Here’s my little collection. The ones on either end of the top row were my Christmas gifts. Then I’ve got a Moto 360 smartwatch. The nasty green one is the one I wear for serving tables so it takes a massive beating. Had it over 5 years though and it still works great.
For Christmas I got a Swatch Sistem51, which is a watch I have been wanting for a long time, and my first automatic. This color was always my favorite, and I'm pretty lucky to have gotten it, as this particular color combo is discontinued. Anyone else receive a watch for the holidays?
Took the watch off while I was eating, laid it next to my keys, and decided that this was a lovely time for a shot. The iPhone6 camera continues to surprise me with the quality of it’s pictures. That and after a few tips from Kevin McCauley, I feel confident using it as my only camera when I travel light.
After seeing a couple of Rolex pieces on here I thought I’d share my modest collection of watches. One caveat here: the two fanciest pieces are the ones with which you should be least impressed.
It is in much better shape than I thought it could be. This Raketa is a soviet design and mechanism but built just after the fall of the USSR so the face says “Made in Russia” in Cyrillic letters of course. Not bad for $50 shipped from russia and with a band.
I just bought this Raketa. Yes, I know it isn’t as cool as a Big Zero, but it does have a good look. I don’t actually know much about it, not even the model name. Anything y’all can tell me about it? Oh, also, I’m off to Belize for a week so I won’t be around much.
My company mandated uniform compliance timepiece - we have to wear a watch. Employee handbook says so - was mistaken for a Brietling from ten feet away. This is the exact watch. It’s sexy enigmatic features include a digital half that couldn’t keep time and a mechanical part that kept amazing time, courtesy of the …
The ontological discussion about the necessity of the Apple watch has forced me to reevaluate one of my more embarrassing facets: I am a Watch Guy. It’s a hobby that instantly brands you as one of those kinds of people – the ones that live in a world of leased 320i’s with eBay M-badging, webbed belts adorned with the…
So far, nothing has come out of Baselworld 2015, other than Tag Heuer making a few big splashes. Not all for the correct reasons in my opinion, as their special editions seem to get weirder, and more out of their home in Motorsport. Their big news, teaming up with intel and Google for a smart watch, is probably their…
Unless you are at the gym, cycling, or running like a mad man/woman around the city I might accept you wearing one of the mentioned above. Under all other circumstances, there is only one square watch that belongs on my wrist and yes, it only tells me the time and date, but it does it with an outer coolness and subtle…
The man responsible for this beauty:
I was browsing around a local luxury watch retailer (since I can't afford any of them) and I came across one of these, a Breitling Transocean. Damn this looks classy as fuck in person and the globe has a nice sheen to it. The attention to detail is exquisite but that's to be expected from a Breitling.
Anyone know of good places to order specific parts to create a kit to make my own custom watch?
So I'm just getting into watches. Got this nice Republic watch for X-mas
Looks like the the folks at Autodromo have been busy again. A watched based on Vic Elford's 1968 Porsche 907? I'm sure the colour combo is not for everyone, but I think personally this looks quite good. Except the price $775 (yikes!). what do you folks think?
Just ordered this Autodromo Veloce!
Gadget nuts have CES, kids at heart get Toy Fair, video gamers have E3, but if it's watches that ring your bell, every spring you'll want to head over to Basel, Switzerland for Baselworld. It's where the world's horological masters gather to unveil their latest timekeeping works of art. And these are the most…
