Old school nostalgia and a break from the Apple Watch.

I guess I should finally share a picture. This is one of my Bertucci DX3 Field Watches with the older face design. It’s simple, uncomplicated, rugged, and reliable. Since they released the canvas bands, it’s also one of the most comfortable watches I’ve ever worn. That made it comfortable enough to wear to bed. I’ve since realized that the lume on the hands is better than I thought.

I bought the ever-popular Citizen Eco-drive BM8180 analog watch over a year ago, and aside from the classic aviator styling I like, I also liked the solar power feature enough to think: “Wouldn’t it be great to have another solar watch I can use when I am giving my Citizen a nice sun bath on the windowsill?” After looking around, and carefully watching a certain retail website in the US with rapidly fluctuating prices on many items, I bought my first Casio G-shock – a GWM5610-1. I paid about $90, and I can’t imagine a better value in features for the money. Most G-shocks are too large for me, but this fits me well.

Sure, the style isn’t for everyone, and many people would not wear it in a suit-and-tie situation, but ever since I put it on, my citizen gets little wrist time. It just works very well, and does everything I could want a watch to do on a typical day, with no maintenance to worry about except for topping off the charging every once in a while. I have the power-save feature turned on, the auto-backlight turned off, and the time syncing works here near the east coast, even though my apartment windows face east – the opposite direction from the atomic clock in Ft. Collins, Colorado.

Looks like dhgate.com is down.

I was going to look up G-shock adapters.

 

EDIT:

It's not down for everyone.

Just for some people with unlucky internet like me.

I can access the site with a VPN, however.

I received my Casio G-Shock GD350-1 today.

Here's a better photo (that I found online).

I bought it used, and I got a real bargain.

It almost looks like it is new, and it was only $35 with no tax.

I ordered some accessories to go with the watch.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/JaysAndKays-BULLBARS-for-Casio-G-Shock-GD350-Protectors-Wire-Guards-GD-350/272903641466

https://www.ebay.com/itm/24mm-Mens-Watch-Bracelet-Stainless-Steel-Multicolored-Shiny-0-8mm-Mesh-Strap/192625268332

The accessories cost about $65 after tax.

So I spent $65 on accessories for a $35 watch.

That makes it a pretty expensive watch in my book, and even though the watch is like new, it's not perfect, but that's another story.  :-)
