    Watches

    I thought this could be an interesting topic to talk about.

    Anyone in here like watches along the lines of Omega, Rolex, Breitling, Zenith, etc.?

    I have always really liked watches and really like the idea of getting one or two of these kinds of high end mechanical watches as I love the way they look, work, and how I can pass them down to my kids when I have them. One thing I would like to do is get one for myself here when I graduate but I wont have the money of course.


    What's everyone else's thoughts on this? I know that watches arent a very common thing for people to wear anymore, or atleast less wear them than before as everyone just uses their phone. I for one, have always worn a watch since I was about 15 and would love to own a Breitling Navitimer, Omega Planet Ocean, or something one day.
    CLub dreams:
    SRixon Z-STAR, Cleveland SL290/TL310, Titleist 910, Niblick, Mashies

    In my bag:
    Driver: NONE
    3w: BIG BERTha WArbird (mashie/ new fw)
    5w: BIg BErtha Warbird (mashies will replace this)
    Irons: Titleist CB Old model
    WEDges: CLeveland cg15 54*(need more)
    Putter: Seemore mFGP2(love this stick its like radar for the hole)

    I have a stainless Rolex Daytona right now but im keeping my eyes on the Zenith Defy El Primero Classic, the Extremes seem to, well extreme.
    Spoiler

    It going to be between that or another Rolex. Either the GMT-II or the Milgauss with the green Saphire crystal (if I can find it).

    They have a black band version that has less bling but the same look. That is the one I want.

    That would look good with a black band but the white band is pretty bad ass.

    I think watches are nice but I just can't justify spending the kind of money some of these cost.

    I just have a couple citizen watches, nothing special. I keep walking by the Rolex counters and looking at a special one, but can never get myself to purchase it. My wife even bought a Rolex I was looking at for my bday one year and I had her take it back. It's kind of weird as at one time I almost dropped $25k on a watch, but changed my mind at the last minute and ever since then I can't get myself to spend more than a couple hundred on a watch. Show me a depreciating sports car though and I will drop $80k like it's pocket change. My last purchase was a 2003 Viper supercharged putting out 900hp. There are a couple videos of it online going down a freeway somewhere in Mexico along side a Supra going north of 180mph.
