*sigh* really beautiful watches all over this thread. Been following this thread for a long time, without actually getting enough steam to get up and photograph all my watches and post. Both of us are incurable watch buyers, and a stopover at a good watch shop can spice up any mundane shopping trip for us.

Well, here goes a shot of most of my watches together in one place. This obviously doesn't include those my wife has...

Thanks nick! Someday I'll pick up the courage to post pics of all the watches my wife (and daughter) own between themselves. No one here seems to have dared to post pics of ladies' watches yet!

My wife collects only gold jewellery and silk sarees!

I too have the same Timex model with Roman markers that is on the top left of your picture.

LOL. There's no one here whose wife does not collect these! My wife is as much an expert on sarees as she is on teeth (she's a dentist too!). She'll tell you what state a particular saree came from and what it's called, what material, and prices within 5% of wholesale market rates. All this at ten paces! And if such a saree is not in her collection already, it will be added within the next month or two (no, she wouldn't walk into the nearest showroom and buy at escalated retail prices - she'll find the lowest price possible). You might find it interesting to know that we have been to wholesale saree shops in cities from Kolkata to Hyderabad to Bangalore to Calicut to Delhi to Ahmedabad to Jaipur to Jamnagar to... Oh - never mind... you get the drift.

You do not have any option left but wear if it is gifted by your wife.

I will get the model number after going home. I forget the price as it was purchased sometime in 1998. Here is a more latest one bought in 2008. MRP Rs 5500 and I bought it @20% discount offer:

The last 2 watches that I purchased:-

Which watch do you own-watches.png

Love the Black and Steel look. No golden for me please. I won a golden watch with maroon strap once which was promptly gifted to a relative.

Apart from them, I have a Titan watch (Gray and Steel) & a London watch (again Black & Steel, very much like the Guess watch but with a square dial rather than rectangle). No pics of them right now :(

@SS-Traveller
Nice collection u got there sir


Sorry no contributions from my side to the 'Wife's watch' part. Still Happy
