    Ha ha ha, not having a pop but using the term "thats gay" as an adjective instead of a sexual orientation really isnt demonstrating a basic grasp of the english language!!

    Anyway, back to the point a designer brand watch like anything in life, there's cheap or expensive options, its personal choice as to what you prefer. I like a designer watch, cant afford loads so dont have lots, dosent stop me liking them though.

    Nah, argos only sell chav jewellery. Using the rational of dropping £3K on a watch making you gay surely the worst you'd get from argos is bi-sexual?

    Like I said, I never used the term "that's gay", but even taken out of context, which seems to be the mood of the day, gay is not just a sexual orientation as you well know.
    One of it's definitions is "brightly coloured or showy"
    So either way your "pop" is not valid.

    back on topic i think!...

    I have a full size omega seamaster chrono and an Omega speedmaster chrono .
    Also have a Tag 1000 and a really good fake 'snoopy' watch which keeps excellent time!,

    BTW I think that Omega watches are neither 'Bright and showy' or predominantly worn by Homosexuals! (as far as I know)... :happy:

    I love good watches - have a 2 x Tag Heuers - 1 Link Chrono, the other Aquaracer, Lewis Hamilton Ltd Edition of 3500 pieces - hoping this will be worth a bob or two in a few years.

    Yes, I was quite happy to see my watch now retails at £1800 in the shop window just before christmas, since I paid just under 1200 for it about 5 years ago maybe?

    My wife paid full price (silly girl) of £1825 for my 300chrono 3.5 years ago (now retails at £2230),
    I paid £1675 for my PO 3 years ago when it retailed at £1875 (now @ £2430)
    and £1750 for the Speedy 2.5 years ago when it was £1925 (now @ £2360). Thats over 20% increases!

    A webpic, but here's my beauty! Cost me £5 off eBay.

    I would like a nice watch, but it's too far down the priority list at the moment, so this will suffice.

    Old thread bought back to life.

    Well I still have my Rado Ceramica Multi-Function.

    I wear it every day and it still looks as good as the day I got it (7 years ago)

    Got to love the Ceramic technology that makes it pretty much indestructible.

    Same here mate, my Speedmaster isn't going anywhere quick, it's a symbol of success that I have it, which is worth more than a cash sum alone.

    I keep thinking of selling one of mine to fund other things, but I know i'll just end up wanting to replace it.

    Great thread, good to see so many watch fans here. Here's mine: [​IMG]
    had it about 2 years now, and it's probably due a service. But it keeps excellent time, and I love knowing that it's one thing worth more now than when I bought it.

    I have been on here ages & never even knew this was here

    Anyway, I,ve been into Horology for a while. Bought & sold loads of watches over the years but my passion is Heuer watches as they are mainly linked with racing heritage.

    I have a rare Lemania Heuer Audi sport watch & alongside a rare French made Heuer 844 Monnin

    [​IMG]

    Then a couple of Autavias

    [​IMG]

    A rare Heuer oversize diver with an Olive dial

    [​IMG]

    A Tag 1000M diver

    [​IMG]

    A couple of Tag prototypes which were going to be named the "Tag Edge"

    [​IMG]

    An oversize full lume Heuer diver

    I have a few other projects on the go & am always flipping bits and bobs...

    wow you really are into it.

    could you tell me the whole 'tag heuer' and 'heuer' thing, whats the differences etc, im interested?

    IF i had the money, i would be silly with watches, its the whole engineering of it and the attention to detail that i LOVE, same reason for my passion for cars and all things engineering.

    here are my 2:

    Nixon super rover SS white:
    [​IMG]
    if i could i would have the entire nixon range, great looking and uniquely styled modern watches. love them all.

    Hugo boss rose gold chrono (no special name unfortunately):
    [​IMG]
    this is my 'posh' one, events, evening do's etc
    very comfy, and always gets compliments
