I've been looking for a simple elegant atomic (radio controlled) solar watch forever. Casio makes some, see for example:

But the watch is cluttered and most of the watch casing is plastic.

This one by Citizen is better:

I just wish it was simpler looking without all those city names around the rim.


Paul, check out this black Casio Solar Atomic Wave Recepter. Stunning: http://www.ebay.com/itm/EQW-M1100-Solar-Atomic-Wave-Ceptor-by-Casio-Edifice-F1-Red-Bull-Vettel-Webber-GP-/150656122656?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item2313cdff20


I think these watches, Vostoks, gives the most bang for the buck (or the ruble). http://www.smirs.com/en/russian-watches/vostok-watches/voctok-komandirskie-watches/
I have several Vostoks, both automatics and non-automatics. While the leather bands aren's very durable, the watches seem to be.

By the way, if someone would like a map of the London underground that's also a radio, here it is:


Aeromatic watches are available quartz or mechanical, including automatics. I have one and I like it very much. I love the styles----and the movements seem pretty good to me----well worth the price, which is usually between one or two hundred bucks----sometimes less on sale/close-out.


That "Tube" radio is a thing of beauty, Dylan!
