a Heuer Autavia (a chronograph, automatic (self-winding) date with tacymeter bezel and interesting in that that stem, the winder, is on the 9 o'clock side of the face while the pushers are on the 3 o'clock side) purchased new in 1972 (pre-TAG, all metal, no plastic, no batteries) (sorry I can't post a picture), and a Citizen yachting/sailing watch with analog face and hands but also a digital window for time, day and date, 100th of a second stop watch, 2 count-down timers and 2 alarms (a gift from my much better half for when the Heuer is out being cleaned and calabrated) but the Heuer is the favorite and the default watch.

hey, my watch is an heirloom from my grandfather
It's a 50s or 60s Wakmann triple chrono diver's watch with valjoux 723 movement. I'm not sure of it's worth but it has sentimental value.
These pics aren't my specific watch but it's the same: if you like gears, you'll love this

Well, I only wear digital, because...when you're driving at high speeds and cornering in your alfa...you just don't have that extra time to study one of those fine watches. I also have two pocketwatches...one electric, one windup.

Actually, sean just can't tell which is the second hand and which is the minute hand, which is why he thinks his GTV6 is so fast

Sean - you set yourself up ya' know. driving at high speed is the real/only/best reason for analog time (of day) telling or virtually every instrument on the dash

Wow, my cheap Coleman watch seems so working class now. Still, durable as I could ask for in a sub-$20 watch. I also have a Fossil that DaimlerChrysler pawned off on me for being stupid enough to stick around 10 years and a DaimlerChrysler Swatch from day 1 of the "merger of equals", it was transparent just like the upright, honest merger, and it's yellowed and deteriorated in similar fashion.

cheers,
scott

to which part (the set yourself up part or why analog instruments are usually "better" than digital) as to the first, you have or are assumed to have the benefit(s) of youth and enthusiasm, but..., as to the second part, precision of read-out is seldom necessary. How's that. all kidding aside, us older guys (I'm 57) probably envy you in many ways, and I'm sorry if I came down alittle heavy. If you ever get east (NY City), I'd like to buy you a drink (oh that's right, not for a couple of years yet). just kidding, but I really do enjoy the banter and your taste in cars (Alfas) demonstrates wisdom beyond your years. In my case it took the classic mid-life crisis (divorce and turing 40) so you've got 20+ years more than me to enjoy Alfas.
