or this:

I'm an absolute sucker for the Breitling brand, purely due to the inherent wank factor.. but I love the look of the Hamilton, not to mention the obscenely cheap price (relative to the Breitling).. I can find no negative feedback on the Hamilton's.. should I just get the Hamilton and pocket the change?

Ignoring price as a factor, I would go for the Breitling, but then again, I'm a fanboy.

Great choice! That Aquaracer is a classic simple and easy to read design; and very nice in the looks department too. I am a fan of Tag Heuer watches. They sometimes get a bagging (don't really know why) but they are the most popular 'luxury' watch on the Australian market.

The black Aquaracer is a cool design. Nice choice Mo3! That would be my pick out of the Tag selection.

heres something different - some photos of my Swiss made Ventura V-Tech Delta watch.

its awesome, has sapphire crystal & the stainless steel is heat treated to be 4+ times harder than normal stainless steel - its a real quality watch.

(the seiko is what i wear in the garden/working on the car)

cheers

No need to be 'sorry' - I was only making an observation.... its all good :-)

I see most other watches are all Rolex and such... like $5K min... etc

no worries, Ventura do make watches in that price bracket, mainly the titanox (titanium spec) & kinetic type.

I'm in to collecting watches but not really a showy person. My favourite is a red gold hublot but I stick to my ghetto gshock most days.

Anyone have one of these? Got a 2 watch model from this guy last year for both my mechs and works great!
Either watch always ready to go when I need it. They're pretty silent as well. I keep it on my bedside table.
