  4. I wear a fairly average Seiko most days that I picked up for hella cheap in Hong Kong.

    And my good watch is a fairly average Oris that's been in getting a replacement glass since January. Thanks for reminding me to go in this afternoon and get it back off them, fixed or not.

    And I've got my grandfather Omega. I hardly ever wear it.

    I kinda want to get a Sinn too, but there's a few other watches in that price range I'd like.
  5. I have an Omega Geneve that's in need of repairs.
  6. I have a Timex Expedition with a "The Band" band. It probably cost 20 bucks. I need a dress watch, but I need others things more.
  7. that looks really nice dude congrats. i got an esquire something its got diamonds in it for some blingage
  8. Apparently, Oris doesn't consider 6 months to be a very long waiting period to send replacement glass according to my local watchmaker, thus I'm still without it.

    Oris sux's.

    Give me ideas for a Sub-$1k USD watch.
  9. +1 for the oyster. Have/had some myself. If you ever want to sell it, holla at me. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    BTW, Speedmaster>Seamaster <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/PnutSpecial.gif"></A>
  10. What's your style?

    edit: does it have to be new? or can it be used?
  11. Not a chance. My dad bought it the day I was born, and gave it to me on my 21st birthday. I hope to pass it on the same way.
  12. damn, i love that old omega. excellent.
  13. yeah, #$%# that <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
  14. I want a somewhat classic style, so no rotating bezel and nothing too chunky. 'Sports' watches are out. I'm thinking of a Sinn 656 or 356 Flieger at the moment.

    Used would be ok, but it'd have to be from a reputable place. No ebay.

    I need to do a little more research me thinks.
  15. Yeah it's pretty sweet. He bought it almost as soon as he got back from the war. I'd wear it more often, but I'd end up #$%#ing it up or something. Plus it doesn't stay wound for overly long, and is a little small.
  16. my granddad's got something like that, the watch he bought right out of law school and soon before he got drafted. he didnt wear it for ages, but found it again and started wearing it.

    i dont remember what company/model it is (never bothered to look), but it's got one of those cool little bars that flips to red when you need to wind the watch, good stuff.
  17. man are there a lot of watches that rip off the rolex submariner (the first you posted)
  18. I can't find any pictures of my Omega, but it's a late 60s/early 70s Seamaster. I love it, but it isn't in very good working condition at the moment, I need to find a good jeweler around here.
  19. Wheelman would love the first one. I love the second one.
  20. w00t! My Panoz case!
  21. Yeah, it's pretty much the standard look for dive watches these days. That's why I hate dive watches. The only reason why I bought that one was because it's a cheap and ultra reliable automatic.
  22. He probably wouldn't, because it's got a date window. Mrrrrgggh.

    The second's nice, but It's probably gonna cost too much, plus I don't really need/want a chrono. Sinn's are sweet watches for the money though. I've pretty much got my selection down to these 4 watches now:
  23. I like them in reverse order. 4 is awesome, 3 is really nice, 2 is slightly less nice than 3, and 1 is still nice, but less so than the others.
  24. I have a shitty Seiko
  25. Rabbitl1 hehe.

    Anyways now I just use my cell phone as a watch.
