I'm still wearing the same watch I posted about in 2011:

(Looky there, I'm stalking myself )

It's a Seiko Divers, 200m WR, high end quartz (accuracy within 20 sec/yr), perpetual calendar, 6 yr battery life, offset crown, with a medium size SS case and double locking bracelet. The medium diameter case and offset crown are good for me as its a short throw from my wrist bone to the back of my hand when flexed. The crown doesn't abrade me. I wear it on top of the left wrist.

When the battery ran out of juice, I sent it to the Seiko USA service center for a fresh one, cleaning, and pressure testing. I'm hoping for another 6 yrs out of the watch. It's very convenient, I only have to change the setting to and from DST.

This is the watch that was ordered from Japan and rode out the last big quake and tsunami siting at the Tokyo airport for a few days during shipment.
