    I don't have a pic, but I have a cool Armitron watch from Target. It's got dials for two time zones. I got it because while it's on my wrist, if you're looking at it upside down, it looks like a smiley face! Kind of funny. Really makes people look. My other cool watch is a Fossil "Blue." But the battery died and it will cost me another $20 to take it to a special "fossil" battery place to replace it. Anyone interested in buying it? When I finally get to 100 posts, I'll put it up in the marketplace. Fun thread.

    This my Nixon "Ticket" yes it is a nixon who is known for watchs and stuff that are aimed at skaters and surfers and such but they also have an awsome line of very nice watches including a kinetic energy watch (just like a rolex!) that has no batteries and uses swiss movements and the motion of your arm moving to keep it running...but this watch of mine is the "Ticket" and it has full swiss movements and is beautiful it runs about $200 [​IMG]

    I can post a pic later, but for now you can see them at www.philipstein.com

    They're nice watches.

    I had a couple of Fossils, and I think my Dad took possesion of them when I got a Philip Stein.

    too funny!!!

    I don't wear watches, I can't stand things on my wrist. I've been through several Swatches, couple Timexes, my dad's old Rolex...but with my cell phone in pocket I check the time that way.

    ...now if I could just hack these handcuffs off...

    It was about $1700, expensive, but in the there are much more expensive watches out there.

    Never buy a rolex. people will just think its fake :).

    This is my watch :p

    I actually stopped wearing watches when I lost my last one. It was just some cheap POS digital watch, but I realized that I almost never used it. The phone had taken over the job.

    Edit: I like macOSX-tastic and EJBasile watches. Nice :)

    I have a gold Omega that was my great grandfather's.
    It was given to him on his retirement and is engraved on the back.

    I agree! I can't stand having WATCHES on my wrist.. bracelets I'm OK with, for some reason, but a watch? YArrhhh... Just.. no.

    Maybe it's a weird violinist/violist thing.. Oh well. :)

    I used to have a Rolex Oyster Perprtual bi-metal bracelet, my dad left it to me, but it just looked like a fake on me....

    What can I say, I look cheap.

    So I sold it and got a Rado Ceramica multi-function, very unusual, impossible to hurt.

    I have two TAG Heuers... a Kirium which I wear daily (for 6.5 years now) and an SEL which I've had just as long but almost never wear (so it's in perfect condition).

    I have a Snoopy watch that I found in my stepmother's move boxes. She totally forgot all about it. She also let me keep it :D

    Post a pic later when I check out a digital camera from the Uni.

    Not real expensive Titanium Fossil ($150) but it is the nicest watch I own. I am kinda like iGary.. I totally trash watches. I have had to have the crystal replaced on this one twice already.

    Here's some photos...

    My Philip Stein is a combo of the two. The top dial has four numbers printed on it, but the background of my dial is black.

    I have the navy blue Matte Leather strap on my watch. I also have the dark blue rubber strap, but it's all messed up.

    The Philip Stein is better known as 'The Oprah Watch'. Their website is very seductive - www.philipstein.com

    I found a Raymon Weils watch on the beach once. I sold it for $1000, which helped pay for my Powermac.
