Over the last year I've become fascinated with watches. I've got a decent collection going now, nothing crazy like Rolexes or AP's, but I suspect plenty of NES'rs have some cool watches.

In particular, I love divers. I don't dive, but that's a majority of my collection. So what's everyone rocking? I'll start this off with my watch that I wear for work. I don't want any of my decent watches to get smashed, so I wear a g-Shock on duty.

It's a GW-2310 Tough Solar that I put some JaysAndKays NATO adapters on, and a 22mm black NATO. Super comfortable, auto-backlight, and atomic time. It's perfect for work, as I don't have to do a damn thing to it. Just toss it on.

My favorite watch (at least currently):


Picked it up around 2008. Band, case and back are all high tech ceramic with a sapphire crystal. I don't like complicated/cluttered watches.

My 'backup' watch, or what I wear when I don't want to risk my Rado, is a Seiko titanium chronograph. Got that around 1995. Super light, but more cluttered than I want these days. I'm also looking at a couple of Movado watches and might pick up one of those in the next few months.

G Shock here as well. I beat the bag out of my watches so I stick with G



Would want another brand that can take the abuse but still haven't found one yet.

Gift from my ex wife. Hasn't had a battery in years, but I still wear it on internet dates. You should hear the BS I make up when they ask why the time is wrong.

Will post a real pic, but this will do for now. Montblanc Meisterstuck - my current favorite, and daily driver.

Here's my Seiko Diver's 150 for you then. Got it from my parents some 35 years ago before I joined the IDF. I keep it in mint condition and that's pretty much the only watch I have.

Went from years of G-shock watches at work to an I watch last year. Rolex sea dweller or sub mariner is on the bucket list though.

My Fossil finally bit the dust after 16 years of service.

So, I asked Santa for Citizen EcoDrive. Tired of having to change watch batteries.

I actually just picked up the Bulova Moon Watch re-issue. I really like it a lot. I'll post a pic of it here eventually.

I'll have to add my watches later. But a G Shock note, my dad bought a G Shock back in like 91ish. 25 years later the battery in that thing is still going.

I wear this watch as my EDC and its the sickest GPS running watch I've ever owned. Tracks everything under the sun. I run and use the GPS every single day (currently on a 195 day running streak) and still only charge it once every two weeks.

Another G-Shock fan here. I've had it a year and a half now, don't worry about it in the least and there's not a scratch on it.

My only beefs are that I have to take the thing off to fully depress the freaking Adjust button and the Start/Stop/Reset buttons aren't the same for the Timer and Stopwatch. Why the hell is the buried Adjust button the reset on the Timer when there's a perfectly good button already on the watch for that function?
