Do You Have A Favorite Watch?

Post by bodypeersur on Sat 26 Jun 2010, 12:23 pm

I can't say that I have one favorite watch. I would have to say that my Breitling Super Ocean Professional is holding the lead and that's because I've wanted one for a very long time and was fortunate enough to get a good gently loved piece from el presidente and Silje from DWC. Now that is my one high end watch.



Running a very close second would be my Invicta Skully. Now I always loved this watch, but the POS movement died. I asked my good friend Ron aka Barnbuilder if it would be possible to put a automatic movement in the watch. Lo and behold, I shipped it off to him and in a few weeks Old Skully was returned to me with a brand new Swiss 2824 automatic movement. To make things even better, my Bro Docrwm sent me the coolest skull buckle for Old Skully. Now to find the perfect silicone strap. Any ideas???



It's funny, Now I want to mention my Marathon JSAR!!! Another awesome watch and probably my largest at 46mm and freakin HEAVY! Currently my favorite quartz watch.



Ah forget it! Nope, I DON'T havea a favorite! LMAO!!! lol!

My favorite, partly because it's my newest.

I got some nice silicone straps from Strapped for Time:

They work awesome with my Seiko Divers....

Thanks Mark. I'll look into them. It has to be 24mm and it has to be PERFECT! The buckle Robert sent me needs the PERFECT STRAP. I'll know it when I see it.

Mark,

Yes, it certainly is - thank you. But I DO wear other watches. I have the Bernhardt GMT on as I type this and had the Sumo on last night.

I must admit that the Sinn has everything a Tool watch could need - tough finish that does not show a blemish, anti-magnetic, 200m WR, bidirectional bezel, solid performing 7750 chrono, and it keeps good time. Oh, and it wears like a dream too.
