In 3rd World settings I prefer to rock a Jacob The Jewler like my dawgs P Diddy and Fity while handing out Bell & Ross BR Instruments to emaciated beggers 'cause they look sooo cool on skinny wrists. Funny thing is, the kids usually request a Richard Mille instead, but those are hard to keep in stock.

Back home I carry my Hydromax in it's waterproof box and check my cel phone for the time of day.

For everyday wear I use my Tag Heuer Autavia with black face and band, for more formal (or when I want to show off To cute stewardesses’ ..haha) I wear my Breitling Chrono Cockpit 2 tone, for outdoor stuff at work (Like killing someone with my bear hands) I use a G-Shock Metal Band and for really nasty envirements nothing beats my G-Shock Classic.

I also have a huge collection of Copy/Fake watches that I have picked up from all around the world (like over 100). The funny thing is a 25 dollar Fake watch bought in China Town in KL, Malaysia looks as good as some of my real ones, I have a couple fakes that I have used for over 8 years now with no problems.

Maybe I am wasting my money buying name brand watches when I could buy a fake for 25 bucks.

I own several Skagen watches - I like the mesh bands. And my swiss army watch for kayaking. But lately I haven't been using a watch at all and use my cell phone to tell time.....a seeming BFC trend :-)

I wear a Rolex Blk-face-Explorer 2 (For the third hand.................I'll explain later Foulplay...:-)
Bought it new 18 years ago.
Because of one incident ,it's had new bezel, glass & face. Fliplock replaced through wear.
Because of that it looks quite new.
Takes the rough-stuff (apart from above) & looks ok with a whistle.

In really interesting places I wear a 1972 Cabot Watch Co.(CWC) Military Issue Mechanical Aviators Chronograph (Valjoux 7765 movement) with grey military canvas strap.
This was given to me and it all works.

I just leave the radio on really!!
CWC & Rolex Explorer 2
It's not that often that my watches are in the same place & with a d-camera around.
The CWC may be of interest.

A Tudor Submariner that's older than I am. I wear it on a completely nondescript NATO strap and it's so beat-up looking that nobody gives it a second look.. and it still keeps time to within a few seconds a day, no batteries, no problems.

Define irony. Fuckers stole my $20 Casio in Bogota.

I better not get shit for this...a Sunto Vector. It's just an awesome watch. I go through one every three years or so and they send me a new one for $80. I'm on my third. That thing can take a beating.

you tell em you feeling like something important died screaming
you tell em you feeling like something even more important arrived breathing
something you should probably try feeding

The only shit I'm going to give you is that you spelled Suunto wrong.

I use one of these:

The altimeter is really accurate, even at really high altitudes. My latest one has had the crap beaten out of it, but it keeps going. The only hassle is it usually sets off the metal detectors in airports.

Omega Seamaster for everything pretty much although I do have a Casio Pathfinder for the rough stuff and a 1968 Omega Speedmaster for those black tie missions.

I always thought watches were for bribing people with - and should therefore always be good fakes :)

Luminox. I've had it for about a year, so I can't speak for durability over the long term, but I am perfectly happy thus far. It's bright as a bastard.

I have an amazingly good fake of a Rolex from the Phillipines. I'm sure I'll put it to good use eventually...
