    What Watches are you wearing???

    So after a brief stint with an Apple Watch, I sold it as it just wasn’t really my thing. Aside from giving me weather and heart rate monitoring, I didn’t find much use for it.

    I replaced it with a Fossil Chrono and a G Shock. Pretty excited to get a G Shock.

    Might even order a Fitbit for the active side of me, but I guess a G Shock is manlier right?

    What are you wearing?

    I have a few nice watches which my lovely wife has bought for me and which I never wear. Watches don't live very long on me.

    Actual pic of my Omega Seamaster Professional Co-Axial in Black (As oppose to the "iconic" blue wave "James Bond" face).

    I prefer this more than my Rolex watches as they are not as common and every bit as functional without nearly as much "bling" (and much less expensive). I can get at least two Omegas for the price of one Rolex Submariner.

    G shocks with a metal band look so cool.

    I am very hard on watches. If I get a year out of one, it is doing great. This one has been worn for about two years so far. My budget limit for a watch is $100. The MSRP is $160, but Wal-Mart sells them for $95.

    I have a Hamilton Khaki Frogman Automatic in Titanium that's my daily, but I really would love to add an Omega.

    Same one I have worn since 1986, that’s been around the world more than several times, and in numerous combat operations.
    A Buluva Marine Star diving watch.

    32 years later, I’m glad this watch cant talk:)

    Just had to switch to a Casio since my classic 40 year old Seiko decided to quit.

    Cool! A watch thread.

    Vintage watches are another collecting hobby enjoyed around here. Vintage all the way! Only a single quartz Seiko lives here.


    The Omega Speedmaster is the most recognizable generally of the watches here and is regularly worn even though I'm not going to the moon, but is not the favorite.




    Wearing this one today, an early example of the Zodiac SeaWolf, this one is from the early 1950s. This dive watch stays serviced and is ready to go, rated to 600 feet, but isn't even worn into the shower.




    Even though I'm now retired and no longer go many places that require them, I enjoy the vintage dress and "town" watches from the 1940s through the 1960s best and still wear them regularly. More of these type watches are kept on hand than sport or tool watches. This Longines example with 27M movement and 18kt rose gold case dates to 1948.




    Vintage watches have been trouble-free in my experience. Once serviced they tick merrily and provide satisfactorily accurate service. None see hard use though. Well, except for the following watch.


    This one is the beater watch and has seen very hard service despite being a "vintage" watch. I've used it as the chores/hunting/fishing/hiking watch since the 1980s when it was acquired from a pawn shop for little cash outlay. A simple military styled Glycine from the 1950s.
