I wear it rarely -- only on special occasions or a night out.

I think I don't get over its novelty then, I have a thin Tissot that I wear day to day:


I like that since it has the date -- the Rolex doesn't which is why I like wearing it once in a while

Just this past weekend my wife got me an Omega Speedmaster Day Date for my bday. I am now forced to wear it almost every day because I sure wouldn't want to go through the hassle of getting it current when it runs out of power!

Panerai watches are actually some of the rarest watches due to tight supply by the company. A little like de beers controlling the supply of diamonds if you ask me. There is not a lot of heritage either as most of their watches use ETA movements. I think the design is great though, but I do think they are way overpriced.

I wear a Zenith chronomaster open daily. Sometimes I will just stare at the El Primero movement. Very nice watch.

My next target is an AP Royal Oak. I would go for the offshore if my wrist was not too thin, but I tried one on at the dealer and the lugs were sticking out.

+rep to you. That's an awesome watch....love the Zeniths. The AP ROO has some incredible special editions, but also at an incredible price tag...

Cool

Had to pull the pics from the internet, but we got these yesterday. Our ten-year wedding anniversary is Dec 31. I absolutely love mine and don't ever want to take it off!

Ive got a few Pams and a couple of swiss chronos, but if someone asks me, I say all my watches are Chinese-made replicas.

Other than the Timex LCD I wear to work out.

My first Swiss I treated myself to for my 40th b-day was an Omega SMP! Congrats.

The IWC Pilot chronograph (not Big Pilot chronograph by the way) is a wonderful watch. That would be a great Xmas gift.

Thanks, Mike.

So what watches should a BMW driver wear? By the way I'd rather drive a Maserati than my 328i. Also, I wear a Chopard Pro One, JeanRichard Paramount and Seiko Orange Monster.

Thanks, Mike.

Thanks, Mike.

If you have enough money to be chauffered in a 760iL and live on a multi-$million estate a $5000 watch might make sense

Otherwise the average BMW is not all that special in this day and age. The idea in general seems rather pretentious.
