Hmm my watches will be the paupers in this collection here....hehe
I have a 5 yr old Titan watch / leather belt (which I wear sometimes) and a $6 silver metal belt bought in a Walmart (which I use even less) ;-)

The current watch I'm wearing right now is a 4 jewel swatch irony. Total aluminium look, totally chic looking. My other regulars are a giodano, an esprit and a junkers.

Godspeed.

Alok.

Hi

I have casio protrek triple sensor Model PRG-50
Mine is with resin band. Cool watch for trekking and travelling wit Altimeter, Barometer, thermometer and digital compass, Duplex LCd, auto backlight Its Tough solar so no need for battery replacement. A GPS system and it would be perfect.
Altimeter has to be caliberated for accuracy. Also it has built in Ascent descent recorder to help scaling heights. Cool watch.

I have a watch that only tells me the time in hours and minutes, no seconds. It does not even tell me the date. That is because there is no place for a second hand or date functions.

It's the super thin - Titan Edge

It's smart, elegant and I love it because of sentimental reasons - I was gifted this watch for my marriage.

The other one is a Titanium Citizen analog watch with digital processing. Tells the time, date, chronograph, alarm, stopwatch, calendar...blah blah. Main reason of use is that its completely water proof and I can swim with it. Its also very light.

BUT THE BEST CLOCK THAT I HAVE LIKED IS THE ONE THAT WAS ON THE DASH OF THE FORD ESCORT. UNFORTUNATELY THE BALENO DOES NOT HAVE ANY SPACE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT ON ITS DASH.

There is a provision for a clock though which is mostly not filled because of the Stereo Systems having the time display anyway. But i wouldn't mind filling in that clock space, if it would tell me the outside temperature, time etc, something like the Opel's multi info meters. Does anyone have a clue where you can get something like this?

Regards,
Burjis

I dont know how I missed it, since i love watches almost as much as cars..if as much equals 10%

but i am crazi about watches too..

currently a small collection since all the watches you have named are top tier..ferraris of the watch world...

EDIT: Actually let me correct that you have the Paganis and Koinegsegg's of the watch world..cuz ferrari would be like rolex..so..man good stuff..my dad also likes watches and he has a Patek, Rolex, AP and Franck

Currently I have a Panerai Chrono, Cartier Pasha, Cartier Roadster, Looking to get a AudemarsP Montoya Royal Oak Offshore..thats going to a big big savings dip...also got a rolex daytona and should recieve my piaget upstream soon..

Finally decided to give up my loyal DKNY and get my self a BVLGARI Diagno ..... Love the simple styling of it with the option of no chrono since i dont see the point of it......cost 3800$ @ the BVLGARI store in NYC.......how much do you guys think it would cost in bombay or which is the cheapest city to get it from?
Also, how much do the rolex sport series cost?
