Careful with those. I bought 2 a few years back and they were OK for awhile and then they died. New batteries didn't work and it isn't easy or cheap to fix them. Sometimes impossible. Don't pay a lot and enjoy them while they last.

You guys know me too well. At least I'm predictable.

I have had the below Timex variation of Whocares' desired model for about 10 years. I'm lucky it runs and keeps good time.

Foghorn makes a good point: Most Electric movement watches (not to be confused with "Electronic" movements) are fussy and are mondo expensive to repair. Only high-end Hamilton models (Ventura, Vega, Altair, etc.) and tip top tier brands that flirted with Electric movements are worth the cost unless you have a personal interest beyond an unrecoupable investment. Despite any condition claim, always expect the worse with an internet purchase and hope for the best.

Excuse the bad lighting. The dial is a nice steel blue.
