  1. Have you ever met a "Watch Guy" who was most certainly not a "Watch Guy"?

    Public Forum
    Hello! I was recently making chit chat at a holiday party, when I noticed someone wearing a Tissot. Casually enough, I said, "I've checked out a couple Tissots, but I've never owned one. How do you like yours?" Without hesitation, he offered back, "Ah, so you're a 'Watch Guy' too, eh? I love...
  2. You might not be a WIS if...

    Public Forum
    My favorite long-running thread on WUS is "you might be a wis." I thought it might be fun to ask the opposite: You might not be a WIS if... You buy a watch winder for your quartz watch. You travel to Switzerland to climb mountains and eat chocolate. You have $50,000 to spend and blow it on...
  3. Are you a watch aficionado?

    Public Forum
    In terms of watch knowledge, how would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 - 5? Wow I totally forgot, 1 - 5, 5 max aficionado, and 1 being a newbie.
  4. FS: Seiko Marine Master MM300 SBDX001

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    FS: Seiko Marine Master MM300 SBDX001 Does this watch really need much of an introduction? I s’pose I’d better, just in case you’ve been living in a cave… and not the spelunking type! This is Seiko’s answer to the Swiss manufacturer’s dive watches. The Rolex Submariner, the Omega Planet Ocean...
  5. I need some WIS help!

    Affordable watches
    SO.... I've loved this watch for a long time now. The Emporio Armani AR2448, but I'm having trouble believing it's worth the price. I don't know if it will match the quality of my Seikos for almost the same price. Amazon.com: Emporio Armani Men's AR2448 Classic Blue Dial Chronograph Watch...
  6. A Brief History of Mollari 2261 - from being a N00b to having a Strategy

    Public Forum
    My first post revealed my starting collection, including some of the wrong turns taken between then and now. That, and the support of WUS, helped hone my tastes and enabled me to make wiser watch purchases. But all along I was missing a strategy, beyond "looks nice, cool movement, and I can...
  7. Funny Comments or Questions from your GF/wife/SO About Watches

    Public Forum
    A place for us to post our comical interactions with the ladies or significant others in our life about our watches. Last night my girlfriend was complimenting my SKX007 that I had just put on a Super Oyster II from StrapCode (awesome bracelet!). She asked if she could turn the dive bezel to...

  10. WIS vs. WUS... what's the difference?

    Public Forum
    Hi WatchUSeek members, I feel a bit silly asking this, but I am a bit confused whether it is WIS or WUS (or both?) when referring to WatchUSeek. I am under the impression that WUS is the acronym for the site, but I see that people also say WIS. Or, does WIS mean something else altogether? I...
  11. Breitling reputation: WIS vs. Non-WIS

    Public Forum
    What is Breitling's reputation in WIS circles and what is the reputation in Non-WIS circles? I am NOT talking about whether they are worth the asking price, so let's not get into that. I'm talking about two things. First the initial question of what is their reputation, what do people say...

  13. How Many Friends Have You Converted to WISdom?

    Public Forum
    This past Christmas, one of my friends who I have been talking shop with got a pristine, white dialed Tissot PRC-200. At first I thought that he had gotten the black dial version, but he actually got the same one I had when I first showed him my watch. I suppose imitation is the most sincere...

    Casio G-Shock
    ...or do they KNOW you're weird? They know I am. Mechanical watch collectors are less strange than us.
