nice colors too- that nike watch

I think that form/+ shape and how it performed when worn was very sucessful. I have also a trail/ runners watch-by nike posted it earlier.. but dont use it to run-never have used a watch personally worn when running-do people use them , do a majority of the watch users use them for these running purposes or trail hiking adventures ???

I think people buy because they look cool and come with a lot of cool lil features that they will never use but can brag that they have them-hey gotta have something to talk about at lunch other than work---smile



30 - 40 watches yes that is a collection

but which do you where everyday ??

I have one of the Nike's but I've never used it for running. I ended up strapping it to my bike's handlebars to use for lap timing. It has survived many spills that my bike and I didn't. :)

I really love the Ikepods, but I cannot justify the prices they command even if I had the money to spend on a watch.

The Gehry Fossil watch is really neat, and will probably be my next watch to purchase. Some of the Nixons are really nice as well.

I currently wear a Fossil Chrono that is the archetypal dress watch IMO, and has proven to be quite indestructable. I've busted almost ever watch I've ever owned, unfortunately.

None of my previous watches were expensive thankfully. Usually cracked/damaged the crystal and/or face and hands. Broke a couple of pocket watches this way with them in my pants pocket - without injuring myself! Broke the adjustment knob off of a couple as well, and exceeded the shock limit on one digital (that was my diagnosis anyway, nothing would revive it).

Through all this I've learned not to wear a watch when biking, playing any "extreme" sport, or when working in the shop. :roll:

yo -

what are the case dimensions of the mini watch? It looks pretty cool...


How about a Space Yota:

http://www.yotawatchworks.com/html/spac ... /orbit.htm

I didn't pay list for the Yota. The picture on the net doesn't do the watch justice, though I don't have a better picture of it (but can take one). The only gripe I have is it doesn't have ticks for anything lower than 15 min.

I also have a pocket watch by Fossil, with a clear (magnifying) glass cover. I've never seen a picture on the net, but could attach one if anyone wants.

The bezel is about 40mm x 35mm, which I like because I have a thick wrist (I'm big boned), so it looks proportionate on me, what I don't like is that the very cool fabric wrapped spring steel band pinches my big boney wrist by the end of the day and leaves a viscous red mark.... the things we suffer for fashion.

I'll put something together to show. The favorite one I did is on my below link, I have it in 3 color ways.

I'm liking that one, and very reasonable. Is it a good size?

When I get home I'll take a few pictures, and measure the dial. I've been meaning to photograph a few of my watches as it is...

The dial is on the larger end - I have narrow wrists, and it looks OK but the dial doesn't sit snugly (I'm between holes - one is just too large, the other too tight, aggg). Perhaps after a few years. The strap feels like it's 100% rubber, and I'm tempted to order another one if it ever gets damaged.

watch in the matrix

whoop
Does anyone remember the watch that the Jada Smith had in the Matrix ? It was kind of a hybrid digital / analog design that looked really cool.
