Nice collection. Do they live by a window? Most of mine do, but winter in the NE can be rough with so little daylight. Every so often I make sure they get a blast on sunny days!

What the hell?

Where are the damn Invicta's?

So you have Casio, Seiko and Citizen but nary an Invicta?

Hater!





















Nice collection of solars though.

Thanks for the compliments. No Invicata watches!

These live near a window in a makeshift watch box, which has a smoke tinted top. The two Citizen Chronograph watches have charge indicators, the bottom left typically is at L2 in the early morning, by 0900 with the lid closed on the box it moves to L1, which is a full charge. The G-Shock watches are always fully charged. So the tinted top is not interfering with keeping them charged when not in use.

The Seiko solar chrono is an excellent watch. Well worth picking up

Thanks, I'm liking it more and more. I'm also hooked on some of the new G-Shocks, I have a feeling there's one in the not so distant future for me if the price is right.

Impressive. Love the use of foam pipe insulation to hold your watches. Consider idea stolen.
Thanks for sharing.

Haven't picked one up but I've held one on both the strap and bracelet not bad.
[b]I just wasted ten minutes reading that thread, what a total bag of shit

about the watches I buy and wear.

Nice collection I've had my eye on the Citizen on the bottom right corner for a while.

Another potentially cheaper option (during the Summer)

Water noodles (thinner hollow core version, can easily cut to width and on the radius to match your wrist)

Edit: I want to emphasize that you cut the noodle not your wrist. If you cut your wrist Horse Feathers Inc. (a division of Kramerica Industries) will not be held responsible.
