    Orient Monday because the strap on the Timex was making my wrist sweat and the Orient was the first thing with a (brain fart) one piece strap.[​IMG]

    Either the Orient has slowed down or the time clock is fast. It was about a minute slow this morning. Could be worse like my BSH Invicta and run 15 minutes fast in 12 hours....

    I know the feeling, darn near impossible to find the correct watch batteries now. I hate to order online for something so small that should be readily available

    The problem might be that the particular battery is not widely used? Or at least not in the market in which @PBJS II resides? Which 'might' be why he could not find it in a B&M store.... Large or small, merchants just don't stock what they don't perceive a demand for.

    A never ending issue with battery fueled devices... and keeps changing with new generations of devices...

    You are correct, there probably isn't a demand for watch batteries so why stock them in a b&m store? I used to find any battery I needed at Radio Shack (dead) or Fry's Electronics (dying), heck even the jewelry counter at Walmart (dead as well). I just wish I didn't have to purchase them online. One place had a battery I need for $4.99 plus $5 shipping if I didn't spend at least $50. Not to mention the packaging, labor and transportation costs involved in getting that $1.49 battery

    We ordered two Swiss batteries from Amazon. Along with that she ordered a Dust Buster. That came today but no batteries. I suppose someday I will get to wear that watch again.

    Brain fart cleared.
    Put a NATO strap on the blue Timex and it's a major bit better than the silicone band.

    You are a bad influence. After looking at this photo I just bought the Maratac titanium GMT. I need to stay off this forum!

    Welcome to the club! Where do you think I got the idea to buy my Maratac Pilot in the first place? Lol

    The resin bracelet on this g shock is extremely comfortable—no need to put it on a NATO.
