$2400 Tag Carerra, absolutely love it and wear it to the office most days

Have a couple quartz battery watches around the $1k range

Planning on springing for a $5k Omega I've had my eye on in a few years or so, wouldn't be prudent to buy now but it's my short-term dream watch

LT dream watch is a Rose Gold Perpetual Moon Arnold & Son

The 6X looks nice. I've had the 5X Plus Sapphire for over 2 years and it was one of the best decisions I have made to increase my athletic performance. I've literally beaten the shit out of it and it still works great. I had an Apple watch once that I shattered in 2 days. That Garmin Sapphire screen is bulletproof.

Have fun with it. I used my Pulse Ox in acclimation as well and it is an indicator of Covid if you have Pulse Ox too. If you're falling into the 80s in Oxygen saturation, it is a symptom of Covid.

Yeah it's been great. I had a 5X for a while and debated whether it was worth upgrading. Ultimately there were a couple things that did it for me:

  • Battery life is way, way better
  • Bigger screen is really nice for reading maps while hiking
  • Ski resort maps are now integrated into the skiing app
  • 6X has a backcountry skiing app
  • There are some interesting pacing features for running
  • A lot more storage for international maps

Pulse Oximetry is interesting. For the most part I keep it off because it sucks battery, but I got HAPE while I was skiing in Colorado last year and I did use it to track my oxygen levels. It was pretty cool.

The watches are great, and you're right, the Sapphire glass is bomb proof. I think it probably makes sense to wait for the next generation coming from the 5X Plus, but the 5X made sense for me.

  • Tudor Black Bay Blue for casual Friday's (the pre-2015 model with no date)

  • Vintage 1981 steel Rolex date-just for standard business days

  • 1970s vintage Seiko Navigator from important meetings and travel (was a relative's watch and is my "lucky" one)

  • 1990s Zentih El Primero Chrono with light brown ostrich strap for more laid-back client dinners

I've made a decision that I want maximum 5 watches in my collection. Any more need to be exchanged with one I currently have and frankly I am not willing to get rid of any as of now. The ideal 5th would be either a nice Patek Philippe with a complication such as a World Time or a very clean dial, thin Panerai Luminor with a leather strap.

Apple Watch.

Don't get me wrong, an Omega or a Rolex would be sweet, but neither tell me if someone texts or calls me.

I'll buy a nice watch one of these days for special events. They do legitimately look sexy.

I just don't see the every day utility from them.

Haha, I'm pretty tactical about my watch purposes. Net positive on them so it's not nearly as bad as it seems! :)

Baume & Mercier Clifton, steel band. Thinking about getting a speedmaster soon but part of me wants to try for a GMT. Will make the call around xmas this year

I wouldn't do the GMT. Very little watch for the $.

Rolex Datejust 16220 - birth year Rolex with a tapestry dial & engine turned bezel with an oyster bracelet. Got it in great condition from a trusted seller online for a very fair price. Even had the showroom sticker on the back still. Not a trust fund kid, but irresponsibly blew my summer money on it.

Nah it doesn't. Roulette wheels are cool though, I like the pop the red color on the date gives. I'm a sucker for the little details like that. I have a vintage manual wind Hamilton from the 40's where the second hand has a little arrow shape at the end of it painted red and looks really cool.

Apple watch, a couple of the MDs in our group have bought them as well. Really useful as a health device / exercise tracker.

I've been thinking of getting this watch, but then would have to go homeless, worth it?
