  A quick question about the water resistance of your timepieces. Mine are two at 10 ATM and 1 and 3ATM. Ironically the most expensive one is only 3 Bar and only Stainless Steel. Is WR important to you or is it just a gimmick to you?
WR is important.................if you plan to get your watch wet. 
 
A dress watch will have a lower WR and a dive watch will have much higher WR. 
 
Personally, I don't get any of my watches wet.

Yeah that kind of makes sense. The Tissot is more dressy than for swimming with Free Willy.

I appreciate WR in case things happen, but it's certainly not a requirement. My Tissot is 200m, and if I accidentally fall (read: am pushed into) a pool/lake, then the watch will be fine. I have other watches that are 5-10 Bar.

-To me, WR is very important - I tend to get wet quite a bit, hence it makes sense for my watches to be able to be drenched and still live to tell the tale, too. While I do not need, say, 600m or 1200m of WR, it does offer some comfort knowing that even if I don't replace any O-ring annually, my watch stands a good chance of surviving a swim or getting drenched in whatever my employer sees fit to drench me in - more often than not hydraulic fluid... :/
 
Also, to some extent, WR goes hand-in-hand with ruggedness; say, a watch rated to 600m/2000ft by nature has to be quite robust.
 
Ironically, as I am typing this, I am wearing my Speedmaster, which if memory serves is rated to 50m on a good day. Good thing I didn't get seriously wet today.

Lovely Rasta! Maybe I will pick one up in Singapore if a shop has one available.

Well I do get a lot of "Ooh, that's a neat looking watch"

I bet you do! :wink:



Just purchased another G-Shock as a present to myself for turning in a huge assignment on Saturday. I've been looking for this one for about 4 months and was able to get it at my local Macy's. Still need to post the 2 that I purchased (same limited series line; one for my fiancée and one for myself) before posting the one I purchased tonight.

That looks amazing.

...here some more pics, now with my wife's 1970s Rolex Cellini. Actually one of the few Rolex I really like... there were quite a number versions of this Cellini on the market with differently colored dials, but I only like this one, with the deep black dial... a super beauty...
 

 
...and sorry for putting the Breitling the wrong way round... I am so much used to have the crown on the right side (which in this case is the wrong side :)
 

 
-cheers-
