I have a few watches from Kenneth Cole, Georgio Armani and Skagen. But I don't collect them I just seem to have aquired them somehow.

I do have a few Swatches from the eighties that are different to say the least!

Maybe a rephrase, I certainly dont consider myself a collector but I certainly do enjoy them. I love the self winding automatics, such a cool sound when they are running

Does anyone know anything about wrist watches? I got an Omega from my grandfather and I heard if it has an airplane on the watch face its worth more than a normal one? Basically I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.

Skagen definitely. If you cna find a Premium Outlet mall, you can find good deals.

Also go to Marshalls or TJ Max..they carry a lot of Kenneth Cole watches too.

Skagen definitely. I like how thin they are and really like the mesh bands.

I have five of them. Not all good deals unfortunately.

I've got a really nice CYMA that I received from the company I worked for at my 20 years of service party.

We Do Collect Cigars, Right? Of Course we collect Watches! I usually treat myself to a new watch every time we go on a cruise. I wear a TAG Tiger Woods Edition for dress and wear one of three for everyday, ( Casio G-Shock Solar Powered "My Most Reliable Watch!", Citizen Eco Drive, and my new fav., just purchased, Stainless "Guess WaterPro".

Bobby, I got the cabinet at Bombay Trading Co. They are in a mall near you.

Ucubed, the top case is a winder box. Not a good one, but it works most of the time. Got it at an on-line discount store. I ordered/paid for a smaller one, but they messed up so they sent me this one instead, I think it was about $130. A good winder is going to cost $$$. I would rather just shake my autos every morning and buy a couple nice boxes of cigars

I have a Breitling Colt GMT that I bought about 2 1/2 years ago, just after my divorce. Think I might have to replace it soon - getting married next summer.

No big collection but I do love and appreciate fine watches. I do have 3 Hoyers (Pre-Tag) that I cherish but one of them no longer works and can't get parts. BOOO TAG, would not invest a large sum in one if they are not going to provide long-term parts availability.
