Been a watch guy my whole life. Started with digitals as a kid and now only into mechanicals.

Have a Rolex GMT Master 2 on my radar for my next watch.... and then I feel my collection will be complete for quite some time.

These are my 3 daily wearers:

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Chrono


Seiko SKX009


Omega Speedmaster Professional


And dress watch for those types of occasions
Seiko Cocktail Time


All pics borrowed from the web.

So what are you guys wearing these days?

I'm also getting into collecting mechanical watches, albeit i'm still young and don't quite have the capital to buy high end watches.

However, I do own 2,

1) Hamilton Jazzmaster viewmatic (automatic ETA 2824-2 movement)



2) I have a quartz one as well, not mechanical but I love it for its minimalistic look. This one is Movado Museum sport




both are pics from the internet, but this is how they look.

Next on my watchlist is Tissot and hopefully Omega down the years

A vevet monkey in Zambia stole my Breitling Superocean (shiny gold bits regrettably) in 2002 and after a few weeks of freedom I stopped wearing watches. That monkey may have added a decade to my life as I used to be a bit OCD about the time.

I keep one of these in a neon gas preservation tube back home.
Omega Speedmaster Ref. 145.012 for $7,422 for sale from a Trusted Seller on Chrono24

Apollo moon program flight watch (1967 pre-landing model) willed to me by a family friend who worked at NASA.

Edit: I found an example of the monkey purloined piece.. I hate that monkey. It really was nice https://www.ebay.com/itm/BREITLING-Superocean-K10040-18K-1000M-Limited-Edition-Dive-Watch-MINT-/282014221435

Solid choice on the Omega!

I wear a manual wind Speedmaster which cues my routine to start the daily prep. I've conditioned myself in a Palovian sense. =) I also use the timer function to help me get an objective perspective of time to realize that I may not have given a trade enough time to develop, just psychologically because 1 minute can seem like an eternity if I'm sitting there reading the time and sales log.

Interesting observation, I rather find time to go quite quicker and I often end up realizing several hours have passed by when it really felt like I'm only an hour in!

I like watches but I don't wear one. If I were using one it would be a wood watch.



Fun fact: John Meyer is a watch aficionado with a 6 million dollars collection.

Garmin ForeRunner 235.

It's a great watch, for a beginner runner like me.

Don't mind having a Rolex, but for now, it's FR235.

Yes, I know what you mean. I love winding up my Speedie in the morning as well. For me, the day has yet to start until I give my Speedie a nice winding and have my morning coffee

Their newer Heritage line is quite sexy. Has that slightly vintage yet modern vibe to it. They also have it in a limited edition green bezel which is quite the looker in person.

There are quite a few makers in Colombia. e.g. Mistura Colombia
https://amanoartisans.com/collections/unisex-maguaco-wood-watches

BTW thats Colombian Pesos not USD x-rates.com to get an idea.

I see wooden watches and sunglasses in a lot of stores here, at least three local makers.

My GF was laughing at me for dejectedly looking at pics of my Breitling last night. I only had it for 5 weeks, it was a gift. I even had a chamois leather cover (just push to one side to see the dial) to hide it when wearing as having your arm chopped off with a machete in town (Africa) can be inconvenient. To keep the leather dry I took that off in the jungle lodge shower... amateur move.

Edit: Idea, I run a homeless charity here, we might look at making and selling smartwatch covers for the poor to sell. Though security is good now, there is a tradtion of not wearing jewlery, few married women wear their rings for example. Might be popular though minimal profit.

Someting that I think gives me an edge trading is that I can control my perception of time pretty well and I do know the approximate time in my head. Something I could not do when I wore a watch I must admit, I used to constantly look at my wrist for something my mind could do. Maybe a cover could tempt me to get a smartwatch for trading alerts.

I absolutely love my Tissot. It's not to bulky (always hated those HUGE ass faced watches!) and is clean and elegant.

Here is my watch:

It was a gift from a gf.

I liked it for the same reasons you did.

One day it stopped keeping time, or stopped altogether.

I was pissed, but to busy to do anything about it.

Well I could but I would not know if I'd gone insane yet. Obscure Blue Thunder movie reference there. Also my taskbar minimises.

I probably still have mine in a drawer somewhere. I wanted the helicopter but I saved and got this instead.




Edit: pondering it a little, Blue Thunder may have started my interest in relative time perception control.

A wristwatch is now more of a personal preference and interest. Those of us who buy an expensive wristwatch do not simply buy to tell the time (although that is what it does on its face value), but rather for the fine intricate movement running the watch and fine details of the artwork.

While it is not something one ponders upon every time someone looks down at their watch, but it is definitely a major reason why people still buy elegant timepieces. A well built watch can last more longer than most relationships, jobs interest and even your trading consistency since we are on a trading forum LOL

While watch collection may not be your cup of tea, I'm sure there must be other things you have a passion for ? like cars, engines, planes. to me those are just a piece of metal/ plastic etc working to power the car, plane etc. to someone else it's some x amount of HP, some intake, some V level crap. n so forth.

best wishes,

John

Radio station WWV, Fort Collins, Colorado. The atomic clock.

I want to wear that on my wrist. 1-303-499-7111.

How heavy is an atomic clock, and does it go better with a leather or metal wristband?

On my 4th Seiko diving type watch. Like the solar. Spend a lot of time white water rafting and fishing. Life is good when not in phone service. When you break a Seiko it does look like what cartoons show.... Not a big phone guy.

Casio makes an atomic watch that syncs with that very tower daily and the 5 other atomic clock towers around the world. So your watch will be within 1 second of accuracy everyday for the life of the watch. Pretty cool.

Great choice. I love Seiko dive watches. Had 3 and gave 2 away to people who wear them daily. Still wear my SKX009 every so often and took it on my honeymoon.

At the risk of public shaming, I must say that I want the rev. 2 Apple Watch now.

This is after Horace Dediu said that he has found the fitness tracker functionality to be life changing and that he and his other early adopter friends have lost weight due to the heightened daily activity that started when they got their Apple Watches. I am a big fan of QS.

I realize that there are other fitness trackers, such as Fitbit, but I am already dialed into the Apple platform so I would prefer something that works seamlessly with my environment. Anyway the Apple Watch is more powerful than Fitbit.

Now, another thing is that the new Apple Watch is going to have a Pokemon Go app, and it's been suggested to me that this might be a fun activity to pursue with my ten year old, who is avid about Pokemon Go. More quality time outdoors with the daughter, chasing Pokemons.

I´m probably going to get one soon. I talked to a guy who has one of these in black. Seemed quite elegant in concept and he was pleased with it, horses for courses I guess. I gather Nokia have bought them.

Strange that i such a topic nobody mentioned IWC ) I'm a fan of IWC, Breitling, Tag Heuer and Seiko. Also like Hamilton. But on my wrist there are more affordable Skagen from last Queen Collection. Perfect simple northen european design and reliable Japanese Miyota machine inside )

This thread has got me in trouble. Because of my limited Spanish I accidentally told my GF she could have any watch she wanted for Christmas.. well she loves astronomy and has excellent taste, found this on Google images.

Van Cleef & Arpels Complication Poetique Midnight Planetarium... $$$ so I told her its a man's watch and too big for her so I'd give $5k to a sight saving charity instead. Whew, good save (even if she was not serious). I will have to get her something reasonable but just a smart watch.

Its kinda nice though.

This thread has got me in trouble. Because of my limited Spanish I accidentally told my GF she could have any watch she wanted for Christmas

I tell the GF she can have a bag of Skittles.

Be careful saying that in Spanish, it could mean anything. To be honest she was blown away by good raspberry jam and bitter orange marmalade I got this week. Skittles could work..

Also she had Philadelphia cream cheese for the first time.. its like heroin for Colombian women, especially with imported raspberry jam.

This thread has got me in trouble. Because of my limited Spanish I accidentally told my GF she could have any watch she wanted for Christmas.. well she loves astronomy and has excellent taste, found this on Google images.

Van Cleef & Arpels Complication Poetique Midnight Planetarium... $$$ so I told her its a man's watch and too big for her so I'd give $5k to a sight saving charity instead. Whew, good save (even if she was not serious). I will have to get her something reasonable but just a smart watch.

Its kinda nice though.


Oooh, that is nice! Me want!

I am finding I have a watch-afficionado bug in me that I do not want to let out of it's cage, for it will consume me. I must view this thread at my own peril. Ack!

If I were going to blow some perfectly good trading capital on a perfectly ungrateful partner, it would be one of these Omega Ladymatic DeVilles. The most beautiful woman's watch.

I recall thinking a decade ago that this ~1979 quote from the Hitchhiker's guide seemed quite dated, but its back!



My lady is getting a smartwatch or an engagement ring for Christmas. I'm rooting for naughty but nice would be a change of pace.

I am an Omega fan, the moon watch reputation for mechanical excellence. I have an old ladies gold bracelet (I cannot post a pic yet until I have 5 posts) but it still works. Maybe I will part ex-change it to the new generation.

I've started, ahem, collecting watches to some extent and thus far only have Rolex and Ball watches in my true stable.

I have a few older watches that I haven't worn in years, but the dailys are Ball and Rolex for the special occasion or weekends.

Current favorite weekend watch: Rolex Milgauss, blue face, green crystal.

Current favorite daily watch: Ball Trainmaster Eternity.

For some reason, I got suckered into pledging for this Kickstarter campaign.

Just added this to my collection.

The Speedmaster and now the Seamaster. Both put a big smile on my face everytime I put it on in the morning.

I'm considering selling my Tag Heuer. It is a great watch, nice solid build, but a bit on the heavy and bulky side. I think the trend of oversize watches is starting to die off now. And as I get a little older, I prefer comfortable, daily wear type watches and go with anything.

Seiko SNZH55. Good watch for the money. The Seiko 5's have a pretty large customization community too if you're into that type of thing. Pretty common to mod it to look like a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.

If you're looking for watches I'd also recommend checking out MassDrop, that's where I got mine!

I've always been a Seiko Kinetic guy. Too lazy to wind or change batteries, and they come in a variety of styles. This latest version was a Christmas gift from my wife.
