    Is there an official watch thread?

    How about this one Frag?

    I've been pleased with both of my Movados.

    I have one regular and one of their "Scion-esque" line called ESQ that I wear as an everyday watch.

    I've probably had them both around 4-5 years and I couldn't even really tell you if they tell time correctly. Seems like 90% of the world tells time on their cell phone. I certainly do. A watch to me is nothing more than a piece of jewelry.

    Audemars are great. Classy looking watches.

    But fuck Bron Bron and everybody that loves him.

    AP is baller money. One of the private watch dealers that I deal with wears one, the Royal Oak Offshore. When we talk watches, Rolex, Omega, and Breitling are nice watches, Audemars Piguet falls into the "high-end" watch.

    I just actually sold my Rolex Explorer II today, shipped it off after one a week with it. It wasn't keeping great time, running at around +15 seconds per day. A servicing would run about $600+ and take weeks and weeks, so I sold it for a minimal loss and I'm looking for a 114060 no-date Rolex Submariner. I'm signed up for the Rolex Get-Together in Philly for June, so hopefully I have something more than my TAG Heuer to show for it.

    Frag, bring back your suspenders and top hat or GTFO!

    Just kidding, but its all I can think about when I see your Leave it to Beaver looking profile pic. Lol

    Thanks for the heads up on AP. I will never buy a $30k watch. Even if I hit the powerball tomorrow. I think Rolex is overrated by most as well. It is the Bose of watches to me.

    Maybe I miss heard, but they said something about the watch LeBron had on at the presser and it being $250,000. Is that true?

    I bought a watch at the dollar store once. It was rather low quality and poor workmanship.
    Wal-Mart has much better watches.

    My cell phone not only tells time but it also has access to a crazy amount of pornography. Iā€™d like to see your watch do that.

    hah this topic.

    well here's the answer to which I bought. still have it, wore it about a week and hated it. it's so dim you can't read it outside.

    and now, with smart watches, i'll likely only wear a dress watch a few times a year. i don't exactly go clubbing :)

    I post i'm thinking about a suunto Core.

    here is what I have. filthy because it's sitting on a shelf in my workshop. I bought that exact watch.
