Lazarus thread. It seems the 5 day Victorian High Country trip I did some months back was not kind to my Seiko. For a while afterwards it was picking up 7 minutes per day. Too much vibration for it I think.

I was just about to discard it and thought I'd consult Google first to see if it was a common problem. Turns out it was!

I followed the recommended procedure for fixing it without taking it off to be serviced (read: bang on table on back and opposite crown) and miraculously it recovered!

Then I bought a KTM 640.

The watch is OK for a few days then spontaneously needs therapeutic thumping and will no longer tolerate ANY use on ANY motorcycle.

Now on the hunt for something else.

It's a meme

Yep, 1 more for G-Shock. I'm 65 & from my grammar school graduation until my first G-shock I ran through at least a watch per year. I seem to be one of those folks who cannot keep a watch, expensive, cheap, no matter. I've never had a watch last for more than 6-8 months. My first G-Shock lasted 7 years & still looked good & kept perfect time (I did have to buy 2 new bands). The second went 9 years. I'm at 5 years on my third now. They just can't be beat. After 7-8 years per watch I treat myself to a new one rather than send it off for a new battery. I just can't bear to be without one for the time it would take to get it back.
