What Watches do you own!!!

Some nice watches on this thread but does anybody know any nice slimline ones, I have really scrawny wrists and the massive chronograph watches just look ridiculous.

Rolex submariner, has a 40mm case. The old model is better if you have slim wrists (i.e. the non ceramic model, which is discontinued but you can still buy preowned.) as the lugs on the new ceramic submariner are larger and make the watch look much bigger. Although I think it will still look fine on your wrist.

There are a lot of nice watches but I do think that they have started to get too large. For me anything over 40mm is way too big.

Nomos e.g the cheapest model the Tangente comes in a 33mm, 35mm and 38mm diameter model iirc.  I was going to buy myself one a few years ago when they were quite a bit cheaper.  I wish I had now.

@Scuzzle Have a look for Omega Seamaster 38mm which is Shown against my Rolex GMT Master 2, standard Omega Seamaster is 41 mm which is about the same size as my Rolex.

 

The 38mm Seamaster  was discontinued a number of years ago but you can pick up a nice one for anywhere between £1200-£2000 they come various designs.Make sure if you get one, to get a mechanical movement & check it has been serviced.

The Ceramic GMT is absolutely gorgeous. I would love the TT GMT Ceramic and often think of PX my Sub-C for one

@Numistacker I'm pretty careful with mine & wear both everyday Seamaster for work/gardening, GMT leisure. I hate it when people buy watches & never wear them,I have a friend who only has 6  watches but they are worth  over £100K, 5 he never wears & has them all on this saddle thing to keep the movements going LOL.

I've had this back for 2 months after going in a for service.  Came back looking brand new and is already seeing signs of wear but it doesn't bother me. When it gets battered again I'll send it in for another service.

In order to cultivate a distinctively eccentric look, I've gone over to carrying a pocket watch, instead of wearing a wrist watch. I have a nice quartz watch, similar to this one:

It looks like a gold watch, but there is no gold in it: those cunning people can make yellow steel these days.

I like it, do you take to wearing a waistcoat as well or does it go in the denim watch pocket.
