Default The Watch Thread

Do we have any watch guys here? I've recently become interested in them and was wondering if anyone else is. Post up/discuss your watch, or collection of watches, maybe one you have your eye on or one on your wish list. I'll start with mine.

I got my first watch about two months ago, as my 18th birthday present. The Seiko SNDC87 chrono. Stainless steel case and bracelet, 40mm case diameter. So far it's been a great watch and I've gotten a few compliments on it. This is currently my daily, but that really should change soon.



Very sharp, modern face. It's versatile enough to be dressed up or down.



Here it is on my 6" wrist, not overpowering at all. I'm very happy with the size.



Next, is this Fossil Dr. Pepper edition. My dad got it from work as a 5-year gift. He stopped wearing it years ago (and consequently forgot about it) so I've adopted it as mine. Resized the bracelet and installed a new battery and it's good to go. I don't wear it so often because I get some less than positive feedback about the huge Dr. P logo on it, but sometimes the two tone is nice. Here are pics:

Next to the Seiko

Cool texturing on the face, and a scratchless crystal.



As for what's next, I'm thinking it's time for a diver watch. I'm considering the Casio MDV106, while the price is an absolute steal.

So on that note, let's see what you've got. Post em up!

I'll see about posting some of mine. I used to have a decent watch collection. But I kind of stopped wearing them once I started sticking my hands into complicated machine in order to fix them. That and once the damn phone became an e-leash...

That looks pretty nice! Again with the beverage logo, lol, but it looks to be a Seiko 5 which is a good watch itself. If you could find the right buyer you could probably sell it for give or take $50.

It's just the model of the watch. There isn't a Seiko 4 or 6 or anything.
