What watch are you wearing?

What kind of watch are you wearing? What watch do you hope to purchase next?

Omega Speedmaster X-33.



Custom engraving of an EA-6B Prowler on the back.

I can't think of any watch I want to purchase next. I've had this one for about 10 years now. If it broke, and I couldn't replace it, I'd probably go with a Breitling Aerospace.

I'm not. And I won't be buying one. I have a Victorinox Swiss Army watch I bought new in the early 90's. Needs a new battery. Haven't worn it in several years. I use the clock on my cell phone.

Nexus chronometer with yellow anodized face and stainless bracelet.
I'm eyeing an Invicta with day/date/24h subdials on a green face with a stainless bracelet.

I don't wear expensive watches. I'll spend $75, maybe $100 at the most; but on average I only spend $50 on a watch (I get them on closeout deals. I don't even think the company "Nexus" is around any more.) To me they're just a snappy looking accessory, not a collector's item as they are for some people. I have a few that I wear that don't even work any more; I just like how they look.

and the watch I would like next would be a Laco, Stowa, or Archimede Flieger style watch.

I'm wearing a watch that works.

If and when it dies, I'll be looking for one that works.

Oris automatic diver with blue dial, steel case and steel bracelet. However my daily wear watch is an Oris automatic diver with a white dial, titanium case, and black rubber bracelet (pretty much the same watch and the rubber won't get scratched up from my desk at work).

Next watch purchase:

Not really planning on any in the near future since these two are pretty much perfect for me (in addition to the other Seiko watches I have), but if I were to get another watch it would be either an Orient Star or another Oris Diver with a black dial. Dream watch would be a plain automatic Omega Seamaster with blue dial.

Love Oris as well - great watches! Wish I still had mine. As you mentioned, I sold mine when my wife got me an Omega Seamaster for my 40th b-day...GMTA. They were just too similar-looking to keep both.

I only own 5 watches, I wore this one today. (no particular reason) I would love to own a Breitling that I've seen in a mall in A.C., can't remember the exact model but its a very classic/vintage looking watch.

This one most times. Sweat, sunlight and avgas rotted out the original brown strap, so right now there's a black leather one on it. Someday I'll spring for a nice steel (or ti ) bracelet.



My winter job is as an avalanche tech, so I need an altimeter. I use this one for that:



Someday, when I'm a high-time heli pilot with disposable income (instead of a struggling dirt poor low-timer ), I'd love to have this:

What I'm wearing today, it's an authentic U.S. issue Viet Nam war military watch.

I'm a watch enthusiast and have a number of different watches, mostly inexpensive mechanical watches. I usually wear a different one each week. The majority of them are Seiko but I have a Hamilton, a DeBaufre, an Archimede and a Stowa as well.
