We have several other hobby threads, and someone has asked about watches, so for those of us that are in the watch hobby, let's have a watch thread! Let's see what you have.

I currently have 3, with 2 on the way.

Needless to say, I have a penchant for hand wound movements.

Most days I sport my 1950's 17J Bulova watch. It still runs well.

I'm finding watches intriguing this holiday season. I've gotten two and have a Tissot automatic on the way. This guy has gotten me several "what kind of watch is that" at the office since I procured it last week. The more I research and learn the more I like Bulova and the history of that company.

Those vintage pocket watches are cool just thinking about where they have been. I have two, one was my Great Grandfather and one my Grandfathers, I don't use them often but they are displayed proudly and I treasure them. I think it's awesome that you use pieces like this daily!!

I, too, have a special pocket watch that I display. It was my father's bar mitzvah gift and is 90+ years old.

The Elm City is from the early 1930's and the Westclox Pocket Ben is from 1952! I really like the old pocket watches, simple but sturdy!

Gentlemen - very nice watches. I will have to post some photos. I would love to see a sepetate thread for watches.

I have a Tissot with a quartz movement and wear it diving. My other is a manual wind Bulgarian made - not fancy but works.

I have really come to appreciate mechanical watches including old pocket watches. I have several that I like to carry. I recently had my grandfathers watch fixed. He was going to throw out when I was a kid and asked if I could have it even though it was broken. Now it works like new.

Keep posting pics!

I have 2 watches. One that I've had since '73,

An Omega Speedmaster "Moon watch".

And a Seiko that I was given when I retired.

I don't wear either one today. I don't much care what time it is (I'm retired and it's just "time to do" whatever.) and when I do need the time it's on my cellphone or on the clock on the dashboard.
