Guitars > Watches

In the sense of men's accessories, I think it's far more obnoxious to have an unused guitar for decoration. "Yeah I've been meaning to learn, I marked some youtube tutorials to watch..."

Any unnecessary and/or unused artifact inspires derision from acquaintances and fellow civilized humans... except american NEO-GEO home cartridges.

I agree.

I have 6. I only don't play one, because it was a gift I gave to my brother in law who died, and I was gifted it back by the family. Truth be told it's not a high quality guitar, so I don't play it. But I play the rest of them, even my shitty bass guitar lol.

I splurged once on a low tier swiss mechanical watch (a zeno) back in 2012(?), and I only wear it at weddings or formal events.

It scratched the itch and I'll probably never fuck around with expensive watches ever again.

I have a Rangeman G•Shock I haven’t seen anywhere else but on my wrist. Struck when the iron was hot, and got lucky...used onboard cruise credit to get it.

My Swatch in Curaçao blue, that I got on Curaçao, is my daily driver.

Would love an old Senna for a formal night jawn; however, the MotoGP Tissots are in the running also.

Casio Rangeman is a good find. There's some rabid Gshock fan's, so you could probably sell that for MSRP right now.

I have like 12 watches i've kept throughout my life...I dont think i ever replaced a battery on any one of them. Is it weird that i wear it on special occasions even though they dont work.

Seriously...replace the battery. Don't ya feel like a total shit for brains wearing a dead watch.....just wear a bracelet for fuck sakes.

So I’ve been informing myself a bit more, and I think the style I’m looking for is either a sporty dress watch or a dressy sport watch. Divers and other bulkier or more complicated watches are bit more than I want. I think the Seiko Presage SRPC79J1 with a steel band is kinda the look and feature set I’m going for and within my price range. Anyone have one of these?

Edit: I think it looks like a much more budget friendly Datejust, which if I had the money looks really sharp.

I'm not a big tymer. I've started wearing a Timex indiglo watch again. I used to wear them when I was younger but stopped because I found them uncomfortable. I get the utility of cell phones, but I'm not attached to the hip with mine. I like the functionally of having a watch, haven't hopped on the smart watch train though.

I have a few watches.

I have a Rotary which is a lovely watch but is only used as a dress watch as its to expensive to wear for general use.

I have a Seiko Chrono watch which I got as a gift from my previous employer which I cant rate highly enough, But I dont wear it to work as its likely to get damaged.

Then I have my every day watch which is a Casio wave ceptor digital watch.
Works great, Auto adjusts itself for perfect accuracy and is cheap as chips so I dont care if it gets knocked about (and it does).
But it also looks stylish for a digital watch so win win.

I did have a Seiko 5 before I got the Casio which is a automatic but it only lasted 6 months before it started loosing time to a noticeable degree.

I suspect that was due to my work more than anything but all autos loose or gain time to some degree anyway.
Other than that it was a really nice watch and again cheap.

And just a heads up, You can wear a metal strap watch with anything. You can dress down or up with it, its a jake of all trades. Leather straps are for dressing up.

leather straps hurt less than the metal ones way better all arounders, metal is for Special occasions.

Mostly wear G-Shocks, because I like looking like an old man with teenage taste. Really though I love Casio watches, they seem to be mostly indestructible and look decent enough. I would really like to have a Casio Oceanus, or maybe a Phoibos Dive watch when I have some extra disposable income. Seiko is also a favorite, and I really liked the mini tuna I used to own. I love watches but I’ve only got two wrists so I only have/need a few.

As soon as Apple release a watch that can accurately monitor my blood sugar without stabbing my fucking finger several times a day, I’ll throw cash at them. Until then I’ll stick with me Gucci.

Do those continuous monitors have needles in them? Or do that have some sort of laser sensor thing?

Those sticky patches have a small filament that inserts under the skin to do the sensing, which is quite irritating. And it’s not continuous monitoring, you have to scan the patch with a device.

I want something that’s completely non-invasive as I’m pretty fed up with stabbing myself several times a day in different places.
