We all have been brought together for our love of watches, but I know we all have other hobbies. I thought it would be cool to see what everyone elses hobbies are besides watch collecting.

I have alot of hobbies that include golf, hunting, shooting sports, camping and the one hobby that is getting the most time right now is helping to restore a 1968 Huey helicopter that flew for 2 years in Vietnam. Yup, the same helicopter that is in EVERY Vietnam war movie or news reels. It carried troops into and out of battle, was a gunship and a medavac helo. Ours was a troop carrier and it was also used for medavac as well.

SO, what are your other hobbies??

Fishing for sure! I like to hike as well, although I haven't done any lately.

Working on that Huey has to be a great feeling; being a part of restoring something with so much history.

The Huey is a blast and the history on her is incredible! I have even found a pilot and a crew chief that flew our Huey in Vietnam. We have been able to reunite them with their bird and they were speechless to say the least!

Probably movies. I tend to be a sci-fi movie buff. Also, weight lifting is big...not as big as it used to be but still love it.

i used to collect alot of different things.....knives ,swords, wrestling figures....

i eliminated all of those and narrowed it down to just watches, because i can only afford one.

i have a bunch of tattoos and that is kinda a hobby, i get them when i have the money.

i also like to watch movies alot, ....other than that, i normally dont have alot of time...usually 60 hour work weeks, so it doesnt leave alot of time for much else, i used to play pool all the time........but i dont really have the time to do it anymore.......sucks because i really enjoy it.

Movies - lots and lots of movies. Have seen thousands and thousands of them and almost always have one on.

Working out - been a gym rat for years and since playing competitive sports my entire life. Wish I could work out more now, but still make it to the gym 3-4 days a week. Also playing basketball. Played organized basketball through college.

Building websites, blogs, forums. Also something I wish i had more time for these days, but still do whenever I have time.

Aww...I don't think I have any hobbies unless riding & dance could be considered that...Other than my man, they are the only things that I make time for, I tend to be a bit of a workaholic & taking care of business is funfor me...I rarely watch television & I haven't seen a movie in its entirety in years...
