A friend of mine was cleaning out his watch collection a few months ago and sent me a couple of cheap quartzes that he didn’t wear anymore. After swapping out the battery and taking a link out of the bracelet, I’m wearing this Citizen for the first time today.
Picked up this Casio World Time on Amazon the other day. Band feels cheap, but is easy to adjust. Simple enough to set and easy to read. Saves 5 time zones, which is pretty cool to have. Overall, very happy with it!
Spent last week stuck on a cruise ship with a seemingly unlimited supply of Alcohol and took advantage of the duty free shop to step up my watch game.
Am I wrong? Also, it looks really real but the rear case raises some questions. At $349, though, it’s a deal.
My Weekender Chrono arrived in the mail. It looks good, feels right on the wrist, and has a khaki strap.
So, I’ve decided that when I finish my Master’s degree I’m going to gift myself a four-figure watch. I have my $99 Fossil Aviator automatic and a Timex Weekender coming in from Amazon today. I wanted a khaki fabric strap.
I wore this watch for five years before I bought the Rolex. Before I got my Datejust, I always viewed the Rolex as too small, I think my opinion has changed.
I really like the customization options and flexibility, but unless you really need the phone tethering and the fitness options, I don’t like the idea of having another device to recharge.
I might have been messing with everyone when I posted a picture of a Tag Heuer Connected Modular, but I did actually did get slightly intoxicated and order it online. I got it from Tourneau. I was planning on getting it this month and they happened to have a 10% off sale, so I said what the hell and got it. It’s…
My ORIS apparently also needs service (running too fast), so now I’m on my 1940 Bulova.
The day has come, the DMC watch arrives, the Unboxing begins...
A nice watch is a nice watch. I wear for functionality and taste. I don’t wear for name brand satisfaction (cough * Rolex) as honestly, the name is 80% of that $9,000 diver. But when I see something really nice and well done (Like this Vostok Special Edition above) I stumble when I see the color. I’m just not the guy…
New Watch, first true 24HR. Love it.
Dropping off my Hamilton for service (the stem decided it was done being a stem), I wandered over to the TAG section and got to paw-up one of these. It was enormous and gorgeous, but that $5K price tag is really steep, considering for about half you can get an Aquaracer or Carrera.
My newly running Soviet watch next to my seiko 5 which I believe just has a broken pendulum connection (If thats what it’s called that propels an automatic movement).
Well, looks like I’ve been bitten by the watch bug. I bought this Seiko SNK(Seiko 5) about two months ago and have worn it every day since. It’s my first automatic and really my first ‘real’ watch, besides a few digitals I’ve had over the years to wear while camping or traveling and one of those classic plastic…
In fact, this may be the first one I’ve owned as an adult. But I like the simple design and the price was right ($7.88 at Wally World). I’ve also been without a watch for a while as the wood one I was wearing on fire day is still lost in the move somewhere.
The watch is powered by two automatic Eta movements, which gives it proportions that mirror the art deco pieces people wore during the era of its namesake, the 1939-41 BMW 335. Thanks to the simple vintage gauges that inspired this design, the hands, indices, and numerals are quite plain. There isn’t even a BMW…
