I gotta get into the holster business...
Swiss Army Officier
I just picked up a B&R Pilot GMT which I'm going to wear shooting. It's got the black PVD finish, and I figure it'll hold up to being hit occasionally with brass.
Now to get into knives... already got the gun bug and the watch bug and the flashlight bug.
My wife is going to kill me....
Breitling Super Ocean. Toughest â€œanythingâ€ I've ever owned. Iâ€™ve done everything but try and break it on purpose and it hardly has a scratch on it.
A two tone Tag Heuer 1000 series that I've had for 15 years.
Either a Black Luminox Series I
or what I'm currently wearing, a very nice Seiko Chronograph.
Pawn Shop Specials
I don't know how you guys feel about pawn shops but I've got a Bulova and a Tag Heuer that I picked up for next to nothing. Both turned out to be real. They may be stolen but I didn't do it. I noticed the watches while hunting for guns in every pawn shop in southern TX, you'd be amazed what turns up in them. And if you like to haggle it's heaven, everythings negotiable.
That's just my oppinion I could be wrong,
Pawn shops are great. The only problem is actually taking the time to look at all of them. If you stumble upon a deal, then great...but if you are looking for a particular deal and it takes months of hunting the pawn shops to finally find it, then you've really defeated the purpose.
Possible Mental Condition
For some reason I lack the ability to simply drive past a pawn shop. I get this feeling that something I desperately need is within and I just don't know what it is yet. I hate Wal-Mart for the same reason. I go for one thing and wonder around for 30 mins ending up with many more.
Ordinary everyday is a Timex Expedition. It's on its third band. I tend to kill watches that don't have flat crystals.
However, for special occasions I have a 1966 and a 1968 Accutron Spaceview
this is similar to one of mine but not a picture of mine.
I'm currently wearing one of these standard military issue Marathon "Red box" field watches that I bought on Ebay.. They're a nice watch and all, the only thing that I don't like is that it's just a tad.. um, small.. for a man!
Either a 44mm. Panerai submersible, a 44mm.Panerai GMT or a 40mm. Panerai dress with brushed stainless bracelet
Small wrists so I love the military watches that are a little undersized.
Aristo with an ETA 2824-2 movement and a sapphire crystal and titanium case.
How can you not like watches. My everyday watch is a Seiko Chronograph in black. My work watch is a goofy thing made by some nameless Japanese company for the Disney Channel. It works and the parents seem to get a kick out of it. But my favorite watch is my Jules Jurgensen pocket watch. It was the first thing the wife ever bought me.
I believe that all a man needs is an interesting watch,(in a pinch it works as a compass).A wedding ring, if so desired and a J frame revolver in a good pocket holster...
Now THAT should be on a t-shirt somewhere!
Casio G Shock
It tells me what time it is...that is really all that I ask
Sportcat,Use small print, please. Just in case a BG see's your interesting watch and you have to use your J frame to protect yourself from him mugging you after he reads the message on the front of your not so discreet tee shirt....
timex iron man
Everyday watch is a Rolex Sub.
I have a vintage Omega Seamaster. I think it is from the 40's or 50's. Any Omega historians in the house?
Dan, I'm not an expert ( ), but your watch appears to be a pretty common model.. A quick search on Ebay turned up this >>
