Buy What you Like....

I think we can all admit that we may have been influenced by Watch YouTube at some point for a piece or two. But what I want to know is this...

What watche(s), have you purchased for your enjoyment that most people (watch fam or not) have found to be questionable or they didn't like?

Mine is in the comments.

My Navitimer on the Air Racer Bracelet has garned hate all over the place, (IG, Reddit etc.), but I love the look and what it means.聽

At the opposite end of the spectrum from Breitling is this $3 AliExpress special that gets more than a few chuckles and has my wife questioning my sanity. 馃ぃ

I think the best comment I got about this watch is that it looks like a dog's dinner!

It's amazing how much hate there is out there for TAG...

I love that watch. 聽I just wish it weren't so damned thick...

The watch fam doesn't seem to like these as much as the rest of the world does. 聽I don't really understand why, the functionality is great if you can put up with charging it like a phone.

Heh -- I won't even put up with quartz watches because of dead batteries! 聽I certainly wouldn't deal with that.

From family (i e wife) not so many 鈥漬ot like鈥, 聽鈥漲uestionable鈥 (need of) is another story.

I don't really understand what's going on there, but for $3 how can anyone criticize you?

I don't dislike smart watches because of the watch community, I dislike them based on owning one and hating the notifications, as well as poor battery performance.聽

It has to be my Zenith A384 Revival. Most people loathe the tonneau case but I loved it. 聽There was a one time that I would scour the internet just to want to read some good review of the watch but in the end, it didn't matter anymore. 聽For most people it was simply the case. The masses tends to like the the tri-colour chronomaster revival series but to me, the shape was just like any other watch.

It's not so much that my watch is disliked, it's that people pretend they didn't exist, and didn't sell as well/better than their competition. Everybody in the watch community obsesses over Casio, but I see far more Timex digital, and analog watches in the real world than I see Casio.聽

The early 90s version of this was my first "real" watch, and since then I have owned many. I wore one of these through most of military career, and have never found them lacking in any practical way. As a matter of fact, the only reason I switched to "nicer" analog watches was because the digital watch just didn't look "fancy" enough.聽

I don't know about everyone else, but for me, wearing a watch is an anachronistic act, so a smart watch sort of defeats that.馃ぃ I have nothing against anyone who wears one, but they are not for me.

It's more of an aesthetic thing; the watch is ugly according to my wife.

I cannot wait for them to bring back those early 90's models!... the teal colorway was my dream when I was in middle school and my folks picked me up the Casio competitor instead.... The Timex indiglo color at that time was revolutionary.聽
