    You can get watch storage units/boxes for self winding watches that move so they keep the watches running. Not all that expensive and less $$$ than repairs.

    yea..i wasnt smart enough to have an electrical outlet installed in my safes.

    for the record. setting the time on a rolex datejust sucks. letting that thing stop is a crime.

    That's unfortunate however they do make battery operated models or better yet just schedule the watch for all perils on your homeowners for about $20 a year and stop worrying about it. I don't have any more difficulty setting the time on a Datejust than any other Rolex. I've had one stop a few times. Just shake it or wind it manually and then you are back on track.
    Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?

    I received a few new ones this weekend:

    1998 Explorer II

    1972 Datejust with linen dial (the texture doesn't show up in the photo)

    Fortis Cosmonaut

    I also have a 1969 pre-moon Speedy coming to me. It's being conservatively restored, right now, but is just about done.

    When I turned 30 my parents wanted to give me some nice present and they came up with an idea of good quality watch and knowing how picky I am on my stuff, they gave me some money and so I had not other way round than look at high quality watches. I got quickly surprised how much these lovely buggers cost After quite some search Oris Chronoris caught my eye and that is what I got. Today - 5 years later - I still wore it daily (with exception when doing sport or some harder manual work). Yes - Seamester would be lovely, but I would not be able to justify 4x the already high price I payed for the Chronoris.

    P.S. Those cool leather gloves are as close as I ever got to actually buying a motorbike (the 'small' HD Sportster would be my choice). I still have the gloves ... and the dream

    Sad to say, but as an electrician, no metal on my hands or wrists. Otherwise I would buy this http://www.luminox.com/watches/sea/?watch=A.8153.RP

    I just can't justify buying it if I will only wear it occasionally.

    Nice Luminox.

    I don't wear my watches nearly often enough. When I have the opportunity, I go for the Omega Seamaster. White dial over stainless with 18K bezel. I also enjoy a Bulova Precisionist and Hamilton Jazzmaster.

    When I count how many "shigs" are in my watch box, I wonder if I shouldn't have stopped after the first though.

    Couple years ago bought a Citizen Eco-Drive dress watch leather band. My original Titanium Eco -Drive finally quit working after 13+ years. Water tight to the end, never thought it would last this long. Will never go back to a battery watch.

    I like watches but as a hobby it's a bit much monetarily. Im happy with one watch. Now pens, or camera lenses, I don't think so. But I can live with one watch. Mine currently happens to be this one:
