I got a Timex Weekender Chronograph watch for Christmas. I haven’t owned a Timex since I was a kid, so it was interesting to see what they had to offer these days. Until a few years ago, I hadn’t warn a watch since my twenties. Then I discovered mechanical watches and started a small collection. It’s nice to have a timepiece on my wrist that doesn’t have to be plugged in every night. It just tells me the time and date. And looks pretty good too. While I still love my automatic/mechanical Seiko 5, I also enjoy a nice quartz watch like the Timex Weekender. Now I have one more decision to make every morning when I wake up, but I’m not complaining.

Impressive watch! I just bought one too. The plugging in of a watch gets old fast. I’m now using my fitbit to measure steps when i workout. Can’t wear that big thing when I’m writing, and it might count clicks too! That would be embarrassing but appropriate for a writer.
I got a Fitbit for Christmas. I like getting the data it collects, but it’s not going to replace my everyday watch. The watch is an easier, quicker glance when I just need to know what time it is!
