My Eco Drives function perfectly...

Never had a problem with my Citizen EcoDrive watches, the two Radio Controlled versions are shown below. My wife owns a couple Citizen watches too. They're not exactly high-end watches. My most problematic watches have always been Tissot. I like their styling but I stopped buying them.

The only possibly snob appeal watch I have is the Tag Heuer that was given to me by my company in 1995. It's probably one of their entry models. It crapped out 15 years ago but I had the internals completely replaced a couple years ago.

The last time we went on a Caribbean cruise trip I bought a cheapie $10 "waterproof" Timex for me and a similar one for my wife. No sense in bringing a good watch and scuffing it up on shore excursions and water activities. My Timex lasted about a year before it went in the trash bin.

Notice the top row watches all show precisely the EXACT same time. These are either
radio controlled and sync'd to WWV/WWVH radio transmissions or get accurate time over Wifi.

None of these are what I would consider snob appeal watches.

Interesting fact: I can barely read the huge red character digital clock in the bedroom at night. My Apple Watch on my writs is legible in the dark w/o my glasses and it also tracks the quality of my sleep along with resting heart rate. The gentle silent alarm that vibrates my wrist will wake me w/o waking my wife.
