    Pretty sure there isn't a single Panerai on the market that I'm willing to pay for at the moment

    But if you find a Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT or something along those lines in Black Ceramic finish for under 500 bucks, let me know

    One of the reasons I like vintage watches is that they have history - familial or otherwise. If I ever have grandchildren, I don't think that they will want my HTC Thunderbolt, or think fondly of me when looking at it.

    The ends of telling time isn't as important to many people than the means that get them to that result.

    Watches are more than just timing devices. Just to have a handmade mechanical watch perform perfectly is a work of art. I had a Mont Blanc that was assembled by one watchmaker from start to finish taking approximately 2 months to complete. The piece was gorgeous. Absolute perfection.... It drew many admirers. I ended up selling it for more than i paid and bought my Ducati with the proceeds.

    To me they are art for the wrist.

    Re: Any other watch geeks here?

    I've always loved watches but never really spent a lot of money on them. I came across this company Lüm-Tec that is out of Ohio and really like some of his watches. He hand builds all of his watches, has excellent customer service, and actually listens to his customers feedback. He's on a bunch of watch forums under the name, Ray Knight. All of his watches are limited and numbered. I have a couple of his watches so far. I try and buy one per year.

    Check them out:
    http://lum-tec.com/

    I'd really love a Bell & Ross and a Panerai but they are out of my price range at the moment. One day!

    Here are some my Lüm-Tec watches:
    M21- Tungsten Carbide (Handwind)



    Combat B2- Real Carbon Face ( Automatic. My favorite and he only made 6 of these!)


    Combat B11- Carbon 24hr (Quartz)


    M8- Tungsten/Carbon to match my wedding ring (Automatic)

    Re: Any other watch geeks here?

    love watches, the only bit of jewelry I'll wear....however, I'm broke and cannot justify buying a nice piece, so I settle with fossil. the GF did get me a nice armani watch for christmas last year but other than that i've been set on breitlings, but those lum-tec's are pretty damn sweet.

    Topping my list of watches I'd like to get eventually is an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.


    --mark
    Aah I forgot about my Diver, only mine is yellow. I never wear the thing as I hate the rubber strap and haven't yet found a stainless or leather one that I feel looks right.


    And with regards to the Omega.... my father and I have always had Seiko's all our lives and neither of us ever had an issue with one. My father decides he is finally going to get his Omega Divemaster. Within a month of getting it, it's back to the manufacturer as it would not keep time and the crown was coming loose.

    breitling and panerai here. Breitling is my daily driver, thing is bullet proof. Panerai when I wear a suit or otherwise dress up. Used to have an IWC, those are great.

    You won't be disappointed if you decide to get one! Pictures don't really do them justice. I think there is a offer code out there for 10% off. If you want one PM me and I'll try and find that code.

    Abington makes some good pilot watches for women.

    I just needed to find an excuse to post up a picture of this chick. Amazingly hot, and the person who started the company if I am reading correctly.

    Re: Any other watch geeks here?

    I've been looking for a decent "dress" kind of watch for a while now. The only problem is I have scrawny chicken arms so all the nice looking mens watches looked absolutely ridiculous on me. Lucked out and found this guy at a store, fits nicely and looks nice for a suit.

    On top of this, she is a pilot, and a good one at that (certified flight instructor as well).

    I got my second Rolex last week. An old girlfriend bought me a Submariner about 20 years ago. Ironically the band broke when I got hit with a spinnaker pole during a sailboat race and it went over the rail into the ocean.....

    My latest was my fathers second of three Rolex's. An Oyster Perpetual Datejust in stainless with 10 diamonds and a gold/ss bracelet. It'll stay in the safe deposit box for 99% of the time.
