The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 110

I have nothing special but I realized today I have way too many watches. Or maybee not compared to some of you

Here we go:




From Left to Right:


Bullhead Cuff Watch - fun for the two summers I lived at the beach. Dont get too much use out of it now

Roots - Aluminum band - really light weight, but the flutes on the top dig into my arms when they are crossd

Swatch Irony - I have had this forever, and its completely made out of spun aluminum. The weight on it is amazing, and I love the lighter color. My favorite thing is to have people hold it as they are shockd at how light it is

Fossil Blue - just a cheap everyday metal watch

Adidas - I just bought this watch last week. I ahve been trying to find a rubber straped black/brushed larger dial watch and I found this for pretty cheap so it was perfect. Came with a leather band, but I had a rubber one put on, and I got the whole thing for under 100.

Kenneth Cole - cant really see this too well, but I got it as a Year of Service gift from previous employer. never wore it untill this year, and I like it but the face is too small

Swatch - this was my first attempt at a non-metal watch

Tag Heuer F1 - This was my bar mitzvah watch, so its at least 15 years old. This was the watch that everyone got for the BM, so I liked that mine was blue when I got it, but then at some point, I got a black band for it. Its been sitting in a drawer for about 8 years, but I decided to brush it off. This is still one of my alltime favorite watches and I was disapointed to find out they stopped making the rubber strap version of the watch. I think the movement is bad in it, sometimes I look down and its not moving any mroe, I just had a new battery put in, so we will see.

Once you get past the stage where the case shape defines the watch, you can appreciate the different dials (black, brown, white, carbon fiber, hobnail...), functions (PR, GMT...) and metals/finishes (PVD, titanium, steel). Not to mention destro cases as well.

(Gotta find ways to justify the addiction )


Perhaps I may be exhibiting some obsessive Panerai behavior.
There are a couple Destros behind the white dial but nothing with a carbon fiber dial.
You can see a brown dial Ti Base peeking out in the middle.
I used to be more obsessive with changing straps but for some reason a lot of them
ended up on plain black straps.
The 40mm belongs to my wife.


Master Ultra Thin, 1815 auf/ab, Reverso Gran Taille.


PAM64 aka La Bomba, Ultra Thin, Sea Dweller.


Zeniths from before they got ugly.

I'm not a watch guy, but this is spectacular. Pretty much all my favorites in one pic.

JLC's coming out with a new 38mm version of the Master Ultra Thin, BTW.

I would kill for that Lange Up / Down.

What is the case size - 37mm?

Yep, 36 or 37mm depending upon how you squint at the ruler.

I'd be afraid of snapping a 38mm Ultra Thin in half.

Can you post your address, the times you won't be at home, and your safe and alarm codes, if applicable? I'll leave the Paneri's - they are too big for my skinny wrists . . . .

those clickety-clack keyboards were awesome...had the perfect amount of resistance. a lot more than this super thin apple keyboard I'm using now

3 PAM divers! WOW!
post #1650 of 48312


Here's the full extent of my collection. Nothing too flashy but all good value for the money. Clockwise from the top we have Limes Pharo Automatic L.E., Oris TT1 diver, Chronomatic Explorer (eBay brand, the look is that of the Steve McQueen Rolex Explorer from the 70's) and finally the Sinn 203 Arktis on a kevlar strap.
