What watches do you like, what is your daily wear?

I am an Omega fan.
Daily is a very old Seiko circa 1976 1977.
Have a few watches I want to say goodbye to.

Couple of watches that don’t come out too lol.

Been wearing a Seiko diver for a couple years now. One of these days I’ll upgrade. Really like the Omega Planet Ocean watches and a nice Rolex never gets old.

When I was working I was a Breitling fan, had a titanium and gold Aerospace for dress, and a New Pluton for daily, both bought while working down island in Caribbean boating circuit. Now that I've retired I've sold the Aerospace and rarely wear the New Pluton. I now have three different Wenger's, one of which is a limited edition that I bought directly from dealer in Switzerland, ( I was living in NW Italy and was regularly in Swiss to ski ). I also have a relatively inexpensive but cool Caterpillar watch that my last boss bought for me one day while we were cruising ( I run his boat ) in Greece a couple of years ago.
I'll tell you what rule we applied sir.
We applied rule 303.
We caught them and we shot them under rule 303!

First watch was a basic timex.
In around 1965 bought a Zodiac Sea Wolf in a PX.
Wore it for 30 years. Wars, jumps, scuba diving.
Never took it off.

Forward to 1982 wife thinks I need a new watch. Buys me a Rolex Submariner.
James Bond time. Wore that to 2003. Sold it and bought wifey a Rolex.

Did wear a watch until. One day I'm searchiong for something in my desk drawer.
There's the Zodiac. Do a little research of what it's worth and what it would cost to get running.
Found a place in Texas. Beau Coup bucks.
Wife says fix it. Cost is 65 times what I think I originally paid.

Repair guy tells me it's no longer just a watch.
It's a "Vintage Time Piece"

Wife says fix it.

It's now planted on my wrist.
Someday I'll figure out how to post pictures on here

Very Cool... Love seeing all these watches!

My everyday was a Tissot PRS516 (Now for sale in the BST) as i have upgraded to a 2020 Rolex Air King. Air King was something different that you dont see everyday.
