    Beautiful. Love the submariner. I have an Omega Seamaster (a less expensive close relative) but I'm too afraid to wear it in rides in case of a crash. Do you wear a cheap watch while riding or do you wear that?

    I wear a 1952 Omega, SeaMaster (sadly no pic because it's being cleaned). I've had it for ten years. Only people who know watches comment on it... that's how I like it.

    I never wear the watch during rides, too scared of crashing and destroying it. The Seamaster is a great watch! Which one do you have?

    So does the bike act as an auto winder for your Rolex?

    I just started looking into automatic watches when my primary watch had a broken clasp, and 6 out of 6 quartz backup watches had dead batteries. No more quartz for me. No need to wear a watch on a ride, the bike computer has a clock, no? I am tring to decide between a Rolex and a Maurice Lacroix. Those retrograde complications on the ML are pretty cool.

    Wow. You paid that much money for a Breitling, with an out of house quartz movement.

    When are you buying a Ferrari with a Hyundai 3 cylinder engine.

    IWC and JLC make some pretty interesting watches in that price point as well, although I believe the lower end IWC's use a heavily modified ETA movement while the higher end use the in house JLC movement.

    Love the Panerai.
    Sold a couple of Rolexes, good watch but bored me after a while.
    Sporting a Breitling Chronomat Evolution, Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon, Oris Mile Tonneau Chronograph, Tag Heuer Chronograph among others.

    Would love a Panerai or a Graham Chronofighter as my next watch.

    Just like my road bikes, I like the C & V type watches. My ATF is a late 60's Longines Ultrachron in perfect working condition with the original band and signature clasp.

    But I ride with an el cheapo Dakota digital that usually gets burned out from sweat penetration within one year.

    Don't get it - those watches are boring and/or fugly. But hey, guess you've gotta substitute for your small crank somehow right?!

    I have several nice timepieces that I've been willed over the years, including several Omegas. But my everyday watch is this one...bought used off Ebay of course.

    I never could adjust to wearing a watch. They've just always been uncomfortable on my wrist. My dad and siblings (male) have wristwatch tan lines. I don't know how they do it. I simply stuff my cell phone into my saddlebag. Although time on a ride is never a great concern of mine. At work, I just look at the clock/clock radio or the computer.

    It took you seven minutes to take three pictures. You are slow.
