Yesterday morning I took these four watches to a local establishment to have the batteries replaced. Guess the total bill (in Cdn $). They are all waterproof, and replacing the batteries without messing up the gaskets takes some experience and care. Also, three of the four were removed from the straps (and then replaced at the end) and all were reset to the correct date and time.
Yeah four very similar watches. Why so many? Note that all four have Indiglo, coupled with the greenish dials that show the numbers well in bright lights.
- My favourite watch is the Timex Expedition. At one point when I didn't trust anyone to replace the battery properly, I just bought a second one. Standard price is about $35 Cdn.
- The Aqua watch I bought in the UK when the battery in an Expedition gave out. It's not as functional as the Timex Expeditions.
- The Armitron is BIG and easy to read.
