Here's the watches I currently have in rotation (except for the G Shock)

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.

Sure - it's fashion over function and not that uncommon today.

I won't look twice at a watch if the hands aren't obvious or get lost on the face itself.

Once an inmate has the watch, who he passes it along to will be at his discretion (as long as they are a member of advrider). That being said, Mr. Hamilton loves adventure and far off lands, so I encourage you to consider these facts when selecting the next wearer.
Have you started a thread yet for this??

I can do NYC, a range of places in the UK, and Moscow

Kind of/sort of. I think mechanical watches are the ultimate in machinery.

Check out the Citizen Stiletto. I almost bought this last watch last week, but ultimately did not because it would be my only watch, and I wouldn't be able to tell time on it
