    Haha. No doubt. But financially, watches are a far better choice, as I don't think I've had a single piece of audio gear appreciate in value, whereas 3 out of the 4 watches I've purchased in the last 2 years have.

    Maybe one day my watches can balance out my audio losses. LOL.

    I'm not very much into collecting watches but I was gifted a Movado Museum silver and can appreciate the quality and craftsmanship.

    I had an Uncle who would cruise by thrift shops and buy then resell watches on eBay. Made some good money.

    Yes I agree.

    My investment is safe with my 4 Rolexes. I think I spent $30,000 on the 4 and I believe resale market has them pegged at approximately $35,000.

    While not a huge increase in the 8 years I’ve owned them, Atleast I’m not in the hole as I would be with audio gear.

    Latest acquisition. This is quickly becoming my favorite watch in the collection. It's the basic Orient Mako II. For a little over $100 initial investment, it looks/feels like a watch worth 10 times that.

    I plan to eventually replace the flat mineral crystal with a double dome sapphire crystal with blue AR coating. Also planning on replacing the bracelet with a Strapcode Super Oyster. Might also try a Nato strap on it too.

    Wow. How did I not see this thread a while ago!

    Yes been through much more watches than audio gear it seems. Have some i wished I had never let go. Current collection below. Most notable are the Fortis and the Omega.

    Really like the Seamaster Joe! Of course I'm also partial to the Orient and the Seikos - great bang for buck watches.
  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 3,232
    That Orient keeps amazing time
    I had a Ulysse Nardin 1846 Chrono that I gave to my dad
    I wanted him to enjoy it for now as those timepieces stay with families for some time
    and I am sure to see it again (sometime later I hope)

    I had an Uncle who would cruise by thrift shops and buy then resell watches on eBay. Made some good money.


    I have a Movado series 800 that I purchased off John Megadeth. Nice watches, very good quality, look great and affordable.

    Some very nice timepieces shown here.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    I have a Seiko kinetic watch that was my grandpa’s. He would wear it to church every Sunday, but wouldn’t wear it throughout the week. I heard from my mom that he would sit in the car shaking it up and down. Lol.
    He eventually got a new watch, and this one sat around for a while. He then later gave it to me. Wore it every day for a year until one of the leather bands came apart just a few weeks ago. I have yet to fix it... I need to do that. :)
    I’ll post some pics once I fix it.

    Nice watch Joe. I love the mechanical watches! Can't bring myself to get a apple watch, as the technology is outdated in very short order. What are they up to now? version 4 in just a few years? The mechanical watches are timeless (no pun intended)! :smile:

    I also have 2 SuperOceans (blue and coral) - love em!

  • I’m in tech and for the life of me can’t buy into the Apple Watch. I know it’s cool but laptop, tablet and phone is enough connectivity for me.

    This was a gift for High School Graduation in 1987, my first Mechanical watch, Seiko 6309. Had it refreshed about a year ago and wear on occasion.

  • I love my tech, and I finally bought an Apple Watch earlier this spring.

    I returned it about two hours later.

    I love mechanical watches too much.

    Always loved those. Almost bought one way back but purchased the Fortis Spacematic instead.
    The Apple Watch is more of an availability to be reached than anything for me. Having it just vibrate on my wrist in meetings or on jobsites and not have to deal with a phone ring tone, worth it for me personally.
    But when I’m not on the clock, I wear one ;)

    Legit watch, I had the Bond blue at one time! The dial and the band is so nice.

    I found the bracelet to be better than my Rolexes.

    My Seiko kinetic watch. Not sure on model. I need to get the capacitor swapped for a battery, but I keep telling myself “that’s $50 you could put towards audio gear.” :) The gold piece that goes over the date on the right side fell off, and got stuck up in the top. I want to get it out, but I need a special tool, and once again, that’s $30 I could put towards audio.
    (Edit:) the lighting in the picture of the watch on my arm is weird, so it looks like the watch is so tight that it is cutting off circulation and making it purple. It is not. :)

  • Just curious. To those of you that have self winding watches, do you use an automatic watch winder? I don't wear my Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 every day, and sometimes I will keep it wound using an automatic watch winder. Sometimes I just let it wind down and I rewind it by hand when I want to wear it.5vw3kgh385qb.jpg

    I use a watch winder most of the time. I have one similar to yours above, and also have a modular system so that I can add to it (currently 4 modules), instead of buying yet another watch winder!

    At first it was kinda cool, in a Rube-Goldberg kinda way. But now I'll just manually wind the one I want to wear that day. If I wear it consecutive days, it'll rarely require winding.

    In fact, since I've moved into the new house, I have yet to plug my watch winders in!

    To use a watch winder, or not, is about as intense a discussion as are cable discussions on this forum, I might say! :smile:

    Joey_V (or anyone else who might know), my Breitling Super Ocean from about 2008 has died. Any loose guestimate on what I might expect for a repair/ tune up to cost? I’ve heard anywhere from 600-1200, which is quite the range, and I don’t know why it stopped so I don’t have any specifics as to what’s wrong.

    I use a watch winder most of the time. I have one similar to yours above, and also have a modular system so that I can add to it (currently 4 modules), instead of buying yet another watch winder!

    At first it was kinda cool, in a Rube-Goldberg kinda way. But now I'll just manually wind the one I want to wear that day. If I wear it consecutive days, it'll rarely require winding.

    In fact, since I've moved into the new house, I have yet to plug my watch winders in!

    To use a watch winder, or not, is about as intense a discussion as are cable discussions on this forum, I might say! :smile:

    I'm like you. If I wear it consecutive days, it doesn't require winding. It's only if I let it sit for 2 or 3 days. And I agree with what you said about "winder discussions". I thought I would stir the pot a little. :D I would never bring that subject up on a watch forum. Politics is easier to argue than watch winders, and cables too I would add! :)
