    Re: Choice of timepiece

    I have navigated around the world with a $30 Timex Ironman from Walmart.  I am on my 4th or fifth watch in about 10 years.  I check it against the radio time tick about once a month.  I am rarely off more than a second in that time.

    I am new to celestial navigation and need to choose a timepiece.  A
    totally accurate 24-hr digital watch (wrist or on lanyard) that can be
    set to the second and can store and recall, or at least freeze the
    display until recorded, a marked time for sight, would be ideal. If it
    happens to have a thermometer function that would be a plus but not a
    deciding factor. Do you have one you love?
