    I have a Rotary watch for smart, a Seiko chronograph for sporty look and aPolice watch for casual wear.

    This is my current everyday workhorse watch. It's a Fortis GMT Spacematic Date.


    By far the best watch that I have owned. I do have my eyes firmly fixed on a Panerai for special occasions but that'll have to wait another few months.

    Mind you some charge crazy amounts for a new battery , I had a waterproof one and the shop I brought it from said it had to be sent away to be resealed and wanted to charge me £60 it cost me about £110 accurist I think it was ,anyway I took it down the road and they charged me £5 but said it may not be waterproof any more ,they were right :(:D

    Yeah, I'd love one of those. That watch is stunning, purely because of the simplicity. Some of the other Spring Drive watches will be nice too, looking at the website.

    Probably, but like cufflinks, they will still be a fashion statement.

    I have a £7.50 Casio from Argos which i'am proud of, was supposed to £15. I work in a lab so a nice watch is slightly pointless as i need stopwatch and hard wearing design.

    The Moonwatch.

    There are many watches I would love to own (Pateks and Daytonas', for example) but I just love the provenance of the Moonwatch. As much as my collection grows; I don't think anything will ever replace it as my favourite.

    I wear a Seiko Premier Perpetual Kinetic (SNP001P1) - Got it for my 21st Birthday. I wear it almost every day, although I take it off when I am doing anything that might kill it!

    I'm not even joking :p

    I have another watch which my mum gave me when my Dad passed away a couple of weeks ago. She gave it to him as a present a couple of years ago and he wore it every day. I haven't worm it much though. It is nice though :)
