Mum has been going on about getting a new watch for ages, so I'd like to surprise her with something nice for Christmas, but I'm having problems finding anything with her specific requirements - stretch band, large clear face, and either self-winding or battery-powered. Budget is fairly flexible - specific details are inside. [more inside]

I have a very very niche job. I've been doing it for over ten years now and have made about $28,000 per year. Because of my experience, I was called in for a meet and greet. It was going to lead nowhere. So, I pretty much blew it off, and blew the next one off, and showed up to the third because it was on my way home. They hired me and gave me a job that pays about $786,000 per year. I was told that they had reservations about me and told me they were bothered by the fact that I wore "denim with unpatched holes" at the interview. I didn't even think I was being considered. This is very unreal. And now I will have a job that pays me more in my bimonthly check than my last year's entire gross. I will be working with a different clientele, and my position will have more prestige than previously. So how do I dress? [more inside]

I'm looking for a wrist watch with these features: Digitial, water proof/resistant, an easy way to monitor my or someone else's heart rate in an emergency situation, and a timer that I can easily set for 2 to 5 minutes so I know when to administer additional meds if my dog has a seizure. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.
I am looking for an analog wristwatch for my husband's birthday. I know nothing about watches; this is more of a meaningful/nostalgic gift for both of us. Price: let's say up to the $250 range. Anyone have model suggestions or tips for finding one? [more inside]

I'd like to find a San Francisco based antique watch repair shop that does impeccable work. Price is not an issue, as the watch is the only thing I have from my great-grandmother and is of the utmost sentimental value. The wristwatch is silver, with no visible manufacturer's mark, and is approximately 85 years old. The face needs cleaning and the mechanism likely is in decent shape, but needs cleaning as well.

Looking for a watch that tells near-perfect time, doesn't require winding or battery replacement, has a comfortable band in hot and cold weather and will last at least 10 years. It just needs to show the time and preferably the date. It's either got to be something very special, or at the lowest price which meets the above standards. Style and uncomplicatedness a bonus.

I would like to have a portable device for keeping track of the time that is not a wristwatch (I seem to inevitably lose all wristwatches) but can be stored and accessed with ease. I was thinking maybe something I could store in my wallet. Any suggestions or ideas?
Why do some people wear their watch face against the inside of their wrist, rather than on top? Is it cultural, a way of being unique, or just the preference of which way one likes to flick one’s wrist?
