I did a search and it didn't come up, which is sort of surprising...

Anyways, do you wear a watch? Post yours uppppp.

I interchange between the two. I wore the Relic a lot in high school, but now I wear the Movado all the time. Both were gifts because I'm too much of a cheap-ass to buy my own watch, lol.

My boy always tells me that a real man has a nice time piece. Not the cheap shit either. I wanna get a tag soon.

lol my mom always says:

You judge a woman by her bag and her shoes,
You judge a man by the watch he wears.
Joanne
My cellphone camera is being crappy and won't focus on the watch, so no actual picture of my watch! ><




I like my old one a lot more, though. It was also Fossil, and had a black leather strap. I lost it at summer camp. sad.gif

I never wear anything but my watch on mine. I hate not knowing what time it is. I don't understand how people can bear to pull out their cell phones/etc. whenever they need to check the time, or even worse, ask other people what time it is all the time. It's not that freaking hard to get your own damn watch.

taking your phone out isn't that hard.

when you have both of your hands occupied, it's nice to have something on your wrist that's quick to look at instead of having to rummage through your pocket

at least that's what happens to me when I'm always out taking photos

More efficient to just look at your wrist and know what time it is. Digging around for your phone is annoying.

I have a sexy fossil watch. I have to get some links taken out of it though.

This baby is valued at 200$.
butre
Don't like that blue face.

^i like your watches

haven't really looked at watches .. for myself lately. i don't think i'm really the sort to wear them as i'm kind of rough and tumbling around everywhere anyway.

guys, what brands of watches appeal to you the most? if you sort by brands, anyway. i'm thinking about getting the boyfriend a watch in the near future, just kind of as an out of nowhere gift.

Maccabee
I honestly dont care about brands. Its just how it looks. Does he usually wear a watch> Because if he uses his phone to chwck the time, like me, then he would only want a stylish watch. My watch adoesnt even have numbers but it looks cool. It really depends on the guy. It seems like dads or people who are high class like metal watches, abercombie, american eagle kind of guys like brown leather watches and the list goes on.
butre
I think I've owned like 3 watches in my life that didn't have a metal band.

i love fossil watches. i've been giving them as gifts for the last couple of years. i have yet to get one for myself. they're one of the few items i don't mind spending a good chunk of money on.

You can't go wrong with Movado wink.gif Plus, they're much more affordable than Gucci, Cartier, and Tag Heuer watches. It depends on what your budget is?

That's complete BS. Stop generalizing people. My sister's boyfriend has a "brown leather" watch, but it's Diesel (valued at ~$350). And he's definitely NOT the kind of guy who wears A&F or AE. His favorite brand is probably Kenneth Cole. I've seen my friends who wear A&F, Hollister, AE, etc. (whatever preppy brands you want to list) also wear "metal" watches.

Sorry. Your right. I was just thinking of all the kind of abercombie and american eagle guys I know. Cause that is all they wear.

LOL at "affordable" :(

Cheapest watch they sell in the Movado store is $500 and most are $1k+

-_-

but yeah, true. i guess if you compare it with the other "make you go broke unless you're a wealthy motherf*cker" brandnames it's not so bad. I went into Tiffany's and the starting price is $2k T_T

That's why I can't buy one for myself. I'll just end up breaking it shortly after wearing it. cry.gif But I'll buy it for the Tonticles. tongue.gif



jcp - it's just a matter of preference, is what I'm trying to say.
batman
^ lol idk, movado watches are pretty sturdy, but if you lose it then you're shit out of luck :(

my sister lost hers -_-

Though I want to change the strap.
