On this day in 2004 i rose at 3AM left my wife and children sleeping in our rented gite and made my way to Omaha beach to be on it at Sunrise , i remember wearing this watch as i used the alarm facility to back up my phone alarm , It was an amazing if somewhat sombre day during which i met and chatted too many veteran's , sadly each year there are fewer and fewer.....We will remember them.

Seiko 'Caesar' chrono. Based on the 7T92 movement. There was also a kinetic non chrono version of this watch.

Morning :)

Lot of great watches today :thumbsup:, now i'm about to lower the tone, considerably. :laughing2dw:

Away to do some work in the back garden, and after reading @Always"watching" Kahuna thread, thought I would dig out an old watch that was a trusty work watch back in the day, Got it in the 90s for approx £20/£30 and was a great servant and took a lot of punishment at my work, but kept going, although the original velcro strap is done, hasn't been on the wrist for a long time, but changed the battery and still ticking. Fine for working in the garden on a Sunday. If it & I keep ticking may make the seniors thread in a few years. :laughing2dw:

Thinking that quartz watches never need a service is just plain wrong. If you have potentially a 40 year battery in a quartz watch of decent quality it will need serviced (probably about every 10 years or so.. has anyone got an Omega quartz?).

At the price it cost, don't think i'll be paying for a service, if it was a lot more expensive then i probably would, not sure about every 10 years like, plus tend to use good quality batteries anyway, they don't leak the same as the cheap ones often do, some of those cheap multipacks are often leaking before you've even had time to use them.
