    Does anyone else have one of these? I've had this watch for probably 12 years now and I still love it! See the pics.

    Sort of like my Fossil Watch. The the pretiest tool, but a damn fine example of cheap labor forces actually producing a quality item while still feeding their familes:thumbsup:

    I probably paid around $29.99, IIRC. It was at a store up on the highway called Service Merchandise, which is no longer in business.

    This is actually a pretty good watch. The biggest plus is that it has 5 separate alarms that you can set. I've never seen any other watches in that price range with that many alarms.

    I have a $3 digital watch from Walmart that I wore through Army BCT ten years ago.

    Still works.

    I like watches that tell time, don't look too ostentatious, are relatively inexpensive, and that's it. I don't mind digital watches, but I don't need any other functions than time.

    My watch:

    I like that. I quit wearing watches becauses metal ones are an occupational hazard. IS that totally encased in rubber, or just anodized (or coated in some other way) black?

    no luck on ebay. i'd be willing to trade a new ipad4 if anyone can find the exact watch with original wrist strap.

    It's ceramic.

    Really nice watch for a little over $100.
    I like a lot of Skagen's designs. Simple, elegant, and inexpensive.

    I like Seiko and Orient, as well. I could never see myself spending into the hundreds or more on a watch, even if I was wealthy.

    I do like Casio, though. Their cheaper and simpler watches, at least, not crazy about G-shock like a lot of people seem to be.

    Ahhh...even better. So it can NEVER conduct electricity, even if it gets scratched/abraided.

    I will have to look into those whenever I finally decide I want to buy a new watch.

    Can anyone help me find this Casio Twin-Graph AE-20W watch with original wrist strap?

    Just point me to where I can buy it and if I get it, I'll send you an iPad4.
