    Hey all,

    Yeah I thought it was time for another WATCH thread. You know you can never have enough threads about watches completed with great pics and reviews.

    This time lets go with your favorite every day watch or hard use watch, whatever way you want to classify it. Feel free to name what you have on your "WANT" list too.

    These don't have to be HIGH dollar watches, I like all kinds and don't have any expensive watches yet.

    Of course PICS are certainly encouraged....


    For me, my everyday wear watch is a SUUNTO Vector with a 5 ring Zulu strap. I've had it for several years and it's a great watch. Just started wearing the strap and really like it too, highly recommended.

    Been wanting to pick up a Casio g-Shock or a Casio Pro-Trek. I like the MudMan, Riseman, 100 series G-Shock, the 3000 series Aviator in Orange and the PRG240 ProTrek.

    Also need to pick up something inexpensive that can be worn in a business setting. Something like an Invicta Grand Diver for $90 or so. That would hold me until I could get a REAL NICE watch in the future.

    I have MANY more that I want, but don't want to list 'em all. Lord I love watches.

    Who else out there?

    Thanks

    My EVERYDAY watch:

    [​IMG]

    I wear it all the time. The only time it comes off is if we go outta country. I then slap on some Tag diver watch. The only other times it really comes off is when I'm changing a lawnmower belt, or something that's gonna be tight and involves sharp objects. Any "activity" will leave it on my wrist. It's beat up as hell, but so what? It's a watch and it'll handle it. :)

    I also own a Tissot T-Touch Titanium/carbon fiber w/ rubber strap and titanium clasp. Along with those are about 3 or 4 Seikos.

    OH LORD......right out of the gate we got a couple of HEAVYWEIGHTS!!

    I have looked at that Puck for a long time now and that is one sweet watch. I love the bracelet. Ash, you seem to be a watch nut too. You have posted several pics of some really nice watches. Are you the BAC of the watch world here?

    USMC, what can you say about that beauty? The Stainless Sub is my GRAIL watch, but that one ain't but a hair different. I'd surely love to have one of those too. Maybe someday I can get one.

    Right now I have 2 grail watches, a Rloex Submariner and an Omega Planet Ocean Chrono in orange, the old model with 3 subdials.

    GOD I need to hit the lotto.

    Keep 'em coming guys.

    Thanks

    As long as YOU like it, who cares what others think. Wear what YOU like. C'mon, lets see it. It couldn't be any worse than some of the ones I have or have owned in the past.

    What I like is how USMC talks about wearing something else when he goes out of the country. Like "slapping" on an old TAG or something. Almost like he's talking about putting on an Armitron that he picked up out of the rotating case at the WalMart jewelry counter.
    THAT"S TOO FUNNY....

    Wish I had such luxuries.

    Ive been wearing a Tag Calibre S for the past 3 years. I beat the crap out of it, but it has been a solid watch. I really like the perpetual calendar.....dont need to adjust the date every month.

    I would like to get one similar to USMC's at some point...very nice:cool:

    Here is the only pic i have, sorry it sucks.

    Nice watch.

    I wear an Aquaracer quartz most days. I have several decent watches but like that Tag best.

    I'm going to be "that guy" and say that my watch is my cell phone.

    Today I wore a watch again for the first time in years. I couldn't stand it, and quickly gave it back to the coworker I stole it from. I miss having a reason to enjoy watches and dream of new and interesting ones, but I certainly don't miss wearing one.

    i can see that , like someone who dont like guns but uses a club. everyone has a cellphone , but to me and other watch lovers ,there is a connection to a good time piece and just the history of it all . if i lost my cell phone tomorrow i could care less , let me lose a good watch then i would cry lol

    and lets face it , if i want to see what time it is , i look at wrist , not a case or pocket to fumble with . plus you cant swim or dive using cell phone . 2 things that i do .
