I have always been a huge fan of men wristwatches, although I’m not an expert about their mechanics or anything like that. I just like them, especially if they have weight and over sized but delicately designed case. So far I own a sport watch only as I’m still on the lookout for a Dress Watch of some kind, whether it’s a vintage or a modern one. Still planning to begin saving for a serious, delicately designed, trustworthy dress watch. Brands I'm thinking of Omega, Breitling, Certina, Tissot, Tag Heuer and other these kind of brand. For the time being let me share with you some photos of my Armani chronograph sport watch (type: AR-5817). I have gotten this from my girlfriend’s parents as a gift for my college graduation in December of 2009. Since then it’s working properly while I’m trying to care and protect it as much as I can.

Daniel C. Powell replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I wear watches because I always have, its a part of me as much as wearing shoes or my cornicello. It's something I just do. I also wear it simply because I refuse to become dependent n a cell phone or something similar."
