Nope.
Someday I may buy an expensive watch but, my concept of what is expensive is probably very different from everybody elses. I drive my car because it is fun to drive. I wouldn't be able to explain that to somebody who doesn't understand so, I don't even try. I like nice watches but, I have yet to spend more than several hundred on one. Like I said maybe someday.

The Calibre 36 is the only movement by TAG which hasn't broken in my collection. Nice looking watch.

AutoUnion, that TAG is hott! And I have a friend who has that Bell & Ross. Nice indeed with mucho presence.

I don't believe in splurging too much cash on watches, never have. But I do appreciate them.

I'm a fan of the "chunky" style watches, at least 50mm case. I really like Invicta and Stuhrling. They serve my purpose well: great looking, reliable & reasonably priced.

Here's a few of my latest:

Tex,
Have you looked at the Swiss Legend watches, especially the scubador?
Someone wore this to my office last week and I was mesmerized by it even though I was wearing a brietling navitimer.

Casio Pathfinder PAW-2000 Solar Atomic Triple Sensor watch

For $269 it does everything I want it to, I love the sunrise/sunset data (I found myself buying it when I was trying to get photos of sunsets and didn't know when the sun was exactly going down), the barometer and compass work well too.

Now if they could a)make the alarms louder and b)incorporate both sunrise/sunset AND moon/tide data (currently you either get one or the other), they'd have a killer on their hands.

Here's a video someone took a couple of years ago on it when it first came out:

I have that exact watch in black leather strap. Everywhere I go someone asks me what brand and how much I paid for it. We can trade watches if you like. :-)

Man that is an outstanding looking watch! The colors, dial, strap and face are real nice. I own one Swiss Legend which is the black leather, orange chrono, pictured above. Great looking watch. Impressed with the quality. I will definitely seek that one out.

I like your collection of watches. I'm a big guy so I also like big but not chunky watches. I tend to be very hard on watches. I always hit them on tables, chairs, doors, small children etc. (Kidding about the small children)
That is probably why I don't buy expensive watches. My wife surprised me with an Invicta a few months back. I don't even know the name of the model but, I really like it. In the past she has also surprised me with Guess, Fossil and assorted other watches. Not expensive but, If she liked them I generally liked them.

I know what you mean about "being hard on watches". I also tend to accidentally bang them up pretty good. I bought my first Invicta (Lupah) years ago. That watch has held up VERY well and still gets compliments. I was sold! I now own about 5 or 6 of them.

Omega Speedmaster, got it as a gift last Christmas. Seeing as my uncle gave it to me, I'm not 100% sure about it's authenticity.

I think my Casio G-shock is 10 years old. About the age of my car. Has built-in solar cells and goes to sleep in the dark. Water resitant to 200m. Best watch I've ever had.

I had a Citizen for a couple months before water got into it (while wearing it in the shower). Expensive watches are just a waste of money, IMHO.
