    Watches are the perfect accessory, they never go out of style and you can always find one to go with whatever youre wearing. I own a Nixon "The Player" and a basic Nixon "Time Teller" for around the house. Not as fancy as some of you guys but they work for me. I'll see if i can get a pic or two up tomorrow.

    Got me a skagen
    Awesome part is, it doesnt have a seconds arm. Also, unlike some other watches that lack the seconds arm, this doesnt make the ticking noise!!! I get annoyed really easily. Moreso at night when im trying to sleep and i can hear a clock downstairs, or a watch in the room

    And its beautiful!! XD

    i wont be surprised if they are made in the same place. if i didn't read the name, i would have sworn i'm looking at my skagen on that website as its identical.

    the only one that skagen doesn't offer (to my knowledge at least) is a red dial watch.

    God damn, that's the kind of watch that I've thought about before. One where you basically tell the time by how little/much is presented.

    You fuckers are gonna make me broke

    I'd assume 10:39 actually since there's two blank spots and 5 smaller blocks per one hour block, and this one goes just shy of the 9th block (which ends at 45) so the highest it could be is 10:40, or minus one = 10:39

    Goddamnit. Looking through this thread really makes me want a watch but I don't really want to put up with the annoyance of it pulling on my arm hair. And they are a bit pricey for something I'm not sure I'll wear. Maybe when I get a full time job after school and need to look fancy.

    No self respecting dude shaves his arm hair, that just screams of crazy. I had a gym teacher who used to shave his legs in his mid-40's and that was just weird as well.

    that, or adjust the strap so it sits right on your skin and doesn't move around...

    i'm fairly lucky as my arm is not that hairy. my friend on the other hand, his left hand is almost bare of any hair, while his right hand is a massive bush. his watch constantly keeps tugging at it...looks kinda funny

    though, i dont get why he wont wear a leather or a non-metal band

    I shave my right arm now. It makes the colors and line definition more visible.





    You guys are the only ones who know, don't tell anyone.

    Tbh, if you wear a watch long enough, it'll erode/pull out all the hairs it comes in close/regular contact with.

    It's worth it imo.

    Decided to get a Skagen off Amazon. I think it looks pretty classy. Even if I don't wear it every day I'll have it for fancy occasions when I get dressed up and stuff.

    Also you can see just how damn hairy my arms are in this pic. :lol:

    For a minute there, I thought I was gonna have to choke a motherfucker since yours looks so similar to the one I'll be ordering.
