I am a huge fan of the grab and go quartz watch. It has just been so practical. I love this one the most because it has the traditional dive watch look, and Marc is such a great guy.
This Certina. It's a quartz chronometer and accurate to about 24 seconds per year. Because of DST I only have to set it twice a year and it's never more than 13 seconds fast. Plus it's water resistant to 200 m even though it's not a diver.
Scurfa Diver One. I had a house accident where the main water pipe broke, and I had to hold the two sides of the pipe for 42 minutes. The Scurfa was on my wrist all that time, at instances resisting 100+ psi straight on.
One of mine is the same watch; the #ISL-101! 😂
I do have a couple of other favorites; an analog/digital and a digital.
I also have a favorite solar quartz.
Blown away. Definitely going to check this out!
I love the islander! If you haven’t checked out the clasp Marc sells I would.
Oh, I am familiar with Islander watches and products. 😂
My collection consists mostly of mechanical pieces, but I do have a few quartz pieces as well. My favorite of those would be the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Skywalker.
I have so many 'favorite' quartz watches, but a good example of one in my collection is my Armitron AllSport I bought from a K-Mart in 2001. It truly is one of the most endearing watches I own and checks all of the boxes for functionality. And guys...who doesn't love that textured blue dial??
You are one of the richest folks when it comes to great watches. I love your collection!
Thanks! I don't really have expensive watches, but I do try to find unusual watches.😀
My grab and go, non-G-Shock is this Seiko Solar Prospex Worldtimer. It's the biggest watch I own at 44mm diameter (I have a 6.75" wrist), but the lug to lug is only about 46mm, so it's very wearable even for my modest wrist.
About half of my watch collection is quartz, so there are lots to choose from. Probably this one, with it‘s liquid blue dial and integrated bracelet, and roundy 90s goodness.
So far average + 2 seconds a month, so a great grab and go tool watch.
The PRX is just a nice dressy piece that I can just put straight on without having to wind and set the time, don't care about the date aspect of the watch and so far the accuracy seems pretty good.
