I started to say 6 figures in watches, but didn't want to be accused of hyperbole.

Besides, it was intended as humor, given this is a bike forum, not an appraisal of your admittedly lovely collection.

i was about to say. the most expensive watch I ever tried on was a rose gold Royal Oak, and it took me all of 2 seconds to figure out it was out of my league @ $60k. makes my $8k ceramic Submariner look like a casio...which incidentally I actually have quite a few of.

Wow, this forum is wealthier than I thought. I can't imagine spending 5 figures on a watch. Watches are important to my in-laws, but they can afford it. I have 3 imitation automatic watches, a dress Longines, a submariner, and a rolex daytona. 2 from Florence, one from Bangkok. I don't care that they're fake. I do want a Panerai Radomir one day.

i guess im a mid grade watch hack. ive got a few i like though. lesse, a big red suunto vector, two solar g-shock radio watches (sync to atomic clock, solar powered. lazy mans special!), an automatic seiko chronograph, bulova marinestar with the michigan wolverine bezel (maize and blue), a 40 dollar invicta dive watch from costco. id really like to pick up a seiko orange monster and the seiko automatic dive watch with the pepsi bezel too.

My taste in watches seems a little different from most here. I get a kick out of wearing a watch that's older than me, that I fixed all by myself.

I have a few other watches kicking around that I wear while riding and travelling, but this is the flagship of my collection and as such, is a little babied.

Did Casio discontinue these?

I had 4 before of the circle cased ones and sold them eventually.

What's the model number for these?

Light, stays put when road vibes kick in, relatively cheap and has a vibrating alarm that doesn't wake the SWMBO up:

Breitling SuperOcean in Coral Orange -- never wear it while on the bike as it adds to the weight :-)

Although the orange thunderbolt secondary hand may be controversial I think it is one of their most versatile watches. The green glass is defeinitely different and makes for an interesting piece. I've also seen some other cool ones like the hublot prada edition with the red glass. Pretty darn cool.
