Some lovely time pieces here. Nice to see we share interests other than cars. I might post some photos up soon.

I usually wear an Omega Seamaster planet ocean.

I drive nice cars and I wear nice watches.

I don't wear any watch that costs as much as my car, nor can I see that ever happening with me.

Depending on a number of things I may wear a Rolex Milgauss or Submariner, Omega Constellation, a Tag something I don't know type, I know it's just a basic automatic sport watch, Breguet Marine (blue), Audemars Piguet Jules Audemar (it's just a simple, clean dressy watch), or a Bell and Ross military watch.

What car I drive isn't a function of what watch I'm wearing, or vice versa. You could find me wearing any of these watches in my 3er, 5er or even when I'm in a taxi.

I love watches. I'm slowly trying to collect them. I currently have 2 Movados and a Burberry time piece. Slowly I'm going to get a few others. The Burberry one probably goes best with the car. Looks great on a dark night when all you see is the road, the bmw interior lights, and the watch

Nice collection Matthew!

There's a few spaces to fill in that big old box of yours

Everyone's posted some stunning watches. Apologies for not mentioning everyone, just a few that I noticed :-)

James - I think that Chopard is a lovely watch.

Marlie - wow, a true classic.

Ed - your collection is really nice and I haven't seen an Omega with that strap recently.

Phil - nice planet ocean :-D

mj - nice collection and lovely photos.

Westy - really like the photo of the first Omega.

Phantom, nice boat. Is your watch rotator mains powered ?

I haven't got around to using a rotator I bought yet because I can't figure out how to route wires where I store my watches.

Scooba - Hehe, although a different kind, here's my grey boat ...

I Love my U-Boat, other then it is a little big for every day use being 53mm.
The rotator just plugs into the wall. I have it on a shelf in my main living area, as I never found somewhere to put it. my wife and parents got me the watch for my 30th B-day and for Xmass my dad got me the winder when he was really sick and it was the last gift he got me before he passed

Here's mine, the Superocean never comes off to be fair, I love it. I wish the Franck Muller was genuine though






This is next on the list (42mm):




Almost forgot, the car, a multicoloured 325d Msport

Same here - I was given a Rolex when I left my last job, but it just sits in its box. It's probably worth a few bob, especially as it has a Middle Eastern Head-of-State's crest on the face, but I can't bring myself to sell it - too many fond memories of a past life. I wear it very occasionally, but not for long - it's just too heavy and uncomfortable.
