The Watch thread

130 posts in this topic

Personally there are two forms of jewellery I find acceptable for a man. A wedding ring and watch (for anyone above 25). What watches do you rate, what do you have and what do you one day want to have?

Agreed on Breitling. Tags are shite since they stopped being Heuer and became tag Heuer. Rolex is good if you go daytona or above but I am a ways away from getting a £10k watch. 

 

Personally I have an omega planet ocean skyfall limited edition. Looking to get a longines heritage 1935 sometime soon.

Will be looking to get a audemars piguet royal Oak one day also. But that is firmly on the future wish list. 

 

Hublot is a total crock of shit. When I see a digital watch going for £25k it begs belief. Too much rapper influence on their current success.

my favourite watch, not the offshore either

 

i think a big watch should be quite far down the list for someone with nothing in their name tho

Omega , rolex & co are out of my budget and most of the ones I have seen are Meh 

I like some invicta watches as well.

Nah not the offshore. Too clunky. I want the one without complications other than the date function. 

 

Real talk on the priorities. I only got my omega recently having got married, bought a house and qualifying as an ACA. Was kind of a milestone gift to myself for the hard work. Plus literally said fuck it after spending x amount on a wedding and said this is for me.

If I were to get a dress watch it out be a Patek calatrava or a cartier tank.

 

That being said the longines 1935 is dressy and reasonably priced which will probably be the next watch purchase.

Nautilus is never 40k unless you went white gold or something.

The royal Oak can be had for around £10k-14k. Which is to be honest. Some footballer p but not beyond the realms when you're a bit older with a sound job etc... But yeah I am a,long long way away from having that.

Agreed on the maintenance costs.

To be honest I get the point.

But.. Do you aspire to a nice car?

Do you wear true religion, gucci etc...

Those would also be status symbols. Just in a different guise.

yeah but a nice car is functional and a pleasure to drive

 

a nice watch is simply nice to look at and take compliments over

 

 

by choice i dont wear a watch because i dont need to, who does?

 

and i choose style over brands lol at true religion who the fuck you think i am uncle 2chains?

So I used to wear jewellry, then I got older and realised that it wasn't for me, so I took out my earrings got rid of my chain and chopz and all that jazz and just went native for a while.

 

Then about 3 months ago I decided "I want to wear some jewellry" so I purchased a watch from some shoddy camden joint, then I got a watch from Groupon and now I love wearing it, watches complete my outfit and I rarely go out without one on now. Love em, would love some good recommendations.

 

This is the fakey that i'm wearing now until I can get a real one, I like this style of watch is there anything reasonable that replicates it?

I don't understand why you wouldn't just get a watch that you like that's affordable or buy one second hand they're not even that expensive

I was just trying it out, I never understood why someone would spend that much money on a watch, but now, I understand. I don't actually rock this very often and I let everyone who admires it know how fake it is, but really, I don't care.
