You don't wear one of these do you, (Luftwaffe watch).

The current fad for ever larger watches is beyond me; they look ridiculous to my eyes.

I wear a watch frequently, having few fancy watches made by little old Swiss men and two made by their equivalent in Japan. I think my favorite is a Zenith El Primero Chronomaster.

You might like the U Boat watch as well.

A bit more in scale but still too big for me.

Beau: blue, nice!

GAJ: Just love the image and the dial and the brown leather. I know I can't wear that size (many other people..neither?).

Furthermore, here is my pic in the same color idea from earlier today. It's Swiss at least and not even bought shady-from-the-internet!

<-- blu shirt... red shirt.. :

When I choose to wear a watch, I wear this. My dad took this:


And gave me his watch:


He wanted a less flashy watch to use on a daily basis.

I love watches. I wear high quality replicas of higher end watches. It allows me to have a nice collection and not get bored with just one or two.

i use watches for function specifically. IE date and time at a glance, maybe a countdown timer and/or interval timer.

Ironman timex has been some of my favorite watches. they are very comfortable, have nice features, and a giant easy to read display. as its a digital watch, theres no need to fool with daylight savings time and the dates every month. only bad thing is, they arent durable and parts arent replaceable.

i just bought a g-shock a while ago. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

i like it because i tend to beat my watches up over the course of the day and this one can more or less take a bullet and still be fine. its ugly and bulky and doent have interval timer but its atomic, digital, and has the time zone thing too, so its been very nice. especially during traveling.

I'd like a citizen ecodrive. specifically this one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005BS2NZ6/...=IU7VUSMY3IFLW

same thing: its got a "no need to fiddle with" thing because its got perpetual calendar. its atomic so i dont need to readjust. solar so im not touching batteries. tells me date and time and looks sleek.

Of course, recently i havent been wearing watches because my glove/gauntlets and jacket combo make it very uncomfortable.
