That's my one.
Thread: Lets Talk Watches
Here's my Seiko:
Now, I got it because I wanted an affordable automatic watch (this was less than $140 shipped), and it's been great, but I really didn't like the fact that it looks almost too much like a Rolex. So I bought a Zodiac. And after a year, Zodiac's battery is dead, and I'm wearing the Seiko again. I have to say I have a growing appreciation for the Seiko. It's a good watch.
This is mine.
TX-770 Series Sport Fly-Back Chronograph
My newest watch purchase:
I was just browsing on ebay when I spotted this
I quite like it and if I manage to cap my perfume purchases, I am going to buy this.
I got a an
Audemars Piguet - Royal Oak
Panerai 312 (different custom made straps from far east Asia)
Rolex Milgauss GV
^Handsome PAM collection you got there.
Seem you have a thing for the 1950 case. Nice!!
Cx827, thanks it's the same watchmin different straps haha
^YEAH! i thought the second one had gold hands
Fragrances bit deep into my previous watch obsession. I have kept some from over the years.
Oris big Crown (original) - bought 1998
Omega Seamaster GMT - bought 2002 (40th birthday gift to self)
Tissot SeaStar 1000 Diver - bought 2006
Panerai Luminor GMT - bought 2 weeks ago
It has occurred to me that i like watches with black faces
I also have a Swatch, TW Steel Automatic and a Kenneth Cole watch, all in various states of disrepair. Will do good by them soon.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I will finish paying off some debts this year, Lord willing in May or June. All the debt I'll have left then is my house and our two cars. I know I'll want to reward myself with a new watch (paying cash, thank you very much!).
What I don't know is which brand? Something around $1500...
My two newest watches are ESQ by Movado brand. I'm slowly trying to inch up in the level of things I can buy. These will have to do until I can afford a Tag Carrera...
This one was the wedding gift I received from my wife.

@perfuaddict Put a strip of plastic tape on the watch/lugs area when you change the strap, it could prevent some accidental scratch from the screwdriver.
Am kicking myself for not picking this up during my Cathay Pacific flight to Australia. I noted down the model and thought that I shall be able to get it cheaper on ebay. I was so wrong as it appears it's a Cathay Pacific exclusive.
As a bassist, I just can't stand something big on my wrist. The Skagen slim style just works for me. I got one similar (or maybe the same?) to this Skagen in Taos on my honeymoon 15 years ago, and still wear it nearly every day.
This is my favorite I bought 3 years ago no longer available:
1. Montale Wild Aoud
2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
3. Montale Red Vetyver
4. Montale Aoud Lime
5. Le Labo Vetiver 46
Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
Got this White Kontas dress watch, which really gets no use at all.
I'm thinking something black in alligator would look nice. Quite long as I've got big wrists.
It's quite a slim watch so I guess nothing too thick or too padded. 18mm lugs.
Thoughts, comments and ideas appreciated...
Though it's still a long way to an Omega Seamaster, on the way, I've just picked up
Looks like watches is my new found love....Just spotted this the evil bay & I have set it within my sights already....
i am so ready to get a Michelle watch for me soon
I wear a 13-year old TAG. And just got a Tissot as a gift. Nice wrist blings in this thread, inc. a few replicas. Heh. Ballsy move. Spotting fakes from the real ones has been a recent obsession of mine...
Im going to buy a Omega Seamaster or a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera.
Its nice huh
Any Seiko lovers here who could help me achieve this customisation of SKX007?
I do realize *from the source of the pic* that the bezel in this picture has presumably been taken from SKX011J, however that bezel is not black on the ridged circumference. The bracelet, I've found is Gold Steel Jubilee that I traced down to chronograph.com
This bezel search is driving me crazy. Any help that'd put me on track is greatly appreciated. PM's welcome.

If I want a vintage ladies watch, which brands should I be looking for? Thank you... I like the thought but I'm completely clueless regarding brands and quality... :P
My swap list: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/269...Small-Swaplist!!

I love watches. Crisis has stopped me, but I still love them. That's why my avatar is a photo of the Patek Philippe symbol.
I'm starting to love perfumes, but I have a long way to explore ahead.
I wonder if there are more watches lovers at Basenotes, and that's why I ask you to post the combo you enjoy more (last days..., who knows next week? ) and the one you wish you had.
I wish I had...
And one of these, but I'm not sure enough...
Have a nice day/night
me too,I have a watch/ fragrance "fetish" too.. And I'm proud of it!! I also have several Omega watches..perhaps you should check out the Omega forum on "Watchuseek" as well...
I own a Breitling Steelfish, a Tag Heuer Carrera, a Swiss Army Chrono Classic, and a Seiko Diver, in addition to a Black Fossil and a Black Dooney & Bourke. My dream watch is a Rolex Submariner or Rolex GMT II.
I actually own almost every scent I desire, so I guess an "A" batch 4 OZ bottle of Creed Aventus is a dream goal.
Please don't lure me into another wallet draining hobby!
I'm too much of a cheapskate to fork over that much money for even a single watch, let alone a collection, but I defend your right to do so if it brings you pleasure. Only one fine timepiece sorely tempted me - a Rolex Green Milgauss. But at 7 Grand, I had about as much chance of buying it as I would an Aston Martin DBS (i.e., NONE). Both inhabit a world apart from mine. I do own a rather cheap Tag Heuer, but the band broke several years ago and I discovered that its replacement would cost several times more than the quite accurate Timex that I bought as a temporary stand-in. I decided to keep the Timex; love the Indiglo!

I'm into watches as well. I had a Speedy Pro, IWC Mark XVI and Tutima Nato Chrono. Currently reorganizing my collection so everything is sold and I'm left with a couple of Seiko Monsters (Orange and Black). My gf wears my IWC Aquatimer 2000 Ti, although since the watch seems to suit her so well, I've came to the conclusion that it is now her watch.
I'm not into fancy watches, I go for cheapos. But anyway, for what I own:
Among your two "I wish", I vote for Chergui. Although the beautiful green rim of the watch makes me think that the perfume should probably have a prominent green note as well (which neither of your choices have). Yatagan, then? (first vegetal, then woody)
I don't own any of these, but they're all on my list of ones i'm interested in and hope to pick up a few of these in the next 5+ years...
Wish I owned:

NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .
Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

i liquidated my watch collection a few months ago
Omega PlanetOcean Chrono
Tag Heuer Carrera Chrono
not sure i want to get back into watches... found they were a PITA to take care of most of the time. perhaps a Patek or Vacheron at some point in life, but for now I have better uses for my cash.
THAT is by far the sickest Movado I have ever seen. =)
Nice watches everyone, dayum! haha I have quite a few decent watches. Glycine, Tissot, victorinox and a bunch of Hamiltons. they're my favs
One of my Hamiltons
edit: just realized I probably already posted this on here somewhere. oops owell

I have a 1985 vintage Rolex Day-Date (36mm) which I still wear for the formal occasions; for office wear I now have an Omega Constellation Double Eagle in stainless steel; and for weekends I wear a Seiko Arctura stainless model. Love them all. I have been looking at the Breitlings recently and am impressed with many of their current offerings. And when I win the lottery I will get a Patek Philippe!
is it wrong i adore my gold MICHAEL KORS watch?
Favorite combos of mine that I own.
Rolex Day/Date Gold w/Navy face (I also have the original gold face)
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille or Byredo Fantastic Man
Breitling Quartz 1 Black leather strap w/Navy face
By Kilian A Taste of Heaven or DK Men
**The Rolex is 20 years old. Both watches were my fathers. I own a few watches but these are my crown jewels.
The list of what I want is too long
I have my fav. Its a Movado Museum watch. Its a classic elegant watch. But what I wouldnt do for a Patek.
Another interest of mine thats severely limited by my (lack of) disposable income, along with sportscars and smelling good...
A few of my faves (this is a loony wishlist, wheres that lottery ticket...):
Baume et Mercier Riviera XXL
Longines Clous de Paris, some of their Sport Conquest are also v nice
Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Titanium
Bulgari Bulgari, Diagono Pro
Mont Blanc Star XL, Timewalker
Breitling Superocean Heritage, Chronomat Steel & Gold
Chanel J12 Black
I don't like wearing any sort of jewellery and haven't worn a watch for years. If I must know the time, I look at my mobile phone.
I own a S/S Rolex Airking (early 90's) and a Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Moon (early 2000's).
My wishlist includes the Rolex GMT, Lange & Söhne 1815, Richard Lange, Vacheron Constantin Patrimony.
I own a classic Tag Heuer and a beat up Panerai replica - both received as gifts. I love them both equally, for their sentimental value not necessarily intrinsic. Would rather sponsor a poor kid thru' school than spend that kinda money on a watch but I do appreciate quality watchmaking craftmanship. Anyway a wish list seems harmless enough:
Tag Heuer Monaco (vintage)
Panerai Luminor GMT
Panerai Luminor (Paneristi edition)
a Rolex DayDate
an Audemar Piguet Royal Oak
a Cartier Santos
any Richard Mille (GDP-equivalent of a small nation no less)
Amouage Memoir Man
DS & Durga $
Abdessalam (Profumo.it) Alacho
Creed Cuir de Russie
Caron Tabac Blond (vintage extrait)
Guerlain Mitsouko (vintage extrait)
M Francis Kurkdjian's complete line
Own: Panerai Luminor GMT pam88, Omega Seamaster GMT, Tissot Sea Star 1000 Diver, Oris Big Crown...
Watch: Rolex GMT Master II
Frag: Dunhill Blend 30 among others
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I am like Cacia and into less expensive watches.. an avid Swatch fan. Though some of the nice ones can be over $200 - that is nowhere near the several thousands that some of the watches above cost.
I am very much a kid of the 80s so my dream Swatches would be the Keith Haring swatches (about $800 each)
Avec Personnages http://www.squiggly.com/us/en/swatch...ages-gz100.htm
Blanc Sur Noir http://www.squiggly.com/us/en/swatch...noir-gz104.htm
Milles Pattes http://www.squiggly.com/us/en/swatch...ttes-gz103.htm
and the Haley's Comet (under $100 - should grab it next time I see it)
Frangrance-wise - I love the big bold, obnoxious, dark and intense -- alternating with the sweet Guerlain confections. My next house to hit is Serge Lutens -- so Barney's in Chicago - watch out for me on Saturday on my way to the gig at Hunter's!

Anyone else ever seen the Manometro watches by Giuliano Mazzuoli? Simple, gorgeous.
CorruptedSanity, your choice of a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has got to be the call of the thread. I challenge anyone to look at one of those and not wish they had a raidable trust fund...
I really don't get this watch stuff, and boy, am I glad.
So you've seen the rest, but now you'll see the best! Here are the 5 watches that most impress me!
I use to own this watch. I have no idea where it disappeared to, but it was fairly inexpensive, and I use to get almost daily compliments on it. I wll soon be replacing it. Dakota Volcano
This one has to be the most uniquely styled watch I've ever seen. The Glashutte Tourbillon Regulator. Goes for about 82 large too!
This one has a beautiful band! I love that reddish brown band! Lovely face as well. I think someone may have posted this one in another color earlier. This is the IWC Portuguese Regulateur:
I think this one is rather nice. Fairly inexpensive too. Goes for under $200. This is most likely gonna be my next watch. Stuhrling Original Eclipse II:
I just found this one, in searching of the others, and I find it to be rather nice:
if it comes to it, this is the next watch
probably going to get on the shelf a little sooner
This is the only watch I've ever wanted. Too bad prices start at $48,000.
