Wrist Watch Porn

Gotcha. I was reading about the no dial, no hands, no crown thing. Now that's freaky.
That is exactly it! From 2001 on, there were a handful of cosmetic and movement updates, but they always relied upon the original design criteria.

Here is a shot of the back. You wind the movement by turning the ring on the outside of this rear sapphire, and you see the spring compact and tighten (in this photo it is out of juice... the spring tightens towards the center of the watch as it is fully wound). It has a 7 day + power reserve. To set the time, you simply rotate the front bezel and adjust the "movement" to align as needed.

No nice watches here, but looking at some of what you guys have it makes me feel not so bad about some of the musical instruments I own... :cool:

Start a new thread! I would love to see. Wish I got into instruments as a kid!

A Steinway grand piano and a 30 piece DW drum set!?
 
If someone in this forum has a Patek, AP or Richard Mille, I'll shit my pants.
 
I think I paid $120 for this Bertucci field watch several years ago. I like the size and weight especially when I am hunting. It’s my daily wear, is accurate and has served me well.

Somewhat similar, this watch was worn by my father as he flew F6 Hellcats in WWII. Unfortunately it no longer works, but a treasure I admire daily. If only it could talk!

Uh oh this is a dangerous topic for me. I have a big watch problem. I've been into Rolexes for years now. Have bought and sold many and currently have about 6 including a Sky Dweller YG, Day Date YG, Daytona RG and a Ulysses Nardin Acqua Perpetual, but use this 43mm Sea Dweller as my daily.

I feel this is the best daily from Rolex. I'm a watchaholic too
 
or you can step it up even more than an AP...Patek maybe? I've been collecting for almost 30yrs and I've seen some insane things in this world.

Thank you. I am not yet a Patek guy, and don't know if I would ever own one. I sure admire them, but prefer smaller, niche brands instead. I bought my first AP in 2000, long before the "craze" that currently envelops the brand. They still make great watches, but they have changed much in the past 10 years. The "ambassadors" they partner with nowadays are not my cup of tea.

I hear ya. Patek is the unicorn for me. How about Chopard, Hublot or maybe one of those ridiculous Jacob & Co. custom jobs?
 
I get it. In the years I've been collecting I keep changing and evolving in my collection. I'm heavy into Patek now. I used to be heavy into AP, although I bought 2 new APs recently. APs current president has teamed up with a lot of interesting people. I can't wrap my head around the Marvel versions. They're so dumb.
 
Garmin Tactix, useful for the odd times I need a quick firing solution and dont have my Kestrel with me. I'm a huge nerd so I love all the data the Garmin captures (sleep, activity, stress, VO2 Max, altitude acclimation etc.). I have a Panerai automatic that I wore every day for nearly 5 years, but it stays at home on a watch winder except for special occasions now.
