The Joy of Practical Birthday Gifts

Happy Birthday to me, although it’s technically not my birthday until next weekend. My father-in-law told my wife today that he was proud of her for getting me a practical gift for my birthday. Yesterday we hit up the mall and stopped by Zales to pick me up a new watch.

My New Watch

It’s a Citizen Eco-Drive (the one pictured here) and I really like it. A big part of why I am going to continue to like it is that its powered by any light source that hits it and I will never have to buy another watch battery again. That’s so nice. I hate looking at my watch only to find that it stopped running sometime around three o’clock in the morning.

But now, thanks to my lovely wife, I won’t have to worry about that anymore.

So, thanks honey. I love you!

Now to buy something impractical for myself. :o)

    Very nice watch. I have a solar powered watch as well, and it links to the atomic clock so I don’t have to worry about setting the time either. That doesn’t always mean that I am on time though.

    But what if you’re locked in Buffalo Bill’s cellar? It’ll never work there.

    Very nice! I actually have several watches with dead batteries…I should replace the battery instead of buying a new watch!
