    My favorite watch by far to wear in the cold months is my Seiko Samurai on a black Zulu. I actually even went diving with it in August and it was fantastic.



    Funny enough, my most complimented watch is my crappy Timex that I wear on various nylon straps. My $300 SARB that I'm wearing right now gets no 2nd glances. Pretty much the only reason I haven't splurged on an Omega or Hamilton yet is that I know only other watch enthusiasts would care. 98% of people who I ever talk about watches to know little to nothing. They know "ROLEX = REALLY GOOD" and that's about it.




    I love my Hamilton too

    Yes. I bought it in '04 for $7K (black face) then bought a gold one the following year (yellow/dark MOP face). So I wore the SS everywhere- all of my hunting trips, all of my family vacations, etc.



    Went to Aruba and was looking Rolexes in '13 and was nonchalant with the SS, told the salesperson my nicer gold one was home...….only to find out it has appreciated in value as SS is "rarer...…." Kept on hearing that everywhere else I went. Started hunting Africa last year, so I finally made the change.



    But with Rolex it is all about marketing, they are certainly not valued at all for their (lack of) complications. After all when was the cosmograph movement finally made in house? The late 90s?????

    I'm not sure about the cosmograph. That predates my watch enthusiasm. I did not jump into the fold until 2009-2010.



    Nice job with the SS appreciation. It is always nice when it works out that way.

    It is called a canteen crown. Its basically a screw down cap for the actual crown that is under neath. Its part of their Navy Frogman line of watches.

    That's very cool. I don't know much about that watch series - is it meant for sailors?

    My first ever big boy watch was this Tag Heuer Indy 500 I bought back in 2007 or 2008. During that time, I thought I made a huge mistake, but when I put the watch on and noticed a huge difference between some $20 watch I bought off of Marshalls or Ross and the feel and weight of the Tag, I instantly fell in love. I havent taken care of it the best, but now that I'm diving head first into this rabbit hole, I'm going to have it regularly maintained since it was my first big purchase.

    I am a fan of Breitling. A very good durable watch that doesn't scream "look at me" but is quietly respected by those who know of it.




    So about two years ago we had a party at my house and in my excitement i got to "amnesia-mode" of drinking. Right as I was crossing the conscious/unconscious barrier, i "hid" my Breitling SuperOcean somewhere on our top floor. I have not been able to find it but i know it is somewhere in our nightmare storage closet.



    Fast forward to last night... My fiancee and i were at a Jewelry store picking out our rings for our wedding and she surprised me by buying me this as a pre-wedding present. I think i hit the future wife lottery



    It is a IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph Spitfire.





    Wow!



    Nice piece. Very, very, cool.

    Probably not, more just a unique field watch

    My newest addition -- SKX013. 38mm fits my tiny wrists much better than the 007.

    It's currently on a 19mm ZULU. I have the correct 20mm ones being shipped.

    I don’t have a 007. Originally looked at one but liked the smaller 013 better.

    Really like that strap. I keep watching videos on how good the SKX is, I may have to pull the trigger.

    Do it... the Seiko divers are so good. I had an 007 and sold it and then got the Samurai (SRPB51) as an upgrade.



    Ps here's one of my Seiko's that I wear daily to work and also more formal events. I have about 4 leather straps for it, but the links were so hard to get back on, I'm almost definitely never taking them back off. I'd rather buy another watch specifically to have leather straps than have to do that again...

    I wanted a tough, reliable, low-maintenance, automatic to wear along with my Aquaterra and G-shock.

    This is looking like the next purchase. I saw this SRPC93 Samurai and now I have to have it. Hopefully the watch shop near me can get it, waiting to hear back from them.

    Really digging this Tissot. I have one that I just love, but given my office has gone to more business casual than business dress (and I got a DateJust...) I haven't worn it in years.



    I've been debating again about getting an Apple Watch or another "every day" watch, but the jeweler I got my Rolex from basically said treat it like you would any other watch and just wear it 24/7, so I've struggled ever wearing anything else. My dad has a DateJust as well and wears it working around the house and in the garden. Once the guy told him to just wear it and treat it like a watch and not a piece of jewelry, I don't think my dad has taken it off.

    It wears really well on a steel mesh bracelet. Looks kinda Breitling like

    is 2200 for a brand new Breitling Colt 41 automatic a good deal? This is for the previous generation, not the one that just dropped this year.

    Was looking at Bremont watches online.

    Look really good and I like their story



    Wondered if they are worth it.



    Keep looking at various makes, like the Breitling Chronoliner in blue, love the Jaeger limited edition and a few others. Won’t be spending 8.5k on a sub, fancy something more left field
