    This is the best watch ever made. It's a La Crosse Technology WT981L atomic watch. It blows all these other watches away in terms of accuracy.

    The dual readout digital - analog watch... because sometimes you're just too drunk to tell time

    I have this watch, on a brown crocodile strap. Unfortunately, I couldn't take a good picture of it on my wrist.

    Wait, so that 11 year old kid didn't actually kill you? To think we have a 5 page thread about it!

    very nice. I might buy a portuguese in the near future. What happened did a truck ran over it?

    I had to sell it.The watch cost £19,000 which is almost a years wage for me and I could not afford to keep it.When I bought it I was single and living rent free at home.I now have a son a wife and a house.

    Accuracy is, to me, the most important aspect of a watch. All La Crosse watches are deadly accurate. They don't lose time. You can't say the same about a Rolex.
