Planning a three week holiday in the Philippines over Christmas. I'm going to use the time to send my Longines 4x retrograde for a warranty service as the day/date changes over about 5.20am (I'd like it closer to mid-night) and the second hand only makes it to about 55s and goes back down below 0s.
So, just for kicks I've been considering my watch options for the trip.
A) Wear no watch at all
B) Get a new battery for the cheap "Elite" quartz (2nd from left) to wear
C) Get the Citizen auto repaired to wear. Needs a new crystal after the spring-bar rusted away, the bracelet gave way and the watch crashed into the hard pavement. So I'll also need a new bracelet/strap. Might need to get the movement looked into as well.
D) Wear the hideous large blue quartz (purchased so when I run the occasional fun run I can time myself)
E) Try find a cheap G Shock on eBay (might be useful to have an alarm).
