What Your Watch Brand Says About You

Hello guys,,

A. Lange & SŲhne: You work in investments, but nowhere as common as Wall Street. You have been known to casually ask to compare balance bridges with Patek owners.
https://trackeasy.fun/usps/ https://showbox.tools/ http://essaywriter.fun/
Bell & Ross: You think IWCs are a pale imitation of a Boeing 767 flight instrument. You want to wear the entire flight panel.

Casio: In school, your glasses were held together with Scotchtape, and the mechanical pencil in your shirt-front pocket always jammed, but your trusty Calculator Watch never failed. You are shocked that others are copying your look ironically.

I'll stick to my practical Casio G-Shock. I wear it to work, night out, business meetings, working on the house/building, cooking. Everything.

Rolex: It says you have achieved something ,you deserve something and want to show it without overdoing it unless you spend on yellow or rose gold models

I have an Omega, Breitling, and Ebel. I have a few other but these are my favorite. I sold a few because lately I wear my Garmin Fenix 5X plus.

Omega Planet Ocean is the best it is so classy and it goes with anything. Breitling Chrono much heavier and mine has a white face if I want to change things up. Ebel 1911 Chrono is way underrated it was my first mechanical watch Iíll keep it forever.

I may own a Rolex at some point but the cheaper ones in my opinion donít compare to Omega or several other brands for that matter. I would love the Hulk, I do love the Submariner.

Without over doing it would be simply keeping the money. People buy Rolex because they want to over do it. If they didn't want to over do it, they'd just use the clock on their phone. For example - "When I wanted a car and wanted to celebrate that I had done something, but wanted to be low key without overdoing it, I bought a McLaren."

It says that you are a man of refined taste, and that you have too many damn watches.....but not really, I have a collection too; yours is just nicer.

I rotate a SS Submariner/Date, 39mm OP, 36mm DJ, with a G Shock, and a Casio World Time. My Seiko turtle SRP773, and Sarb033 are also my favorite. And I canít forget my Timex Expedition, and Weekender. What this says about me, is that I enjoy watches.

My Omega says I spent way too much monies on it rather than get useless crystal figurines in the better half's display case
or so I've been told by said better half

My friends are amazed at the number of watches I have, why have so many expensive watches when a cheepo does the same thing, my stock reply is " I get fed up looking at the same face every day "

I have a few minimalistic Skagen's that I've had for many years. I only wear them at weddings and funerals. I think that says more than the watch. lol
