    I have a pretty impressive collection of watches. All fancy and fu-fu ultra name brand stuff...I am a collector. Many moons ago, when this place was not so full of loons, some may remember a few pics I posted.

    So, from rolling Brioni and Vacheron I say "Hey, I am going to go become a cop..." and I did. Now I buy Armitrons in bulk because a fight and the street will turn a watch into soup....and that happens from time to time. The idea of grinding one of my Swiss "finepieces" into the road surface because some turd doesnt want to go to jail makes me cringe.

    Of course, when away from all of that, fine things still happen.

    I have enjoyed the part of this thread where others have shared their passion for horology

    Did you notice the question I was answering? If so, why the "good for you" snideness?

    "Its very strange but you'll likely find many of the same folk on GT that will drop a bundle on a high end pistol/rifle/shotgun/automobile/motorcycle/boat, etc, will complain or even condemn someone who appreciates a quality, high end watch purchasing same. Go figure. Personally, I don't get it."

    I point again to reading comprehension. Do you read? Did you read the question I was merely answering? Again, I'll quote it. It has nothing to do with myself. I was answering an honest question. Maybe you should chill out a bit mr. ruffled feathers..

    Here's the question I was asked...
    "Its very strange but you'll likely find many of the same folk on GT that will drop a bundle on a high end pistol/rifle/shotgun/automobile/motorcycle/boat, etc, will complain or even condemn someone who appreciates a quality, high end watch purchasing same.

    Really, to each his own. I use Google voice (free) and have a tracfone in my car (6 bucks a month).

    Fancy watches are non-essential bling. I'll stand by that.

    I wear whatever is cheap. Right now it's a Casio Forester. I ruin too many watches at work to care about if its a nice watch. Don't wear one off of work

    I have a Citizen Dive Master that my mom and grandmother bought me when I joined the Navy in 1993. It's been in a few oceans around the world and has been on my wrist eversince. Still going strong.

    G-Shock 5600 military edition (blacked out). Water proof to a decent depth, shock resisitant, 24 hour clock, countdown / timer, backlight...what else do you need? I really can't stand bulky watches which is why I went with the 5600. Very light and comfortable. I'm military and it is also a pain in the ass to try and pull your ACU's sleeve up past a big ass watch to see the time. http://mygshock.com/pics/DW-5600MS-1DR_G-Shock_15.jpg

    Maybe for you they are.
    In certain professions things like watches, rings, cufflinks and shoes get noticed and can be the deciding factor in high stakes power plays and multi-million dollar deals.

    Kind of like comparing two mechanic shops.
    One mechanic has a well organized Snap-On setup the other has a plastic box full of Harbor Freight tools.
    The tools a craftsman chooses say a lot about their attention to details.
