    Besides the utilitarian aspect, it's just like cars, guns, women, etc... sometimes it's nice to have something with a little style. I enjoy wearing my Omega X-33, but I paid no where NEAR MSRP. I sure wouldn't have one if that's what I had to do. I'd love a Rolex Coca-Cola GMT II (there's that timezone thing again) because I think it looks really sharp and would meet my needs, but it's way too expensive and other, much more cheaper watches do the job (like my Casio G-Shock). Besides, that's money that can be spent on cars, guns, women, etc...

    My watch is part of my EDC. I feel naked without it. All my watch are (Analog - Timex Digital - Armitron that have seen better days and lived up to its name). Once I start diving again, Suunto will probably find its way into my watch collection. G-Shock watch will make its way this christmas, hopefully.



    Uw77, if price is a big deal, almost all LEO's where I live wear Casio G-Shocks. Granted they have been fairly proven to be abused beyond (Almost like a Glock if i do say so myself).
    BRUUUHHHH....Do you EVEN OPERATE?!?!

    Just be careful to consider that watches like Omega need regular tune-ups to the tune of ~$300 otherwise they will stop working, like the speedmaster I have sitting waiting for the funds to repair, something like $800. I have gone back to wearing my Casio Pathfinder PAG 80. Not stylish but takes a beating

    I'm into micro brands of dive watches, so status isn't quite what I'm after. I really just enjoy wearing them for myself, and I'm trying to separate my hand from my phone for at least one thing....

    Not to mention I'm working the beach 7 days a week 6 months of the year, even the new S5 isn't that water proof~

    Some of you gentlemen have expensive tastes.

    I need to take a picture, but I wear a Citizen Eco-Drive watch. Wife bought the stainless version, I paid for the upgrade to the Titanium upgrade and never regretted it. I even figured out at least the basic functions behind the tachymeter scale!

    I do admit that I have lust in my heart for the Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk Titanium Watch.

    Omega takes care of some folks depending on what they've bought and how they bought it. I don't pay for maintenance/parts, which is a nice bonus. That said, I don't wear it when I deploy/on the a boat, only when I'm home.

    Not quite as classy as a Rolex or Omega but my Eco drive has been 100% as well as my Bulova, both excellent watches for the money and the Bulova usually gets lots of nice compliments.

    recently bought and currently wearing this one Seiko chronograph it's affordable and looks great. though i realized i dont have much use for the stop watch feature, it just makes the watch look...pretty.

    How about this one? www.prestigetime.com/item/Omega/Speedmaster-Moonwatch-Professional-42mm/311.90.42.30.01.001%20Apollo%2011.html?utm_source= GBase&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=GBase&gclid=CIOK--P7_cACFVQV7AodoHoACg



    On a serious note my brother has a black EcoDrive and loves it. I think it is pretty awesome save for the fact that it doesn't illuminate and is fairly hard to read in low light. I'd love to get a fancy watch solar type watch with tritium inserts but I'm fairly poor so at the moment I'm rocking an OD green & black Timex Ironman Triathlon. This thing is a beast and under $35. It has quite a few features too for being so cheap.

    Here's a link for poor people like me

    That's all kinds of good looking right there. Thanks for posting. Makes me want a Seamaster just that much more.

    I saw your photo either on EDCU or IG, I can't remember. I'm not a watch guy but the simplicity of this caught my eye and I thought "That's a cool watch. It's nice and clean ... I could probably sport that one."

    Then I googled it.....
