What watch do you wear? Been looking at getting myself a new timepiece so I was wondering what watches you lovely gentlemen wear.

Lovely watch, does the brown strap go with basically anything? A lot of the watches I like have a brown strap.
It originally had a black strap but was broken during a particularly rough bedroom session. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

I think brown is defo in now (much like with shoes) so opted for the brown strap replacement and I've never been happier.

Got a Breil watch for my 30th a while back from my dad. Didn't wear it all that much, but have started to latterly since he passed a few months back. Its a nice watch, but the strap gets caught on my wrist hair occasionally and that can be annoying! :D

I'm terrible with watches i.e. I've got way more than I need and wear a different one most days. Last purchase was:



I like the IWC Da Vinci range, although about £20k...



Also like these two Breitling's at £17k and £6k...:blush:

Mine, a bit battered from constant use since purchase (used to be my dads too) but I love it.



I have a few others which i wear sometimes. An Invictus (which I actually really like), a DKNY and a Bulova

One day I WILL have the 2nd Breitling Imp posted



Wanted for many, many years.

A quality time-piece maketh a man

I've got a Citizen Eco-Drive watch too, was a 21st birthday present. I really like it, would be pretty happy to never need another watch.

A man can, nay should be judged by his watch collection :happy: the good thing about Eco-Drives is that you can leave it off for a while in favour of another and not have to worry about the battery running out.

By the way, really enjoyed Dubrovnik mate. It was ridiculously hot (35-40 all week), especially in the old town with the walls holding all the heat in but it's an absolutely beautiful part of the world. When you went was the restaurant there at the top of the cable car? unbelievable views

Unless you can afford to spend at least 15 grand why would you bother? Just look like a peasant.

I've got a couple of watches, both cheap ones, a £40 Sekonda which I've had for about 10 years and a Smiths Empire 5 jewel wind up mechanical watch which my old Dad bought in 1945 when he was demobbed from the Royal Navy, apart from several new straps the only repair to the smiths watch was to have a new dial glass fitted years ago.

I hate watches, don't like the look of them at all. It just feels so pointless, just check your phone you luddites! :D
NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Watches are, with cufflinks, a fantastic piece of male jewelry which are not to be overtaken by fucking iPhones! You got that?

Can your watch receive nudes, send nudes, take pictures of funny looking people or act as a spirit level or flashlight as well as tell the time?

Didn't think so, checkmate watchaphobes!
Maybe he has one of these...



...if you need to take a picture of a funny looking person you have to ask them to read the time from your watch as you can't do it yourself...*snap picture*...then you run off laughing.

Got a watch as my graduation present, before that it's not something I've really bothered with Not necessary something I would have chosen myself but still looks pretty decent. Most of the watches I've seen in the past which I like the face is way too big and wouldn't suit me with my tiny wrists!

The pops gave me this when I was about 18.



I buggered the clasp though when I was out my nut the other night, not just buggered it but lost the whole part! That'll cost a few quid :ffs:

You know those Simpsons watches you used to get in cereal packets (think you had to collect however many tokens)? Well I got the black one from that, still have somewhere.

Favourite watch I've ever had, so ya can keep them 17k Breitlings

I had one similar to the one Ellis posted. I liked it, was simple and looked smart. Lost both my watch and my phone at Cambridge away last season though. Not had one since, Although do always get tempted to buy a new one.
