I got my Pebble watch from the famous Kickstarter project but haven't had time to set it up. Gah.

I hate you.

I really didn't need to find that company. The prices are reasonable and I really like almost all of their designs. Simple and clean faces without a lot of extraneous glitz.

Yes, their designs are nice. I've been looking at them for several years, before the Momentum series. This one was $185 at REI on clearance for $129 + 10% off for being the demo, I couldn't refuse.
Insult to injury? - Very light and comfortable!

The first "expensive" watch I've ever owned (I realize that's totally relative) and a gift from Mrs. Hardware back when this was a good portion of her monthly wages. I just got it back from Citizen after a servicing (new rubber strap, new battery, cleaning, new gasket and paint touch-up on the 12 o'clock marking on the bezel).

Citizen Promaster





Next, another gift from Mrs. Hardware - she bought this for me when we were vacationing in Dubai. Also just returned from Citizen after a servicing (new battery, new gasket & cleaning).

Citizen Promaster Air Diver's in Titanium




Citizen Eco Drive Diver's in Titanium. Got this on sale at a jewellery store that was closing for $150.



All the Citizens are Japanese movements.


Now on to Seiko.

SNM037 Automatic Diver's. It's mechanical so if I don't wear it and don't think to swing it 30-50 times a day it winds down. Another one I found on sale (IIRC <$200).



Malaysian movement.


Finally, my Seiko Diver's Kinetic. It uses movement the same as the mechanical automatic to charge a cell so it can sit for extended periods without moving and stay accurate.



Japanese movement.
I love that Air Diver Citizen you've got there! I remember when those came out... almost paid the overseas post to buy one. Alas... I didn't. I love the depth and altitude sensor features. Not to mention its presence on the wrist. My friend... contact me if you ever want to sell that wonderful diver!

I have a Seiko kinetic like the last watch but in black. Doesn't get much wrist time because of the weight.
