After my shower this morning, ready to go for another hard working day, in the base where I am in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria, I did put my watch on my wrist and... not working !

Fortunately this was not one of my nice and beautiful japanese automatics.

Cause when I go for work I always bring some cheap watches.
I came in the 7th November with a fake Omega chrono automatic that I had since long and a Swatch Irony Chrono. I don't like chronos, that is why I took them for work.
I broke the fake Omega after 2 weeks : take a 20' container against a fake Omega, guess which one is the winner !
And this morning this f*****g "Made in Swiss" Swatch is out of order !

So now I'll try to get another automatic fake to finish my rotation.
By the way, do you think I should plan getting a G-shock to come to work ?

At the end of the day, the loss of these watches is no big deal but I feel like... naked without a watch on my wrist !
Do you feel the same when no watch on your wrist ?

... this metallic blue, like it.
As working in Africa I was thinking of a tough solar model so I guess a bit more than 25 bucks.
