According to Lee Segall,
“A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure.”
In my case, I should perpetually be in question! OK, but I don’t believe time truly exists. So I don’t really care what time it is. The sun is my favorite indicator. It’s what matters to me in my little Zen “retreat” mountain existence! Nevertheless, to attempt to fit in with the rest of society, I do succumb to using time…
The watch I’ve been wearing lately is a solar-powered Casio G-Shock model number G7301B-3V.
For me, this G-Shock has the perfect combination of functions, toughness, and looks.
With the accuracy of quartz watches today, I felt no burning desire to have the atomic time setting feature–so why pay for it?!
This watch has a great countdown timer with a variety of functions including auto-repeat, warning signals, for example.
It allows 5 alarms–one that has snooze. Love this feature, although it’s not loud enough to wake up to.
It’s a big watch, but still fits my small wrist. The whole design looks nice with a subdued brushed dark steel mixed with black plastic design.
The position of the light button is ideal because you can’t accidentally set it off by bumping the watch.
The watch also has dual time that is easy to set and reset with one button press. Nice if you travel much.
The little digital dials at the top show battery strength (nice!), alarm functions and time (5 sec?) intervals look OK, but are really hard to read for the alarm and I have good eyes.
The band is flexible, very rugged and comfortable enough to wear to bed if desired.
Overall, I think this is an excellent watch and value. It’s perfect for my daily needs, but taste plays a big role when choosing a watch!
