My favorite is my Marathon TSAR. The rest are mostly Seiko Divers, except a Swiss Army that keeps better time than any of them. I've had that one running steady for about 15 yrs. and only gains about 2 seconds over 3 months.
The next one will be a mechanical, with transparent case so you can see the working movement.
Can anyone suggest such a watch, that's fairly accurate and is durable??

Here's a few, I'm not getting them all out because it's to much trouble finding them. The rolex in the box was given to me for my retirement and has never been out of the box, the Omega is the one I wore in the service. Crummy picture though.I have 10 helbros goofy MIB somewhere. I don't buy watches anymore, the woman said STOP!

i've only got a few watches, nothin real fancy or valuable. i'm a big fan of old timex watches, relatively cheap to collect and they look & work well. one i've had since i was 12 & it survived a car crash where the car rolled over my arm & tore the watch off in the process, all the paint is worn off & the buttons are hard to push but it still keeps perfect time.

the old guy that used to run the local honda motorcycle dealership had a Rolex with the honda logo in the middle of the dial. i asked him about it & he told me that back in the early 80's, the honda corporation offered some of it's top dealers the option of a trip to the super bowl or a rolex. he told me he took the rolex & watched the game at home on his couch. i gotta say i probably would've done the same
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
