I thought about doing that but then determined it would be too weird...guess I could always just try it though!

I saw a band (I think Sinn made it) that would allow the apple watched to be attached to the watch band at the bottom by where the clasp would be...

EDIT:
Found it...

Well Iíve been wearing a series of fitbits, jawbones and other fitness trackers on my other wrist for years so I look at it that way.

I bought Apple Watch to see if Iíd like it and because there are times you donít want a few thousand £$Ä on your wrist. Problem was I did like it, I found the notifications really useful and enjoyed the all day fitness tracking - but I missed my Omega.

Itís a great conversation starter

I JUST got an Apple watch for Xmas this year.
My wife has had one since they came out and wears it every day.
I have been strapping mine on when I get home at night before I workout and I wore it all last weekend.
It is pretty neat, but I honestly don't think it will see much wrist time unless I'm "working out", or, like you said, don't feel like having something a lot more expensive on.

I LOVE slickdeals! Some would say it's an addiction. I definitely buy things I don't need just because of a great deal! Slickdeals is especially good for watch hunting!

My very cheap daily watches I referenced in an earlier post -- a Bulova automatic and a Bulova Precisionist. Even though the latter has a quartz movement, the seconds hand has a smooth sweep.

I have an update, instead of purchasing the Tissot PRS 516 Extreme, I won an auction on ebay for a preowned Tag Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 chronograph (CAZ2012) for a sweet deal of $1200.
I was the only bidder, and I got it for such a low price that the seller actually messaged me saying if I didn't like the item I could return it and get a full refund. I'm sure he thought he could get more for it.
I will post pictures when it arrives.

Hah nice! And screw that if you don't like it you could probably flip it.

I know I was posting a little earlier that I was super pumped because I was finally buying the Speedy Pro for my birthday at the end of Feb...
But I think as I am nearing 30 I am becoming more responsible.

I have decided to hold off since it is the responsible thing to do.
With the baby coming, I want to focus more on family stuff rather than dropping a bunch of money on just me.

I'll give it a few more months and see how I really feel about it.

Here is one of my favorite daily watches that I wear, Longines HydroConquest automatic. I wear it casually as you can see with my ripped jeans and sweatshirt. I have a few other nice ones but I wear them mostly to work and I take the train into NYC so not many chances for a pic in the car. I’ve always really like watches but they get pricey and since I’m preparing for a wedding unfortunately I don’t have the spare cash to buy more, but maybe for my 30th b day I’ll get something cool. I’m looking at classic two tone datejusts, IWC Ingy and a few others.

I do!
Great for timing how long it takes me to do something (like driving to work).
Great for knowing your speed when you know the distance and vice versa. I use my tachymetre and dials on the daily!

You cheap bastards! Not one Rolex? A LONG time ago I almost bought one that had a leather band with a gold case and back. New it was $750. Now leather and stainless is probably $4,000.

At least! Depending on model of course.
Watches can definitely can be a great investment with a little bit of research and luck!
