El Presidente

Let's talk about watches...

Recommended Posts

One of my other loves is Swiss watches. I happen to wear and retail ORIS watches www.friendsoforis.com but that is beside the point.

As discering cigar chomping cablleros.....what is on your wrist?

I like cool watches too! I used to wear a Rolex Explorer II, but it was too heavy and bulky (like handcuffs) and I didn't like that selfwinding feature because the watch would stop running if you don't either wear it or shake it every couple of days. It also wasn't very accurate.

I recently got a two-tone Breitling Aerospace and I really like it.

A TAG Heuer 2000 Series is my everyday watch.

I've also got a TAG Heuer Link Chronograph & a Heuer Monaco for dressing up.

One of my many weaknesses are good timepieces. On my last holiday, ended up in Barbados where there were some good selections available. I bought myself a nice Longines watch, only to find out my (champion) uncle who had left for home in Vancouver had bought me a Tissot touch screen watch!:ok:

Suffice to say if if I was on Rob or Ken's earning bracket I might be tempted to buy something else (Piaget was another nice option) but pretty happy with the ones I've got.

Cheap piece of crap Timex Expedition. With all the money I have spent on cigars that's the best I could do.;-)

If I had a nice watch I'd lose the thing.

Citizen eco-drive 180. Powered by light, no batteries, no winding, no shaking.

No muss, no fuss. Water resistant to 200 meters, and will run 180 days on a full charge. I've had it for years, and never had a problem.

From the FOH Rules Page: “Shilling” i.e. shameless promotion is a one way ticket to oblivion.

Do as I say, not as I do???!!!

I have an Oris... you just started selling them when I bought and didn't have the one I wanted. I also have a bunch of cheap others. BTW, my Oris doesn't keep the best time... loses more than a QPR watch should.

I also had a Sea Dweller a long time ago, very cool watch. I remember it had this little helium escape valve on the side of the case, and was really thick and bulky. The jeweler told me this model didn't come with a magnifier over the date because it was made to go so deep under water that it would compromise the integrity of the crystal.

Love watches also... Currently daily wear is a IWC Chrono...sometimes a Rolex Air King. For special days a Vacheron Constantin Malte Regulator Dual Time....

Yeah......I ain't to keen on sheep-like habits either.

Maybe that's why I don't use Bill Gate's sorry products.
