A little mixed metal action on a sunny Saturday...



Edit....the compression leggings and sweat pants are due to recent surgery. Please excuse the fashion faux-pas.

money would sit in my IRA for another 20+ years.  lmao.  i know not to ask Suzy Orman.  I got a pretty nice bonus check last month... so I feel like the bold decision to pick this one up will make me only work harder again.  this would be the most expensive piece I own, and my first non-Rolex.

Wanted everyone's opinion on the Timex 1600. I originally wanted to purchase a vintage Omega or Longines, but I'm on a budget and am trying not to spend over $250. Any advice?

And it is 45 mm! Haha! My wrist is not particularly big. 41mm is the best size for me.

BG - Maybe your eyes need checked then your watches wouldn't need such big numbers :lol:

Buy the AP. You could get hit by a bus tomorrow. Although hopefully not while wearing the AP, as it might get scratched!

IRA's are overrated anyway. why have them when there are lottery tickets!!!

Betel, what the **** is that monster?!

 

Severyn, go with your first instincts and get the vintage Omega. It's the same price and much more interesting.  But then I would say that.  

 

Just play this conversation in your head: "Oh, that's a subtle and attractive watch, what is it?"

 

You can then say: "It's a Timex" or "It's a vintage Omega".  Which "you" do you like better?

That AP is fucking insane. I would agree with Stitchy

Well, I sat on my Safari impulse and -- yeah -- it went away. 

 

Still want a white-faced chrono on a leather strap though. Thinking one of these:

 

 

 

 

 

Expected to like the JLC more, but the date window bugs me. Legibility also goes to the Port in a landslide.

 

Thoughts? Neglected contenders in similar price range?
