That is the one I got used. I love it, wear it all the time. All the rest of mine are TAG Heuer.
When doing really grubby work I take my watch off or work where impact will be involved.
I do not wear them sleeping or in the shower.

I can't believe this gay thread is still alive



OTOH, if anyone would like to talk about Benjamin Moore paints and which of its off-white colors you like best, I'm game. :gay:

as far as the color names go, the best one is Benjamin Moore AC-8.

Alot of people here wear them to work each day, I'm in the habit of only buying French cuffs at the moment, I think the trick for office workers is to buy the small ones so that they don't get all buggered up when using a computer.

Owie! That hurt.

The original point of the thread was to discover what activity would cause a person to remove a 4 figure timepiece to keep it from being damaged. When I first got mine, I was determined to wear it everyday but I walked around like my arm was broken so I wouldn't nick it.

Last week I reinstalled the seats in my SL and never gave it a thought except to see how long the freakin' job was taking. I'm pretty sure I'd take it off to replace the water pump, however.

If Teutone doesn't have a high dollar watch that he wears even while he's using a wrench, I'd be surprised, at this point.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Cheap Wig

A MAGISTRATE who gave his wife a Rolex watch that had been accidentally dropped in a supermarket by its real owner has been convicted of theft.
Geoffrey Rowlett pocketed the £3,200 lady’s watch instead of handing it to police or trying to trace the owner. He then gave it to his wife, Margaret, as a 60th birthday present.



The deceit was not exposed for almost another two years when he took the watch to be repaired and the jeweller checked the serial number against a list of Rolex watches reported lost or stolen.

Rowlett, a magistrate for more than 30 years, was questioned by police but instead of telling the truth he made up a story to convince them he had come across it legitimately.

He claimed he had bought the gold watch for £1,500 in a bric-a-brac shop while on his way to a Freemasons’ meeting in Portsmouth.

However, he was unable to provide a receipt and claimed not to remember the name or exact location of the shop. In an attempt to give his story more credibility, Rowlett hired a private detective to try to find the shop after police told him they had drawn a blank.

Using records from his supermarket loyalty card, police were able to prove that he had visited the Tesco store in Poole, Dorset, within two hours of the watch’s real owner on January 16, 2002.

Rowlett, 67, from Poole, was convicted of theft at Southampton Magistrates’ Court and fined £600 and ordered to pay £400 costs. He had denied the charge.

District Judge Roger Ede told him: “The conviction is the real penalty for a man of your standing. It was an act of folly and an incredible story.”

Rowlett refused to comment after the hearing other than to say he intended to appeal.

But Detective Sergeant Ben Hargreaves, of Poole CID, said: “As a magistrate he certainly couldn’t argue that he didn’t know the law.

“He was given every opportunity to tell the truth but chose to keep his lies going. It is not the sort of behaviour you expect from a magistrate.”

The Rolex has now been returned to its owner, a widow who had been given it by her late husband.

Rod Brummitt, justices’ chief executive at Dorset Magistrates’ Court, said that Rowlett had been suspended as a magistrate as soon as the allegation came to light. He said: “He retains his status as a magistrate and any further action will not be taken until we know whether there is to be an appeal.

“It would be our expectation that the magistrate would resign. He has been a long-serving and distinguished magistrate in many ways, but clearly we cannot and do not condone that sort of offence

The case of the magistrate shows that greed will get you every time.
I am definitely lusting after the Breguet Sympathique 6120ZD/12 clock and wrist watch set. The wristwatch sits in a recess of the clock to stay wound and on time. A great piece of craftsmanship. I am afraid to ask for the price though. http://www.breguet.ch/en/welcome.html , collections, timepieces, special creations, click on watch
