Default I want to know the time...not do math!

While looking at a post by onesweetride I saw an ad for watches.

These are some weird arse watches and if you need to tell the time quickly, or your really bad at math - these suck!

Yeah, but you get to look all cool and futuristic-like.

My watch is 45 years old and still ticking along great. I'll pass on the LEDs!

I am a watch collector/freak. Now you gave me something else to add to a long list of things that Mrs V sayz I don't need. I don't particularly like digital either, but some of these got my interest. My newest watch is a Steinhausen with a see through back. She'* still ticked about the price of that one.

That'* an awesome looking timepiece. I've got a bit of a watch collection here as well. I have my Great Grandfather gold pocket watch that he carried with him in WWI as my most favorite.

Kinda liking my 30 year anniversary Seiko I got from the company as well. That'* more of a going out and piping watch.

My everyday bruiser is a Casio....

Cool watches. But I don't wear one. I have a cell phone on me all the time and it has a clock on it.

This one I don't know much about. It was my great grandfather'*, it'* from the 1800s, and it no longer works. That'* about all I know. The Colt 1911 next to it works great, though.
