But the watch was not getting a lot of wrist time.
I’ll admit it. It took me a while to appreciate quartz watches, especially ones that take batteries. I have a few Citizen Eco-Drives, a few Seiko Solars, a Seiko Kinetic, some Casio Solars and the Breitling B-50. But this is the only quartz in my collection that takes a battery (the Breitling B-50 is rechargeable).
