Show off your timepieces! / What's on fanatics wrists? (PICS!!)

I have seen a number of threads in the past few months regarding horology and wanted to see what other watch-crazed (or otherwise) fanatics had in their collection.

I'll start off... currently 5 watches in rotation:



- Breitling for Bentley GMT [2010] (just got it 2 weeks ago! my new favorite!)



- Breitling Chrono-Matic [2008]



- Breitling B2 [2003] (my first "real" watch)



- Omega SeaMaster [Co-axial Auto 2010]



- Panerai Luminor Marina Power Reserve [2006] (PAM 090)



Here they are sleeping in the winders


Looking forward to seeing what everybody else is into! (I am guessing a lot of PAMs based on the threads I have seen)

OP, so jealous of the seamaster. I want the quantum of solace seamaster that looks almost identical (but has the 007 second hand)

I am on a "starter watch" for the time being. Burberry with alligator leather wrist band.


GF said once I get used to wearing it every day, I can consider spending bigger bucks on a real deal one.

sorry, i didn't know there was an existing thread to just post your collection. i have seen numerous threads on the following topics:
- suggestions on watch to buy within a price range
- suggestions on watch to buy as a gift
- pics of your "dream" watch / watches you plan to buy

i definitely didn't intend to create a duplicate thread

i have yet to meet 1 girl that has known what a Breitling, Panerai, or Omega is... let alone how much they cost

i have had people ask if my Panerai is something from Pac-Sun or Urban Outfitters... so pretty much the opposite response as you are suggesting..

guess i should just keep posts asking people to show their collections on timezone, breitlingsource, and paneraisource

Not as nice as some of the other watches posted but, I love my Bernhardt Sea Shark:



I currently have it on a gray/black NATO and it is a fantastic daily watch.
