    I'm not an especially big fan of vintage watches. I love their aesthetics, but I prefer modern materials, finishes, technologies (i.e Spring Drive), etc. I still own one vintage timepiece. It's not exactly one of those classic "my father gave it to me and his father gave it to him" kind of...

    I don't know if it's bad luck or if my expectations for the watch is too high, but I've broken a fair amount of G-Shocks. My first one I bought at the MCX in boot camp. It died to a rifle butt stock getting out of a truck. My second got lost in the woods as I was putting my pack on after a...

    Have You ever embarrassed yourself at an AD or a watchmaker's? A while ago I needed my bracelet resized so I took it to a watchmaker. They needed me to try it on and I was so anxious I couldn't open the clasp. The stares didn't help. Lets hear You'r stories!

    I know there's probably a lot of posts like this, but I'm interested to hear of other stories of members and their first "special" watch. For some it may be a dime store timex with significant meaning for them, others it may be that first luxury watch they were able to purchase when they got...

    Like many of you, I believe a watch is a lot more than an anachronic time-telling contraption. A watch is a memory bank, a story, a symbol. When I was 15, my dad gave me my first "real" watch, a TAG Heuer 2000. Nineteen years later, it's been all over the world with me: into many rain forests...

    I got my first automatic about a year ago and just flipped it because I was ready for a new style. I got my money back (~$500), but now that it's gone it is very missed. Though not as fancy as a lot of watches on here, it was a great watch! I have memories of just staring in awe at it. It was up...

    Hey, all! I am a college freshman that just bought my first luxury watch - an Omega SMP. I had some music equipment I never used, so I sold it and put the money towards the watch. It is in the mail, and I should have it in about 5 days. I'm incredibly excited. So, I figured I would celebrate...

    I posted this on another thread. It got me thinking. (ouch!) What is your story behind each (or some) (or most) of your watches? Rules: One sentence (approximately), what is the story. I'll start... What do you mean 'just a watch'? That is heresy! No such thing. I'll not believe it...
