Dude, your life is seriously out of balance: Mid five figures in watches, and a Giant Defy? WTF?:rolleyes:

I am new to cycling so give it some time and I am sure the bike may change in the future. In the mean time, its the best bike that I have ever ridden. I just need to keep getting out consistently in the mean time. I haven't earned a better bike yet. I am embarrassed enough riding my Defy as it is (Bike is better than me)

BTW, you may know cycling, but you're way off on the watch cost estimate...:)

I didn't take the time to add to look at the particular models, or try to price them. My point is that its an order of magnitude above your bike. My guess, again without considering the particular models, age and condition, used auction prices for the entire collection could be in 5 figures, full retail well into 6 figures. 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. :)

VERY cool!

Gramercy 09-23-13 12:45 PM

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.

vikz 09-23-13 04:13 PM

No Rolex or TAG watches but I do love watches, my favorite is my citizen titanium eco-drive, very light.The Swiss Army watch was my very 1st watch i bought when I 1st got here in the US of A..

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.

Omega Speedmaster Racing

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?

Still one of my favorites.

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 :-)
