Default timex tide watch - update

ok I admit it ...not a meth addiction but a watch addiction - this is a neat unit - for $130 bucks it is heavy , all stainless polished and tells you immedialtely what the tide is at the ramp or boat location. (yes...easily to impress me)....and yes, I own the black one too...

I'm a bit of a watch nut myself,though I have never had a tide watch,but that is a pretty cool looking watch.I think I'll pick one up,and leave it on my boat.

I'm with you elusive been looking for awhile now and personally I like the Nixon Ti better than the Timex. Any ideas on if it keeps the tides OK?

Glenn, thats a sweet watch. I'm also a watch aficionado, and preferably Rolex. I do have a Timex that tells the tides moon phases and the most favorable fish bit times!

The thing is.. The Timex will always be accurate, the Rolex won't

But that's not the reason one buys an automatic movement anyway.... It's nice to see Timex making some good SS watches instead of nikel over brass like they usually do..

I have been finding myself browsing ebay again, must be time for another watch!

Garett,

That's a nice watch but I am not a "diver" watch collector I am more of a flieger style kinda guy... I mean I like to look at divers but I am more into aviation style or just plain old big number dial dress watches.

Want to see some nice watches that IMHO are priced "right"? Check out Marcello C Watches, Valjoux or Swiss ETA movements with top notch finishing work and very robust cases and bands.

For my everyday watch you can't beat a Seiko IMHO... The Seiko Five Automatic S27 is a hell of a movement that will last more than five decades and keeps reasonably accurate time out of the box (though if hand regulated they are ever better) I have two Seiko 5 Dress watches, a Seiko Kinetic (another bang up watch) a Luminox Swiss Quartz and a Seiko Pilot Chronograph and all have been flawless pieces. Next on the list is most likely a Stainless Omega DeVille with the ruby Co-Axial Escapement, a very classy no frills watch.

I prefer Rip Curl tide watches...always been good to me, used to wear an oakley timebomb, prob my favorite non-boating watch, but without a tide watch i'd be lost at work.
