I know most of the Benz enthusiasts are into watches too...:D..

Wearing a watch give a statements of what type of a person you are, what kind of cars you into, and etc.....

I want to know what kind of watches are you into, what kind of watches do you own, what kind of watch do you wear with your SL, and what is your dream watch of owning...;)..

I'm thinking of getting another watch, but don't know which one yet...:rolleyes::confused:.

Any recommendation are welcome...:thumbsup:..

Post some pictures of your watches if you like...:).

Thanks....:)

My best watch currently would be my Tag Kirium. I had an Omega Seamaster a few years back but sold it to my brother. Then I have a Lacoste, a few Seikos, a Coleman for camping and a Eletta Albatross that I picked up in Portugal a few years ago also.

The watch I wear usually depends on what I am wearing or where I am going. My next watch I would like a Rolex Deepsea and the watch I absolutely love is the Rolex Daytona.

Well, I have to say that my hobby is watch making I love to spend hours with the smallest of smalls I own 70 watches and in my draws I have more to come. My wife loves to talk to me when I have a part that can't be seen without a 20x. Got to love her.
Today I am wearing a DIY that has a 2836-2 auto movement with a 18k WG case and 42 diamond bezel, The dial is blue with my name in it. At the top ZUPITO and at the bottom LZ. Sorry I can talk about watches all day. Before I got hurt on the job my last store bought watch was a blue dial 116619 in white gold
For you Tony a nice GMT pepsi will be nice on you (last pic).LZ

I don't know where my watch is right now; I'll need it for a business trip soon though so I'll look for it tomorrow. It's a fairly decent Skagen, Stainless steel mesh band. No date on the face so as I fly back and forth I just adjust the time and never have to worry about the date being right.
I use my iPhone as my "watch"!
I also have PC's, laptops and an iPad which I use as my "clocks".

it depends on my mood really. it also depends what i will be doing in the day with what i shall wear.

but my favorite watch, the one i wear the most, is the Rolex Yacht-Master II. i like the design of it the most, great weight and keeps time wonderfully.

another watch i wear, that i happened to come across purely by chance actually, is the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Open Home Time, style #107067. i like the semi-classic styling of it. i didnt even know Montblanc made watches until recently. they sell a fair amount of them as well. i have the catalog if anyone has any questions about certain watches i would be happy to tell you anything. the catalog also has watches of which they only made 8 time pieces. now those ones are nice. :thumbsup:

now, my dream watch, one i may never own as it is ~$4,00,000 US. it is the 2005 Vacheron Constantin Tour de I'lle. they only made 7 of them in 2005 and it is my favorite watch by far. (only a dream right now, sadly; maybe one day)

I wear my Tag-Heuer Monaco with the blue face to match the blue interior of my SL.

At other times I wear my Rolex Submariner.

As for a dream watch...too many to mention.

Like luigi4 my father had a passion in repairing watches, as a lad I spent many a hour sat with him while he mended and adjusted them with his single eye glass and small screwdrivers. When he retired from his job with J Lucas he was given a gold Smiths Astral. The first thing he did as with all his own watches was to swap the bracelet with an Excalibur Expanding one. When he died this was one of the things that became mine. I have never been a fan of expensive adornments I usually go for a quality no nonsense type watch that I can abuse a little. But when we go out dining etc I always wear Dads Astral, makes me feel like I'm taking him too :D

Right now I am wearing an Eternamatic 1000 that was my father's.
I also have a 1957 vintage Omega automatic and a nice and heavy Vostok Amphibian. My bum around watch is a 1999 LL Bean ;-)
My favorite though is a cheap watch (can't remember the name)with a beat up leather band held on with bent wire that my uncle wore all through WWII. I got it without a crystal, but when it was wound up it started to run! I had a replacement crystal put on to protect the hands. It does not get worn, but it gets wound once in a while.
I also have a vintage 1924 Waltham pocket watch my Grandfather won while he was a prize fighter. (yes they actually won prizes back then!)
I wind it daily and it has always run.

Y'all are too blue-blooded for my taste.

When I wore a watch, it was a nice Seiko with a stainless steel band with gold trim and a phosphorescent dial. The last time the battery died, I never had it replaced. That was four years ago.

I consider my iPhone my pocketwatch. All I need is a gold chain for it.

Same illness

Looks like we share lots of the same types of passions. I have about 30 watches and my favorite brand is Rado.
