One of my other loves is Swiss watches. I happen to wear and retail ORIS watches www.friendsoforis.com but that is beside the point.

The only priceless watch in my collection. My Mom told me if I graduated college w a 4.0 GPA she would buy me whatever watch I wanted for graduation. It proved to be good motivation and my Dad almost

New early 40th birthday gift for myself. Omega Seamaster Diver 300  

Lange 1 in rose gold. Took a little while to arrive.

I like cool watches too! I used to wear a Rolex Explorer II, but it was too heavy and bulky (like handcuffs) and I didn't like that selfwinding feature because the watch would stop running if you don't either wear it or shake it every couple of days. It also wasn't very accurate.

I recently got a two-tone Breitling Aerospace and I really like it.

One of my many weaknesses are good timepieces. On my last holiday, ended up in Barbados where there were some good selections available. I bought myself a nice Longines watch, only to find out my (champion) uncle who had left for home in Vancouver had bought me a Tissot touch screen watch!:ok:

Suffice to say if if I was on Rob or Ken's earning bracket I might be tempted to buy something else (Piaget was another nice option) but pretty happy with the ones I've got.

If I had a nice watch I'd lose the thing.

I also had a Sea Dweller a long time ago, very cool watch. I remember it had this little helium escape valve on the side of the case, and was really thick and bulky. The jeweler told me this model didn't come with a magnifier over the date because it was made to go so deep under water that it would compromise the integrity of the crystal.
