I carry a pocket watch and a Buck 110 auto, in a sheath on my belt.

I have a lot of watches and knives, so it could be anything, but I usually carry a Benchmade of some sort. This week is a Benchmade 940 and a Casio Pro-Trek.

I rotate between about 6 straps for my Timex Expedition as the primary work watch. I got a handful of other watches. One for the boat, a dressier two tone Baume and Mercier Clifton, and some other mechanicals, solars and quartzes. Maybe around 7-8 total.
Knives are mostly a leather man at work, plus a CRKT Krommer assisted opening, at home that same knife or a Russel folder that’s all steel including the handle. When cutting hay baling twine, I use my serrated Cutco folder.

Casio Illuminator here. I usually go through 1 or 2 every year cutting trees so $20 is my budget.

I always have my Leatherman on my belt. I never realized how often I used it until I forgot it at home a couple times.

I am Jonesing for a Grand Seiko Lake Suwa. I will carry my William Henry pocket knife.

When I am working on stuff mechanically or yard work I like to wear a GShock and carry my Gerber pocket knife.




You Submariner whores!

(Just kidding).

😂😂😊😊

That is no joke. I feel like I have been forked when I got the service estimate on mine last week. Normal service plus the face and hands need to be replaced. $1,600 But at least it was the first service on it for 20 years. 20 more before the next based on how I seem to wear it.




Wait til you lose one or have one stolen..

That's a GMT, not a Submariner

It almost got expensive while we were walking around. I am a sslut for a beautiful watch dial. They had a gorgeous Patek Philippe womens Caltrava blue dial. We both fell in love with it, but I told her I guessed it would be $40,000. I was close it was $37,000. Too much for us.

One of my favorite watches is my Seiko Presage Cocktail time with a light blue champagne dial. It was $400 and one of the most gorgeous watches I have seen in my opinion especially for the price.

Rolex makes about 1m watches a year with no desire to increase production, demand is about 10x production, probably more. The "sport" watches are most in demand, the GMT, Submariner, Explorer, Milguass, AirKing, Daytona and others. Rolex gold watches are mostly available. I've worn one of four models for 40 years, the last one in 2019 was the only one that was difficult to acquire. Now they are almost impossible for the typical consumer.

IMHO, find watches begin and end with an automatic movement, no battery, just wear and wind occasionally. This can include a $300 Seiko or a $10k Rolex. There's a "fine" watch at about every $1,000 increment, depending on what the wearer wants.

The Ladies Air King cost 50% more than the men’s model, since they’re so much smaller. Two years later Son #2 said he wanted one too but with a different color face. My local jeweler told me I’m his best Rolex customer and asked if I had any more kids, and I said no, that’s the end of our Rolex purchases. That same watch 30+ years later sells for $3099+ used.

My first Rolex was an AirKing, purchased new in 1982 in the Bahamas for $400. That watch today is over $6k. I wore it for fifteen years and traded it for $900.

When I wear a suit I wear a Citizen Eco Drive square face and carry a mini Victorinox so I am never without a knife. Most courthouses will let it slide and if they don't I am not out much when I need to toss one because a bought 25 of them for .50 each about 15 years ago from E-bay that had been TSA confiscated. Causal wear I have a Timex Indiglo and carry the mini Victorinox and a Microtech Ultratech or a Gerber pocket clip Multitool.

Was that 1079 B.C., or 1079 A.D.?? If 1079 B.C., it might have been worn by Spartan King Leonidas at the Battle of Thermopylae.

If so, it would be quite a treasure to a Rolex collector. grin

I'm not reading through this whole thread only to post that I believe that asking a man what kind of watch and pocket knife he wears/carries is very ......................




Impolite.
