    Hey all,

    I've been a watch NUT for a long time. My GRAIL watch is a Rolex Submariner, but I don't know if I'll ever get one due to the price increases every year. A couple weeks ago I checked out another watch that just might replace the Submariner. It is one of the most beautiful watches I have ever seen. It was on OMEGA Seamaster Chrono. I have been thinking of this watch since I handled it at a Jared's.

    So since everybody loves watches and watch pics, I thought it would be a good time to have a thread where everyone can post their Diver and Military or Chrono style watches.

    C'mon everyone and post your faves.


    Thanks

    Nalajr

    BEST WATCH i ever had was a g shock d5600 series from back in 89 , no back light on it lol . loved the old square ones .

    i ran over it , thru against a rock wall , torture tested from hell, the only thing that broke when i slammed it on wood flooring was the lug pin . man i loved that watch . i still have it in a drawer , it looks like been thru a cheese grater but i bet i could slap a battery in it and it would fire up :rofl::rofl:

    id have to disagree there , there is tons of posting bout Doxa crap watches and their customer service sucks .

    here is just one of 10,000 links to DOXA . you could not give me one
    http://www.tz-uk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=43129&start=0

    Customer Service sucks? I don't know. Mine don't need any customer services.

    Really? I paid for my three watches and I got'em. Two days FedEx delivery just as advertised.:dunno:

    BTW, you flashed a Panerai...isn't that the outfit that couldn't even make their own watches and Rolex had to make the watches for them?

    I have a buddy who replaced his Doxa three times due to issues with it. He finally replaced it with an Omega and is very happy.

    I wanted an Omega but decided to go with a Seiko Monster because it was less expensive and I wanted to see how it felt to have that heavy of a watch on my arm. If I continue to wear it, I will get and Omega.
