Guns n' Watches

So, if you are like me, you have a thing for guns and watches. I got this idea from a cycling forum. Cycling used to be my other major passion, but I don't get to ride much any more. On the cycling forum I used to frequent they had a thread called "Roadies and Watches" that was about 100 pages long. That thread alone cost me about $8000 in watch purchases. I went from 2 watches to over 20 in a few short years. Anyway, over on my favorite watch forum, they strictly prohibit gun images. Sad. So, being a new guy on the Kimber forum I thought maybe we could all share our favorite watches and maybe even some watches with guns pictures. Here are some of my favorite watches from my collection.

Gotta start with my custom 1911 Seiko SKX. Replaced the dial and hands with a sweet 1911 them.

I have a few friends with the watch fetish...I haven't worn one since issued my first pager that a clock in it...about 1991. The cell phone is my watch now. probably for the better. Frees up money for guns, cars, reloading components, etc.

True. I figure i spent over $4000 In 2017 alone on watches. I;be flipped almost my entire collection this year. I'm taking a break from them because I'm pretty happy with my current batch. I think in 2018 I am going to focus more on my guns...starting with my Stainless II which I'm waiting to come in. That Benelli Nova Tactical is singing to me.

Love the GShock. Just got one just like it, but with orange on the dial. I think a GShock should be mandatory for all gun owners.

My favorite everyday watch is my Tag Heuer two tone link, but the band broke and it costs a fortune to replace, but guess I will have to bite that bullet. Also have beautiful Concord dress watch with diamond face. Right now my everyday watch is black Apple watch, which I like a lot. My husband is the one with the watch passion, so I get mine as gifts from him!

The TAG Carrera Calibre 5 in blue is my grail watch right now. You could get a nice aftermarket band for your TAG for around $100 and nobody would know. You dont have get OEM bracelets.
