Thread: Who rocks a Rolex?

  1. #1

    Default Who rocks a Rolex?

    I'm sure we have a couple here who do....

    Im a huge watch guy, love them. With the advent of the cell phone, only the refined wear a time piece.

    Who are the refined and what do you have?

    If I can figure out how to post pictures I'll show mine, show yours!

    I thought I did, until someone explained to me that it was a knock off

    Knock it off. This board has enough problems without a dose of middle-age lechery.

    Did you pay Rolex prices?

    Because of the watch 'gray market' I would never buy a high priced watch online.

    I rock a Citizen. Paid $125 for it... That's the most I have ever spent on a watch.
    What's to explain? It's a bunch of people, most of whom you've never met, who are just as likely to be homicidal maniacs as they are to be normal everyday people, with whom you share the minutiae of your everyday life. It's totally normal, and everyone would understand.

    Citizen makes a great watch.

    I'm enjoying their Signature series.

    Eco-Drive is great as well.

    I rock an Armitron with a calculator on it. It's very old school and hip.

    no, I think I got it as a gift from my grandma. I can't remember, it was a long time ago.

    I don't always wear a watch, but when I do, I prefer Citizen Eco-Drive.

    Actually, my wrists are generally as naked as Soup's feet. But I picked up a citizen some years back in Tokyo that I quite liked.
    Awesomeness now has a name. Let me introduce myself.

    I have watch envy too but I've never paid more than $100 for one. About 4 years ago I came very close to spending ~$2K on a Tag but talked myself out of it.

    We had a CG thread on watches. You might get a kick out of it.

    You should do it.

    I think I've figured out how to post pics, I'll show my collection.

    It's weak but I like it.

    I wear a Festina. My wife bought it for me for my birthday about 10 years ago. Titanium bezel and band, I like how light it is. It has a white face with blue sub-dials.

    I don't wear it as much anymore. It isn't that I have replaced it my cell phone, it just that i get tired of having arm hair pinched and pulled.

    I don't like Rockwell. Part of it is a matter of taste, the other part is it seems they are trying very hard to be the "in" thing. I kind of think of them like Swatch was in the 80's, only way overpriced. But maybe I'm just getting old, as the Swatch reference would imply.

    I agree with your assessment of watch wearers. I don't care how many clocks we have on our phones or iPads or whatever. If you want to look the part, you have to wear a watch.

    I have a hard time respecting someone who pays more than $50 for a watch.

    After looking through the watch thread I clicked around a little. MW has a Linsanity thread where he has made 7 posts without a single reply from anybody else.

    I don't mean any disrespect to you personally. I do try to respect people with expensive watches...because that's what Jesus would do. I simply find it difficult. It's a deficiency on my part.

    50 is a low ceiling.

    You think watches are stupid, that's cool.
