I probably buy more watches than I should, but I dont break the bank on any of them. These are the three i wear most often…..

This is what I wear at work and the gym:

I don't know how much any of this shit costs and its just too much hassle to figure it out so for fucks sake could you post how much these things cost so I can be adequately impressed ?

Really digging my new luminox watch. Swiss made, very light, good rotating bezel (handy for timing things), waterproof, tough and the tritium illimunation is handy and cool. Can read he watch well in any lighting condition without a power source needed or a light source to recharge the lume. Radioactivity FTW.

Also the murdered out looks are nice.

Swiss or GTFO.

One of these has been my 'daily driver' for the last 12 years [HTML_REMOVED] it still looks as good as new…

I don't wear it for biking (G-Shock for that) but not many days go by when its not on my wrist. It still keeps perfect time [HTML_REMOVED] the sapphire crystal screen just won't scratch.

One of these will be my next investment…

I can't stand wearing rings or chains, but I feel naked without my watch.

Love my BR 01-92.

I have the same watch but in stainless with the black leather band and white numbers. Love it. Bought a couple more bands for fun.

I have a Tag Heuer F1. Only watch I ever owned that I couldn't break within a year or two. First one was a Valentine gift but was stolen after about twelve years. Unfortunately the replacement is larger. They don't make the smaller ones anymore.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

In case you're interested, there is a Vancouver-based watch company, Momentum.

I have two of these: http://www.momentumwatch.com/pages/products/list-of-products/pathfinder-ii.php

Durable, titanium, sapphire crystal is available (no scratches!), and very reasonably priced.

I don't need any additional watches but I sure would like the 2 that got jacked from me back.

I'm still mad my family wasted 1600 on a watch for me, even more so that it got yanked.

Now I have these

With a few exceptions, there is a whole lot of terrible taste in this thread. And while I don't wear or own a watch, the people who complain about the money spent on nice watching need to get over it; everyone spends money on stupid shit. At least a nice watch isn't something stupid like a bad tattoo or a man-necklace or some ridiculous diamond earrings…

I'd sacrifice a small herd of farm animals to own one of those. Possibly my favorite watch.
