I'm surprised nobody has one of these:
DOXA the SUB collection - How Deep can you go?
They're nearly indestructible. I know of a guy that has had one for almost 40 years.

Dennis: To answer your question about Rolex's.....no, not necessarily. They look pretty, but you are paying for the name, they are known not to keep the best time.


My hubby is the watch guy in our family. He owns a variety of brands including Seiko, Casio, Fossil, Renato, Invicta, and Oris. He used to have a Rolex, but sold it because it didn't keep time right.

Me I just have a few Invicta's.

Stainless Rolex - not flashy at all. If your Rolex doesn't keep time well, it needs to serviced and adjusted.

Retired. Retired Concord watch on the very day I retired. Now, I either look at the sun to approximate the time or look at my iPhone for improved accuracy.

No they still perform. They are a great band! Though lead singer, Peter Cetera has not been with the band for many years. Here's their website:

Chicago - The Official Band Website

They are even scheduled to perform here:

May 22
Windsor, Ontario, Canada The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor
Is that near you?

Why rolex

I have worn my Rolex Submariner everyday for over 35 years. It's like an Airstream, with proper maintenance they both should last as long as I will need them.
Both are just habits that I have picked up along the way with no regrets.

I'm a big Rolex Submariner fan...cost me about $15 in China....

It's worked great for many years, and when it finally does give up the ghost, it's disposable!

Good habits, Chip, unlike my ragtag herd of old radios. Too much work just to dust them!

I have two fossil watches. One I recieved from school for an award and one my wife bought me for christmas. The school watch I have had for years and works great. My whole family has fossil watches. Good price and they work well.

Mitch.... the watch guy.

Here's one for 'ya...only cost 'ya 200k.

Three battery powered sitting dead on my dresser, how 'bout one that would shut down when you pull the stem out to set it. Batteries might last a bit longer.

Is it just me or do you seem age more slowly when you ware a stopped watch?
