Do You Give Your Watches a Nickname?

I'm not talking about popular industry nicknames like Batman, Hulk, or Snowflake. I'm talking about pet names you give your watches that are specifically you. An inside joke so to speak.聽

Take, for instance, my Omega Aqua Terra, which I affectionately call my "Zoolander".聽

Why? Because it's.....

Never thought about this, but its a smashing idea, love it 馃憤

Only this one, I call it the "twin's watch" because I was wearing it when my twins were born.聽

My Grand Seiko already has a nickname, so that鈥檚 that but usually I don鈥檛 do this. It鈥檚 a fun idea, though!

Might start nicknaming them if good ones come to my mind.

That counts!

I have one with a nickname given by my wife but affectionately embraced by me.

This is Brown Lump. 馃槀 When I got it, my wife told me it looked like a brown lump of sh*t sitting on my wrist. She hates digital watches.

Also, I have a nickname for a watch I do not yet have. I swore if I ever got a Citizen Nighthawk I would call it the Nighty, like the Seiko Flighty and the Omega Speedy. 馃ぃ

This one is called my WorkHorse!

Honestly, the thought has never crossed my mind.

No.

1 g shock I call the stealth bomber. It looks like something from the cockpit of an f117. Another g I call the Keaton, it's shiny black and with a gold face. Another I call the ufo, it has a crazy bright LED.聽

Hmmm鈥.good idea. Never thought about that before. Food for thought

Not my watches but I affectionately refer to my car as, "The sex machine." It's also the most unsexy car ever 馃槀馃槀

I call my Milgauss 鈥渢he milguiniss鈥
