Glashutte, Breguet, and a replica A. Lange & Sohne that my wife purchased as a gift, (bless her heart). It actualy keeps decent time from its Chinese? movement, +-10sec month . What I really want is a Vacheron Constantin Tour de i'lle. My daily is a 3 yr old Fossil.

I have multiple "cheap" watches that my kids bought me, a Bulova masonic wrist watch, as well as a pocket watch, a couple old wind-up Timex watches that still work great, a Movado Faceto (wedding gift from wife), and the heart of my collection, a Hiram 14K Gold Triangle Masonic Pocket Watch that used to be my grandpa's. Currently, the last watch is being restored by a jewler friend of mine in Ohio.

I'm not a real dickhead...but I acted like one in high school.

I have a few other everyday watches too not worth mentioning.
