    Guilty here, although I've got to do a lot of saving get hold of a mechanical/automatic. That being said, your watch ticks a lot of boxes, very nice. I love the Chronograph style (dial geek!:D) but just have a couple of Swatch chronos which do the trick.

    The Financial Review a couple of weeks ago had a wristwatch edition with all the top shelf brands (IWC, GP, JLC, PP and may others I'd never heard of) which had some killer timepieces worth the price of an Audi (and sometimes more).

    haven't worn one for years

    I use the sun (not kidding)
    or my car or phone

    but yes I love the technology and used to collect clocks
    and have quite a fetish for Astrolabes

    There are some reasonably affordable mechanical watches around. Check out Archimede from germany. A nice product that can be had for around the $5-600 mark.

    Love my watch, could not live without it no way. (Plus there's an embarrassing tan line underneath anyway on my arm ;)). So yeah, ADIDAS Sports Watch (have one in blue and another in black). Love em to death, had them for 8 years now.

    That's mine.

    Had 2-3 cheaper watches.

    Went to Vegas last year, got sick, so didn't spend the $1,000 I had budgeted on gambling and strippers.

    Saw that watch, modern version of the watch Elvis wore in Blue Hawaii, special anniversary limited edition.

    I ****ing love it. Took me a while to get used to it, to be honest, and the black was different, but now it gives me a raging boner everytime i check the time.

    I like watches and have no idea why some gen y males consider wearing a watch to be 'poofy' - it's just a damn watch, both genders wear, this 'stigma' is only something I've seen on big footy.

    I prefer a simple look myself

    Nice Longines. Are you serious? Do some guys consider wearing a watch poofy? I have never heard of that before.

    It's most likely just a small number of bogan children on this site that have that opinion. Take what you read with a grain of salt.

    Nice to see you guys wearing some simple watches that don't come with 1000s of features, well done.

    My Pop bought it second hand and gave it to me for my 18th.'Nothing classier than a good watch. He also gave me a pocketwatch that his father got for his 21st, over 100 years old.

    Keep that one in the car to wear whenever I go for a surf.

    Usually wear el cheapo replicas around most of the time.
