    After seeing some nice watch pics in other threads, I thought this forum deserved its very own watch p0rn thread.

    So here is a home to post your pictures of your watches (I think it's more interesting if we stick to our own watches rather than reposting stock photos or other people's scans)

    It is very difficult to concentrate on the Panerai with that fantastic-looking espresso staring me in the face. [​IMG] What I'm wearing today... Wittnauer / Longines from the 50's

    I hear you - sipping an espresso lungo outside on a sunny day is one of those simple pleasures... This was in Verona last year

    Nice watch btw - is it a bumper automatic?

    Thanks; it is a rotorwind movement by Longines.

    I'm going back to daydreaming about a sunny patio and crema-laden espresso...

    That's a fantastic looking watch, Hoff. I'd like to own a 1950s or 60s Longines in gold.
    Here's my modest contribution for now.
