Hmm...nobody seems to have the exact watch I have.

It's definately not a baller watch like the Rolex, Omega, Tag other people wear...but this is what I could justify spending:

Seiko Sportura Kinetic Chronograph SNL015



Unfortunately only quartz movement for the second hand, but the big red needle sweeps for the chrono. And it's fairly accurate and has sapphire crystal glass. Backing is glass too so you can see the pendulum.

The dial looks nice, but too many numbers for me and I'm not a fan of the band. How much is it?

What a coincidence. I have the same Movado watch (given to me as a gift), but I probably haven't worn it more than 15 times in the past 6-7 years.

My daily watch is a Skagen. Its nothing expensive, but it's comfortable and has the second hand I need (to check pulse rates at work).

My Cartier Tank. I wear it every day. My philosophy is this... if you can't afford to wear it everyday due to worry about scratching or use, then you shouldn't own an expensive watch. I love it. It goes with everything from a really nice 3-Piece Suit, to Jeans and a Polo Shirt. People who know watches recognize it, but the average person doesn't. It's understated bling!

I can't freaking believe I missed this thread until now. I'm a watch nut but I have only been looking at car stuff on this site!

I think the watch I own that matches my E90 the best my Breitling Avenger Seawolf on bracelet (black dial).

The other watches you will see me wearing in my car are a Panerai 112 on a variety of straps, a Omega Planet Ocean XL with orange bezel and markers, a Rolex Sea Dweller, or even a Casio Pathfinder.

I wear a Nautica SpettaColare..


My other watch is a Kenneth Cole. I want to get into watches but they are VERY expensive..my main goal is to get back into the housing market so the watches will have to wait..

I feel poor compared to the rest of you guys..
