    Question Does anybody feel wearing a watch with a battery is unnatural?

    I do. How about you?
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    Yeah, that happens when you get used to automatics. Ever since I got my TAG Chronotimer, I kept reminding myself that moving my arms around will not charge the watch.

    Re: Does anybody feel wearing a watch with a battery is unnatural?

    I feel the opposite. To me it feels wierd to have a mechanical watch on, wondering whether the spring's fully wound or what accuracy it "feels like" giving me today, knowing that about 2 days after I take it off it'll be dead and if i want to wear it I ahve to start all over again. Knowing that every time I buy a new one I'll spend a month or so checking it's accuracy, even if it's got the same movement in it as the lst one I bought! Solar I can handle, especially in the Summer. Batteries feel more natural to me. You put one in and your watch works. Done.
    Could you imagine going through the same hassle every time you bought a new microwave? Scalding coffee or cold soup because you forgot to allow for your new movement?

    Er, GSaC? At least 4 of your daily watches have batteries in them. What gives man?

    I think refrigerators are the work of the devil.

    It's hot outside, but cold in the fridge. *shudder*

    Yes. The combination of the Magnetism and the EMP from the movement has lessen my Mental and Physical abilities.
    I have not yet figured out how to wrap the watch in Aluminium foil, and still be able to see the time.
