Hawk, I have one of those Victorinix Chrono Classics with about 76 complications that you have to be nuclear physicist to set properly. Trust me - there's a YouTube tutorial, and I still have to glance at it every now and again. Use the video, there's certainly no shame in it.

Is beautiful but hell, I can’t even use my Tissot Touch without referencing the manual every time I wear it.

Okay - this is the official manual:

Citizen themselves refer to the Movement as U680, so that’s some thing less tedious than a video!

I had one of those and decided it was just too busy as I did the Breitling Montbrilliant that got me into collecting. No use for about 80 of the readouts either.

Ive always said I will be officially old when I sell the Trans Am. Not being able to set a watch isnt even close.

Ha, yes, that I can understand as always being the go to guy myself. Kills me when I cant do something myself that I used to do. I think you are probably far from elderly.
