Watches and BMW

So i know this is like a weird topic but what watches do all of you wear? are there any you match when you drive your car?

Also, some watch manufacturers develop watches for cars- like the IWC Ingenieur which was designed for the CLS 55 AMG, the Bentley Breitling..and so on.

Your thoughts? and why isnt there one for BMW!

My obsession with BMW's is nothing compared to watches. My wife sees it as quite a problem.

I have about 30 watches, most notably a Bell & Ross Pilots Sapphire Chrono, Breitling Chrono Colt, Panerai PAM 111, Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso, Omega Seamaster, Fortis Flieger (and a vintage Fortis Marinemaster I just got!), IWC Big Pilots, a ton of Seikos, a few Zenos a Soviet diver's watch from 1956, and a swatch.

I have a Tag Heuer watch that I've been wearing everyday for the past 7 years. I do take it off at night and when I take showers. I've only replaced the battery once and it still looks new.

Glad to know people are as enthusiastic about their watches as I am. I'm working with a franck muller, a f.p journe, 3 oris, an IWC Flieguhr, a Rolex GMT II, a Jaeger Master Geographic and a Longines Avigation..

Personally though, I think that stainless steel watches go great with with E90.

Have had a Tag for the last 10 years..

Still searching for a replacement. I'm actually owed it as a present from swmbo and in fairness she hasn't been holding out on me, I just can't find the right one!!

Haven't tried one on yet but I like the look of:

I think a Patek goes well with the wood grain dash but my aluminum dash looks better with my Breitling or Rolex Daytona.

Me too(visiting the Basel Fair every year)!

36000? Yes, that's the El Primero, 31 jewels movement with date at 4 o clock and KIF protection. The best automatic chronograph movement in the world, still(since 1969) imho.

IRL(like In Real Life), the Submariner is sturdy, yet classy and it has seen many oceans too

I would have thought that a German watch - Junghans - would be in keeping with a BMW. It also has a radio receiver linked to an atomic clock so it maintains perfect time. Smart technology to go with smart technology of the BMW!

I'm also thinking of getting another Tag Heuer watch.

I really like the classic Monaco model.

I love this watch, and would buy it if I had money.
