$7.50 Walmart stainless white face quartz with sweep second hand that I fitted a stainless band from another broken watch to. Keeps perfect time, easy to read...when I'm not wearing my Citizen Navihawk or Seiko dress and a few others.

Either a Rolex 5513 or 114270 (sold all the ones I had with date complications). I've had the 5513 since 1982 and it's never skipped a beat....and cost less back then than some Casio's now!

My everyday watch is a Seiko Black Monster. I have a 1965 Omega Seamaster . In 2010 I purchased a 1980s manufacture Tudor Submariner . The money I used to buy that watch came from the overtime I worked on the first murder case where I was lead detective. I kept that money until the trials were over with . Now when I look at the time on that watch I know people are doing time .

Omega Seamaster or Planet Ocean for fishing/outdoors/water related stuff (big Bond fan), Rolex for everyday (Datejust Jubilee, Submariner, gold Daytona, Explorer I) and Breitling (Old Navitimer), Patek Philippe chrono and Cartier Pasha Seatimer Chrono for fancy stuff, and my Rolex 5513 any time I have to wear a tux. Yea, I'm a Bond dork, I know. I almost got a Tissot dive watch a while back because it had some cool features, but I'm not a big fan of spending anything over $20 if it has a battery in it, and frankly it wasn't that nice. Been obsessed with auto watches since I was 14, but 13 years later I finally got all the cool stuff I wanted. Now I'm moving on to full autos, SBRs, and cans. I guess it'll be cowboy shooting after that.

I LOVE these watch threads. I wish this one had more pics though.....

LOTS of seriously beautiful watches here. Love the Rolex's and the Omega's. I ain't to that level yet, not even close. I am still in the Seiko, Suunto and Pro-Trek Casio level.

I did go and check out some of the new Timex watches and they have some really nice stuff. Looks like they are trying to compete with Casio. One of their watches that looks kinda odd and funny at first is that BIG SQUARE model the Expedition WS4. I found that after looking at it for a bit and then watching some Youtube vids about it, I am kinda wanting to try one. I realize that most people wouldn't wear that watch on a bet, that's OK, that's why they make so many different kinds and style of watches. I wouldn't mind it because I am used to wearing BIG and unusual watches as my every day watch is a SUUNTO vector just like the one posted earlier in this thread. Only mine has a Bond Zulu strap instead of the factory strap.

Some other watches I have on my list are:

1. Suunto X-Lander in silver finish
2. Casio Aviator in Orange
3. Deep Blue Depthmaster 3000
4. One of the new Seiko Solar Dive Chronos.
5. A Seiko Diver in PEPSI dress.
6. Seiko Caesar Diver, the SNDA13
7. Casio GX56 aka KING G-Shock.

That's about all I can think of right now. I'm sure i could come up with more though as I didn't add any on my list that are way out of my reach right now like the Submariner and the Omegas. Did I mention I LOVE watches?

MORE PICS EVERYONE....I DEMAND MORE PICS.

Thanks for this thread OP.

I also have a 2 tone Movado I wear when my Rolex goes in for its yearly service.
Once every 5 years is perfectly OK for a mechanical watch service.

Normally, I wear my dual time zone (it really has three) Tissot PR50 Titanium.

I dont like to wear heavy watches (even though I have two) and will take them off within and hour or two. Titanium ones I can sometimes manage to keep on 8 hours or more.

I keep looking at a t-touch...but what is really needed in a watch?

I've found that the orange bezel on the Omega Planet Ocean is too reflective underwater and unusable. So the leather strap went back on and she's playing dress watch duty nowadays.

Last of the old breed: Rolex Seadweller 4000 in 2009. The Deep Sea came out to replace the venerable Seadweller. One nifty part about the Seadweller is that it came with a Buhlmann algorithm dive table (the little card seen in the photo). Had to throw on the Maratac Zulu Nitrox wrist strap because the bracelet extension isn't long enough to go on the outside of a heavy 7mm wetsuit.

Rip Curl SS with tide cycle.

Nothing fancy, $250 or so. Strong and WP to 300'. I know what the tides are doing with a quick glance for surfing and fishing.

I'm not a very big guy so many of the coolest looking watches I see these days are just too big for my taste. My brother is 6'2" and about 60# more than I am. He's got a lot of really cool watches that I would'nt wear. Oh well... Love to see all these great pieces. I'm always looking for an addition.

That's nice.

You know, after 30 years cheap watches are just junk but watches like many people are displaying here often get better.

Want your $300 back? With interest?
