I'm embarassed to admit I've been wearing a Coke watch for about 10 years now. Its lasted an incredible length of time considering it was a giveaway.

I need a new watch.
Nothing wrong with that. I had a mickey mouse watch that I wore for 6 years. It wasn't until I was 15 that I decided to switch to a more adult watch

I'm wearing the same Ironman Timex I have been since grade 10, changed the battery several times, and the straps even more. But it still works fine.

I'm totally a Fossil guy. I've got two Fossil's, one I got for Christmas last year that I don't wear a huge amount because it's slightly bulky and the other I've had for the last 6 years. I love it to death, I even smashed the crystal on it and had that replaced I love this watch so much. No pics though.

I LOVE my Nixon. And i get a lot of compliments on it. It was perfect for traveling too because it looks good and rugged but at the same time you are not a walking target either.

You can get them for a few bucks off on Ebay too!

This pick does not do it justice but:


I also have a more formal Swiss Army that i love.

Can you only by those Nixon watches online? or is there a store in Calgary that sells them where you can try them on? I have Skinny little wrists so there are very few watches that actually look good on me, but I do like the look of those nixon watches.

I have a Kenneth Cole watch the my gf bought me for a grad present that I love. I can't find a pic of it though, its pretty simple looking.

Right now, just a simple Timex, as I am only a meer University student, but one day it will be a Rolex. I'm just hoping I don't get it for quite some time... if you know what I mean.

Watches? Did somebody mention watches?

Here's one of my watch boxes:

I own a pretty expensive watch, but don't know exactly where it is at the moment. I suppose I'll go looking next time I have to dress fancy.

Owned several wrist watches over the years, but whenever I have they always end up on the night table permanetly after a month or two, just not a wrist watch kinda guy I suppose.

I received this Tissot watch as a gift for organizing a hockey tournament - very pleased with it:

Hadn't been much of a watch wearing guy, but I decided I needed one for my Euro-trip this summer.

I went to the Bay a few months ago and bought an awesome Fossil watch for about 80 bucks.


Looks a bit like this. Both the strap and the face are slightly different. The face on my watch can alternate between black and red (fitting for a Flames fan, ain't it?). I normally change the colour of the face after every Flames loss. Nerd. I know. Don't worry.

I'm like you, Kermit. I'm a Fossil guy. Although, it's really the only watch I've owned in the last while. I love it though.

hmm...longsuffering...those watches look "interesting."

I do like your submariner though...7750 movement?

Oh and your panerai is sweet!

longsuffering...very nice collection.
Been looking for a vintage Seamaster like that for a while.
I had, and sold, a Bond Seamaster to fund another Omega (PO)...but plans for that are longer down the line then I hoped....should've kept the Seamaster in the meantime

Bruce and Browna - thanks for the comments.

Bruce, Rolex makes all their own movements, so no 7750 in it. I think the Rolex caliber is a 3135.

Browna - Planet Oceans are awesome watches. Definitely pull the trigger on one. Have you ever thought about a pre-owned watch? You can probably tell that I'm into watches in a big way, so I frequent a watch enthusiasts site. You can pick up a very lightly used PO, with boxes and papers, for less than $2K (US). Even with import duties, its cheaper than buying locally.

PM me if you'd like more details.

If I didn't recently receive a rolex daytona 116509 as a gift, I would not have gotten into watches. I'm still a newbie at this so you'll have to excuse me . I can't believe I actually recognize 90% of your collection. Wow, that collection there is pretty crazy. Your rolex and panerai alone is enough for a downpayment on a house.

I just recently bought myself a PAM 125.
