    This Omega Seamaster Pro made me quit looking for new watches. I love listening to the mechanism.

    I've been wearing the G-Shock Riseman.

    How do you not like a watch you can test the temperature of the water in the shower? :)

    Just picked this up an hour ago, first watch in nearly a decade:

    G-Shock 7900

    Now here's my stupid question, how do I "turn it on"? I've exposed it to some light and the manual says it should be able to function while charging and the time should display once I start pushing buttons, but so far nothing. Will I have to leave this under a lamp overnight before it starts working?

    Looks like it's been kept in the tin for too long if it doesn't come on when the lid was opened or you press a button. You can try keeping it exposed to a strong light source for a few hours, otherwise it may need returning. I have 3x solar G's, including the 7900B, and they all switch on instantly.

    Fortunately, the time (though incorrect) is displayed now after a few hours under a lamp, but I can't seem to get any of the other functions working yet; it still doesn't respond to any button presses, so I haven't been able to set my home city and all that jazz. Note to self, never buy a solar powered gadget at night.

    When the battery is that low with just enough power for the display, the other functions still will not work. Indoor lighting is not very good for charging nearly dead watches. You should probably leave it outside exposed to sunlight...just be careful that it is not too hot outside with the sun directly on it. This time of year that should not be a worry though depending where you are it should be cool enough outside to keep the watch from getting too hot.

    Several hours of sunlight ought to do the trick.

    The Tag SEL was my everyday watch until I got the Seiko a few weeks ago. The old Tag F1 was my everyday watch from the age of 17 until I got the SEL. I need to put a battery in it and get it back into the rotation.

    Wow, that is a great looking watch. I like the functions of digital watches, but I like the looks of the analog watches better. So h.g.manifold, how is it holding up. Is it tough enough to get banged around a little bit?

    If Optimus Prime wore a watch, I think it would be this one.

    I think the more accurate statement is "If Optimus Prime WAS a watch he'd be this one"

    I replaced a broken old navy blue band and bezel on my DW-6900 with this bright yellow. It's brought on old G-Shock back into rotation. A few scratches on the crystal, but it's a G-Shock - they're supposed to get abused.

    Hello everyone,

    Nice to see some nice watches here. I wore my Seiko Kinetic GMT SUN007 today.
