Word... I saw these in the American Express Departures magazine a year or so ago... Been drooling over them ever since.

Right now:

Nixon 51-30 white/stainless
Fortis Flieger B-42 chronograph black/stainless
Bell & Ross BR-01 blue/black
My grandfather's really good fake Rolex daytona white/stainless

In order of how much I wear them.

Awesome! I look at the position of shadow of my handlebars in relation to the top tube...that way I don't have to look up and mess up my aero position. Learn this and you'll be golden :thumb:

Anyone have any advice as to how I could fix this? I've taken it in to get the band shortened, but to fit my wrist, the band forms a very odd shape. It no longer retains a circular figure, and just looks strange.

You'd have to have permanent links removed, typically from the 6 o'clock side. It wasn't worth it for me to chop up my bracelet, so I live with it lopsided. I think you're talking about this?:

Just save the links they take out, it isn't permanent, they can be put back in when you balloon up to 400lbs later in life:lol:

Expensive watches...

Are you boys going to compare your Coach handbags next?

I have a Rolex Sub LV and a Explorer I. I've debated on getting the Exp I sized for my wife but she is hesitant to wear a larger sized watch. Not getting anything else till I can get my hands on a AP ROO.

redneckwes 07-26-10 08:12 PM

Something strange just came to me. I've never even seen a Rolex Sub in person.

Timex sells a hell of a lot of "Easy Readers" out here in flyover country. Kill it, fine, you can get a new one for $35.


I love watches, if I ever had the money I might have a good one, I'd never wear it though. An old Timex Marlin or 60's Caravelle is more my style.

I think men's watches look great on a lady (obviously). I wear the 40mm Seadweller daily and love it (and heck, I'm petite). The Exp I is really not a big watch. Have her wear it for a couple weeks. It'll feel right at home in no time!

I've had a couple of Citizen's over the years. Right now, I just have three Casio's! :) Years ago when the shop I worked at sold Festina's, I almost bought one, but we didn't carry the one that had the auto Epo injection, so I thought twice ;) . I'll buy another nice piece one of these days....too many other things I want/need right now though.

My watch collection has hit about 11 watches or so. But my favorite, that I wear all the time is my Oris F1 with a full Carbon face. I will try to get pics up soon. My Briel Ducati edition is a close second.

lazerzxr 07-27-10 03:51 AM

Support your LJS - local jewelry store.:)

Guillotine007 07-27-10 10:16 AM

why support my LJS when a chronoshark retails for 495 but can be bought online for 99!!! Plus it comes fully assembled, BD can eat its heart out.

Ah, but at the LJS you can tryout different watches and get fitted. Proper fit is very important, as we all know. When you buy online, you do not get these things. And no local support.;)

I know more about Japanese Domestic Market G-Shocks and Seikos than I like to admit in public. I have owned and parted with many over the years. Currently I wear this Casio SGW-100 on and off the bike. Great price and features:

Hey thanks! I see that some of them are missing the extra bit of strap that "sandwiches" part of the watch.
This vs this.

What's the deal with the difference in securing the watch?
