    Off Topic post What non-Casio watches do you own and why?

    It's all in my bio with the exception of a few.

    For the most part I own other Japanese watches and like their durability.

    I'd probably rate Seiko as my favorite watch brand at the moment.

    So, what about the rest of you?

    Had this Seiko Watch for the 8 - 10 years I was in undergrad/grad level school. Was handsome, durable, and incredibly accurate. This was before laptops and cell phones and I would check/set time by calling the 'Time' number in NYC. Only once/twice a year would the Watch be off by a second. Really that is how accurate it was. Was somehow misplaced at end of medical school. That was when I got the GMT II. Only recently have I got into G Shock World. I think all my Watches are Great.

    Re: What non-Casio watches do you own and why?

    I guess you could say that my tastes involve mainly the Japanese "Big Three." My favorite brand currently is Casio, without a doubt. My next favorite would be Seiko, I really like their dive watches and have not stopped buying them. I also like Citizen watches, and have several. Their Eco-drive works very well and so does their atomic sync. I have one of their Signature line watches and it might be the most beautiful watch I own. It also has Swiss-level quality IMO.

    Those are my big 3. I have singles or small numbers of watches from other brands too. Bulova, Oris, NFW, Aragon, Timex, Victorinox Swiss Army, and Deep Blue. (not to mention a sizeable collection of Invictas and others from boutique brands - nearly all of which will eventually be sold, as my tastes have changed.)

    I have never gotten into the expensive Swiss automatics from brands like Omega, Rolex, Breitling, or the like. I'm not saying it will never happen, but it's unlikely. They make some beautiful watches. But they probably aren't really my style. I never wear suits anymore and rarely can be found in anything other than jeans or casual clothes, and I'm not out to impress anyone with my choice of watch. Those brands just don't seem to fit too well with my lifestyle. That's why probably 95% of the time or more, I'll have a Casio or Seiko on my wrist and be very happy with it.

    I find it interesting that I see posts by some guys here saying that, once they discovered Gs, they lost all interest in their mechanical automatic watches. Of course, I appreciate the accuracy of my Casios as much as anybody else. But I also appreciate and enjoy my Seiko automatics too. When I am wearing one of them, it does not matter to me at all that it gains or loses some number of seconds/day. I'm fine with that. I love their styles and designs, and Seiko lume is legendary. Plus, Seiko has a pretty impressive history with dive watches and a great reputation, so I know they are well-engineered, quality pieces.

    Re: What non-Casio watches do you own and why?

    Timex = several; a family tradition (my dad, a working man, wore one and only one) and Timex owned, "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking". That was their thing well before G-Shocks.

    Seiko = only one; my first "adult" watch (a chronograph from the 90s).

    Haute Horlogerie = I'll leave that to others. Respect due; it just ain't me.

    BUT... Casio = in the modern world nothing "takes a licking" like a G-Shock. It's also the "Swatch" for folks who need a real watch for that LA after party that gets just a little too crazy. Ya feel me Brah? ;)

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.

    Me too:

    ani-digi Florida Keys Time titanium with sapphire



    Momentum Format 4 Titanium is an homage to the Breitling Aerospace that is in 3 ways better....sweep second hand and button controlled digital instead of crown controlled. Plus it is Far, far less expensive.

    Among my non-Casio watches, I've got four Citizen Eco-Drive models.

    Blue Angels AT8020-03L - I like the aviation theme, the colors and the radio control on this one.

    Aqualand Depth Meter BJ2128-05E - I like the colors and the asymmetrical shape on this one. It's my analog Frogman.

    "Excalibur" BN0100-00E - This one reminds me of a classic 1970s Japanese dive watch.

    BV1085-06E - I like the all black look with the PVD case and a touch of red on the small second hand.
