Default corvette fan=watch fan. show me

let me start, this is my Tag Heuer Formula 1 chrono. There was different colors the orange was advertised by Fernando Alonso, I remember Jeff Gordon advertising the red one. Show me what your wear while driving your Corvette.

Very nice watch.

Nothing too fancy on my end. I daily a Tissot PRC 200 Chronograph. I like it because the watch face is fairly small, I'm a skinny guy with small wrists so it looks just right on me. I am interested in upgrading to an automatic movement, but the the chronograph is a must have.

thinking on picking up one of these


Tissot sponsors MotoGP
TH sponsors touring car, indy car, and Chinese baseball
Certina sponsors WRC

I'd like to find something relevant

Actually a clean watch with a Jake logo would be cool.

I picked up this Omega Speedmaster Professional from an Omega factory outlet store in Switzerland while vacationing in 1972. I think I paid about $400 for it at the time and see they are selling for nearly 10X that now. That is the watch that all the Apolo astronauts wore.

Never saw the point of spending a lot of money on a watch.

These days everyone just uses their phone anyway.

you are absolutely right with the phone, although I don’t wear a watch to have time I wear it as a jewel

Thanks I didn't know that. I wore that watch daily for years and had it completely restored by an Omega watchmaker and calibrated about 10 years ago. I haven't worn it much since the restoration but want to gift it to my grandson when he graduates from high school.

Back row: Former favorite, new favorite, and rarely worn midsize (which is for sale BTW). Front row: G-Shocks that I love for work. Hoping to find a lightly used orange Omega Planet Ocean, Tag Monaco, and Shinola auto and some point. Then I’m done, maybe.

Not even close to CFOT baller status. I'm generally a cheap ***, but I do like cars and watches.

I use my OEM Nav unit to tell me the time when I'm in the C6. I'm retired, so why would I need a watch. Time means nothing to me
