don't any of you people actually wear your watch? mine has been on my arm 24/7, except when i go to mexico, since i got it in 1994 (and it shows in this crappy picture). it's due for a new crystal and maybe a band, too.

I guess you can't see all the scratches on my watches.

The Submariner I'm wearing right now has a band held together with welding rod and a couple of clipped paper clips.

Yep. The Omega (pictured above) had the misfortune of having its bracelet snap into about eight pieces while I was driving one day.

Never had that problem with a Rolex bracelet. The pins will wiggle out from time to time, but you just push them back in or find another pin that will fit. The links are, after all, solid and not hollow.

Take that thing into a jeweler for a cleaning and polishing. For a few $20 bills it will look almost like new. My Rolex is a 1964 from before they used Sapphire crystals so I have to bring it in every few months to get the crystal polished. It's looks like new when I pick it up.

I really wouldnt mind having a nice TAG , Rolex, or Breitling, theyre awesome watches... but I just cant bring myself to spend more than about $600 on anything Im that likely to destroy...
I think my next watch will be a Seiko Kinetic....
