Don't try it on if you're not serious because you'll walk out with it

Ha, it's like the car bug: once you're in, it's hard to get out ... though the nice thing is, they last a lifetime. Ideally buy one for an important event or milestone - super fun to look back on years later.

Hmm yes.

I need one now since the new job won't allow phones or smart watches so I need a dummy watch, to which I prefer digital ones.

Not really sure what I'd buy yet but I need to look into it.

Sound like you need something rugged and at least semi-digital. Seems like the hybrid analog/digital GShocks are pretty popular right now. I can't really wear them cause my wrists are too small and they're like 46mm. The Pelagos I mentioned is definitely a big spend and not digital, but a very modern and kind of industrial if you're into analog watches

The ultimate tool watch for the ultimate tool… love it

I've got one coming to an AD near me to try on; the LHD version, which is really cool on its own but I'm pretty set on a black RHD. Whether I walk out with an order on one will depend on the discount the AD will offer me. They're too easy to get at a significant discount thru grey market or used for me to stomach paying full retail. Tho 10% off would probably move the needle for me, then I'd be getting it at sticker price out the door w/ warranty

What about a gold Casio? They're cheap af and could get away with the gold since I see the Casio as a bit of a joke watch. I'm somewhat tempted

I've a Seiko Samurai PADI, the crown wheel or whatever you call it has gotten stuck so I can't adjust the time (it runs slow). JDM quality lol

Seiko samurai is an awesome looking watch, have you ever had it serviced?

Nice! They can be a little hard to find as they’re very popular right now (hence why g shock is limiting 1 per household). People are modding them to resemble an AP Royal Oak with aftermarket cases
