I love talking about wrist watches. Sometimes I can't help myself and I have brought up the subject 2x in the past.
Lately, I have been into the simple 3 hand function watches. Maybe 4 hand(GMT) w or w/o day or day/date. Preferably automatic or manual hand wind however, quartz is not out of the question but, I'm not referring to digital is for now.
I just installed another battery(CR2016) in a TIMEX Expedition w/Indiglo at the crown function. And same battery in an old(25 yr ol) Ironman Triathalon Digital(not the subject here). I bought both batteries(lithium) at the $1 Store for 2pc/$1, exp.date 2021. These batteries in both watches seem to last near 10 yrs in my experience. I've had both watches for many years.
Anyway, it's the Timex Expedition that is the subject as they have these field watch look to them similar to the Hamilton Khaki(which I love) but, at a much, much lower price point. Cheap but, last forever it seems and all without issue or servicing but, why would anyone service an inexpensive time piece.
How about you, any comments on the simple watches regardless of cost/price? Sure, we can talk about the Rolex Explorer!
