Used to be...had some pretty high dollar stuff. Oddly enough, since July of last year I haven't worn a watch. I guess you could say I became a minimalist!

I just got a very nice 4th generation Citizen EcoDrive, that's radio controlled by the US atomic clock. I like it a lot. It gets more wear time these days than my old Air King, which is saying a lot.

Re: **watch freaks? **

watches are pretty cool
some people say that by looking at a man's watch you can tell more about him than for say... his car, clothing or hair.

i believe the same is true for guitars.

I have a mid 90's rolex gmt red/white that i received for graduating.
I've only worn it once...
Because the day after graduation i bought myself a emporio armani meccanic squareface with a croco band..... it's so cool to watch a self winding watch from the back...

my watches really lie about me.....

That's a good point and that's one reason I don't wear one anymore and became a "minimalist" in some regards, I want to be mysterious.

i hear you on the minamalist thing.....

if you want to adhere to being myserious, wear two swatch's of completely different styles's....maybe that fits better for multi personality disorders and stuff.

Re: **watch freaks? **

Love watches almost as much as guitars. haha Can't afford both thought.
I have 2 Seiko kinetic auto relays, a eco drive Citizen, a Rolex Day/Date and a chinese made automatic.

Re: **watch freaks? **

not much of a watch freak but I have a few "high-end" ones that were family gifts...
I've been wearing this frequently:

Tag Heuer Hakkinen Limited Ed: 1**/2000

I also have another Tag chronograph but not as "slick" as this one and I think the battery died. I also have Burberry watch that I haven't worn as it's too damn fancy for me... would work with a really fancy date at a really fancy place :P
Personally, I prefer Swatch or those oddball Japanese watches like this one I got from bammbamm a while back:

If that is true, then I guess i'm an oddball since I like gimmicky watches as well as classy/fancy watches... and bright neon colored guitars hahaha

Re: **watch freaks? **

nice one's Jbane!

I don't think i could ever feel right buying a super nice watch such as a Bentley Breitling 28k... I'd be thinking....damn i could buy a zemaitis or a collection of rare jem's or idk alot!

awful huh?


If someone see's your first watch jbane.... they'll probably think "pilot"

if the whole watch thing is a female trap..... im gonna go find a hello kitty digital any minute now..... "how cute"

Re: **watch freaks? **

definitely agree with ya... I don't see myself dishing out a mortgage for a diamond-studded/gold plated watch but i'll dish out a car payment for a fancy Swatch with Picasso-style graphics hah
I did a search on the value of that Ltd Tag a while back (which i've had for 10+ years) and it somewhat ranges from a used VWH to a new J-Custom, depending on the condition... Knowing that, I don't wear it when i'm around "da 'hood"... especially when I know what I'm wearing in my wrist is nearly the same price as 3 - 4 of my guitars :\
pilot eh? more like a pilot who can't find the landing gear shift cause I still haven't figured out how 2 of the other chronographs work! :P
As for the female trap thing... if she knows what brand it is and knows it's value, she's definitely high-maintenance

Still enjoying the Shinshoku?
Awesome, it's a great watch, I just wish it fit me.
I'm down to some plain ole watches.
A Citizen, a St. Moritz Titanium diver, and my Movado.
I really want a U-Boat watch, but I don't really wanna drop the 2500-3600 for that watch.
The next best thing is the Welder K-24. You can find 'em for under a G-note, which is still a tough sell for me, but very do-able.
