I have a friend called K. He is not a watch guy but always wears a watch. For the last 10 years it has been the same Citizen dive watch but now it is not keeping time so well and rather than get it serviced he's ready for something new. He mentioned this in the pub last night and I said I would give him some options, I love stuff like this. I thought I'd post the request on here so we could all join in!
A bit about K.
Middle-aged, a real outdoors, country kind of guy. Fixing WWII vehicles, building stuff, trekking, rock climbing you get the picture. His work is as an engineer but that might find him dangling off a bridge, or diving, or welding battleships but he's also the boss so has to dig out a suit from time to time. And he needs one watch on his wrist for all of this.
He doesn't want to spend more than £200 (US$250), would prefer an automatic (he is an engineer after all) but not averse to quartz. He would like a day/date complication. Size wise I'm guessing 38-42mm range. He loves military stuff so a military connection might interest him.
Can we find K his perfect watch?
