I was very happy with the first couple of watches which simply wore out (broken thingys that hold the band), or met an untimely end. (Flying off my wrist when I had my arm out the car window on a very hot day with no AC.) But these last two watches have not been all that good. I suspect they were made in China. They not only don't keep good time (something you expect from a Timex), but they eat batteries for lunch. The first watches wouldn't need a battery for 2-3 years. I've had my current battery for less than six months and it's time for a change.
In fact, it's time for a BIG change. This time out, I want something a little more feminine. Maybe a watch with a bracelet band. It's still got to be easy to see the time on the fly, but it's also got to be a bit prettier.
I haven't even begun to look for one and have a feeling I may not just be able to walk into a store like Target and say, "That one." But ... there's a new watch in my future.
What kind of watch do you wear?
