    Was just wondering if there were any collectors or admirers on here of high end watches? I've had a few over the years that i've bought/sold/traded but i'm looking at getting another one now. Those of you that saw the reasons to be cheerful thread will know that I had to return the most recent purchase. :angryfire

    I'm more of a Breitling fan so was hoping that someone on here who knew about them a bit more than me could offer up some advice?

    Anyway, i'm looking at the Navitimer world or the Cosmonaute. Wanted to know the best ones to look at. Atm i'm loving the look of the 1986 Cosmonaute but i'm undecided.

    1986 Cosmonaute.

    Yes I do like watches and had 2 and bought another one at the duty free at stansted last week. I'm not a collector, just like to wear them.

    Had a Storm silver watch bought for me about fifteen years ago. Cannot go out of the house without wearing a watch whether it is my cheapy one for work or my G-Shock. Many don't wear watches these days as they get the time off their mobile phones.

    I'm a bit of a Disney fanatic so collect Mickey Mouse watches (and occasionally other characters). I have about 10 so far, but haven't spent more than about £200 on one.

    I can't justify spending big money on a watch, although I would love a great time piece, so may eventually save for one.

    I also love Breitling watches, and think they make the best designs, although my dream watch would actually be an Omega Seamaster. Mostly because I am the closest the world would ever see to an actual James Bond.

    If I sold my watch collection I could probably buy your club.

    I'd introduce safe standing, and all the urinals would have a pic of Alan Shearer.

    You'd be massively underselling your collection.

    I do love a seamaster. It's high end quality without the showmanship. Very subtle. My mate has two, been trying to buy one off him for a while now. :laugh:

    Then that won't appeal to you.

    You only wear it with short sleeves and your arm constantly raised in the air shouting, "WATCH me, WATCH me!"

    I love my seamaster, it is a beautiful watch but the stalk was damaged when it was sent for repair once and it's been swapped out twice since for the same break. Just not the same any more :cry:
