I don't know if anyone else is a fan, but the variety of amazingly creative designs that you can buy for reasonable money is bigger than ever, while the 'collectible' market is also booming.

 

Given the rise of the mobile phone, tablet, etc., a watch is no longer really a necessity, but it can be a pleasure. You can look at them as costume jewellery or an heirloom/investment - I fall into the former camp. All my watches are at the cheaper-to-reasonable end of the budget, but what are your favourites?

 

While I am a fan of Skagen's ultra-slim designs, and also own a Daniel Wellington with NATO strap, my latest purchase is in a German Aero style. Chunky and old-fashioned, despite it containing a simple oriental quartz movement. Here's a pic - what have you got?

I like watches but would struggle to name a brand apart from Sekonda or Timex maybe . I have always worn a watch though.

I have a Raymond Weil watch which is nice but being an automatic movement is prone to losing time over a week or so which given the purchase price is a little disappointing. I looked at the cost of having it serviced but basically it would have to go back to Switzerland for that to be done.

 

A friend has a Skagen watch which I thought it was very nice, his wife is Danish and she got it him as a wedding present.

 

I do like watches, no idea why.

I bought a "pebble" watch after it was successfully launched through Kickstarter and its a great bit of kit.

 

Now I don't take out my phone from my pocket to check the time, but I check my watch to see if its worth taking my phone out of my pocket to answer it!  And of course occasionally I use it to check the time.................!!!

Do they have kids?  Are they any good with a rugby ball?  What are their contact details? :D

No kids I am afraid, but if they do make any announcements I'll be sure to let you know.

Had mine about 15 years now and still love it. I think the black/gold ones are a bit vulgar looking but the black/stainless steel ones are class!

Just Googled Rado watches, and I'd agree. There are some nice designs there. Not too ostentatious.
