    Just picked up one of these for wifey, no special reason I was just tired of seeing her with a Tag on her wrist. I could have picked up a couple of Modones instead for the price but I have enough bikes hanging around here..........

    I guess I'm the ******......sorry. You could have ripped me a new one but instead you took the high road and showed alot more class in this thread than I.

    In my defense, a friend has an admitted fake and we compared differences side by side to my submariner. The three obvious differences were weight, lack of cyclops in his, and lack of smooth second hand movement.

    Love the Seadweller

    This is one of my daily wearers. Homage to a '70s vintage model.


    This one is my favorite sporty dress watch - a circa 1974 Breitling model 815

    I love seeing all the older watches! Since it hasn't been represented, I really like my Swiss Army Ambassador automatic. Would highly recommend. Keep em comin'...

    Cheap Casio (about 35 quid). Keeps perfect time and I don't care about riding with it.

    Sorry, no pictures
    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    You'd be surprised nowadays, counterfeit watches have gotten pretty good - some even costing in the thousands.

    I haven't owned or worn a watch since 1966. I don't get the whole watch thing. There are clocks everywhere. And who likes stuff on their wrist?

    When I see a guy with a big 'ol watch it doesn't even occur to me it's for status. I even notice I just think "Bummer. That must suck. Maybe some day he'll get a cell phone and won't need it."
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    Think of it as diamond for the women. It's a must-have like a nice pair of leather shoes, a nice wallet, and a nice belt.

    another Brietling here - the SuperOcean Steelfish. Gift from my wife a few years back when we bought eachother 10 yr anniv gifts for one another that we would have never bought for ourselves (she received a rather expensive diamond band). to think of the all the schwag that went unpurchased!

    I don't ride with it - too big/heavy and would be uncomfortable for anything longer than 30 mins.

    And all Breitlings are chronometer-certified, to the outsource quartz movement guy.

    Watches aren't very aero. If I can't tell what time it is by the position of the sun I just ask someone.

    Here's mine. It's a cheap, $60 watch, but I think it suits me.




    This one's my girlfriend's, a Garmin Forerunner 405. This thing is hella fun to play with. With the HRM and cadence sensor, this thing does essentially the same stuff as the edge, sans pretty screen and directions:

    I believe the majority of Breitlings use movements obtained from ETA, which is owned by Swatch, and then from there Breitling modifies the movement.

    Expensive (from a long established, reputable watchmaker) = lifetime warranty + smart investment.

    To bequeath a well worn, quality timepiece to a loved one upon death = priceless.

    funny, my goal in life has been to have a job where I don't need to wear nice shoes, I now wear running shoes, sandals, or some casual leather shoes in the winter every day, I got rid of my wallet a long time ago as it kept turning into a Costanza, and nice belts only make sense when you are wearing nice clothes with a tucked in shirt. Can't remember the last time I tucked in my shirt. I'm guessing it was for a wedding. I guess that's why I don't wear a watch very often either.

    I do have a fairly expensive cell phone though...

    I work from my home office every day, usually wear shorts and sandals, but still wear one of my watches every day. I even adjust them to match my cellphone when I wind them before putting them on. It's not about timekeeping, it's about owning a mechanical device that I enjoy, and will be great to pass on to my kids and nephews in the years to come.

    I have no problems with the Breitling Mechanicals, some of the finest watches in the world .

    But, the Aerospace is a dud, especially coming from a great company like Breitling. That is why my opinion of the watch is akin to a Ferrari with a Hyundai engine.

    Beautiful watches guys, especially love the white Bell & Ross. What do you guys think of the Tag Formula 1 in white? Looking for an everyday watch in that price range (sub 1k). I've looked at couple Hamilton watches but haven't found one that I like. Thanks!

    1970-something Omega Seamaster. I got it from my father who sailed with it, so it's pretty weathered.

    I don't normally wear a watch, though, only when I'm getting dressed-up. I'm never so far away from a clock that I can't find out the time. Watches are jewelry for men.
