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.

Of these pieces, the Tissot is my favourite - it was the first serious watch I purchased for myself while I was on a trip in Paris. I like the textured face, Roman numeral markers and the black leather strap. It’s automatic, and hasn’t been worn recently but I love it every time I wear it.

The Timex was a gift from my father when I was younger. I’ve since replaced the metal strap with a NATO one off eBay - I wear this in the summer all the time since even if it gets sweaty, you can just toss the NATO strap into the washer with your laundry. Sweat is hell on other kinds of straps.

The “Chanel” and the “Patek” are purely for show - they were cheaper than the Timex. Oddly enough, they both keep time very well, the Patek is a surprisingly decent automatic and the Chanel is quartz, which is kind of a giveaway since I believe all real J12s are automatic. In any case, these were purchased because I love the look and feel of them.

What kind of watches do you guys have and normally wear? What is your perfect/dream watch?

Also, to thank you all for your time, I found two bonus pics on my camera that I had forgotten about:
