こんばんは。How’s it going?
As some of you might know, I love wrist-watches. I don’t have a huge collection, nor are there any expensive pieces, but I enjoy wearing them, watching videos from other watch enthusiasts, and “window” shopping online.
Today I took two of my watches to a watch repair shop to get the batteries replaced. The Casio tide and moonphase watch (AQW100-1AV) with stainless-steel band has been dead for a couple years now, and the Goofy watch hasn’t run in about 30 years. But both are back in action!
The Goofy watch, which I bought when I was in high school, is too small for my wrist, so I gave it to my wife. I don’t think she had seen it before, but she’s happy to have it! I’m surprised actually. 😄 It just needs a 16mm band.
The Casio aviator watch (MTP4500D-1AV) with the orange hands is my newest addition, just purchased last week. It’s got a quartz movement, a stopwatch function, and a slide-rule bezel. I think it looks nice, and after I replaced the metal band with the black silicone strap, it’s very comfortable on the wrist – the most comfortable in my little collection. I prefer automatic movement over quartz, but I loved the look of this Casio and the price was nice – just $33 on sale!
