    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!

    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.

    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

    A Tag 1000M diver

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

    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
