    In order to celebrate its 30th birthday I have taken out of my safe a Hewlett Packard HP01 calculator watch I bought new in NYC in 1977. With a set of fresh batteries it still performs all its functions that include time, date, stopwatch, alarm, timer, calculator and interaction among them (e.g. number of days between two dates, total cost of a phone call).

    I now sport it as my EDC watch and people say that they have never seen one of these. ;D

    For those who want to know more: http://www.hpmuseum.org/hp01.htm

    Very nice vintage watch kilovolt!

    I've read the description you linked and it is really an amazing watch, I don't think we have a current watch that can do all that nice stuff and this one is from the 70s!
    Which is the function that surprises most people or that you use more often?

    A very unusual feature: if you know the unit cost per minute of a phone call and you multiply it for the stopwatch reading you can see continuously on the display the cost of the call instead of its duration. :cool:

    Another more useful thing: a date plus x days gives you another date. :shocked:
    Or again if you want to know what day of the week is your birthday next year....... ;)

    Just arrived yesterday - Casio G Shock G-8000

    my last digital watch was over 12 years ago in 5th grade. hard to get back to actually reading numbers and not hour and minute hands.

    starting to develop another unhealthy EDC hobby.... ;)

    seiko titanium, no idea what kind (V732 guts)

    :censored:, it's hard to take good pictures of a watch on your wrist without a macro function on the camera.

    GW-5500. This is actually a mild Frankenwatch. Case and band from a GW-5500-1AJF, module from a GW-5500-1JF. So it has the stealthy blackness of the 1AJF, with the more readable positive display of the 1JF.

    Goodness Erck! I'm almost blinded by your bling blings!

    Nice! Seems like you got most of your bases covered.

    How do you like your Invicta compared to the rest? I notice its the only non-metal bracelet watch there.

    yes, I like it for that. I does go with shorts and topsiders or any brown belt better.

    casual but very EDC...Black Rubber UZI is great for fishing/camping. I wear it it the shop also

    Heavy, sleek and stylish. ;D Definitely worth the wait (and the customs duty :( )!

    During the work week, I rotate between a Rolex Datejust and Movado Museum Automatic. On weekends, I rotate various other watches depending on the days activities.

    Oris, Breitling, or TAG. Depends on the day, but all are automatics. They are also too expensive, but what can I say, I got the watch bug a while ago...
