    I didn't like those watches in the 70s and I still don't like them.

    It looks nice, but that's a little too retro for my taste. Does it still take two hands to tell the time just like in the 70s? That gets old pretty fast.

    There's a good reason LCD's quickly replaced LED's it watches.
    1. Can be read without pushing a button first.
    2. Can be read in bright sunlight.
    3. Doesn't look like a prop Gil Gerard wore in "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century."[/list=1]

    Paul, you forgot to mention that LCD watches also have a vastly superior battery life.

    Sorry, I never stuck with an LED watch long enough to run down the battery. [​IMG]

    Geez, they sure are making it clear that it's the 'real' deal:
