LOL! I know i'm hectic and all, but when it comes to watches i take it very seriously. Most definitely legit, the guy has been with PISA (Onwers of Rolex rights) for many years and is my dads sales connection.

When i look at the Breitling collection, i feel like they are trying too hard. Most of there watches look blinged up. Tag and Omega are sensible for everyday watches, i am more fond of tag though. At least most the james Bonds support Omegas lol.

I used to like TAG watches, but these days I feel they are too bling. In the last few years I just use an inexpensive Japanese watch. Next time I'll probably go for an Omega.

whew, good on you guys, haven't experimented with high end watches yet, currently use a Swatch chrono thats lasted 10 years and still looks cool so far besides some other Tommys, Garmins et al but nothing in the uber luxury watch category yet, not sure I want to take that expensive watch collectors mantle but maybe will get myself just one up ahead. Saw quite a few of you have Omega Constellations/Seamasters here, how do you know which one out of them are worth buying to be collectibles or to be handed down to the next generation? Depends on the movement they use, if are in solid Gold et al? Saw quite a variation in prices

Too many fake Rolex's around. I don't wear my submariner. It's just sitting at home appreciating in value

I like collecting Mark Ecko watches. I like the bling

This is the same reason why I sold my Submariner. Everyone assumed it was a fake and I'm not fully confident those who saw it even believed it was real. It's a shame, really.

It'd be like if people drove around in fake BMWs or debadged their car so people don't know the real model. Oh wait...
