Watch Collecting Hassles to Avoid!

Every hobby has its challenges and watch collecting is no exception.  Short band lengths, difficult battery swaps, and impenetrable product packaging are but a few.  Of course, avoiding a problem is one thing and overcoming a problem is another.  You might have to read up on watch repair for that!

My Favorite Diver Style Watch

I really enjoy classic Diver Style watches.  They have a simple, clean, functional design, and they usually have a bezel that turns.  A rotating bezel is great for timing things while wearing an analog watch.  My favorite diver style watch is my current Caravelle By Bulova Stainless Steel Watch (Model 45B35K).

 It's black.  It's stainless.  It has a simple rotating bezel.

What time is it?

It's time for a new blog about wristwatches.  For years, articles about wristwatches have focused on expensive and unusual mechanical watches that cost lots of money.  But, this blog will mostly focus on men's wristwatches that we can all afford.  It'll focus on the watches that I own from companies that we all know - brands like Casio, Timex, Relic, Bulova, and Seiko.  You'll get to read about funky little $15 watches from Target and Walmart.  Of course, if a Rolex drops from the sky, I'll write about it.

These days, my favorite watch is pretty simple.  It's a simple Casio TeleMemo 30 World Time Ana-Digital Watch.  It cost about $30.  But, it is amazing.  Soon you'll get to read a more detailed review.
