    Default Anyone keen on watches?

    Any AOS'ers into watches?

    I like a watch that ticks so I have a couple of quartz models and only one auto.

    I'd be interested to see what other members have, I'd imagine the same discerning taste that draws people to good hifi and music might also result in a decent watch or two.

    A Rolex Oyster given to me as a 21st birthday present by my parents. And a Bulova Accutron with a rectangular watch face and black leather strap, that I only wear with my DJ when the occasion arises.

    Speedmaster. Coveted one for ages and got one as a wedding present. Worn it every day since.

    A Longines, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Seiko and a Swatch. I think I even have a Casio some place.

    As you can see all high end quality.

    Had some decent watches, but stopped wearing one years ago.

    I don't believe in stupid expensive watches.

    Own two decent watches. Basic pulsar Kinetic, which I've had since 2008. The other watch, is a cheap and cheerful Ben Sherman. Purchased from Argos in 2006.

    Both still work fine.

    I might say they all still work and keep pretty good time in general although are in need of a service. The Elgin B.W. Raymond Pocket Watch movement cost $35 in 1888 plus case of choice. a fair amount and a very nice big watch. My favorite, and I bought it from a US collector many years ago who was needing money to do up his oldsmobile classic car
