I love watches! Thankfully my wife tolerates my obsession. The Kobold is my deployment watch. I prefer not to bang up some of my nicer watches. The JLC is one of my old WW2 pocket watches converted for pilots to use as wrist watches.

I'm planning on taking my christmas money and getting a Tissot. Still unsure which one. I currently wear a timex but I finally want to get something nice.

I really like this:

The JLC is lovely - some of the WW2 watches are really beautiful. Thanks for posting it. Do you ever actually wear it? If I had such a lovely timepiece, I'd make a point of wearing it on occasion; such watches are made to keep time, not gather dust in secure setting.

Lovely Tissot. I had a Tissot before I bought my current watch, and found it to be an excellent watch, lovely on the wrist with a clean, easily read, classical face, and an excellent time-keeper. I hope you manage to lay hands on it and enjoy wearing it.

I do wear it a lot when I'm home. I also have a converted Omega pocket watch from the same time period. My other favorites are my WWI trench watches. Have a lovely 1918 Rolex which I wear quite often as well.

Does anyone know of a simple wristband LED Fuelband-styled watch. I guess I could get the Fuelband to function solely as a watch but I don't want to have to charge it every other day.

2 Years old and still ticking on! Aside from the rather large scratch on the face..

Current everyday watch:

The watch I will treat myself with when the time is right:

My first quality watch: Nomos Tangente. One of the few watchmakers who build their own movements.

I love the clean looks, I love the color (or lack thereof) and I love the fact that it's only 39mm wide considering my small wrists. Plus, it's pretty cheap. Nixon Time Teller, for those who are wondering.

If I may ask.. besides name and craftsmanship.. what makes this worth 20k, least Rolex gives you some diamonds in this price bracket (although you don't need them to have a nice watch). I see none but maybe its other quality's that i'm being ignorant about

I have to say.. this thread has inspired me to start buying luxury watches. I think i'm in love with Tissot. I will be starting there. The only Rolex I would buy is the Milgauss but that's a couple years away from me

To me there is nothing that can make a watch worth $20K, unless I was a multimillionaire, then why not if I liked the product.

You know, all watches.. even watches in that cash bracket. its not all about the Diamonds, rose gold, platinum and all that. If I had to speak for everyone in this thread. It's about the craftsmanship.. and attention to close detail in the design of these watches.. its overall character.. that adds to our character. ' why there's a watch for anyone

It's a gentleman thing that most don't understand

I understand, and I love watches. I just can't justify $20k on a watch when that's about 30% of my yearly salary. I now have 7 watches ranging from $200 to $800 that have taken me over a decade to collect.

Not sure what was the point of your first question to me with that follow up response.
