My boat has a clock on it. So a watch on the boat doesn't happen. I have a nice little collection of watches, however. This is one of my "every day" models.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I haven't had it serviced yet (only owned it a few years and it was serviced before I bought it), but it needs it. We have a local jeweler that will do it. I think the cost is around $175, which strikes me as pretty good considering what they want to do a Rolex.

I'm not much of a watch connoisseur, but here's a picture of the last time my trusty, decade old, been to hell-and-back Luminox saw the light of day...



Went to climb back in the boat after that (poor) landing, placed my hands up on the platform and saw--TAN LINE.

Been wearing my seldom-worn Tag ever since and it's just not the same.

That's our thinking too.

No watch, that's what the cell phone does.
Why carry around two clocks.

For boating specifically I don't want to wear something that if by some accident it breaks and is lost forever in the water. If your like me I always have to be wearing a watch, feel naked without it. So I leave my Sub and other nice watches home and wear a Citizen. Its awesome for the boat, its solar powered, radio controlled so the time is always right on, obviously water proof, and looks nice too.

My favorite one is my NY Knicks Ltd. Edition. I don't have a picture of me with it on, but my buddy wore it one night and I got a couple of photos. Name:  boozinbluntinwithflavaflav.jpeg
