    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.

    It's pretty nice
    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.

    As another forum puts it, I am a bit of a WIS (watch idiot savant). I don't know why, but watches have always fascinated me.

    My usual day to day watch is a TAG Heuer Series 2000 "diver" that I bought way back in the early 90s with money made mowing lawns in the summer. I loved it then and I still do.

    I also wear a Seiko Pilot slide rule chrono from time to time. And of course the G-Shock has a place. I have a Tudor Submariner but for some reason I like it much more when it isn't on my wrist. There's a couple other Seikos and a Citizen automatic that I own but never wear as well.

    I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go with a Rolex at some point, just because it is wrong to love watches as much as I do and not own one. But it seems ridiculous how expensive they've become... and you can't buy the one I REALLY want new anymore. (The original GMT with Pepsi bezel... I watched too much Magnum PI.) I'm torn between a GMTII, the Submariner, and an Air King. We'll see, not like I plan on running out of time to get one soon.

    I figure if you have a high-end watch, you better have a high-end car, high-end house, etc. to go with the watch. I wear a Sunnto.

    What does the watch have to do with high end house or high end car?

    I don't like car and I don't like big houses. Why would I buy these things just to go with my watches?
