A few of my favorite timepieces from my ever growing collection. In order of what gets the most wrist time. I have about 30 watches total which range from el cheapo Casio G-Shocks, Invicta, Pulsar, Seiko Kinetic, up through my automatics Tag Heurer, Panerai, Rolex, and my favorite, Audemars Piguet.

Enjoy!

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Montauk Highway w/ custom Particolare Capolavoro Black Hornback Crocodile strap



Panerai 312 w/ custom Heroic18 Black Alligator strap



Rolex Milgauss



Rolex Daytona two tone w/ diamond markers

I actually like the Rolex Milgauss. I could see myself wearing it with most everything, other than a DJ (etc).
As mentioned if you are taking the photos they are very nice.

Actually the Milgauss is my go to watch when I want to be a little formal.

I thought this was a joke at first. None of those watches have any business being worn with a suit (except maybe the Milgauss). And the conspicuous inclusion of the BMW logo....too funny.

30 watches is a lot...have you got one of those watch winders that's sized like a jukebox?

The Milgauss is my fav of the options here

The Milgauss does not look that much different from the Rolex Explorer I that is on my wrist right now. Neither has the bubble magnifier that makes the DateJust models so obvious.

I'm still hoping it is. I fear it may not be, though.

I'm inclined to agree. But to each his own, I suppose.

Unfortunately, my watch budget can't really stretch to an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Montauk Highway at the moment. Do you think I could just obtain a lead disk, about the size of a pie plate and an inch or two thick, and strap it to my wrist? What if I painted some sub-dials on it first? :)

'Course, I'd still have to have my tailor let out the left cuffs on all of my dress shirts.

Is there a point to wear a watch at all? :) You have it on your mobile, laptop, car dashboard, TV, hear updates from the radio... Personally not against watches though :)

Most days, I spend a fair number of my waking hours not working at my computer, driving my car, watching tv, or listening to the radio. (Nor are tv and radio time updates continuous.) Yet, I might still want to know what time it is. Glancing at my wrist is easier and less obtrusive a way of checking the time, than whipping out a cell phone would be.

Besides, a wedding ring and a wristwatch are about the only pieces of jewelry which it is entirely unobjectionable for a man to wear on nearly any occasion. As I'm unmarried, that means my wristwatch is all I've got. :)

(Wearing a vintage Omega Seamaster, at the moment. From back when they were still more like dress watches, than diving/sport watches.)

I actually didn't wear a watch for over 5 years when I got out of the service. I was at home (plenty of clocks around), in the car (clock on radio), or at work (clock on computer). It was kind of liberating for the most part. I also didn't carry a cell phone (either at work or at home). It wasn't until I started running again that I bought another watch, and started wearing it regularly. I do enjoy them.

If you put them side by side, you'll see the obvious thickness from the Milgauss's faraday cage. Plus, the orange lightning bolt is a little more dramatic than the Explorer's second hand.

You'd think, right? I have an anniversary milgauss (green crystal, and the 3/6/9 markers are orange) that's out for service, the strap on my air king broke, and the fiancée wears my datejust; I've been without a watch for four days and I'm HATING it. Yes, it is much easier to wear a watch than to pull the cell phone out.

Cufflinks are also part of typical male jewellery :) And then a nice phone (almost a must in modern world :)), glasses, lighter, pen, money clip, iPad... :)
Perhaps, Seiko is correct in its advertisement - it's your watch that tells most about who you are. Nevertheless, while I really like my watch (had a few in the past, now only one), I wear it only during weekends - I have enough other points of interest in my clothing :)
