This is my everyday watch:


I have an old Omega for special occasions.


I'd like to upgrade to the Omega Seamaster, but that's a couple years away.

That's a pretty slick watch, TB.

I've always like with Breitling Headwind. Unfortunately they don't make that maodel, and even more unfortunately I don't have the $$$ to buy a watch of that quality. But I do like them.

I swear if you are watch hunting, Vegas is the place to go. I doubt there are any deald, but every Casino seemed to have a high end watch shop.

This is mine. Sorry about the size, I got it as a gift from work.

I use pocket watches ... I have a Caravelle and an older Arnex which I've had since high school. I use pocket watches because I can't handle wrist watches ... they're either pulling the hair on my wrist if i use a metal band, or they stink if I use a leather strap. Plus they always get caught on things. Plus I'm a 40 year old hippie and I'm "not into time man".

Hey ... this is a public board. You shouldn't show pictures of watches doing "that" around here.

The panarai on a skinny arm is hilarious. It is too huge for me.

I bought this one:

That is the watch I wear. But I have a dark brown strap. It is awsome.

I don't see why there's so much love for nixon watches. If your gonna buy a watch buy a watch brand and not a fashion brand.
