I have a Casio G-shock and it's a great every day watch I use it for riding motorcycles. Too bad I can't find Atomic G-shocks anymore.

I also have a Bell & Ross BR Model and although the movement is not in house I really dig the vintage look and overall quality.

My other watch is a Bluesy Rolex and for me the look is timeless.

I buy what I like and not worry about what people think. Life is too short buy what you want.

if I'm not mistaken the cheapest G-Shock Atomic time keeping with Solar is $800 ( after a little research I think it's just the Burton solar atomics ). A few years ago atomic and solar was much cheaper. eBay for Atomic G-shocks new old stock but the prices seem high to me.

Saw Bell & Ross came out with a new BR HUD this August and it's very neat and not stupidly priced.

$800? Wow, I bought mine for maybe under $100 on Amazon but that was probably 2-3 years ago I'm sure the prices have gone way up. Right now there's a couple older models for around $100 but it doesn't appear to look as nice as my old one. I really like Atomic G-Shocks it's cool how the time is being updated throughout the day.

That's right, I like the green look too. I'm sure the HUD will come with the rubber and Nato strap for the price. My BR-03 92 Golden Heritage came with two bracelets and basic tool to remove them. However, that new BR05 reminded me of Patek .

I've been wearing a Victorinox Stainless Officer's watch since the E36 M3 came out and they labeled the watches "Swiss Army". Still have it plus a newer Victorinox Chronograph in stainless with a dark blue face. My version of a Rolex Daytona using the same movement as a TAG.

Funny but I don't feel comfortable with a watch that costs more than any new BMW I wouldn't want to own anyway. My first boss in the car biz used to set his Rolex GMT Master by my Swiss Army watch. If I'm going to wear a watch, at least it needs to keep time.

I also have several throw-aways from Timex, Citizen, some heirloom pocket watches, and my Grandfather's Hamilton presentation watch. Plus a BMW Isetta commemorative watch—still in the box—that I've never worn . . . to go with the three Isettas I've not driven in decades!

I wear my Casio DW5600-BB, and my Casio World Time, and couldn’t care less what people think. My SS Submariner/Date, 36mm Datejust, and my 39mm OP, take a back seat to my Casio watches. I know, call me crazy.

Nice Casio collection, but I'm taking the Driver seat on that one... I was only talking about the G-shock I wear on a weekly basis this is what I have in the storage.

Mudman g9000-1v
GA110-1B

I'm debating about Getting the new 2020 41mm OP or the IWC Spitfire.

Hey now!

I love my black stainless steel Apple Watch which has a built in cellular phone. I haven't worn my Rolex GMT(Pepsi) or my Omega Speedmaster for a while because of this. I wish it would sync up with the car's Bluetooth and comes with a built in camera.

I have both a Lange and a Casio. So I’m a geek that works in investments. Not that far off from the truth

Zenith (El Primero):
Secretly wants a Daytona but no retailers will sell him one, and he refuses to pay double (or triple) retail price for a pre-owned one, so he's convinced himself (and has told others) that he actually prefers the Zenith and that it's a better watch because of the 10 beats per second and the date window.

I have 5 Panerai's. I have no clue who Ed Hardy is? and think Sly is a douche. I guess it just means I like Panerai's for their aesthetics.
