Sorry guys to revive this quite old thread, but since I am huge into watches I just had to give my two cents here :)

I have been collecting watches for years and own a few dozen. Breitling, Rolex, Cartier... you name it. Of course I like to wear them as well since I think that men are so restricted in wearing accessoires that there are hardly any options except for watches.

When I buy them online, I don't refer to ebay though but rather go to a specialised shop named chrono24. Great selection there, many different manufactureres and you can also purchase used watches there. It is highly recommended!

Love my Rolflex. What a bargain, too!

Hehe, I don't know whether the word bargain is the best description... ;)

I was lucky enough to have inherited my granddad's collection though and just couldn't part with it. Instead I have developed an interest in watches myself and have added a few pieces to the already existing ones...

Don't ever buy a Victorinox ... ten years of repair/replacements until they finally gave up on it ... and I'm without that watch. Surely, the technology exists somewhere in Switzerland to make a watch that is "waterproof". I didn't wear it underwater at all ... not even under dish water. It just leaked and broke, over and over, while being worn on my wrist. I even removed it for any sort of vigorous activity. It was a wear-to-the-office watch and it was NEVER abused. I feel seriously ripped off, actually.

I wish that I could "CC" this rant to someone at Swiss army but I'm quite sure that they couldn't give a rat's ass.

I love watches....I have more watches than jewelry. I shop online because I am able to do it on my own time, find exactly what I want, and get the best discount. I shop at [url]WatchesandMore[/url]
Bad Idea. I was looking for a watch myself some time ago as I was sick of having to reach into my pocket and pull out my phone, plus I wanted to look like an anachronism from the 1900's.

I heard about watchesandmore from some spammer on a forum and it looked like a reasonable site with decent prices.

I bought their ROLOX brand designer watch because it sounded familiar and it reminded me of something James bond would wear.

After a few days my arm started feeling a bit itchy but I didn't think much of it since I've never really worn a watch since I am less than 90 years old.

About two weeks later the itch had turned into a rash and I thought it was time to take my watch off.

At this point it was too late.

and now I am left with this:

Myself, I haven't worn a wristwatch in 20 years. I just don't care for them. If I need the time it seems I always have some sort of device handy that has the time so I really don't need a wristwatch and I'm not vain enough to wear one as jewelry.

However, when I am on vacation or on a trip I typically bring along my grandfather's Waltham pocket watch (ca 1916) and it does a yeoman's job of keeping time!

I used to wear one all the time, but then a few years ago, a new rule came down at work that we absolutely aren't allowed to wear watches anywhere. So I eventually broke the habit, now I don't wear one at all anymore.
