I think I need one

I've been looking for a new watch to replace mine for a while, and have finally found one. It's almost perfect enough for me to buy. Never having to set the thing, or buy new batteries is great! Too bad its not analog :( For some reason, I just don't really like digital watches. I like to be able to just glance at it, and know about what time it is by where the hands are. If you wanted me to tell you what time it was, I'd actually have to look at it longer than if I wanted to know myself. My brain is weird like that.

I also need to invest in a developing a teleportation system to get me from Winamac to Bluffton faster. I like going home, but I can never seem to get there before 9:30 no matter when I leave. Maybe I should just stop going to Best Buy, and/or eating at Karen's (like that's gonna happen).

It IS the happiest place on earth, is it not?

Also, that watch is excellent, but I'm right with you on the analog thing. It would be cool if they could make the face the solar collector, you'd think that would make it easier, having more area to work with :)

Nah, I'd like it, but it is to damn big. I really don't like watches that take up 3/4 of your rist. But that is just me. It is why I don't wear the watch I have now (sorry Laura). But other than that....AND the digital thing, I agree totally. It looks to be a kick arse watch. And Nate, as to why they don't make the face solor collector? Prolly because the cells are too thick. That is why they have to have them around the outside. But I agree, if they would have made the face the solor collector, then maybe they could have minimized it. Or heck, just get rid of half of the stupid functions, and just make the dumb watch tick. That would save space too! yay for engineers~

If you like never changing batteries, and you like analogue, I would recommend the Citizen Eco-Drive watches. I got Melissa one for Christmas, and it has performed swimmingly. They have a wide range of faces and styles, they're all solar driven with cool colors. Enough spam for one day? hehe. The only feature they don't have would be the atomic clock auto-sync.

Well, if you want a watch that (1) you don't have to charge, (2) looks stylish and (3) is analog, I think I have <a href="http://rolex.com/">the solution</a> for you.

I'll just trade your RX-8 for one, I'm sure the Rolex will pick up just as many chicks!

Yeah... but wristwatches have tiny back seats.
