What's your timepiece of choice?

After watching several of Coach Glassman's videos and attending a cert, I have found myself very interested in what trainers wear for a wristwatch.

There was several short segments in "Coach" referring to these two brands that Glassman has in his collection:

http://www.rescowatch.com/ (WFS)

http://www.uboatwatch.it/ (WFS)

I'm interested if there is anyone else out there who collects watches? Or even has one they would recommend? What's your style of choice? Must have features?


I'm considering investing in one myself and would appreciate any advice. The two links I've posted are a little out of my price range. I will probably opt for something a little less expensive.

Cheers,
Drew

Timex $20 analog watch, wish I could find one that I like that didn't have a date function on it. Replaced the band once so far. Keeps great time and functional to boot.

Re: What's your timepiece of choice?

My day-to-day watch is a simple one from WalMart. It is easily enough to replace and I don't get upset if I lose it. It has a stopwatch on it.

When I workout, I typically wear a Polar Heart Rate monitor. I have the cheapest one they sell. It was around $65 when I bought it..

Re: What's your timepiece of choice?

i have a casio pathfinder, it's solar, syncs time with a couple nuclear clocks, stop watch, altimeter, countdown timer, shock resistant, waterproof, digital compass, even tells you when weather is deteriorating and once you use it for a bit it works quite well to predict precipitation.

my other watch is a tag hauer that i got as a present and have worn like twice.

Re: What's your timepiece of choice?

I have a timex expedition; an analogue watch with a canvas strap. They live up to the timex slogan... My first one lasted 4-5 years of abuse. It was taken whitewater rafting, rock climbing, skiing, you name it, and finally died after I put it through the washing machine for the third time. The 2nd one I replaced after a few years when the little leather loops that hold the strap on fell apart. My current one has hundreds of miles of running and hiking on it, and thousands of hours of abuse working in a hospital. not bad for $40.

I like your style, minus the Wal-Mart.

Re: What's your timepiece of choice?

My day to day watch is a Rolex Submariner Date but I also have a 1973 Heuer Carrera chronograph with a Lemania 5100 movement, a Seiko SKX781K "Orange Monster" dive watch and a Timex Ironman that I haven't worn since the batteries died about fifteen years ago.
