Watch this

No that’s not proper English in this case, I know. It’s should actually have read ‘this watch’ but that sounds a bit silly as a post title, doesn’t it?

Anyway, what I wanted to share with you is that as of now I’m the proud owner of a very nice watch. My dad brought it with him from his holiday and gave it to me for taking care of the place and all obstacles this time, the times before and the next couple of years ;-) When he handed it over this afternoon I had to wonder how often he was planning to go away again, because this is not just any watch.

It’s a Citizen Eco-drive Calibre 2100, which means that it recharges itself using solar energy. Beneath the face of the watch is a solar panel which recharges a battery that can store enough energy in the battery to last more than half a year in total darkness. That’s pretty amazing if you ask me.

Next to that feature it hasn’t got many rings & bells and stuff on it, something I appreciate very much. I don’t like those ‘twenty five functions in one’ kind of watches, though I know I did when I was still a kid. But back then everything had to have some high gadget value I guess. :-)

It’s also water resistant up to two hundred meters so when it’s raining really really hard I have to park the car close to my home … *grin*

I’m just so happy with this one, it matches exactly my basic needs and taste in watches. It’s a awesome watch.

Thanks dad :-D
