Very nice. I really like mechanical watches but those are above my price range. Have a couple with Japanese movements.

Nice! I have a couple of Omegas, but I haven't worn a watch in at least 5 years.

The only two watches I ever really wanted are the first two, because they are historically significant timepieces. The Omega was purchased by my wife on our 11th Anniversary, which is actually 1 year ago to this day (it's my wedding Anniversary today , 12 years) - Kind of fitting, she bought it on our 11th Anniversary, Apollo 11.

The Rolex Explorer I purchased pre-owned from a trusted source, and I saved my ass off for it. It's the only Rolex watch I ever really liked to be honest, It took me almost 30 years to make it happen.

I feel very fortunate to own those two, it was a life goal to own them actually. LOL.

If I could pick one of them it would definitely be the Omega.
Great choice

I daily wear a Glycine Airman, simply because of the GMT function for work and all, the beater is the G-Shock. LOL. Thanks for the Nato Adapter BTW, I pitched that one and bought another about a year ago.

I LOVE G-Shock's

I'll add "proper" pics tomorrow but here's a couple I have saved.

Tomorrow I'll add the watch I inherited from my grandfather and the watch I got for "Employee of the year"

Top is the Maratac I got from Nox and bottom is the Citizen Automatic I just got this spring ( it has settled down to gaining about 5 seconds a day )

Very nice. I have a nice collection myself. I just picked up a Grand Seiko recently. Watch collecting is a very addictive hobby.
