    I didn't find a wruw thread so I thought it may be a good idea to start one

    Today I'm wearing an Ermano that has been in my family for decades

    Today I am wearing my fathers diver which passed down to me 5 years ago.

    Any other watch aficionados around?

    Today I am wearing my 20 year old Tag Heuer:

    My collection is fairly boring and cheap, the Tag being the most expensive and was my graduation present from my parents.

    I've been wearing my father's old Seiko since Monday and I think I'll keep it on my wrist until Christmas

    Although I’m a diehard user of mechanical watches, the Citizen Eco-Drive fascinates me. If I didn’t already own 5 mechanical watches I’d buy an Eco-Drive.

    They are nice watches, I’ve had two. BUT, I wouldn’t get another. Why ? Well both have stopped working. What happens is the capacitor goes after around five years. The capacitor being the battery that stores the energy from the light. These are not as cheap as having a battery replaced. Easy to tell if the capacitor is going on an eco drive is it counts two seconds instead of one in one movement of the second hand.

    That is interesting, I'll see how it pans out. I love the look of Citizen watches, and I think for what you get, they are very reasonable priced.

    Just found someone quoting £120 for a service and replacement capacitor ! They are nice watches though.

    A quick Google suggests that Citizen will repair as part of the lifetime be warranty. £120 is similar money to the battery replacement of my Tag...
