    If it's a Glock you can use your Timex.

    HAHA you're right about the watches. The worst thing is that I haven't ever seen a decent looking watch in any of those pictures. It's never a cool old Ulysse Nardin or Vacheron. It's always some really gaudy new watch. Oh and don't forget the flashlights and pepper spray that find their way into the pictures too.

    Perhaps it's just because I've been up for going on 20 hours now but I'm confused, am I missing something here?:scrutiny:

    it doesnt bother me to see watches as long as it fits into the "theme" of the picture but when I see a tactical watch with a BBQ gun its a bit odd

    theres one pic of a guys "fitz" on here that has an old knife and watch etc in the pic and it just sets the tone for the firarm so nicely

    Just remember if you are taking pixs of your PPK or PPS the watch you wear must be an Omega.

    Don't forget to also frame your trophy wifie in the pixs wearing something from Bebe,

    Sounds to me like he may be responding to a posted pic of something like a "nightstand display" of a HD handgun but also includes the guy's Rolex ...

    ... which would strike me as funny/silly, also.

    Why not? People often like to show all the stuff they carry daily. That usually includes guns, knives, wallets, cell-phones and guess what? Watches... I don't see why it matters anyway...

    Can all of us tell time? Hard to tell with some of the posts I've seen.

    I personally can't take a good picture so I hardly ever post one anywhere,
    as to the OP Question I've Always just thought guys are trying to set up something that looks nice, or What they carry everyday.
    And the Rolex"s maybe a guy who spent a good part of his life working to get something,
    and he is proud of it, & wants to show it off the same why we like to show our guns ,

    I think it's just a picture consisting of the things that are important to people to carry everyday. I personally carry a 1901 17 Jewel Silver Elgin Pocket watch when I carry my 1918 Colt 1903 Hammerless. Hey guys can accessorize too.

    The rolex is only included in picture of 1911's and Hi-Powers.
    There may be an exception for chrome PPK's.

    Otherwisw leave the Rolex out

    That's hysterical...I appreciate fine craftsmanship as well as the next guy, but I can't help thinking the whole posing on the handgun with fine watches, knives, and other staged props is just a bit girly! :neener: Just my opinion.

    Watches are a tool just like guns and knives.
    Far be it for me to critcise anyones choices, if you can afford a rolex, go for it. But a timex gives me more money to spend on ammo :)

    At one time, in some groups, they all had S&W model 60s, a Randall knife, a Rolex watch and a star sapphire ring. Maybe the watch is all they kept.

    The Rolex is a diversion....just like gun ads that show bikini clad women, they don't want you to see the idiot mark on their 1911.

    I'll use my great grandfathers Hamilton Railroad watch. It works well even today and was acquired as part of a horse trade in 1911. Most gun trades are the basic equivalent of a horse trade, be sure to "check the TEETH". Oh; he was not a railroader, just a very successful horse trader.
