    Watches

    Which ones are your favorites?

    Currently obsessed with this one:

    Ooh, that's very pretty. I keep meaning to buy a watch, but it will probably be a Japanese quartz something-or-other. I'd love to find one that looks like your Jungmans for a reasonable price.

    Swiss made watches for me ... the automatic I'm wearing right now is a Cartier Pasha w/power reserve.

    Swiss Army watches are swiss made and can be gotten inexpensively if you are near New England and willing to drive to their factory sales (twice a year). I've got a bunch of nice ones, all gotten for 30-40% of retail.

    I've got lots of watches- Seiko, Omega, DeBaufre, Hamilton, Stowa, Luminox, Citizen, Archimede. There are 12 that I rotate through for daily wear, a couple for weekends, a couple of beaters, and about 6 others that don't get worn much. Beyond that it is too hard to pick favorites.

    My fiance and I have matching Movados, but my favorites are my Rolex Datejust and TagHeuer Carrera. I have a Swiss Army watch with the Infiniti logo on the dial that was given to me by the dealership when I purchased my latest car. I usually wear that one as my beater.

    This one has a minute repeater and is #001. (the dial is blue - not lavender)

    I like automatics and leather straps. I have the rose gold Corum, two stainless steel Raymond Weils, a stainless Mont Blanc and a Zenith. The Zenith is a comfortable weight and gets the most use. That Corum is heavy.

    I have a wall mounted clock that looks very similar to that.

    Watches are jewelry.

    Oh, not all of them, but all those expensive ones are an excuse for a man to wear jewelry.

    I'll be honest. I don't understand fancy watches. Maybe it's because I'm poor. Maybe it's because my cell phone has a clock on the front of it. But even if I hit the pick-6 and win the $220million, I still would have no use for watches of any sort.
