    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. ;)

    I'm an idiot,I should have noticed that. So is this one a mechanical automatic :) or quartz movement? Any side pics? :)

  • I have a nice Movado I don't wear (I won it/sales contest).
    I do have a few pocket watches, and way too many clocks for around the house.
    My wife makes me store most of em in a box in the garage now that we moved, but my office used to be wall to wall clocks, you could hear ticks in split second formats.
    Relaxing to some, maddening to others, then sometimes, a bit of both.

    I've only got a couple. The fossil, on the right, I bought 20 years ago while working a summer job @ $3 an hour. Put a new battery in it last month and it still ticks.

    My watch budget is nonexistent so I buy beer budget watches as well. Maybe after my $2k per month daycare bill ends in 3 years will I consider moving up the ladder. For now, I'm content.

  • Copy>paste from my original thread:

    Recently acquired my great-grandfather's pocket watch from my dad—a Waltham movement from 1908 inside on an Illinois Watch Case Company Spartan case from the 1920s. A nice addition to the collection.

    I wonder if pocket watches will ever make a comeback. I think it was popular before the advent of the wrist watch, no?

  • From the quick bit of research I did, you would go into a jewelry store and pick out the movement that you wanted. Then, you'd pick out a case for it to be installed in (hence the different manufacturers, like mine above).

    Doubtful.
    Pocket real estate is at a premium with the likes of a wallet, change, keys, phone, pocket knife, etc...
    Add in a pocket watch and you might as well carry a purse.

    Think about that for a moment—you own a timepiece crafted 130 years ago.
