It's been a while since I've had a watch, but I'm starting to need one. Two of the last five times I went hiking, my cell phone's battery died (it's also my camera) and that meant I didn't have a way to know what time it was; it's really good to get back to the car before dark when you're on a snowy mountain trail. It would be nice to have a nice(ish) watch in general, and this pushed me over the edge.
So, I'm looking for one with a sun/moon dial for am/pm (because they look nice, and cheerful), with a calendar and day-of-the-week function. Every now and then I get to take a week off and go camping, where I lose my what day it is frame of reference, and that would be a help when I'm wondering if I have time to do a particular hike. I need to be able to tell what time it is when I wake up in the middle of the night - my last one had tiny glow lines on the hands, but they were so small they weren't useable. Ideally I'd really like a mechanical, self-winding one, because I'm a hiker, cyclist, and kayaker, and, in generally, someone who's impressed by human power, and would like a human powered watch. Finally, it shouldn't be big enough to be gaudy.
Can you tell that I'm new at this and don't really know how to figure out if the ones I'm looking at are good or not? Anyway, the choices I've found are:
Stuhrling Original Men's 214L.3315K59 Classic Artemis Swiss Quartz Calendar Brown Watch
Men's Liverpool Moon Phase 1-1596A Black Leather
Breytenbach Men's BB77101W Swiss Ronda Moonphase Day Date Week Watch
The last one looks busier than I like, and I prefer dark (especially dark blue!) but choices are good, and the plain white background isn't bad, either.
