I'm interested in what kind of watches you guys have, are some of you using smartwatches or a classic watch?
What is this watch called?
Same question. It’s beautiful.
Oh come on, it clearly says Braun on it. :)
I meant the exact model. I found it myself, I just didn’t remove the comment.
I own the same one. Currently my favorite. In regards to the other questions – you can find it here: http://www.braun-clocks.com/watch/BN0021BKBKG
same!! it's beautiful
Yup, same here.
I have two.
The Ziiiro watch.
The MVMT watch.
The MVMT feels big! I was really interested but don't want to walk around with a clock on my wrist
I have a phone that tells the time and syncs to a server to ensure it’s always accurate. :)
Same here. And it feels great to have the wrists free from stuff.
I got a watch recently because I found myself going down the rabbit hole on my phone when I just wanted to check the time.
A watch as a form of self control. I think that works! :D
MVMT. It's a new company out of San Diego that I supported on Kickstarter. The one I'm sporting is the white face with tan strap model.
And for sports or active days, I'll wear Timex Weekenders because they're durable, simple, and have interchangeable straps.
I love the Weekender as a casual watch. I've got the one with the blue/gray band.
The one caveat of this watch is that it is incredibly loud—as in the loudest clock I've ever heard. This turns many people off, but it is my favorite feature. It reminds me of my grandmother's house in the country.
That's so true. You won't notice it walking around during the day but trying to fall asleep with one on the bedroom dresser is like being driven crazy by a metronome.
That comes in handy when I'm working from home on a deadline. I tend to work in 15 min chunks called Pomodoros and putting one of the Weekenders by the laptop is a subtle audio and visual cue for getting into the zone.
Shitty watch can't even tell what time it is.
I love mine. I wrote a few watchfaces for it, but then they overhauled the OS and I haven't gotten around to updating the faces. Someday.
That tiny lovely thing on my wrist makes my life easier everyday.
Uniform Wares 103. This is my daily wear for the past year or so, my best friend. Simple, clean lines, and a great feel.
This is beautiful
I wanted to get one, but they're all made of resin nowadays.
I got this one instead:
Sweet! I also have a golden casio (but with black surrounding the display)
Went to Norway on a trip a couple years ago. Saw this in a little design shop and had to have it!
I was a huge fan of Mondaine when I first saw them, but as somebody who has spent hours looking at the SBB/CFF/FFS clocks that they are based off was very disappointed that they didn't include the clock's most distinguishing feature, the way minutes change.
The minute hands on Swiss railway clocks only move in one quick motion exactly on the minute (60 seconds), while the second hand travels the minute for 58 seconds, pauses for two, and continues. See this video: http://youtu.be/IvIvKiDWDks
EDIT: So I looked into this some more, and it turns out that as of 2013 Mondaine does produce a model that captures some of the spirit of the big railway clocks, the model stop2go.
See the video here. Quite cool: http://youtu.be/LJwPOBoy3V8 the only let down is that the bpm of the second hand is quite low, not smooth at all like the originals, which, in my opinion, are much more elegant.
A simple Seiko
Those Seikos are so durable. I have the same watch, but with an olive green NATO strap; previously, I've gussied it up with a leather strap (much like yours).
I love watches. I try to do a freelance project or two each year to get a snazzy one.
Rolex Explorer 1 (Ultra classic and bomb proof, wearing now)
Bell and Ross BR 03-92
Nooka Zub Zen V38 in Red (not expensive, but fun! :) )
Next on my list: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
You know, I went to an architecture bookstore downtown and bought a Braun watch. But... dare I say... it's total garbage. The watch itself is beautiful and the leather strap is very comfortable, but it the time is always off and the date counter is out of wack. It bums me out.
In actuality, my Nixon Axis (sadly discontinued) nets me both the most compliments and keeps the best time.
Just bought this one a few minutes ago.
I get a lot of compliments on this one. Tough to find a men's watch this low profile. This is my second one.
As so many others in this thread, Braun:
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean. It was a gift to myself when I landed a new gig...
Mostly I''m using my leather Timex Easy Reader
I don't own these babies but they are in my wishlist :)
My Nexus 5. I don't wear watches since 2003.
A present from my future mother-in-law
Braun BN0032C. It shows me the time & date and it looks beautiful.
That is gorgeous. The nicest of the Braun watches on this thread IMO.
I wear a watch every day and have a few different styles, from old classics to more modern digital timepieces. My favourite watch (and the one I'm wearing right now) is the Omega Speedmaster, or "Moonwatch", the same model that the first astronauts wore on the moon:
I'm a fan of Omega watches, they're great. I inherited my current Seamaster from my dad a couple of years ago and he had it since around 1999 when they released the Bond one. Just fell in love with the black ceramic on coated nylon fabric Moonwatch.
Nothing too fancy. Just a Casio. My brother got it for me for my birthday and it has served me quite well so far :)
I love watching it move
JLC ultra thin moon. Super minimal and doesn't give me problems with my cuff always catching it :)
I've got 2... the one on the left is my daily watch... an Omega Chrono Diver which I'm in love with. The one on the right was the first "nice" watch I bought... the first TAG Indy500 Chrono. Both have been absolutely bomb-proof... I do not treat these things delicately.
Both are very nice pieces! Especially the Omega
4 bit binary watch from Cadence (now on closeout for only $20):
Shinola Runwell. Manufactured in Detroit.
did not expect that price.
We're based out of Detroit as well and had an opportunity to tour their facilities when they were ramping up for production. The Runwell was their first and so I just had to grab one (any higher and I probably would have passed) for memories sake.
here is a silly question, how did you add images to your comment. Markdown's image tag is not working with my public dropbox link :(
Took me half a dozen tries but string all of these things together.

Citizen Perpetual Chrono A-T No maintenance whatsoever, just works. Solar powered, radio controlled (atomic timekeeping). So you don't have to wind it or be worried about it not saying correct time :)
I'm a tokyo flash lover:
STOWA Antea 365 A10 http://www.stowa.de/Antea+365+A10.htm
I like this. Check this website http://theexclusivegent.com/ and get more ideas.
I had this watch for over 2 years now, I absolutely love it, what do you think guys?
When's lunch time?
It's always lunch time!
Fossil Nate Chronograph
The face looks a lot less tacky than the photo. Big chunky watch, but i love it.
D&G Medicine Man
Big Face Woody
I have a Pebble too, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would.
Rodania Swiss Xelos Automatic.
I still love my Philippe Starck Crystal Clear.
I also wear this "Icon Watch" which is cute but leaves marks if you have a bed parter.
Nixon 51-30 is the only watch I wear, have 7 in my collection so far. This is today's choice:
I have a Lorus that is a simple outdoorsy watch (green canvas strap, simple face. I also wear a Citizen Navihawk watch for fancy/special occasions. I'm really into aviation so it was a gift from my family when I graduated high school. Nice!
This bad boy just got here :)
Right now rocking Bulova 98B212 Precisionist
I have a few different watches but my favorite style could be described as a Field watch or Pilot's watch.
Haven't ever worked up the nerve to buy an expensive watch though because I always wind up beating my watches up on accident. My daily watches are a Timex Field Watch and a Bertucci Field Watch. I recently bought one from a company called AVI-8 and it's a beautiful watch that receives numerous compliments but it is a little large at 46
My Nixon. I've got a few watches but she's my fav.
What model is this?
This is the Rotolog in Teak. It's offered in a variety of other styles, some of which are also wood. You've got bamboo, dark wood, dark wood w/ matte black, black acrylic, white acrylic, black and white acrylic...all sorts of stuff. All awesome.
Casio - Solar. $25, it tells me the time and tides (I surf and fish) and works on the sun's energy = very SMART watch.
Shinola - THE RUNWELL www.murraymitchell.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/shinola-argonite-1069-watch.jpg
I run nearly every day so I wear a Suunto Ambit 2s
I use a FitBit force, but I miss having a traditional watch.
This Braun watch. http://www.braun-clocks.com/watch/BN0021BKBKG
I don't own one currently, but my favourite watch is by far the 1963 Seagull: http://seagull1963.com

CAT here :-)
Pebble Steel :)
Swatch, loads of them, mostly in the gaudy bright colours! Think this will be next on my list.
Just got me one of these
This a thread I can get behind!
Firstly, it makes me so happy to see the number of designers out there with lovely old-fashioned analogue watches. There is something wonderful about having something non-digital, with leather and engineered moving parts.
I rock this Boss. Like a Boss. No second hand = no stress. Time becomes a calming distraction.
Swatch Warm Rebel most of the time
A classic watch from Gant.

Nothing too fancy
