    Official Watch thread - What Watch do you wear?

    I tried to search to see if there were any Watch threads already created but i didn't find any, so i figured i'll start one.

    As the title say's, what Watch(es) do you wear? Post up pics of your Watch collection.

    I have two Fossil watches and just recently got my first Invicta, here is a picture of it.

    I love it, can't complain one bit.

    That thing is pretty. I've always just worn an old Timex Ironman. It doesn't have many features other than time and lap functions, but it's small, lightweight, waterproof and I don't worry about breaking it. Which is good, because I find myself on quite a few unplanned adventures.

    Very nice!

    I just recently started getting into watches, it's crazy how much goes into them. The movement alone can jump the cost up like crazy.

    I guess it's like everything though once you start learning about something.

    I don't wear it when I ride. Time is not important on the trail.

    I've had a Citizen Eco Drive Blue Angels version for about 10 years now. Only thing I've had to replace is the glass, twice. Other than that, I love that watch.

    Funny, I find watches immensely fascinating yet I often don't care what time it is..

    My regular watch is this Broadarrow PRS-11:


    It's all mechanical. The black coating is some sort of hardening like the tip of a screwdriver, not really a coating but some sort of alteration of the metal itself. Worn it as a "beater" watch for 10 odd years and it's tough as nails. The bezel has a few battle scars but the sapphire glass and the house itself look as new.

    Actually I do some times. One that synchronizes itself automatically and charges on solar energy... It's actually much more precise than my Aviator I and thus much more convenient for my job but I just like the Aviator I better for looks...

    I have a really nice Festina that I wear to look nice but as the years have gone by I find that I am really particular about how a watch feels when it's on. For example, I have to have a velcro band. I prefer a Kavu band and I use it on a Casio watch but it's the only model I know of in their line that accepts a velcro band and has altimeter, barometer functions. The G Shocks use that stupid band that is held on by screws.

    I'm a mess.

    I can't stand to wear a watch, but when I do it's either a Motoactv or a Garmin Forerunner.

    Rolex Submariner Date. This is the last
    watch I will ever buy. The wife had me
    get it for a retirement present.

    Best, John

    G-Shock Solar atomic. I wear it 24/7, don't even take it off in the shower. Love the G-shocks, they last ten times as long as a Timex.

    I wear a $30 timex. And at that only when I ride to time myself. Or when running to keep track of the intervals.

    Luminox. I used to wear watches all the time but now I only wear them at work and special occasions.

    I have a fancy looking ESQ for special occasions as well as a Festina that needs a new battery...still looks nice though. I can add pics later, at work right now.

    You could ask the same about bikes... Different people, different interests...

    I've always been a "watch guy". My collection at the moment has a Movado Sub-Sea 300M Chrono, a Tissiot T-Race and another Tissot (square face, can't remember the model).

    As an avid scuba diver I wanted a watch I could dive in without any concerns... and decided it was time to get a serious watch, the kind of watch I can wear and hold onto for the rest of my life. On our last cruise my fiancee and I purchased a Tag Heuer Aquaracer 300M (1000ft) Automatic Chronograph dive watch for me. It's a classic design that won't get old, and dated... and rugged enough to last me the rest of my life. It's my baby, and she's "Alive" (meaning it's an automatic and doesn't not require batteries)

    Thanks. I've had it since 2000. The 1st gen broke out of warranty, but Omega replaced it with a 2nd gen under warranty anyway. I've worn it daily, including flight operations, for 12 years now. I keep thinking I want a new/different watch, but this one really has an optimal mix of functions for flying and lots of other things, and I can't find another watch with its capability.

    Don't get me wrong, there are other awesome watches out there, but for me, none are the equal of this one.

    Other than the personal enjoyment of owning a mechanical timepiece ( note I did not say "watch" ) is to have something very personal to pass down to my sons. Nothing says more than being willed a timepiece that your father wore often and enjoyed every day of his life........

    I never wear it while riding as if I fell, the band could get caught on something and break my wrist.

    I wear a Tissot T-Race, Nicky Hayden edition.



    It's rubbish. The minute timer has broken and the wife's Tissot kept snapping pins on the band. They look pretty though.

    G-Shock GW-300 - the first Atomic Solar G-Shock. Had it since 2002 and it still works (Battery level is still "High"). Got into the habit of wearing a watch from timing running workouts but I don't time my rides.
