As much as I like nice watches, bracelet watches just don't suit me at all.

I'm 25 but look a little younger so it just looks like i'm wearing my dad's watch!

Lovely B&R mate.

Watch finder? Is that like a case to store watches?

I wear mine nearly everyday but it's always in it's box at night. I kinda regret not keeping it for special ocassions because it does have a light mark on the metal.

Then again what's the point in having such a nice thing if you're not going to use it!

It says watch Winder Its to stop watches that rely on kinnetic energy from stopping after not being worn for a few days. Means you dont have to constantly re-set them like i do mine

I usually wear a G-Shock everyday

But since I was on holiday last week I now have a posh watch but............it's a knock off!

It's a Hublot Big Bang King maybe not to everyones taste but it's little different

Thats why mine dont go flat - there kept wound up, keeps things working as they should! And I love my gadgets I have a Seiko chrono for day to day.

Oooh, I do love a good watch, and some of these are beautiful

I bought myself a TW Steel CEO1030 last year and although I love it I do sometimes wish i'd have gone down the 'Posh' watch route, as I can't wear the TW a lot of the time due to the style (it's also too big to fit under my work shirt cuffs).

Can I post a "one day" one (well, I'm going to) .

I don't wear a watch currently and won't until I can confortably afford one of these. So, one day!:

http://www.omegawatches.com/gents/se...r/planet-ocean

I could buy one, buy it's a bunch of money from my house deposit gone... I tried one on and loved it, so it takes a lot of effort not to say "screw it", and cave.

A good friend of mine was given a georgous Aqua Terra for his 21st a few years back, and SWMBO's family all have rolex's. So I do feel like the odd one out. No one in my family's ever had anything more "fancy" than a Sekonda.
