  • looking for a new watch

    I just realized that my current watch screams cheap - I had to wait for the time hands to make an entire 12 clock revolution until I can set it to the correct time.

    Since I'm a geek, I thought I'll get a geeky watch. Anyone knows of any geeky watches I can buy locally?
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

      What's a "geeky" watch? You mean a digital one? How about a Casio? They're not too expensive and places like Best Buy would also carry them. The self-winding Timex watches are pretty cool looking too. They're analog rather than digital, but they don't need batteries, which is a plus.

      P.S. I have a solar-powered Citizen watch.

        Having said that, guess what I wear?

                Those watches are cool! omg

                I wear Fossil watches. I guess their digital watches are sorta geeky... Fossil also has the Bluetooth CallerID watch so you can just look at your watch and see who's calling you. It's $250. Dunno if they have any at the store in the mall.

                I had a sun dial watch for about 3 months before the pointy dial part broke off. That was kinda neat.

                    No one ever looks at a watch or clock to find out what time it actually IS; we are always checking to see "how much time has passed since..." or "how much time is left until..." something.

                      Didja ever notice that a good percentage of the time, when you ask what time it is or glance at your watch or look at a clock, it's invariably either 20 minutes past or 20 minutes before the next hour?

                        So, I looked at the clock as soon as I read this post...3:38 p.m. Close enough to fit the theory.

                              I just looked at my system tray and it says 12:43!

                              I'm a watch fanatic but for some reason my favorite is my $9.99 Casio Illuminator watch. Cheap and lightweight it tells the time accurately and hardly weighs anything. At just under $10 it's a carefree watch.

                              When people look at my cheapo watch they laugh but I tell them this cheap watch can wake me up can your $5,000 Rolex do that? If I lose my Casio I simply go to Longs and buy another. You lose your $25,000 Rolex and you're knees go weak cuz you can't easily replace it and you're still paying for the last one.

                              My most expensive watch I own is a $350 Citizen's watch and I hardly wear it.

                              But if you want geek then the Casio Data Watch is the clincher. It's the epitome of geek watches when geek wasn't stylish.
