The thinnest just might be "Citizens" "Eco-Drive". Its an electric watch with some slick technology that does not require batteries. The power comes from a capacitor I beleive and is charged by solar.

I purchased one about 10 years ago for $400.00 because it was the thinnest at that time and, I beleive, still is. They were relatively new technology at the time. I just don't care for all the razzle dazzle of the sports watches that they have today. To me they look bulky and ugly and have way to many options that are never used. All I want out of a watch is accurate time.

It has not missed a beat in 10 years (not once), it has never needed any repairs, (even the stock watch band) and the front crystal still looks new in spite of some heavy abuse at times.

Google it and shop around to find the best price. You can find them cheaper now a days than I did then. If you want.

How thick/thin is it? I love thin watches.

I've owned my Movado for 20+ years. It is 3.6mm measured with a digital caliper.

Two Nickle stacked are 3.7mm thick.

But, mine is no where near the thinnest which I believe is 1.98mm thick.

Well, I stand corrected then. Mine is not the thinnest. But, it may have been close 10 years ago.

I just measured mine and its just a hair over 6mm at the thickest point.

But, I am very impressed at its durability over the years. Its never required any service at all in over 10 years.

I'm in the other spectrum, completelly the opposite from Dennis.
I do quite a bit of outdoor stuff so the gadgetry is useful for me.
Appart from that I have pretty big hands/wrists so a small watch kind of looks odd in my wrist (or may be is my perception after years of wearing big ones...)

Intelligence chases me, but I'm a lot faster! Fernando

Don't really care about the thinnest watch.
But I do love Omega watches.

I have a thing for watches but haven't bought a new one in a while. I have a Tag Heuer SEL series and a Citizen Blue Angels Nav watch. Still waiting for the wife to buy me a Breitling Everyday I use a variety of Casio digitals.

Funny. I haven't worn a watch in 3 or 4 years ever since I started carrying a cell phone around with me everywhere. I used to wear a watch constantly.

It's seems like the latest trend is to have a GIANT watch with lots of diamonds and such. I like those thin watches you're mentioning. Looks good.

I used to wear a watch daily but when I got into the sheet metal trade I stopped wearing watches since all the ones I had were too nice to wear to a construction job. After wearing them daily for years my wrist felt naked without it, similar to when I forget my wallet. Now, after 5 years of not wearing one, it is odd to wear one again. The nicest one I was ever able to get my hands on was a Tag and I loved it. I do miss having a collection of nice watches to choose from every day.

Imagine all those those expensive watches were all same prices as the timex at $20. I would still wear my Movaro at $20. I often wonder if some of those who wear them to show off, Rolex for example, would still wear them.

I'm sure some of them are genuinely attracted to it's styling. But, I suspect it will be a small percentage.

Unfortunately, I will never find out.

When I read that I looked down at my 23 year old Breitling on my wrist and wondered how anyone could possibly choose to wear anything else.
