Personally I really like wrist watches. I would like to know if there is more forum members with the same passion.

I will buy my first mechanical and automatic watch very soon. It's Orient Ray 2 (image down bellow).

Do you own any watch? Please share an image and any story you have.

I'm a big watch guy but don't buy watches at this point.

The only watch I'm rocking right now is an all-time classic (and admittedly over-worn): the Seiko SKX007K with an oyster bracelet.

Extremely versatile in terms of style (works great with a Perlon strap, NATO, Tropic, jubilee, oyster etc.), durable as hell (both in construction and its 7s26 movement), well-priced (incredible value for the price), is an iconic diver, and has historical significance too.

Fantastic lume, 200m diving depth (if you're into that), 120 click bezel, day-date function. Plus it has a clean and timeless aesthetic. What more could you ask for in a watch under $200?



The Orient Ray 2 looks fantastic. I was considering getting the Orient Mako II USA but went for the SKX007.

I had the same debate, but I decided on Orient. I will buy SKX007 one day for sure!

As you said, its crazy its so iconic yet pretty cheap.

I didn't know if I'd be into watches, so I asked my wife to get me a couple cheap ones for Christmas. I've been wearing it every day since, so safe to say that I'm into them.

I'm dailying a Casio 5373. Japanese quartz movement with a 43mm face. Day-date complication and a small LED light to illuminate it at night. Not bad for $60.



Edit: My first watch purchase will be the Bulova Lunar Pilot, as it was the other watch (well, a replica) worn to the moon. Pretty neat history and I enjoy the look.

I'm a watch guy...though I don't spend outside my means to get them. I have a couple Tags and Tissots, but my dream watch is the 1969 Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch...just beautiful. I was just recently given a Gruen pocket watch and that will be fun to play with. Love this thread.

Love watches. Can't afford a nice piece, yet.

As someone that was considering the SKX007 after reading all the hype about it (and still might buy), I ended up going with the same watch as you, Orient Ray ii but in all black. I have owned it for about 6 months now and it has held up great, very good looking watch as well. Only thing I was surprised about is that it wears smaller than I had pictured but this may be due to me having 6.5in wrists. Overall I am definitely happy about my purchase and get compliments all the time, and honestly after taking the plunge I will probably buy a skx007 in addition to my orient, hope this helps!

I'm really glad it wears small as I don't have a huge wrist. Personally I don't prefer watches with black metal, I may change my mind if I ever see this one live.

That's awesome! Please share a photo of your new SKX when you buy it. I would definitely be interested to see it! You can mix both watches with some nato straps. They are very cheap to order from eBay.

I wear my Tissot T-Touch everyday now. It’s classy, good-looking, fits well and is interesting. I chose it as a wedding anniversary gift while she was buying necklaces and other shiny stuff every year.
My other one is a unique Swatch design. Astronomy based, meaning alot of blue color and a blank face except for some dotted star patterns.
I’ve grown to appreciate watches and enjoy learning more about them.

Daily wear is a Galaxy Watch 46mm at the moment. I also wear a Citizen Worldtime often.

More formal I have a super slim Raymond Weil dress watch with leather strap.

I want this Jaeger Le Coultre... Master Calendar 1558421 | Jaeger-LeCoultre the face is made of meteorite! That's just too cool.

I have a few vintage watches, as they:
1) are cool
2) suit my wrist size
3) (some of them) suit my budget

My favourite is a 1952 Omega that looks something like this, but isn’t a Seamaster & doesn’t have that cool cross-hatching.



Watches are definitely something I’d love to get more into, but is alas far down the priority list at the moment. Will follow this thread & drool for sure though! [emoji23]

I love the red and navy blue contrast.

Casio Men's G-Shock GWM5610-1 Tough Solar Black Resin Sport Watch

This is my everyday watch, and I'm glad I never have to fiddle with it to set it
I have a few others but don't wear them unless I'm at a formal event like a wedding

I have a T-Touch that I've really enjoyed over the years. Mechanical-wise, Tissot makes one of the finer watches out there, but is not as well thought of as the higher end brands.

Really a huge fan of watches, when I get my hustle game up definitely rewarding myself with an automatic watch. Way more rewarding than a car in my opinion.
