    Any watch I have ever worn on my wrist always die within a month and either 5 min before or 5 min after 12. I gave up on watches years ago.

    I did a long time ago. Still have my Yachtmaster. That was always my favorite. If I ever win the lottery I'll be getting the silver Yachtmaster 2.

    ps. Interview = No jewelry & no cologne

    I have a passion for fine watches and had many over the years, recently sold my Rolex Sub but still have my Breitling Crosswind with a blue face, its beautiful and probably my all time favourite watches.

    I always worked in the back of the house (16yrs) so I never wore anything. I appreciate a good watch, my wife has gotten me 2-3 but nothing ever stuck. Force of habit I guess. BUT I will get my dads Rolex sub someday & I'm really looking forward to that, just really nice IMO.

    I have my eyes on an Omega DeVille and a Presidio. I love a nice fine watch, but I'm weird in that I don't care for too many complications on my watches. Give me a great smooth movement with a date feature and that just has a fine clean look and I'm happy.

    I have an Hamilton Intra-matic which I wear for work and a Rugois Skeleton (I think noone have ever hear of it...it just look fancy) for when I go party. However, I've always been attracted to Omega.

    just for looks I love a nice simple shiny skeleton, however practically my eyes have a hard time finding the hands against the back drop of the skeleton. the Rugois is a nice looking party/club wear, I have just a cheap skeleton auto-wind watch that I wear for night outings but to use as a true timepiece I like a solid nice contrast between the face and the hands to see the time easier.

    Got a solid gold yacht master as a gift last year. I don't like any accessories so I put it in my safety deposit box. It is supposed to be worth some decent money. I think Rolex's are bobo, to many fakes out there. And most people who wear them are extremely insecure. There are watches literally 10 x better and a fraction of the price. People just like name brands even if it makes them look unwise! BUT I AM GUILTY OF HAVING ONE, so until I get rid of it I am that guy!!! I think a big G Shock is the best looking watch for all of the above.

    Two very cool watches there.

    I have a custom made Alfa Romeo watch it's a kinetic energy one. I posted a pic on here before I'll try and dig it out. I must start saving again for a decent one again.

    I have busted too many watches to keep trying.
    I usually ask the time of whom ever is near.
    All time is approximate. Makes no sense to me to a always have the time. Once in the morning to head to work follow the heard out the door when it's time to go

    Ok even though I have said a few times I'm not into wrist watches I have to admit that I do like a few of these.

    It's my birthday today. Anyone who was thinking about getting me something even though I would not turn down any of them the one that starts at 24 seconds is my favorite.

    This one would be a close 2nd choice.
