Thanks., I am sure I was wearing it when I came to stay with you years ago. Your Presidential is nice too but it seems like the white gold ones are the new thing. I want a day/date but am too cheap and can't justify it.

The market for Rolex watches is all over the place. You see some for $1500 and other ones selling for tens of thousands, and they don't really look that much different.

When I became interested in watches I did a fair amount of reading on Watchuseek which is the Net 54 equivalent just to get a basic education. One thing that was clear is that many watch collectors have extreme OCD-ish tendencies.

I quit wearing watches when first pagers, then cell phones, then smart phones became available. My carcass will have no jewelry whatsoever on it.

However, I feel the need to have a digital clock that can be read from across every room at home.

Hey, but that's just me.

Here are a few of my personal favorites. The stainless/white gold watch is my daily wearer and the vintages (20s or 30s--I'll have to look at the serial number again to confirm) is for more casual days. I love watches as most of my purchases were connected with special occasions--the Tag with high school graduation, a Movado for law school graduation, the stainless/white gold to celebrate my first decent bonus, and the vintage watch for my wedding.

Here are a couple of my mechanical watches which have neither the brand (snob) appeal nor the price tag of a Rolex etc.
