    here is mine - a Citizen Eco Drive Titanium

    got it for my 18th 4 years ago - hasnt missed a beat at all, great watch!

    it could do with some polishing though to remove some of the swirls and scratches ;)

    might invest in another watch in the near future - liking some of the omega's and Tags - would love a Briel watch!

    Omega seamaster chronometer, wear it everyday. Cant see the point of having something this well built and having it sat in a box!

    I don't wear one everyday, I find them to uncomfortable at work. I have a Rotary elite which I wear on evenings out etc.

    I also have a Seiko 5 Superior Sport 200m SKZ211

    They are both automatic, and both keep really good time.

    I've been Breitling shopping too, narrowed it down to the Super Avenger or the Chrono Avenger but don't know which one.

    The only difference really is the size, the Super Avenger being that bit bigger.

    I feel poor. There's way too many Omega's, Rolex's, Breitling's, etc for my liking. I just have a simple Suunto Observer Titanium (great for skydiving).

    You've spent too much money on that S3 of yours Chris, at least a watch will hold some of it's value! ;)

    Good choice jojo, is that the Speedy Date? That's the watch I was intending to buy when I got mine, but saw the Aqua Terra and loved it so got it instead! I'll have to get a Speedmaster at a later date ;)

    Hey another Rado fan, I have a Ceramica Multifunction in Black, very understated IMHO and looks damn good in the mediteranian sun.

    The Mrs has just bought a Jubile in silver and black the 12 diamond version.

    Here is a pic of the one I have :-

    Pics!!!!

    I tried on a very plain looking Muller and when I asked how much the guy politely said, 'it's white gold, £16,000.' I had to come clean and tell him it was out of my price range so I just went home and dreamed.

    You can get copies of everything. They even come with ETA movements the same as you get in Omega's. The differance is that you know its snide.

    Maybe not an Omega Seamaster (which is gorgeous btw :icon_thumright: ) but still a very nice gift all the same :)

    You need to shop around mate, you can get most Daytona’s with little wait, especially if you go over to the states. I love watches, always have, if I won the lotto, I would lose some serious cash on them

    Im considering getting one of these in September when a 10yr savings plan I started on my 21st b'day will pay out, 10yrs, where did they go?!
    [​IMG]

    Question is, i've seen it through online watch retailers that cost up to 25% less than a normal retail store yet are still promising full warranty cards etc as if bought from eg Goldsmiths. Has anyone used an online retailer and had good/bad experiences? Are they kosha and really do give you the same legit warranty cards etc?? Oh, and currently use this as an everyday watch......

    I personally would say go for an OMEGA instead, but if you like the TAG then find a independent jewellery and have a deal with him. I bought my OMEGA and ROLEX both with really good discounts for cash.

    Didnt know there was a shop in Bicester, its only an hour away so might pay a visit, im sure the missus can amuse herself in some way whilst we're there. Ref the Omega option, considering this as an alternative but if I can get the £2k Tag Link for £1500 then its a serious consideration. This Omega Speedmaster is the alternative....
    [​IMG]
    Need to compare really so think a lunch break annoying Goldsmiths is in order!!
