    Recommendations for wristwatch "inexpensive"
    From: J Cora

    I am planning on buying an inexpensive wristwatch that will be set to gmt, uct
    and would like to hear what others on the list recommend.  My current wristwatch
    is a suunto vector but is a pain as it has no zero set for seconds and
    really doesnt
    display seconds anyway instead they use a moving 3 block thingy which
    is only an approximation.  One specific thing the watch should have is
    the button
    to start seconds at the wwv minute tone.  Display of time to the
    second is required
    and date is  also desirable with digital display the preference.
    Any other opinions would be welcome but I cant spend
    a lot at this time (under 1 or 2 hundred dollars)
    I use the sextant alone so a stopwatch function would be great but may just get
    that as a separate instrument.
    Note: I have gps but that would be cheating.
