    Now I don't want to post today's choice. You have me all self-conscious now!

    No Apple Watch shots yet?


    Hmm guess not. My coworker has one. It's pretty neat but not for me at this time.

    I was looking for this one on the EvineLive Invicta show last night. This one is in gunmetal? Yeppers Joey, that Tag is sharp looking!

    Thanks P2009! I like how the sun just shines off the crown... so impressive in real life. I'm lucky to have this piece. My 3 other Rolexes are gathering dust since January of this year. The 4th Rolex (submariner) is my work watch so there is no way that'll gather dust. Hahaha

    I keep it simple, I have two of these:

    One is my casual watch that I swap out different NATO bands on, depends on my mood!

    The other one is my work watch with a classic leather band.

    I can respect everyone's opinion , some people aren't into collecting watches or appreciate them and that's cool. Maybe they are into other hobbies and find joy with that. I'm more than happy to hear what others enjoy collecting out there. :)

    Very classy watch upstate! Reminds me of the 1960's. Love the look of the guilloche like styling done on the dial.

    I was joking around earlier....but that is funny. The main reason I gave up onnwearing a watch was changing the dead batteries. If I could find something that measured barametric pressure and didnt run on batteries, i would buy it.....

    Pressure readings, can't help you there. lol

    But I have not changed a battery in YEARS...

    Buy an automatic watch. Automatic watches will wind themselves as you move your arm. Boom! No more batteries!

    Yep, automatics are great! No more batteries, no more taking to some shady guy in the mall to scratch up the backplate trying to pop it out. I remember I had a kenneth cole watch that my wife gave me when we started dating.. I could not get the battery replaced, the watch people scratched up the back trying to get it out and gave up and gave it back to me.

    Poor watch, I really liked that piece too.

    Her arms must be covering up the Swiss Made designation on the dial.

    Looks very nice Zltful, like a military style dial layout. Sorry to hear about the Kenneth Cole getting scratched up on the back due to some incompetent bozo. :'(

    I know this feeling. Which is why I rarely take my watch off. Watches and a belt without them I feel naked and feel like my wrist is much lighter.

    Invicta Speedway series. Couldn't remember if I posted this one before and I am too lazy to search back through the thread...

    Invicta I-Force. Being left handed, I am not sure I like the crown location. Surprisingly heavy for its size.

    I have a collection of low end watches, but the one I wear every day and actually put "wear" on with scratches from almost 20 years of use is my Omega Seamaster Professional. Dad bought it when 007 GoldenEye came out since it was Bond's watch. He gave it to me shortly thereafter and I have worn it every day since. I think I was like 12..... Love the watch and I think in my life I may buy ONE more like it to pass down to my kid(s). It's never failed me.

    Zltful, where are the function pushers for the subdials? I think I see one sticking out under the bezel by the 35 minute mark on the dial? Does this have the leather strap? I do like the color arrangement of silver,black and red highlighting.

    No function pushers. The sub-dials are redundant of the main dial. Smaller one is second counter while the larger sub is a 24 hour dial.
    It does have a leather band and it wears really comfortably so far.


    No sweat @DSkip it isn't my first choice either but it is growing on me and matches well with my black and red Ducati shirts. ;)
