Default Re: Which watch do you own

Can anyone suggest an inexpensive yet classy (under 2k) watch which can store the timing for 3 timezones? (min 2)?

Oh and earlier watches used to have nice backlighting like indiglo. Do those features still exist?

please advise one. I travel to KL every week, so i need an informal watch for regular use (formal casio edifice is set to KL time!)

Got myself a Fossil 2565 chrono from Snapdeal. Love the watch, particularly for the weekends.

That's a lovely watch but am really eyeing the strap even more. May I know where did you source the strap from?

A Citizen Eco Drive with Sapphire Crystal Glass.
Used Casio for nearly 7 years before it had so many scratches on its glass that I had to keep it. Decided there and then that the next watch will have Sapphire Crystal.
Still the showroom guys managed to scratch it while shortening the strap, and I realized it only later.

Also have a Seiko Automatic, but that is without Sapphire Crystal and I use it sparingly to avoid any scratches on it.

I picked this up for about 4K, IIRC.

So with all the buzz and seeing pictures here of the hmt pilot i managed to get one (friendly bangalore bhpian silverwood went to the hmt factory and bought one for me),Thanks pal

I love it ,i so wished the dial was bigger in size (somehow it looks too punny on my wrist)

Really classy though ( no pics as folks here have posted plenty)

Called the Citizen NP3013 - 01E.
Sweep movement automatic watch with sapphire front and back and Rose Gold tone body. One of the best double push button butterfly leather straps i have seen, all weather use(read: extended periods of being exposed to rains and water) still has the colour and the durability that it came with. Nowadays even Tissot's come with paper thin quality, cheap looking leather strap's when compared. Wish the images could justice.
True to being Sapphire crystal glass, the glass is as good as new even though the body has suffered due to the abuse . Power reserve of around 30 hours i guess. Completely manufactured in Japan even the leather strap, as opposed to a lot of Japan Movement, assembled in China, Japanese brands.

Got this from my uncle about 2 years ago, beautiful Mont Blanc GMT Timewalker, unfortunately had to give it back recently but I still wear it from time to time.

P.S. Sorry for the bad picture, don't really have many at the moment
