Tiiiiiiiime is on my side, yes it is...

....been into watches here lately. I can't even tell you why. I haven't even been wearing watches because of my cell phone but I have bought several here lately. I haven't spent over 300 but I have gone nuts...oh well. Not a good investment at all I know but I can't stop. Ammo would be a better buy but at least I can throw a cheap watch at a bad guy.

When I was five years old, my daddy asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said, "Papa, I wanna watch." The old man thought for a minute, and replied, "Well if it's all right with your momma, it's ok by me."

I have at least 10 watches that have not seen the light of day in probably 10 years... If I had to take a wag, I would guess I have $2K-$3K sitting in my drawer doing nothing..

Once I got my first cell phone I felt no need to wear them any longer...

For the millennials, it's just a 'single function' device.

I am a watch whore, have some nice spendy ones but I really don't wear them often. Just to Vegas and a night on the town! Nice carbon fiber case in the safe!

Been wearing watches my intire adult life, as a soldier and LEO wearing a watch was mandatory. No gadget or cellphone could ever replace them.
I have a few, a couple for the range and hiking, a couple nicer ones for everyday wear and a dress watch. I like solar powered watches have three of them, Citizen and Sieko. The Citizen is also an atomic watch, so no matter where I go in the world it automatically adjust to the proper time.
But I don't own any high dollar watches, all are between $50 and $600. That's about the limit I'm willing to spend on one.

I've worn the same watch every single day since 1987. Been in the snow, freezing weather, heat, 180 feet under the ocean, been shooting with it, and it runs great. I still love to just look at it. A Rolex. Best investment I ever made.

Very nice GM, that's not only a watch that's a solid investment that can be handed down for generations.
