    Mechanical Watches, which one is your favorite?

    I love to contemplate/observe/analyze mechanical watches, and maybe out there are fans too, so...

    Share the pictures of your watches or just post images of the watches you like/want/going to buy/etc., so... this is what the thread is all about: WATCHES

    Well, i will start sharing mine.

    I look at my cell phone when I want to know the time.

    Yeah, ever since I got a cell phone I've never needed a watch. I think the only time I've worn watches were those child lightup watches with various Disney characters on it.

    I like that watch, the case seems to be 42mm, the crystal comes in sapphire, has a water resistance of 20 atm, but it is a quartz movement, isn't it?

    Too freaking gigantic for my wrist (not to mention too expensive) but I always liked the way IWC watches looked

    i love IWC watches, in fact i'm just about to buy this Portuguese.



    MECHANICAL CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT
    SELF-WINDING
    68-HOUR POWER RESERVE
    FLYBACK FUNCTION
    DIAMETER 45.4 MM

    Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph has all the precision of a nautical instrument in its genes. Powered by the rugged IWC-manufactured 89360-calibre movement and water-resistant to 6 bar, the chronograph demonstrates its sporting qualities with a flyback function and an additional flange with quarter-second calibration for recording short periods of time. Longer stop times (hours/minutes) can be read off like a second time on a separate analogue subdial.

    That is a really nice watch. Was thinking of buying an invicta for myself, but I rarely go out anymore. I don't think it's worth it.
