ICWT, I forgot to mention my Citizen Eco-Drive, which is the watch I wear when I expect to get dirty. However, right now the strap is broken.

Did you ever service your Breitling emergency yet? I heard it's suppose to be very expensive to get a service on that watch.
I also looked at the Breitling emergency once, just this version instead Image and what made me decide not to get it, was the expensive service price, and that it's not waterproof, which doesn't make sense, since most of the time airplanes are over water. I don't know about your model if thats waterproof?


Mines water resistant to 100m. I have taken it diving before with no problems. I havent taken it in for service yet...I need to soon though :s

A watch is on the list of big purchases to be made, if only I could find one that looks good on my somewhat slender wrist.

Cool, I wear mine casually more like an everyday watch, mostly in school, going out, etc. Though I can't believe your strap broke the strap seems and feels very durable to me. Here's a picture of my, I purchased the dark one.

Murakami, I have a small wrist, too. Any of the watches I mentioned above might be of interest to you. Also consider a vintage Rolex or Omega. Back in the day they made them smaller. Today, everybody wants a big watch, 40 mm or larger in diameter. I think my Omega DeVille is about 37 mm, and my Mondaine is a bit smaller. I think my Longines had been discontinued when I bought it (at a discount), probably because the model wasn't big enough to sell in today's market.

ICWT, my Eco-Drive is the military-style model. I think it's a big smaller than yours above. I like the style of yours better. Mine came with a green canvas strap that was kind of flimsy. I replaced it with a leather strap, and that's the one that eventually broke.

thanks for the input, jlam and jeffysdad. I think I will be heading into downtown to run some errands, I will see if I can fit in time to check out some of the recommendations.

Also - has anyone ever seen a TokyoFlash watch? Not the most practical if your goal is simply knowing the time but they have some pretty innovative designs.

Yeah I've seen a Tokyo Flash watch they're pretty cool and once you learn how to tell the time on the flash watch it's functional and most likely only you wil be able to read the time and no one else. Though I think it's more of a fashion statement.
