Linux After about a year of work, the ArchLinux distribution now offers a variant running on the FreeBSD kernel. Says the developer, "Why would I do this? If like me, you enjoy FreeBSD and love it, but also like the philosophy behind Arch Linux, which is a fast, lightweight, optimized distro, I figured why not combine the both. Even though you could just do it on FreeBSD using the ports, not everyone wants to compile." This now puts Arch in the same category as Debian with Debian GNU/KFreeBSD, which offers a Debian userland on top of a FreeBSD kernel.

First, why not consider not wearing a watch at all? Clocks are everywhere, for one on your computer screen, mobile phone, car, on the wall, etc...

If you do want one, go for the Casio FW-91W. It's got its own Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casio_F91W

It's cheap, runs years on a battery. Features an alarm, hourly chime, light, 24/12 notation. What I like about it that it's very light and small. So it's easy to wear, no problems with clothes, doesn't get in the way and you're less likely to hit anything with it.

Like I said, it's cheap, so if you destroy it the financial loss is small. You can buy several for the price of one average priced watch.
