    ahh, very nice :D .
    guessing you will only wear it on special occasions? lol.
    sorta reminds me of an Errol FLynn type deal. He was a famous black and white movies actor, or James Dean.

    Thanks Ben, really confused me when I got it as you don't take links out. It has an adjustable clamp. :D
    I'll be wearing it all the time. Except when biking, just in case. James Dean? Interesting...

    ahh, because sometimes BMX biking can make things wear out like shoes, so it would be awful if something happened to the watch..i see. wise choice, buddy.
    sounds like you take really good care of your things :) .
    that is an admirable quality. :) .

    Just in case I fall off and break it. So it'll stay in the box when I go riding.

    Nice watch you got there Polarbear,
    I got a bunch of watches laying around, a G-Shock Mudman, a Timex Ironman, these two are great for outdoor sports such as BMX^ ( also for military use).
    I have an automatic Calvin Klein from '02 ltd which has a clear case back!!


    Buy a Mudman if you're croco hunting or riding low your bmx bike through the valley of death, and get an Ironman for daily use and everyday life.

    G-Shock Mudman, as it says great for rallye timing, use it for outdoor survival expeditions fyi.

    I just got a corum admirals cup that's supposed to be my 21st bday present, when I turned 18 I got a Santos Carbon but I never get to wear it... My dad is a big fan of watches he has a large collection me, I don't like them as much.

    AARRGGHH....no, I'm a watch geek with no money!
    I have a nice Omega Constellation from the early 70's that is knackered, no parts available, and a Breitling Chrono for posh evenings out.
    However my favourite watch is an old military CWC G10, not very expensive, it will last forever (ie it's squaddie proof).
    And a couple of cheapie Mondaine Swiss watches, that have a very clear face, I need all the help I can get with my toot eyesight.
    And some......no stop me there.......................

    Dayuuum Chris! You got some style with that Chrono.
    I'm applying for a job at Cartier in Bond Street tomorrow.

    I'm a Casio person, but I happen to have a GMT from the '60s. :neutral: The original band broke so it's wearing a Seiko band. (A replacement Rolex band costs close to $1K, so I'm sticking with the Casio!)

    Very nice GMT pookie, the dials have a stunning yellow!

    Second-hand market makes available great looking watches but some are not that accurate anymore, keep that in mind when you look at 1950's Datejust models . :)

    I have a Nixon tide watch. Tells me when the tides are right for surfing.

    To me it's just a remembrance of my Dad; the Casio lets me know when it's time to leave work, and calculate tips. Personally, I'd rather have a 4-bolt Strat from '71 though. Watch-wise, I'd like to get one of those funky Bulova Accutrons with the tuning fork from that era.
