    Default Ok Watch Hounds - Eco Drive or Kinetic?

    My cousin is going to Hong Kong next summer and I am going to have him pick me up a watch. I want to get either a Citizen Eco Drive or Seiko Kinetic diver's or sport style. I have been intrigued by both the Kinetic and Eco Drives and have owned both Seiko and Citizen and love both brands. My Citizen divers watch I bought for $45 in Hong Kong about 30 years ago is still a go to watch.

    Anybody have either and can make any recommendations? Thanks. Looking at these for now:

    Tag Heuer Automatic.

    Seriously, Go Eco. They're the lowest maint watch out there and its easier to charge than a Kinetic. There are some 15 year old Eco watches out there still going that've never been cracked open for repairs or battery replacement.

    How is your vision? If it is declining I would opt for the 1st watch. Too much background noise on the 2nd watch.

    I have been wearing a titanium Ecp Drive for the last 10+ years as my daily work watch. Never had a problem with it.

    Sounds like the Eco it is. And in terms of buying in Hong Kong, my cousin is a rower on a dragon boat and they got invited to the world championships in Hong Kong. They will get dusted but are going for the travel to Hong Kong. Some team members are from there so he will be going to reputable places to make his purchases so no "copy watches" - LOL!

    Good luck to your cousin. My neighbor used to do dragon boats but now he's moved on to other boat racing.
