Which Watch?

Postby gclark8 » Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:56 am

I started a similar topic on the Guzzi Forum in USA, it proved to be a very useful resource.

One item which came up was a bike clock. As well as keeping the time it may be useful for cadence counting as it has a sweep second hand.

How about a pebble watch.

Never miss another important message etc while cycling. :shock:

In 2013 and the last decade and more, we have "bike computers" that have cadence, stopwatch, speed, mileage as well as a clock built in. Oral cadence counting is decidedly old school. ;)

If you can get into the city, I'd suggest visiting The Time Shop in Trinity arcade.
The proprietor is a watchmaker, not just a retailer, so if there are technical issues related to the motorcycle then he should be able to give you valid advice.
I bought a cheap and light weight watch there with a face that's similar to the stem cap items pictured above, and it has given me no trouble in 15 years of regular use, but I don't ride a motorcycle.

Having the clock on the bike proved its value yesterday.
As I approached a 40kph School Zone at 60kph a quick glance at the clock showed the time of 09:20, immediately dropped the speed to sub 40, saved a rather large fine! :shock: Prior to having the clock, I would have stayed at 60kph.

So that's the bike taken care of, now a little something for me. :wink:
With Metronet in the offing, time for a little train spotting, so a Swiss Railway Watch is the go! :idea:
