I have the PRC200 chronograph. White face.  200m water resistance...  quite impressive.  No rotating bezel though.  I still really like that watch.  Itís actually a pretty watch...  it can be quite dressy.

My bad. Mine is a PRS200. It has a face like the Seastar crono but is a 20 Bar watch.

I have been thinking about buying one of these Citizen smartwatches. They're very expensive normally, but they can be found on eBay for cheaper.  I think they're very nice looking. The second one is also available with a blue face and yellow second-hands. Like other hybrids, they have less functionality than smartwatches with a full display, but conversely you don't look like a nerd walking around with a video game on your wrist.  Like other hybrids, they have much lower power consumption than full display smartwatches and don't need to be charged as often. These particular Citizen smartwatches don't need to be charged, period. They have Citizen's "Eco Drive" hidden solar panel. The face itself is a solar panel and ambient light charges the watch.

 I think these are very handsome. However, they are large and might be a bit too big for my little wrist.

Kimmy that gold one with the blue face is absolutely boss.

I can't tell, I was just going by what the article said.  It mentions that most presidents (Trump being the exception, obviously) don't wear expensive watches.  Gaudy displays of wealth don't focus-group well, or something.  Joe apparently doesn't care what the focus-group thinks of his watch. He likes his Ray Bans, he likes his Corvette, and he likes his Omega. I can relate to that.  I like nice things as well, and while I can't afford things as nice as Joe, I would totally wear them if I could.

Seems like Joe likes nice things but he is hardly ostentatious. Ray Bans aren't Cartier, a stainless Seamaster isn't a gold Rolex and a Corvette isn't a Bugatti Veyron. All or some of the stuff he has is attainable for most people if they really want them.

Although his is 67 Vette would be worth some serious cash these days depending on condition, engine, originality etc. Wonder when he bought it.

I agree with Graham....  blue faced one is nice.  Youíre right about the size of them...  it might look a bit awkward...  but maybe not.

My Citizen eco drive solar field-style watch has been going for years...  itís a total beater.  But it never stops.  There is a small issue with the day indicator being in Hebrew (I think itís Hebrew), but sometimes itís in English.

Other than that, itís a workhorse.  I think itís nice looking too with orange numerals on a black dial and case.  It was cheap.  Very good value.  I got it cuz it looks like the much more expensive Bell & Ross field watches, which cost thousands.

Justin Trudeau - IWC Regulateur

Heís sporty but suave, and his watch follows suit. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, is oft-voted the most stylish politician in the world, and his watch attests to the accolade. IWCís Portuguese Regulateur is unique in the fact that it shows the hours, minutes and seconds on three different dials Ė design technique adopted usually by marine chronometers or clocks in observatories.

In this way, the watch stands apart from the crowd Ė just as Trudeau does. Many would be uncomfortable with how it works, but yet he understands it Ė a proficiency many would doubtlessly be heartened by. Trudeau has a silver example and, with a 46-hour power reserve and strength-coated sapphire front and back, it is a watch ready for anything


Trudeau's IWC is pretty darn nice.

Cool watch, not the easiest to read at a glance.

No, it's a bit of an odd one.  I wouldn't want one as it would take me 30 seconds to tell the time...   that would be embarrassing if someone is asking you the time!

It's only worn for show.

Agreed to a degree... isn't that why any watch is worn?   Good looking watch though.

Where I disagree is that the watch is quite interesting horologically.   Some people appreciate that.
