail in space.

None of the watches NASA officially used are automatics. The Speedmaster Professional issued from Mercury through STS-89 is manual wind. The Speedmaster X-33 is electronic quartz.

I was given a TAG Heuer Pro Chronograph many years ago. It was so big, heavy and clunky that it would catch on everything and I would bend/break watch pins one after another. So there it sits, a $1400 watch in my sock drawer... now a days I use my cell phone. Not to mention the subject of batteries... about a year after I got the watch the battery went. The jewler told me the TAG Chronos last about 11 months on average. Unreal.


If you must know...

^11 months? Seriously? :evil: And you're not doing cartwheels while pulling an Exorcist? :eek: You have incredible restraint.

The last time I attempted to change a battery on a watch (a Casio G-Shock) I got the back panel off, got the battery in...and I caught all kinds of hell trying to get the case back on. Never did.

Solar from now on-I don't have time for that mess.
