Default What Watch You Got On Today?

Anyone still wearing a watch? I still wear my hand me down Rolex my dad gave me and still love it. Want something else in the rotation.

Movado Vizio Stainless Steel/Carbon. One of my faves.

I still wear a watch every day. It's my only jewelry. I have a few nicer watches but nothing extravagant. Mostly wear a G-Shock or Luminox daily.

I need something lighter. The Rolex is too heavy and uncomfortable. I need the new Rolex Air if there is such a thing.

Maybe look at some titanium watches. They wear very light but have that big watch look.

I tried this one on in Mexico and it may be my next purchase.

Omega Planet Ocean

The titanium version with rubber strap is much lighter than most big watches.

I had the stainless version and man was that heavy. In comparison to my Daytona it was a brick. I think that Rolex 40mm watches are fairly light, but not as light as some the Bvlgari ultra thin model.. but that is a pricy time piece and not worth it in my opinion.

Way back in the day when they came out with the first PO orange dial I was super interested. I tried on the version with the steel strap and thought that watch was a brick. No way I'd wear that very often.

The titanium unit with a rubber band weighs a fraction of that unit.
