Looking for wrist watch with particular features

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.

San Francisco Antique Watch Repair

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 does the basics extremely 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.

When is a watch not a watch?

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?

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?
