    What is your "go to" watch

    Today, after a drunken flurry of activity last night, I woke up late for work and had to rush out the door. I couldn't find my omega smp so grabbed my suunto observer, which I like for its ultimate utility. I missed my SMP a few times today, and found it tonight carelessly thrown under my bed. I also have a hamilton kahki gmt that I try to alternate with to reduce wear and tear on both but it never seems to get on my wrist these days.

    So I suppose my "go to" watch is my omega smp, Its been on my wrist for the better part of a year, and its only 1.8 seconds fast after 11 days on this latest time trial, which is one of the reasons I love it.

    I never realized how attached I had become.



    What watch do you wear day in and day out?

    I have an omega speedmaster pro, which I truly love... but I would have to say, in a pinch, I'd probably go with my Suunto core. I mean, it was my most worn watch before I got the speedy, and dang that thing is useful. I can't tell you how many times I look at my speedy to use the barometer LOL

    Love the speedy? You betcha...
    Love the Suunto? You betcha.

    my alpha pvd is my beater, but i can't wear it until i find some clear nail polish stuff to coat the bezel with. i couldn't remove the movement (missing part?) to paint superluminova on the face, so i painted the bezel instead, and the paint tends to lose little bits when rubbed, like glitter. and everyone knows how hard it is to clean up glitter, so imagine how bad glow in the dark glitter would be. so i will put a protective clear coating of nail polish over the painted areas.

    not a very good picture, but here's how it turned out:

    Kept on a winder, along with others, but if I need something quickly, seems to be this, as it's always within a minute of electronic time.

    Not by design but my Alpinist tends to see the most wrist time.
