    I noticed there was a 'watch porn' thread in MC, but there wasn't one in here. I believe our styles differ quite a bit from the guys over there, so I was curious as to what kind of watches you guys incorporate into your look. or maybe you don't wear one at all. Please try and post pics if you do though!!

    I'll start it off. I had a Breitling Chrono Colt, but sold it last week to fund my wardrobe revamp : (

    I have an Omega Seamaster 120 and a Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500. I know most think Tags to be kind of douchey, but it's a limited edition and it looks cool.

    I liked the look of the J.Crew Timex watch, but couldn't justify the exorbiant amount they wanted for a TIMEX, much less a quartz. So I went with a Seiko 5 automatic SNK809 (military). It has been modded with custom hands and face (via Yobokies on watchuseek.com). It's on a stock nylon strap. [​IMG] The second is my Seiko SKX007, an automatic diver on a Maratec bond zulu strap. [​IMG] Excuse the date change Switching between the two watches on a day-to-day basis is pretty dramatic as the first one is light and small, and the second one is thick, and heavy.

    Most of the time: Black Seiko 5 military watch on black nylon stock band.

    Occasionally: a vintage (somewhere around 1940-1960) hand-winded Timex w/ roman numerals that I got cheap off e-bay and then replaced the leather strap w/ a newer nicer one.

    Omega SMP 2254.50. Sold the bracelet a couple years ago as I prefer straps. I alternate between brown leather, black leather or a variety of Zulu/Nato style straps.

    Ditto. I like that too. How much? I thought about getting the j. crew timex, but if this is a better deal... .

    Currently I wear a $30 military-style Timex I found in an Army uniform shop on Ft. Jackson in South Carolina.

    That's a nice clean watch. Sold it to buy the Seamaster 120. But I still think that is a great watch.

    slide13: That is a cool watch band. Where can I get something like that?

    What is a good place to get leather watch bands?

    Thanks. It's been a great watch for me. I've had Rolex and Panerai and a few others but I really think the SMP is a great watch for the money.

    The strap is a DiModell ralley strap that I got from www.mywatchmaker.net


    That Seiko 5 is awesome, I didn't even recognize it at first. The face and hands make it look like a Sinn.
