Lol, as matter of fact I do :(, I get scared having anyone doing repairs in my place. I have a Rado collection as well, I will gather all and post pictures.

3 of the latest addition, first a Swatch found in mint conditions from a collector.

Second, a freaking estate find with all original package, and another Tag to my Heuer collection, the iconic Formula 1.

And third, and one I've been trading on / off, but wanted a black dial with 18ct gold markers, and finally found one worth buying. 1959 (I believe) Oysterdate ref 6694, caliber 1225 mechanical watch. Although is not chronometer certified, at first it measured at 10 seconds slow, but after my watch guy took a look its about +1 a day :). Definitely a timepiece worth keeping for my Rolex collection. Not a flashy one, just a nice piece to wear, very light and classic look.

I actually bought it with the intentions of giving it to my son when graduates High School lol.

I do not currently have any watches, as I really do not like having things on my wrist. But, I am thinking of trying to break this aversion with purchasing a Slow Watch; specifically the Slow Jo 06 38mm style. Anyone have any experience with these? Are they worth the price?

Very interesting, it uses the Ronda 505.24h, which is like the quartz version of the 2893 GMT movement (0 to 24hr scale). I think I still have one, adjusting the time has its quirks, the slightest movement of the crown could be a 15-30 minute increment. Doesn't like to run backwards to adjust, only forward (same as Fortis watches) I believe. It is best to time it to the 30 min or hour mark. I'll put it on my list and let you know when I receive it, should be fun to own it.

Going to revive this thread with some of my timepieces, quartz or not timepieces are timepieces...

Good grief man, that's a lot of watches. But, it's an investment if you bought them right.

Was talking to Adam about this via text but figured I would ask in this thread as well... and to not clutter the thread you can PM me too if you prefer but I am looking for a nice watch as a gift for my groomsmen. Looking to spend $150 or less on each.

I like some of the thin Skagen watches. Non of the Citizen watches that I seem to like are under $150. There are some nice Seiko that I have found...

Sometime Macy have sale on the lower end of bulova watches. I love skagen watch as I have one of them.  If you use Verizon for wireless carrier, you can use your reward points to purchase reduce price bulova. 

Look at Nordstrom rack online in clearance section, sometime they got good deal.

I have a few recommendations, 

​Look into a Tissot T033, with the ETA 805.112 Quartz, sapphire crystal and a nice 38mm case.  The only issue I had with my Danish piece (Skagen), was that the titanium case got scratched easily, and most don't come with sapphire crystals.  But other than that, great watch!

Seiko 5 sports, Automatic mov't (4r36), big nice 43mm case.  Citizen Avion or the Black IP with their famous eco-drive (I really like wearing this one), Avion has a big 45mm case.  

A nice Swatch Irony would also fit the bill, and you can't never go wrong with a sturdy, reliable Swatch!  I'm not sure what to feel about their system 51, mine gains about 5s a day,has some quirks.  Too bad they didn't stay with their supper ETA automatic movement.  

Oh and last but not least, the AVI-8 is also a nice piece, come in quartz and mechanical.  Their automatic movements consist of the solid Japanese MIyota movement.  Good luck!
