Very welcome. I may pick one up myself as a "beater" watch for vacations, camping, etc. All my low end watches have leather bands so they're not waterproof.

Go for the Omega. It is a stunning watch. I have an Omega Deville - a classy, understated, elegant timeless watch. I bought it for myself as a belated Christmas present in January 2010, having spent at least the previous three years drooling over it. I haven't regretted it for one minute, and wear it daily, with a nice, understated dark leather strap.

Agree completely.

They are both excellent watch companies however and I've owned Tag in the past. The choice is really up to your personal preference.
My thoughts exactly.

Ah, twietee, as so often we're in agreement. Precisely. It is the enduring classy timelessness of the Omega that makes it so attractive.

Yes, a solid, beautiful piece of elegantly stitched leather. I agree.

And, again, I'd say you made the right choice.

You'll enjoy it - especially if you have been anticipating, or planning to treat yourself to one for a long time.

What I wear everyday. It's accurate and it's a brand most people don't know about.

Here is my current collection. All Nixon watches. The Sentry, The Ride, The Banks and The Capital Automatic. I just sold my 51-30 and Player for the Capital. I'm loving having a mechanical watch!

They are a fantastic brand and have made some really beautiful watches. I haven't seen many for sale though, save in the very high end jewellery stores.

I think it's a personal decision. Like clothing or jewelery. Buy it if you want/like/need it.

Is that a $10k watch?

20k... That's why it merits a lengthy consideration period.

I am trying to pay off the $2k on my credit card. Small steps for me.

If you have $20k to spend on a time piece that's great. I hope to be in that situation some day (I don't see it on the horizon), but I don't think it's something we can help with. It's really a personal preference thing.

iMessage tends to work well for that. It works the same as texting an image.

What do you guys think of these? I'm 21 in case that matters. I've never seen or heard of Issey Miyake before an hour ago.

I'd never spend more than $100 on a watch, but then again I don't wear them. I just pull out my iPhone 4S.
