I can't speak for other people on here, but I personally think its a little bit cheesy to have like a BMW brand watch, or for me since I drive a Lexus to have a Lexus brand watch, etc.

My exception would be something like a Breitling Bentley or the Tag Ferrari, because they are special models, not watches branded by the car company.

Panerai makes watches for Ferrari now. They are beautiful but I wouldn't buy one unless I had a Ferrari. I agree with you though on the BMW watch. I wouldn't think anything about someone else wearing a BMW watch, but it's just not for me.

I prefer a very functional watch; simple, low-maintenance. Low key.

Movado. Has similar attraction to me as the BMW does -- sporty, professional, well engineered.

Watches suck. Why tell time on my wrist when it's already on my phone, car, computer, wall, et al.

To each his own, but why post "watches suck" in a thread full of posts by watch enthusiasts?

Nice choice on that Daytona! I'm interested in scoring the steel version with white face some day, but I will probably go for the Yachtmaster as me next watch.
