    You're a man of basses and automobiles I guess.

    So, are you into your timepieces? I'm personally using a Hamilton Jazzmaster as it ties in with my stage attire quite nicely. What are you sporting these days?

    Also, any of you other guys got anything going on wrist-wise?

    I haven't worn a watch in years.
    When I played drums, the weight on one wrist felt strange.

    I sport a daily Rolex stainless GMT and have two Audemars Piguet's in the safety deposit box..

    Always take them off when playing... too much risk of harm to both bass and watch!

    I'm addicted to watches & high end basses - at least I was - got many of my dreams & stopped

    Probably 10 good watches - I don't buy fancy jewelry types but sturdy fine movement types - been wearing a Glycine Combat or Airman Double 24 GMT lately

    My limit is about $3k

    I just saw a single-arm watch that I'm quite interested in. I have a "titanium quartz" that I have to wear around certain family members around the holidays, most of the time I only wear a Samsung Galaxy in my pocket. My first chronometer was a mean early 2k's Nokia fixed-antenna half-brick.

    I haven't worn a watch while playing since high school. I wear a watch to work. It's the very first thing I shed when I walk through the door. I've become accustomed to wearing two 'rubber' bands around my right wrist. They read : "Love Conquers Hate" with an 'Equal' sign on them. One to wear, one to give the anyone (friend or potential friend) who notices, and wants to start the conversation...'cuz 'merica, that's why!

    I wear a few watches and regularly wear a Tag Heuer Formula 1 and a Bulova. My very special watch that I wear occasionally is a 1969 Omega Speed Master 'Moon Watch' that was handed down to me. I have to be careful with it, because it has apparently been worn on the moon but is not waterproof.

    Apple Watch... soon (wife works there).

    38mm version interferes least with my playing. And I have dainty wrists.

    That's what I paid for my van too. Not rich either just a sucker for timepieces. If it has a battery I'm not interested -only mechanical. I think they're some of the neatest things every made by hand.

  19. I never wear anything but a loincloth.

    I've been eyeballing a Mr. T starter set on ebay however.
