    Show Us Your Watch...

    I did a search, but after about 4 pages I couldn't find a thread like this.

    I am looking for recommendations on a new watch. So, this might be a good opportunity to show everyone yours and tell what you think about it. Post a pic, and let us know if you would recommend the watch to others.

    Edit: I am currently looking at the Tissot T-touch, like this one but with a black rubber band. Anyone had any extensive experience with the T-Touch?

    You don't need a better picture because you can tell it's one of those 8$ walmart watches. It works though.

    I've not worn a watch for about 6 or 7 years. It's liberating.

    Booyah. Early 90s Timex Ironman. Takes a lickin', and, well, you know.

    Third band. Second battery. Still gets the ladies and the prospective employers all atwitter.

    Early 2000s Timex Ironman. The only time I use it is when I go running. And yes, it is Monday where I live.

    There are clocks everywhere nowadays. I rarely even look at the clock on my phone except as a last resort.

    It's really nice not having it staring you in the face all of the time, though.

    I have had the Tissot Touch in titanium for a year or so. I really like it, the touch system is really cool. The altimeter, barometer,compass,and thermometer are cool features. Since i don't wear a 1000 dollar watch riding the those features are basically useless information when out on the town.

    It is a little on the bulky side(thick) but not too bad. Some military style watches are really cool and also Citizens Eco drive aviation series are pretty nifty. I too don't like a really busy watch.

    Don't let the timepiece nay sayers get to you. Any cyclist that enjoys using precision bike parts can also appreciate a precision time piece.
    Let us know what you end up with.

    Please, stop putting words in our mouths... No one said we didn't appreciate them, only that we didn't use them.

    I appreciate the effects of strychnine on living bodies, though I refrain from using it.

    I stopped wearing watches after I saw what happened to someone near machine with a watch. I am so absentminded I could see it happening to me.

    The only jewerly I wear is a wedding band - and it is very small.

    I have a collection of Relics that were prizes at races, but I don't wear them.

    I prefer to keep computers and bikes separate, as I do not have a cyclocomputer either.
