eBay scoop!

Found this listing on ebay, just won it. I'm sure you can email the guy if you want one as well. Not expecting high quality for $15 but worth a shot...

Yeah, sorry, meant scoop as in good deal. As I say, it may not be the best quality watch but kinda cool to have one that says Z4M.

Yeah, I know. If it was more than $15 I wouldn't have wasted my money. Worth a shot though!

Not recommended near swimming pools, sports wear, or during hard manual work. (must be careful when wearing not to scratch surface casing

Too funny

I love watches. But I always end up scratching and damaging them, no matter how careful I am. So I gave up on purchasing expensive Movado's etc.

I would someday love to own a Breitling though. But again, paying $5,000 - $10,000 for a watch I'm going to scratch the next day would totally crush me.

Off topic but I think Breitlings are hideous and pretentious

No offense to anyone here that owns one

Bought a Phillip Stein a couple of years ago and a Philippe Starck last year, scratched both and have them in being "refurbished" now. Only cheap watches going forward!

Agree, or I LOSE them. So now I limit myself to $200 or $300 on watches. And actually one of my favorite watches is a $50 item I picked up at the last minute at the MSP airport. There must be HUGE profit margins in those higher end watches. The other thing I never quite understand about watches over the last 10 years or so, is the big attraction to "ginormous" watches. You know, the kind that are so wide that it takes up a quarter of your forearm, and as thick as a cheeseburger. I get that it's "bling" to some people, but just not my cup of tea. Call me crazy but I like my dress shirt to be able to cover my watch when I want.

Amen! I switched to the ESQ brand from Movado. They look great, well built, and you can get them for around $100 - $150.

The best part? After I scratch and break it I don't feel so bad!

Well, sure. So are Ferrari's and Lamborghini's.

But I bet if someone threw you the keys to one you wouldn't say no!

I wear my $70 Invicta everywhere. I love this watch, looks almost identical to a rolex submariner (which is one of the only rolex I like the design of) and I've had it for years with no issues at all. I have a few other watches (all under $100) but I seem to wear my Invicta more than anything else.

That looks like a watch you could have made on ArtsCow.com I ordered one that looks like the watch from GoldenEye 64

I wear a $50 Casio that syncs itself with the atomic clock. Love it. I have worn Casio since I could wear watches and that's what I wore for 20 years as a fighter pilot. If you get it caught on something, the rubber band will break before your hand rips off.

For my current corporate work, I have a Rolex Submariner. Not as comfortable and since I only wear it when I go to NYC, not very accurate. Not worth $7,000.

If status weren't an issue, I'd wear Skagen watches. I have a couple and they are lightweight and thin.

But 95% of the time, you'll find my Casio on my wrist. And I wear it with the face down, not up. Just an old habit from my Navy days, I guess.

That being said, and to get back on topic, I put a bid in for the Z4M watch on ebay. It will go in a drawer.
