Seiko orange monster

The Seiko probably gets the most wear time.

Decided to pull my BR 01-92 out of the case today. Forgot what a monster this thing is.

If you don't know about it, it's really cool. It's actually an automatic watch, but as you can see it reads like a digital. And they are really tough to find.

Myself? I like JLCs....












I also just picked up this B&R which I love the look of:


I also have an IWC GST, AP ROO, PAM 005k, Graham, Brietling Aerospace (my travel watch), a plethora of Victorinox's, and a bunch of others!

Nice Jaegers!

I was eyeing the Master Compressor Navy Seals Chronograph, and the Grande Reverso Duo. Both are super cool IMO.

I have a Seiko Orange monster that is now my daily wearer. I wore my old Submariner every day, but replaced it with a Panerai PAM 0072, and i"m more worried about scratching it, so I use it for dressing up or special occasions.

I think I'm probably going to get another Submariner though. I really loved that watch.

I think you're winning with the gold though

Jaeger is my favourite/go to brand. They just never seem to make a wrong watch to me.

Been enjoying PAM ownership so far?

I always feel self conscious when I wear my PAM. it's so big.

I have.

I do really like my PAM 0072, not many Panerais have metal bracelets, and the bracelet is really nice. Gives me the option of running a leather strap.

It has a crystal case back, which displays the handsome Zenith El Primero movement nicely.

The PAM 0072 is 40mm, not 44 or 45 or bigger like a lot of Panerais. 40-42mm is the perfect size IMO, not too small, but not gigunta either. It's still pretty thick, and wears better than my Sub did on my wrist. Over 3 months later and I still have the scar/indent on my wrist where the Submariner crown dug in.

My next Rolex will probably be an "M" Sea Dweller. I'm also seriously considering a 42mm Omega Seamaster Professional.

Really? Watches....?

Honestly, I have been a financial advisor for 25 years and performance car junkie... ...as your financial planner I recommend you save your money and stop wasting it on 1 to 3k watches....

If your going to waste your money....at least waste it on mods... thats what I used to do....

Has all your clients took your advise and wasted on car mod vs buying nice watches?

Clearly not a very good financial advisor. You must be starving. Neither is very good but certainly a good watch will hold its value unlike ANY mod will.

I realize that everyone stacks up their priorities differently, but I'd be a bit under-whelmed by a financial advisor in a scratched up Timex.

In the year I owned my Submariner, it went up a few hundred in value compared to what I paid for it.

I bought my Sub C used from dealer last Jan and its already appreciated more than 10%. Not a bad ROI on something I enjoy everyday. I wish I can say the same for my M3 (which I also enjoy daily but going down in value).
