    Default Watches

    Here's my current list.

    Android DME T-100
    Android DME Maxjet Skeleton
    Both Androids
    Orient "Yellow" Mako
    Casio Pathfinder
    Edifice ED560D
    Edifice "Black Label" EQS500C

    The Pathfinder and Black Label are my work watches. The others get rotated around.

    I'm eyeing a Prometheus Baiji, Prometheus Signatura, Suunto Core and Molarity MZ-78 to add to the collection.

    What watch/watches do you wear? What's on your list?

    I have two that I wear daily. No real preference.
    First is a Seiko Kinetic, nothing special.
    Second is a Rolex Daytona that was a gift from my Grandmother a few years back.

    Nice heirloom John.

    I looked at the Citizens, but ended up with the Edifice and Pathfinder (both are solar and dual time zone; Pathfinder is multiband 5 atomic). Rubber straps are a must when you jump out of planes.

    Here's an illum shot of the T100.

    Oris BC4 Pointer Day is my usual watch. I've also got a Suunto Core, a Hamilton X-Wind, and a couple others floating around in the mail at any given time (when I'm bored on the road I troll watch forums looking for good deals on used stuff and flip the ones I'm not wearing). It's a hobby, even if I suck at it compared to some of these guys with like 15 Omegas.

    Here's the Oris:

    I have a Citizen Skyhawk A-T titanium which I absolutely love and wear every day. The time zone feature is used a lot since I travel so much.

    I also have a Honda watch given to me for the 2005 IRL championship and it is actually a Honda branded Casio.

    That's the daily... I LOVE this watch. The crystal is still scratch free, three years later, and no battery to replace. I never have to adjust the time, either, as long as I wear it often enough to keep it wound.

    I also have a classic stainless /black museum face Movado for fancier occasions.

    The wife and I are getting 10yr anniversary gifts for each other in 2 months.
    I think I'm going leaning towards a Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887. I'm looking for a simple-ish watch, nothing overly busy/complicated to view.

    The Breitling Navitimer World is my everyday watch. The Bulova is my backup.

    I have a few Movado's I wear now and then. I prefer my watches small. Can't stand the feeling of having a fucking old school wall clock strapped to my arm.

    Right now I have a G-Shock model 3263. I got it from LAPG on clearance for like $75 bucks shipped. It's nice and light weight on the wrist which is something I really like in a watch. My only other watch I really liked was a old Luminox.

    It's a replica, a good copy, but that's why it's the beater. If I smash it, then I'm only out $60, the B&R is a different story.

    Saving for a real Panerai, you are right, they are sweet timepieces.

    I had a replica Breitling Navitimer that even fooled the jewelry store local to me. It was nice for only $60. Got a bunch of fakes on Canal St in NYC.

    I've got a 1940's Jager LeCoultre and an old Heuer Chronograph, as well as a newer Movado.

    I'm not an everyday wearer though; mainly just for dress-up. I'll have to snap some photos of them later.

    I'm with Jake though; I like simple. Some of the JLC open faced complications are quite exquisite, but they just feel too "flashy" for me to really want to wear them.

    I don't like flashy, but I like a watch with useful features. My Citizen is atomic and solar, and has 43 time zones programmed. It is not simple but the 'complication' is useful, not for flash.

    What is the attraction of watch fakes? I never had any desire for or really looked at fakes... what am I missing?

    They look nice and brand snobs, who are superficial, are "impressed" by them. It is fun knowing that materialistic people think more highly of you because you have an "expensive" watch. The draw is the same as a real one except at 1% of the price for us poor people. I always was pretty impressed with the ones from canal. Japanese Steel movements and they feel well built. They are MUCH nicer than a comparably priced Fossil or any other $60 watch. I have one thats about 10yrs old and it still looks great. When you break one by stepping on it or scratch it working on cars you dont feel bad about it either.

    Truth be told, I've forgotten to take my Tag off while working on everything from home improvement to my diesel truck. The thing's been through the ringer and back. The crystal has not on scratch on it (despite banging it pretty hard on several occasions against metal, concrete, glass, etc.). The stainless steel casing / bracelet develops numerous light scratches throughout (and a couple slightly deeper), but if I spend about an hour polishing the shit out of it, it looks almost brand new afterwards. My Movado on the other hand is much more fragile, so I save that for special occasions where I want a more basic, clean look.

    Here's my daily, a gift from the wife- she got me the stainless one. Love this thing, even though I've read they are of mediocre quality.



    Was looking into getting a Rolex or Tag next, but I am so horribly destructive with watches that I think I might pass on that.

    Yea, my nice stuff doesn't leave the safe very often. I have a couple $15 walmart specials that I wear on occasion out and about, but I'm careful to make sure I don't wear any of them while working on cars, shooting, etc.

    Oh, I've also got a Skagen.

    The skagen looks like this one, but with a white face and yellow metal accents.
    http://www.certifiedwatchstore.com/p...54940_zoom.jpg

    It's probably one of my favorites given that the movement is perhaps only 2-3mm thick. The big chunky movements just don't do it for me; the less likely it is to get hit or caught on things, the more I tend to like it.

    Also, my LeCoultre looks VERY similar to this one: http://catalog.antiquorum.com/catalo...3&auctionid=41

    The radium paint on mine still glows to this day!

    Since getting divorced I have taken off all my rings and watches. I think it's part of the liberation experience. I have been a fan of Nixon watches and have a few in my man box.

    This is my current daily wear watch.

    Citizens EcoDrive Calibre 9000

    I have a couple of other older citizens as well that I wear sporadically. I am looking at picking up a new Citizen here soon. Looking at the EcoDrive Perpetual Chrono AT as the next one.

    Seems like every car board has a pimping watch thread.

    I am/was a big Movado fan but have one of their entry brand ESQ that died early. It's not super expensive at just under $200 but has soured me on the entire brand line.

    I've switched over to a Gucci G-round for daily wear. Listed at close to $700 but snagged it discontinued in the $2xx range.

    I can't justify spending much more than that.

    Maybe I'm too cheap blood for this thread but I just picked up a $120 G-shock and I really love it. I think it looks nice as well I really love the world time feature.

    I just picked up a Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 back in January. I've been wanting one for a couple of years now and I justified it by saying I will pass it down to my son at some point. College graduation, marriage, etc. Here's mine.

    I've been sporting this for probably 12 years now. The only other watch I've had recently was a fake that looked very similar that I test drove for a few years prior to buying this one. The fake wasn't a great one, and after being demoted to a vacation watch didn't make it back from mexico in one piece a couple trips ago. The real one came to me probably 10-15 years old, and now has another 12 years on it and doesn't really show any wear other than light surface micro scratches.

    The pic isn't actually mine, I couldn't get a good shot of it...

    Personally, I'm a fan of the Citizen Eco-drives specifically the Signature watches. The Eco drive stuff is fascinating. I like the weight and the type of crystal used.

    My issued G-Shock is what I wear 99% of the time. If I'm going out with the wife, I'll wear one of my "nicer" Timex watches.

    Art, I'm sure you know about ProMotive deal that we get on Suunto, right?

    I have a ProMotive account but I typically find better deals elsewhere.

    Suunto dropped off my list once I saw the 30 day battery life on the Ambit.

    Next will either be a Prometheus or Luminox Atacama

    I wasn't sure if you were deployed right now or not. ProMotive is where I shop when I'm deployed because the wife usually can't get to London Bridge Trading or GSS before they close due to her work schedule.

    Bought the wife a Skagen for Mother's Day. She doesn't own a watch at all, so lets hope this goes well.

    I have a sick obsession with Citizen. I could have a low end Hublot if I could get all of what I've spent on my little collection.
