    I know, not a very original question, but still a fun one to see the answers to. So, if you could only have one watch, which would it be?

    I have not worn a watch in about 10 years so having one watch would be a step in the right direction. ;D

    Hey Co, you've been hanging around USN too much! :laugh: Just kidding bro!
    I'm just saying that because that is a favorite at that forum. One of my favorites as well. Good catch. O0

    Very tough question. One thing I will tell you, it would have to be:

    -Automatic or Eco-drive, no batteries whatsoever;
    -Deep immersion resistant (200m or more), for general strength and my underwater spearfishing activities;
    -Adjustable classic bracelet (because of the neoprene suit);
    -Have a seconds hand and rotating bezel, for my timing needs;
    -Big easily read face and hands, with some luminescense, for my flying and night activities;
    -RRR: robust, reliable and more reliable;
    -Affordable (below 500 €, preferably more around 250€).

    In conclusion, these requirements certainly point to some latest models of Citizen dive watches. There's one, in Ti, for 225€, and christmas is coming!

    It's hard to choose just one, but recently I've grown very find of my Fortis Flieger. It is my only automatic with the screw down crown.

    I am wearing the ONE and only watch; a TAG Heuer Automatic. It is stainless steel and gold, with a green face. This IS my dream watch.

    I've been wearing my TSAR almost every day now since I got it around the begining of the year & I love it BUT if I was allowed only one watch it would probably would be one of my Casio DW-6900s! It has everything I need, nothing I don't & while not as easy to replace as it once was it can be found without looking too hard & is down right cheap considering how dependable & rugged I've found it to be. The only reason I have more than one is because while looking for a replacement strap for my ten year I got a deal one another that was too good to pass up (probably won't be the last time that happens either). I'd love, love, love an Omega Seamaster but I only really need the Casio (and the occasional battery every 4 years or so...).

    Well, I'll vote for my SKX173.  Tough as nails and never eeds winding (I'll never go back to a non-automatic).  This has an Italian rubber strap w/deployant.

    Something that's auto winding, 17 - 21 jewels. Currently, I'm wearing a Citizen Pro-Master 21 jewel auto.

    Tough question. I've got a lot of watches that I really love. I guess it would have to be my Seiko Orange Monster.

    For me, it would have to be my Tutima DI 300m military. Excellent lume, excellent time keeping and it's titanium and tough.

    Timex, Baby!

    prefer my Timex over all, simple, reliable and not to expensive to replace.
