    Re: Choice of timepiece

    David,
    
    I too navigate with a Timex.  Mine is a Timex "Indiglo" which cost
    about $15 -- if I remember right.  It consistently looses about one
    second in four months.  Timepieces are one of the ways CN has changed
    in the age of GPS.  You can always check your watch against the GPS
    time.  And there is no need for a mate to write down the sight time at
    your call of "mark".  You can quickly look at the seconds digits
    without any appreciable loss of time.  No need to keep a chronometer
    log and make watch corrections.
    
    Welcome to CN in the GPS age,
    
    JK
