    My trinity.

    Orient Mako "pepsi" bezel, on a no-brand NATO strap.
    I'm currently waiting on a steel band for this.
    Turns out the band is in the same colours and pattern used by the guards regiments, and I've actually been taken for a military/ex-military man on one occasion, which was a bit awkward, since I didn't even know......

    Inherited this from my father. I don't wear it that often, because of it's sentimental value. Although I'd wear it more if I had a more watch-friendly job.

    Seiko automatic
    Inherrited this from my grandfather. Only gets worn for the occasional fancy evening event, as it is not only irreplaceable due to sentimental value, but it also doesn't keep great time anymore.

    I'm usually posting pics of back packs but I love watches too. Here's a pic of the wrist arsenal Breitling Navitimer 46mm and my near 20 year old Omega Seamaster,and William Henry CF bracelet. The ZT just happened to be in the area so it made the pic. Lol

    Simple and sweet....After ex hag in my divorce stole my watch collection consisting of some nice 4 Tissots, 3 Bulovas, a and a couple of Omega Seamasters that I paid around $3K each for when I was single. Though I can afford it, I just can't justify spending thousands of dollars making up that collection again. I can't justify spending 3K on another seamaster when I have a new baby girl with my new wife. I'd rather put it towards her college fund. It's just not about me anymore. My new $20.00 Timex Expedition with the $10.00 nato strap keeps as good time as my old Omegas did. Maybe I'll get a couple of stainless steel Seikos with white dial and a black dial to round things out a little when I pick up a little extra cash. Saw some nice ones I really liked in the $200.00 range. That's good enough for me. I don't need to keep up with the Jones'. My days as a luxury watch guy are over and I couldn't care less. Getting older means material stuff means less to me (at least material stuff that doesn't contribute to memory making activities). If I didn't put the 3K in my daughter's college fund, I'd take the 3K and go on a vacation with my family and make some memories. The day I'm lying in my bed breathing my last few breaths, I'm not going to be thinking about some $3K watch, I'll be thinking of the memories I had with the people I loved.

    Besides, in 20 years, if I can get 5% a year compounded interest on that $3,000.00 it turns into $7959.00. What would a new (today) $3,000.00 Omega Seamaster be worth in 20 years?

    Now, if I won the powerball :). That's a different story altogether. :bounce:
