    + 3 for the Timex Expedition. I don't know why I wear on now. I go through at least one a year, sometimes more. I can break one in a padded room. Now that I'm retired, the most accurate watch I have is my stomach - more accurate than the atomic ones.

    I had a Timex Expedition... I broke the first one within two months, and the second one died a month after the first. I dont know what happened to them, they just died. I changed batteries, but no luck...DRT.

    My watch is usually within a few seconds. It is a Seiko and is very accurate, but I adjust it daily. I have one of those computer geeks that has all my computers check the time at NIST Internet Time Service every hour and adjust the computer clocks. Anyone interested in availing themselves of this service can got to the NIST Internet Time Service website and download NISTime-32bit.exe. The links to the software and the instructions are in the yellow box on the right of the page.

    Mine's a Casio Waveceptor, so it sets itself to the atomic clock our gov' uses for blah blah blah 4 times each night, so at most, every day, I'm only off by about 50-100ms, plus it's solar powered + battery powered, so it's good for about 18 months in total darkness -+2 secs each month if I'm locked underground. > )

    I've had this watch about 6 months now and have only set it once .. I was 7 seconds fast.

    Great watch, btw. Tritium is bright! After my eyes become acclimated to the darkness, this thing will actually serve as a low level illumination device!

    ... cost was under $60.

    Dont wear one.

    I haven't worn a watch for something like 20 years. Not sure why. Usually though, I know what the time is to within a minute or two. What I am pretty good at is not so much knowing what the time is, but knowing how much time has passed since I last saw what the time was. No idea how I do it though.
