How many watches do you own? - Page 3

post #31 of 149
Almost all watch bands bother me, so I just use my cell phone to tell time.

Dunhill is not a watchmaker so...

What do you think of the TAG Heuer Carrera for a watch in the 1000$ range?

I detest TAG Heuer, although the Classics collection, of which the Carrera is a member, is probably the least objectionable.  The non-chronograph Carrera just strikes me as blah, however.  What kind of watch are you looking for?  Dress, sport, or something in between?

I'm leaning more towards a dress watch. Certainly not a sports watch.

For your price range and taste, I like Limes.

Dunhill was originally a leather company specialising in harnesses and driving accessories and car parts. But you seem to like Dunhill ties and suits just fine (none of which are made "in house" I understand. Why the aversion to Dunhill watches then? The designs are certainly consistent with the overall Dunhill aesthetic.

I don't like neither this model nor this brand in general

I have no tie or suits from Dunhill so i have no idea what they worth. If Dunhill's ties were made by a good tiemaker but sold at a cheaper pirce than this tiemaker i would say they are good ties to buy. If Dunhill's watches were made by a good watchmaker in the same range of price (Baume&Mercier, Cartier...) but sold at a lower price, I would say they are good to buy. I don't know who makes their watches but i know they are rather ugly and otherpriced and most of them are quartz.

Just to make the normal people feel better: * Maurice Lacroix, gold/steel (quartz) * Swatch (Iron?) in stainless * Ken Cole tank watch that looks cool * Rolex fake w/mechanical movement from Thailand Wear the Swatch on most days but use the Ken Cole or the Lacroix when dressed up. B

Citizen solar watch that keeps on going no matter how much of a beating it gets. Casio sport watch for running Hamilton 1950s Omega 1960s This watch needs a case. In 1980 when gold was around $600 per ounce (I think..) I sold the watches 18k case in an emergency while traveling in India. The watch was $300 new and I got around $600 for the back. Now I am looking to find the case.
