Hmm I am a watch addict. Currently I wear an

Omega Seamaster Professional 300ft/1000ft blue face steel band. I bought it used from a fellow LF'er and never had a problem since. I brought it to the Box with me and wear it daily. Hands glow bright as hell at night.

For the gym, I wear the Suunto Vector, holds up well in the gym.

Im looking for a Paneri historical now if anyone know a good place to find one.

Dude,

Where did you get the box?

I only have one serious watch, gotta get my mitts on a digital camera to share it... stupid technology taking a dump on me...

Wrist check time again? I've been buying and selling a bunch of vintage stuff, mostly Seiko divers, but here are a couple of my keepers.

I'm still wearing this 6309 almost constantly, but it's been recently upgraded with a serviced NOS movement, hacking kit, new crystal and fresh gaskets all around.



I grabbed this vintage 300m "Tuna" last year from the original owner, and it's still looking pretty good for almost 30 years old.

Here is my baby. Tag Heuer Aquaracer. Bought in Vegas a couple of years ago with Valkyrie. Absolutely great watch. I have had zero problems with it. It keeps great time and is tough as hell. It is getting a little nicked up as I wear it every day. It has 20 or so jumps and has been to Iraq once.

My Seiko Diver's Automatic loses about 10 minutes a week. I've had it since Dive School (98) and worn it through damn near every dive since. I have a G-shock, that works just fine, but I just broke the band in a fight at work.

My pride is my Omega Seamaster. I used my first tax return as a street cop to buy it, and got a good deal ($1300).

I picked up a Citizen Ti Eco-Drive at my mother-in-laws pawn shop and use that as my off-duty watch (it dosen't tell the date)

If you guys are looking for a good deal on a watch, PM me the type and I'll keep my eye out at the pawn shop.

There is an older, yellow faced Doxia, several Seikos, and a Movado or two there and she can't move watches fast enough!!

Mods, if I over stepped, delete and let me know.

I need to upload pics of my severly abused Marathon TSAR. I wish more quality watches were made with tritium illum. I don't think I'll ever go to a non tritium illum watch unless its purely for dress. My watch's bezel has almost all the black paint grinded off from various scuffles and hard use, the white paint on the 60 second market is knocked out from speed wrenching to get an ACFT up for a mission, edges are dinged from working the 240...

But I don't care, and thats the best part. Its not pretty, not anymore, but I know that the crystal will still be there after a hard smack and I don't have to check, I know that I can see what time it is at a glance without any indigo light or weak ass luminescent paint that won't last the entire night.

The Zulu band I have smells like death and has white buildup from showering in all the creases. There is dead skin that has filled the checkering on the crown where it contacts the back of my hand.

I fuckin' love this watch, and I'll probaby get another strictly for dress...or a CSAR. I think the CSAR is sexy as hell Big Grin

Is that the 22mm band, bro? I broke my 2nd polymer strap for my Seiko. I am considering a Maratac silicon or a Zulu.

I have one of those old Seiko Automatic watches, I'll have to dig it out. Was my uncle's, it's a great watch, just needs a new band. I'm waiting on my Suunto X6 to get back from being fixed.

Yes you do. Nah, man, the 19 isn't new, I just only had the 17 out when you were over. I got the 19 and the 17 on the same day. Truth to tell, however, I like the 19 WAY more.

Yep, Duke, it's the 22mm band.

Here is a pic of my 3 Pawn Shop Queens and my Luminox. Some how, I cracked the crystal on the Luminox in Baghdad and the band gave up while in A'stan.


The Sunnto Vector is my hunting/hiking watch. The altimeter isn't that accurate though. The Citizen Ti EcoDrive is my off duty watch and gets day to day wear. The G-shock is my Kage Kikker watch since I can pretty much boil it to get it clean. The Luminox used to be my daily wear watch until the strap gave up. It seemed to just rot away. Any body else have that issue? It's a series I.

Damn, those are some nice looking watches in this thread... now I want a new one.

To tell the truth, the watch I wear most often is a $20 walmart special. My 6yr daughter made Mom take the $$ from her piggy bank and take her down to Walmart and she picked out a watch on her own and paid for it herself as a b-day present for me....

Nothing wrong with Trasers, DOL. Tough, accurate, glow like a sumbitch tritium and they don't say NAVY SEALS on the dial.

I don't have much in the way of expensive watches, but here's my significant ones:

Left ta right: Seiko 5 I traded a box of .357 Hydra Shocks and a couple speed loaders for. That was a good deal, since I hadn't owned a .357 in years. Next is The Baller Ass Watch that I still owe stuff in trade to DZ for, with it's new Seiko bracelet. Its beefy. The cool one is a 1970 Automatic, the first year they did an auto, I'm told. The bracelet on that one is cool as hell. Used to be my dad's, but didn't work when I got it. A watch maker friend of mine put it back into working order. The last one was pretty rough when I got it. Its a 1890-1900 era Waltham pocket watch. When I got it, it had a dent in the back of the case, and no crystal. The same watchmaker friend removed the dent and replaced the crystal with an NOS one, as well as giving it a thorough cleaning. Runs like a top, but I don't carry it much. I'm too afraid of losing it!

Those of us who know must save those that don't from those that think they do.

My daily wear for the last several months is a Seiko I got from a guy here on the board...great watch, looks good--fucker looses about 7 miutes a week.

So in keeping with not so great time keepers, I am on the hunt for a Rolex GMT Master/II...its that or a Springfield pro--either way, I am bound for divorce court over it LOL

 

 

 

Here's my Seiko collection. All of the pawn shop watches. 2d from the right is my $25 Seiko, getting a new bracelet for it cost more than the watch did!

Here's one for Harper. This was my dads, who gave it to me a couple years ago. He bought in new in 1962 and traveled the world with it.
IWW did the mechanical tune-up on it before I put it in the safe.


Here's my current rotation.
On the left is a Casio Pathfinder 1200-3V. Amazing watch regardless of it's size. Next is a Luminox 3100 on a NATO band from Windy City Watches, with a custom, dial decal I had made. I have extra's, PM if interested. Next is an Alpha Time (Chinese) copy/hommage of the Omega Planet Ocean. Pretty decent watch that keeps good time. The lume sucks, but it has a nice case and bracelet, it's an auto. Then we have a Ray special from eBay. Nice case, no lume, sits on a Seiko bracelet I already had. Nice beater.
Smith and Wesson trit tubes in a titanium case and band. Given to me by a buddy. Last is a Seiko 6309-7049 rescued from a pawnshop a few years ago. This one too, went to IWW for a relume. Sits on a one piece Zulu.

ClosetCaseNerd-

Is that how you normally wear the strap? It is reversed from how I normally do it i.e. buckle at the 12 o'clock side. Confused

I wear mine like ClosetCase Nerd too. It puts the buckle on the side of my wrist where I am less likely to notice it. On the bottom of my wrist, it would prevent me from gripping some things (or just be annoying when I work at a desk/laptop). On the 12 o'clock position, the buckle would be more likely to get hit or catch on things.
Yep I wear it as shown.

With the buckles on the outside of my wrist (reversed from whats shown) I'll end up leaning against it anytime I'm leaning on that forearm. Yeouch.

My folks got me a Tag Formula 1 for HS graduation. I wore it daily till turning 40 last month when my wife surprised me with an Aquaracer. I know she overspent but my old one has been bulletproof. I mean 20 some odd years of college, policing, shooting, camping, boating... I have not been easy on the watch (or the body that was attached to it) to put it mildly. The battery in it started running out right after I got my new one. What is amazing is that I bet I have not put 3 batteries in that watch the entire time I've had it.

If the Aquaracer is as good I will take it to the grave. It is nice, solid and heavy. Just a good damned stainless watch.
