Your Best Watch of 2009 is . . .

The year ain't done yet, but the watch my son bought me for my birthday, Magico Auto Carbon Fiber dial from Amazon for $47.00 is the neatest watch at the moment. Not to be confused with the SWI limited I recently bought for myself.

My best watch purchase is a tie.

Based completely on actual wrist time - is a tie between these 2 watches:

Not to beat a dead horse, but my Silver on Silver Scuba - best value of the year by far IMO


And my Citizen Eco Drive Orca - just the coolest watch on so many levels

Those Scubas are really starting to grow on me.

I don't think this will come to a shock to any of you but this was my best watch purchase in 2009



My second best purchase would be my Gevril GV2 that arrived today. Beautiful watch by the way. It even came with the calibration print-out.

Best watch purchase I dont have one, they all get the same wrist time once every 60 days.

Best watch I have ever recieved is the Invicta Titan RD mechanical I was gifted from Arnie. The one and only watch that will never leave the nest!!!

Great watches, guys! :)


My "best" for 2009 is my Jacques Lemans F1 GMT!

It's not my biggest watch (it's actually the smallest), it's not the most expensive (it's actually my 2nd "cheapest" watch), and it's certainly not the most worn watch of 2009 (it's worn on F1 Sundays, only).

However, I also got one for my Uncle, who besides me, is the biggest F1 fan that I know. It's my connection to him and our love of racing (especially F1). He's a guy who helped me through some tough times.

So, when I wear this watch . . . it brings a smile to my face like no other watch that I own! :)
