Hello all.
I have come to learn that there is alot of shared hobbies and interests among us, and with that I was wondering if there were any shave enthusiasts who also share a love for cars, watches, or both.  If so please share with us.  

As for myself I daily drive a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, and my current wrist watch collection includes a maratac mid pilot and a borealis sea hawk(in the mail).

Love the watch.  

Most of mine are just inexpensive and fun.  The one in the photo is a dirt cheap knock-off of a Patek Philippe.  There is a glaring mistake on it that I didn't even notice until after I had worn it a few times.  Instead of disappointing me, the mistake just made the watch that much more endearing.  Every time I wear it, it makes me smile.  Can you spot the mistake?

Freddy. Glad to see a fellow watch enthusiast. The most glaring mistake to me is the misplacement of the 10 and 11 o clock markers. Thanks for the compliment on the watch. I too keep my watch purchases to the affordable realm.

That's it. Smile Isn't it amazing about what we assume because of the way we have trained ourselves? As I say, I didn't notice it when I purchased it nor when I first started wearing it.

I hope others will post photos of their watches.

Had you not asked me what was wrong I probably wouldn't have caught it and agreed surely there has to be more watch guys in here.

I'm a big antique car enthusiast. Living in Arkansas, there is wide variety of antique cars on the road. I wish had my 61 T-Bird or my 66 Mustang still.

My dad liked watches. I have inherit his watches. I have an Omega watch give him for Christmas one year. Someday I will get them repaired. The Calibre, the Timex (next to it), the Citizen are working.

I have a few wrist watches but really like pocket watches - here are a few of my favorites. With care and maintenance these 120+ year old watches work like they day they were built.

Very lovely collection. I love pocket watches. I don't own as many, but I have a couple that I use when my wife and I attend one her company "Black Tie" dinners. I used them with my tux as I always wear a vest. People are always curious about the hanging chainBig Grin

Thank you. I have a few chains and will wear them with a vest I wear in the winter.  I buy a lot of the watches as 'not running' and then take them apart, clean, oil and reassemble which is what most of them need.  A few will need main springs which is easy enough to fix but a few will need something that I am not set up for like a jewel replacement or a hair spring replacement but knew some watchmakers that can do the work if need be and a guy that makes custom size crystals for them. It is kind of like bringing an old straight razor back to life and using it again knowing that a piece of history has been saved.

I have a watch in my car. Does that count?
