What kind of watches do you guys wear?

I wear an Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Quartz.

My top 5 favourate watches are;


Rolex Submariner. $5-$7000 USD. A great watch, 300M water resistance just like the Seamaster. Has the date magnifier, either you like it or you don't. I recently had my chance to get a very good deal on a limited edition 2004 aniversary green bezel edition, but someone beat me to it. I might regret it as the value of Limited Edition Rolexs can soar over time.

Omega seamaster, enough said.


Breitling Navtimer;

This watch is a work of art, a true pilots watch.


Omega Planet Ocean;


Rolex Daytona;


The most beautiful watch ever made in my opinion. Not very cost effective, but my wrist would be complete with one of those.

Post up pictures of your watches or your favourite ones you have your eyes on.

Rolex and Breitling, the non-plus-ultra of bad taste and cheap (albeit costly) ostentation.

Any cheap Casio. Nice watches are not one of my passions.
And it's best that way cause my watches regularly break due to me being careless.

One that tells time.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

I wear Movado, gift from my husband when we were young and poor (I mean, poorer).

My husband has been an eyeing a beautiful Breitling for ever, but those are freakin' overpriced in Switzerland. I might visit China and pick up a bootleg Breitling for him known, I believe, as Cheitling

As marketers of expensive, anachronistic watches say, ''There's one born every ''minute.'' I'll second that.
