That car belonged to a friend of a friend. They'd just picked it up from a service at the Ferrari centre.

Hey, at least the service was free!

Hopefully the service afterwards was free as well!

I know, Peugeot had a lot bigger problems with spontaneous combustion than any other I've heard about.

Hi Fin,

 

Yes, I think you misunderstood me.  I wasn't saying that they haven't happened recently, simply that its not merely something that has happened to Ferraris.  As mentioned earlier Porsche's 991GT3 was the most recent high end sports car to suffer spontaneous combustion issues.  Hopefully we are on the same page now.  :cheers:

Bracelets on men are a monstrosity in all their forms.  But I'm not claiming that this view represents a consensus!

 

Tifo - I suspect a watch like mine could be had cheaper than most G-Shocks.  Vintage Omega = value!  Though that's mostly sentimental in my case.

I did. My secret for funding the purchase was revealed in my last post - maruchan!! laugh.gif

Maruchan is super awesome. Especially the beef flavor.

Monstrosity on a bracelet staring you in the face right here!

No no.  That is not a bracelet on a man.  That is a bracelet on a perfectly-designed instrument.  And said instrument is on you.  :nodding:

Yep, I was asking for opinions.

I mostly lurk on this page but I am loving the car and watch combo shots....perhaps a new thread should be made "Douchebag Car Pic w/ Watch" or something. Really spicing things up and thumbs to all the guys with Porsche's. Magnificient car.

I'm not really much of a jewelry guy, aside from watches, so probably not the best person to ask!

I see some guys doing it, especially in the Northern states, but I really would not be comfortable wearing a bracelet. I also do not really have much of a desire to wear something else on my wrists! It does not really mesh with my aesthetic.

Some personal preferences: Cartier Juste un Clou or Love Bracelet/Cuff. Margiela ID bracelet. Random vintage Navajo sterling cuffs (thin / no stones / minimal engraving). Werkstatt Munchen various sterling silver options. I'm not sure I'd really wear any of these on the same wrist as a watch though.

I was taught that the only proper piece of jewelry a man should wear is a watch (and wedding ring if applicable). That has become my de facto excuse for buying pricey watches with my wife - since she is willing to spend a bit on her jewelry, I should be able to do the same with "mine" biggrin.gif

The only bracelet I really like is the Cartier Love bracelet.  Most others just don't do anything for me.  Also, I'm not a fan of guys wearing multiple bracelets.  IMHO if you're going to wear one, keep it simple.

Just wondering why the car/watch photos are considered DB pix, while pix of watches with clothing, shoes, accessories, drinks, fine food etc are considered non-DB pix?
