Current wearing one of these:

Took two replacements to get a good one. Guess "third time's the charm" is real.

I only buy Citizen watches, since my first one saved my life when I was in the Navy. Someone tried to murder me by pushing me from 4th Deck Watch in the #1 reactor plant, and my watch band caught on a metal pole and held long enough for me to get a grip and pull myself up. Otherwise, I'd have plummeted to a very unpleasant death haha!

USN? Carrier? Yikes.
Was there an investigation into this?

I have a little hairless spot on my left wrist where my watch used to be before I lost it.

I mostly only need to know how close it is to the end of which month now.

The ship was in port, and that reactor plant was shut down. I was the shutdown reactor room supervisor (so long ago, I can't remember the exact watch title lol, I only remember the operational watchstation titles. When running, I stood Chief Reactor Watch), taking log readings on all of the equipment. There were no witnesses, as the only other people were in the control room. I know who it was, but there was no way of proving anything, so I made no formal report. He drank urine in his coffee every watch for the duration of my last WestPac "cruise," though, before the completion of my 6 year enlistment, so there's that haha!

Man I seen some stuff when I was in the RCAF, but not straight up attempted murder...

Then again I've heard about straight-up gangsterism on USN carriers...

Wore one of these things when I was still in the Forces, but with an OD Zulu band:


Never got around to truly love this thing, probably because the second hand never hit the hash marks, and the minute hand jerked every time the second hand moved.

On the left, the one that saved my life haha! (Never had the clasp replaced, it gave way just as I got a handhold with the other hand.) The newer watch that collected some dust sitting on my dresser since I wore it last is on the right. Sorry for the potato picture lol.

Here's a better pic I found on the internet of the old watch:

Porsche Design Flat Six P'6351 most of the time. Have some vintage and not so vintage Rolex, Tudor, Movado, etc. :facepalm:

The dial looks like a dashboard instrument.

The case is designed like a piston.

The strap has a tire pattern inside and the rotor is shaped like half a wheel.

Oh, and did I mention the Lume?

I love the design of this watch and is a great daily!
