  • I need a very simple wrist watch, one that just tells time. I don't want an alarm or a stop watch or a calculator. I don't want to have to dig out the instruction booklet whenever Daylights Savings Time comes or goes. Any recommendations on something so simple even an idiot like me could use it?

Citizen makes some very nice simple watches:


I own one and love it -- very stylish. A bonus with the Citizen watches is that they are solar powered -- you will never have to replace a battery.

Always been a fan of the Casio MQ24-7B2 Analog Watch - cheap, simple, durable and looks good. I believe there is a Cool Tools write up on it.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
