I've posted it in the other watches threads but I finally have High Resolution pics... The drilled rotor and the caliper had me hooked

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Anyone have any experiences good or bad with the Movado 800 series? I'm looking for a SS watch I can wear daily. Budget up to $1000.

would you consider a Hamilton? I would recommend them over Movado, I've owned both brands

I find the Movados can be a bit fragile. Also, 1000$ is getting to be on the high price point for a battery watch. If you can find a Movado for less, I would put it under consideration, but 1k is a lot for their quality.

Thanks for the feedback. I actually have a $200 credit for Jared that I need to use by the end of next month. I saw on their website that they do have Hamilton and I do like some of their watches. Which model Hamilton do you have?

I would like to get a Tag but know my fiance will throw a shit-fit with the wedding only a few months away.

no problem, I've put in stupid amounts of hours researching watches, so it's good to know all the information I injested is being put to some use....

I have the Hamilton Jazzmaster Lord Hamilton
http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=h...9QEwBA&dur=366

some good news for you/wife to be. this is one of the most expensive hamiltons and it comes in under 2000 (1500-1700ish) and it has the same internal parts as many of the Tag watches, as well as many Omegas too.

if you get an automatic hamilton without the chronograph movement, you'll be looking closer to 1000$ for what in my opinion is a higher quality watch then a Movado.

But it also all depends if you are looking for automatic or manual watches as well, because the hamiltons can go a lot cheaper with a battery.

That is definitely a sharp watch. I will have to look and see if they have that model at the store.

Jazzmaster? Bah. If you go Hamilton get a Ventura. I want one bad. (Of course I'm the guy with the Studebaker coupe so you know I'm a sucker for art deco)

spotted a hydroquest chrono in a pawn shop today, but way overpriced. Fortunately for me. Tempted to go back and offer them a reasonable price for it but probably a bad idea what with being unemployed in a week and all. The1, are you considering selling a Jazzmaster or Ventura? If the latter, I'm interested... it's shortlisted for me even though I'm a total automatic snob.

Funny thing is I strolled into the pawn shop really looking for a receiver (they didn't have one that was worth a crap) and ended up looking at watches... the guy working there was actually admiring my Seiko 009 on a NATO strap while I was looking at a Longines *shrug* go figure. Guess you really don't have to spend lots of money to make a good impression.

Well it's finally here! Took a bit of adjusting, but that's a piece of cake with the oyster bracelet.

Super bummed. Today I crashed on my motorcycle, got pretty banged up, but the worst part is I was wearing my Submariner, and it got tatered in the crash.

Bummer

I must admit, I never wear my Sub when riding the Harley.

I went for the GMT Master II over the submariner (high school graduation gift). Everyone and their dad had a submariner... so I wanted something different. I also don't dive, but I do travel and I actually use the GMT functions on my watch.

Would have LOVED a daytona (being the "driver's watch" but the base models were obviously above my price range at this point).







Although, my luxury time piece, which I still wear from time to time was the Tag Heuer Link Automatic Chronograph. Love the chronograph feature and use it when I wear the watch, and I love the blue face:
