I am so happy that I finally registered. I am 35 years old, prior Air Force veteran and have been overseas from 1999 to 2012. I just got back last year and went through some depressing times when I came back here. After the military I had a great job working as a contractor overseas and have since came back to America and had to start over. My current job pays half of what I used to make and I had no hobbies to pursue. However, ever since I was in the military I had developed a passion for watches. Mostly G SHOCK, because I will be honest, when you are out on the side of mountain in Seoul Korea practicing for war with North Korea, or working in Camp Sather Iraq in hot and industrial conditions, that G SHOCK just never seemed to get scratched and didn't irritate your sweaty wrist in super hot environments either. Just a very practical watch. My passion for watches started when I was about 10 years old. My father was a military man and I don't know what it is about the military, but if you have ever served you just tend to love watches, flashlights and survival in general. But, back to my point. I was about 10 years old and my Dad had a Casio watch with about 55 alarms, lights and buttons. I was hooked. I finally received a wind up military watch by Timex for Christmas. Of course, since it wasn't digital it wasn't "cool" so I finally bought me a Timex calculator watch. My gosh, that watch was my world. Looking back the Timex military wind up would be a perfect watch for me now, I would really, really love to have it back. I say all of that to say this. Watches, this site and the people on it, really helped through depressed times when I came back here. I never knew I had such a passion for them until I had nothing left and was desperate for a new, lifelong hobby. Watches are so important to me. Time is relative to weather, nature and it's patterns...even planetary rotation and space. Time is deep, you can never learn enough about it and watches contain all of this within a little case. Amazing, simply amazing. With that, I am looking for a automatic watch with a world map on it, or a map of America. I would also love for it to have luminous hands. If not, perhaps a automatic watch with world time. Or a military style automatic or wind up watch. If any of you know of any for $150 or less and WITHOUT a see through case back, please let me know. I am going to start collecting watches and as my job starts to pay better or I find a better one, I really see myself buying a nice watch to pass down to my son one day. If no one can help, that's fine. I have been scouring the web for months now (looking for a watch with map, or world time etc.)and will just continue to do so. Sorry what I wrote was so long. I have enjoyed this site for a year and just wanted to express to everyone why watches mean so much to me. Thanks to all of you ahead of time.
