What watch you're wearing?

Postby zhtckr » Fri Jan 01, 2021 4:52 pm

Are there any watch lovers like me?

Seiko, omega, orient, and hamilton are some of my favorite watch brands. :cool:

Not a watch enthusiast, but I do appreciate a well built time piece. I'm wearing my Casio GShock Rangeman GW9400 in OD Green. It's been my daily driver for almost 4 years and I havent felt the need to wear anything else since getting it.

Apple Watch. Two generations old. I've gone through a ton of fitness trackers, until eventually the Apple Watch was able to replace them. I'll probably get a new Apple Watch when this one dies.

Samsung S3. It's been bulletproof for over a year and I got it used in a trade for a user Spyderco and sharpening lesson. Very happy.

I've got two - a Timex Ironman for running, and a Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster dive watch for scuba diving.

I wear the dive watch more often than the Timex, but neither on a regular basis.

Normally don't wear one, every now and then I do.

Everything seems to have a clock on anymore so I don't normally bother.

I’m not a watch enthusiast, but I always wear one. Mine is nothing special brand-wise; it’s a Timex ‘Indiglo’. I buy Timex watches because they’re inexpensive, and in my experience they work very well for a long time. I’ve had the current one for several years now.

If I ever do break down and get a high quality watch it will probably be a Swiss made watch like a ROLEX, Patek Phillipe or some other high end Swiss made watch. One reason I would go that route is because I've seen those Swiss made watches have great re-sale value down the road. Very few items have good re-sale value anymore but those Swiss made watches do have good re-sale value if you buy high quality in the first place.

I know there are still some good American made watches on the market but nobody beats a Swiss made watch IMO.

Hey Jim I've got one of those TIMEX "indiglo" watches myself. I just put in a $5 new battery every year and I've been good to go for the past 5 years or so. You can't beat that when I only paid about $40 for it to begin with. Way back when I was in high school I would always buy those TIMEX windup type watches and they would last at least 2 to 3 years or so. And I doubt I ever paid more than $20 for any of them.

They don't have the quality of most of the watches out there. But for as long as they do last they aren't bad for a "throw-away" watch.

I like watches, but refuse to go down that rabbit hole fully. I dipped my toes with a few Orients until my wife bought me an Apple Watch. Now it’s all I wear on my wrist. The fall detection should come in handy when I eventually fall off the roof cleaning the gutters. Joke? Maybe not, as I’ve already knocked the ladder over once and had to have my neighbor help me.
Yep, I’m “that guy”. :o

I have an Omega Seamaster that I have had for 27 years or more. I love that watch. I also have a cheap S&W watch with tritium gas tubes that works wonderfully. I have been looking at the new Tag Heuer Autavia, but then, there is a Ball Watch dealer, here, too. Hmmmm.

Sadly, my favorite watch (DateJust ref. 1600) is in for service. Sigh...

EDIT - It's on it's way back to me. Can't wait, though there is nothing wrong with the Tissot I am wearing now.
