Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics! - Page 2

post #16 of 8049
I don't have pictures, but I have two nice watches.

A Tag 6000 chronometer with copper toned bezel, and a newer tag kirium (non-chronometer) with a white toned bezel.

My favorite of the two is probably the kirium, because it's bracelt is industructable.

My next watch, I would like to be a rolex daytona ; ] When i start making money again.
mtkversion; you wish!
I don't like iced out watches, let the rappers keep them. I prefer understated : ]

Mine seems to run just fine. Some of my friends say all Rolex watches from the production line is set to keep time faster than normal (I dont know why). You have to have it calibrated in a Rolex service center if you want it to run accurately.

Watches are a very cool passion. My dad has a beautiful Hamilton that he was given by his mother. He used to let me wear when I was young. He still has it, but never wears it. I love that watch, and think classic Hamilton's are awesome. Wish I could afford to collect the older art-deco styles.

Personally, I have only a handful. A nice Timex that my brother & sister-in-law gave me for being their best man. The inscription makes it priceless to me. I also have a neat looking two-faced, classic style, no-name brand that gets a lot of compliments lately, even though I've had it for years. My newest one is a Swiss Army that I won thru work last year. I work for a jewelry company, so they give out nice stuff at Christmas parties. I get a really good discount on the stuff we sell too - Omega, Baume-Marcier, & Tag-Huer are probably the best men's watch lines we sell. I may have have indulge myself some time .

No pictures, but at the moment all I have is a Fossil watch. It serves its purpose, and looks o.k. They aren't terribly well made, though. The brass is just flash plated or something, it gets eaten through terribly easy.

Now in the Money-is-no-object world of my dreams, I'd swing for a Rolex.

Right now, what I really want is a Tissot. A friend of mine had a Tissot Chronograph with a yellow face--I really liked the uniqueness of it, and have been looking for one ever since (hes back in Sweden, so it will still be unique here). Never been able to find one, though.

I have the same watch as IPODSTUDIO. Mine has always run about five minutes fast, and I had it serviced about two years ago. I do love the darn thing though! I also have a TAG from when I was in college. The only thing that gets me with the Rolex is that I take it off on the weekends, and have to set the time every Monday morning I should probably just wind it Friday night
