    Almost all watch bands bother me, so I just use my cell phone to tell time.

    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.

    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.
