    What's your most interesting or unusual complication on a watch you own or use to own?

    I know that watch companies have crammed some really interesting features into their watches.

    I'll start out with two. One on a watch that I own now, and one on a watch that I gave away.

    The most unusual complication on a watch that I own now is on my Hamilton Khaki Action Sunset. It's a calculator that will give the exact time of sunset on the 15th of each month in 6 different cities: Los Angles, Nadi, Manilla, Musqat, London and Gander.

    The second is on a watch that I gifted to a good friend. The Citizen Calibre 9000 has a digitally generated minute repeater.

    How about you guys?

    .....pics...


    the piezo electric lighter. Flame from upper left, button to ignite lower left by my thumb. I've had this forever..


    My brother would pay me to do HIS chores, then later sell me his stuff to get his money back. This was his, and it would still light until a few years ago. The gas can be recharged through the metal valve attachment at the top right of the case.

    (as I have said before I have NEVER gotten rid of ANY watch, EVER!)

    This one isn't too unusual, but it is kind of unique. It was my Casio MDV102. I sold it a long time ago. But the illumination on it was unusually bright. Here is a pic from the internet:



    That thing will light up an entire room. I never knew if it was intentional or not to be that bright.

    Unusual for me is having water resistance of 200m and above since I can't swim. Or is it just irony?

    If you can't swim, then 200m water resistance is all the more important!
