Then leave it in a Tupperware with dessicant with the crown pulled out for a week or so and sell it on/trade it in and get into something else.

The only priceless watch in my collection. My Mom told me if I graduated college w a 4.0 GPA she would buy me whatever watch I wanted for graduation. It proved to be good motivation and my Dad almost

Mechaquartz! Thanks - the bracelet was the tough part (most came with black leather strap, which is also very attractive).

I have the leather strap for my Auto Fliegler with deployment strap and don't like it much.  The bracelet on both Fliegler's are the way to go.

Latest addition to the Watch collection; Oris Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date, 80th Anniversary Edition.  Just came in today! Love the green dial. First shots are indoor, last wrist shot is outdoors where it softens the green color.  Will alternate with my Panerai Luminor Marina as the daily watch.

Well, been contributing to this thread for six years and about to add my 7th member of my watch collection. Tomorrow is my 60th birthday and here is the first one of this kind for me. Learned how to pronounce it too: “Shjay Shjay Le CoLTre”. 🙂

Elegant, timeless and bordering on funky. Not old fashioned at all.

Cheers fellow watch guys and love this show!

Congrat's on your 60th.  Very fancy!

I have never been a big watch guy,but I can appreciate some of the nicer ones. My friend gave me an Invicta some years back and I've worn it twice. Not my style,too big and clunky.

Very few manufacturers pull off a cigar inspired watch well. 

This one is another fail. My opinion :D

Did you buy your dream Panerai yet? We're not getting any younger mate!

I just think all these massive glossy watches are crude. Aesthetics is about balance, beauty, interest and (for functional objects) a satisfying solution to the challenge of their purpose.
