Already some goodies on here. I'll just add my latest pre-owned watch; this Timex Expedition Alarm model, bought for a fiver and unfortunately in need of a new strap. I shall probably hang on to the badly worn original strap and I am looking forward to having a go at getting the alarm(s) working. It has two alarm settings - for an alarm over 60 minutes and for an alarm under 60 minutes - and an Indigo lit dial for dark occasions. I think that the battery is running low because the Indiglo light is not working:

This is my small quartz collection . . . . .

Every one of them is very well made, and robust to the point of being almost bomb-proof.

Just touching 4.5mm and 1982- my 18th birthday pressie - erm, actually this is my daughter's 18th birthday pressie, NOS from a retired watchmaker from Florence!  Mine is more - battered (see below).

thats lovely makes my zenith look clunky! What mvmt? looks about 3.5mm. i'll have to go and compare the zen to my old seikos. I've got a zen thats 4mm that old gold one you see me with a lot, but that seiko looks really slim.
