Ha ha - awesome! I'll add my cheapies after I take a picture of 'em, though me thinks I'll be sorely outclassed in this thread...

But I share the disease, I'd have dozens if I could afford 'em. I'm more of an analog kinda' dude - so I gravitate towards the classics (divers/chronograph) look. Not too into digital anymore... I'm a cheap watch whore too digging Casio watches for the reliability and durability.

Stock photos of my very limited current selection:

Casio Men's Marine Ana-Digi Divers Watch #AMW320R-1EV (I think it is nearing end of life... doing weird time gains/losses on analog)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...KL._SS500_.jpg

Casio Men's G-Shock Solar Powered Digital Sports Watch #G2310-1V (indestructible, survives everything it seems...)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...GL._SS500_.jpg

Timex - I have an older version similar to this (non-Indiglo) that my watch smith adores. He calls it a true diamond in the rough - excellent movement and construction... Who'd thunk it? Timex?
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...dL._SS500_.jpg

Want to buy:

Citizen Eco-Drive Men's Chronograph Stainless Watch #AT0550-03E
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...4L._SS500_.jpg

CASIO G-Shock Mens 5 Motor All Analog Chronograph Watch G1000-1A
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...nL._SS500_.jpg

Casio Men's Sea Analog Illuminator Dual LED Watch #MDV102-1AV
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...BL._SS500_.jpg

Luminox Men's 700 Series Silver Series Blue Watch #703 (dead sexy)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...LL._SS500_.jpg

TAG Heuer Men's Carrera Chronograph Leather Watch #CV2010.FC6205 (probably the only Carrera I'll ever own... :rolleyes:)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...QL._SS500_.jpg

I am reserving my spot...will post up actual pics next week of each watch. :)


edit: My watches. Can't seem to find all of them, but I did locate 8, I think I am missing 3-4 more, but not sure where they are, they have been packed away for years...

Nixon for the mtfw, I'm a poor man but if funds were there I'd have everyone watch.

I used to be a watch whore. Now I'm down to two:

G Shock Classic:

And a really nice Eddie Bauer watch that my wife got for me.

trip024 07-18-2008 03:26 AM

Ive been fixated on this watch for awhile now. This will definitely be my next watch purchase.
