I have that Mark XV and trust me it's fantastic! I've loved that since I 1st saw it in Vanilla Sky. It was then that my naked wrist yearned for an IWC to be wrapped around it. I'm sick i know i know!

I'm biased of course, but I also think so (J/K) Pink and Jude thanks for the very nice comments though

Believe me, I have my eyes on the Mk XV way before Tom Cruise, just that he bought it before I do.

It's not easy to find nowdays...don't think Casio makes Mr-Gs anymore, and that one's been long discontinued. But you can find them around Ebay sometimes for around $150, which is how I got mine.

Actually, this one seems like a lefty version or something...there's one that looks exactly like that, except the dial's on the right, and it has a date window. THAT'S the one I want.

I was given this:



I like it very much. It keeps excellent time, it's very rugged and comfortable. The mechanics are very smooth. The gearing reminds me of a Leica...

This was my graduation watch:



It is beautiful, but a bit more formal. I can wear the GMT master anywhere, but to wear the omega you usually need something a bit more formal...
If I could have any watch though, I would pick this:




Unfortunately it is about 20,000 dollars. I do like it better than their more expensive watches. I think it is the epitome of the classic watch.

My two every-day watches are a Suunto X-Lander and a Rolex Submariner. I bought the Submariner when I was younger (22), and I still wear it from time to time. For practical purposes I much prefer my Suunto X-Lander. It's less flashy (although it's so big, it makes my Submariner look like a ladies watch), it's far lighter (with an aluminum case and carbon fiber back), and it's very informative (stopwatch, timer, alarm, barometer, altimeter, compass, thermometer). The X-Lander fits my personality perfectly: geeky yet rugged.

For a photo of the X-Lander, cilck here (it's the one on the bottom).

One of my local close friends (also a Head-Fi'er) has a very impressive watch collection. If he catches this thread, maybe he'll post about some of the favorites in his collection. He seems to always be picking up fine, new watches. He just visited me recently at my office and had on a new IWC diver's watch that was rated for a depth (2000 meters) that comparatively makes my Submariner seem merely bathtub-worthy. It's called the Aquatimer. I think it's a beautiful watch, for its simplicity, and also because it isn't flashy.
Jude, some beautiful watches there. My Seadweller goes down to 1220 ms and has the helium gas release. It's soooo handy in the shower

Beuatiful, Kevin, though have you thought about getting help for your "large picture" fetish?

I'll give a free advice. If you're like me and don't realy plan to use often those truly expansive watches. I found a Ted Lapidus that could be wear by men or women... and give it as gift to my girlfriend.... you see my point....

OK, I'll try to understand: you buy cheap watches, wear them until they're all scratched up, then wrap them up and give them away as presents to your girlfriend.... At least you know you're probably not attracting "gold-diggers"...

Nice one.

Personally, I've got a classic looking Seiko Quartz, two Boccia titaniums, a Sinn (http://www.sinn-uhren.de/sinn-uhren-...-157-st-ty.htm), and most recently a Seiko Kinetic (nice concept of combining automatic convenience with quartz precision...).

P.S.: I've got comparatively small wrists, so most huge chronographs for men are out for me...

As usual, the boys get all the cool watches and they reserve the crap designs for the women's watches, but I got the last (and maybe the only, who knows?) Seiko Final Fantasy watch in Finland a couple of years back:

. Close but no cigar.... Ted Lapidus is not quite in the cheap watches categoty. In fact I wear the Victorinox for the day to day and I can «borrow» the Lapidus on special occasions.

It's got to be top quality if Spiderman wears it
