    Watches seen while on vacation.

    Hello All,

    I just got back from my honeymoon at Walt Disney World.

    Durning my 7 day 6 night stay there, I could not help but to look at the watches that people were wearing.

    The only good times that I could get a good look at the watch was when I was either in a line that snaked around or during the times, that I was riding a bus to one of the theme parks.

    These are some of the watches that I can confirm:
    2 Rolex Submariners
    1 Invicta Sumariner 8837
    1 Skyhawk A-T - believe in SS. It was bright silver telling me not the TI
    1 DW-5600C - the gent sitting next to me on the plane coming home had one on and it it needed a new bezel.
    1 Mr Giez while in line to ride Test Track. I could not tell which model it was. It was all one of the all black.
    1 Bond Seamaster
    1 Orange Monster - on bracelet
    1 Black Monster - on bracelet

    Of note, there was person in the building that I work in that sports a G-9000. I saw the red buttons and asked if it was a mudman and he said that his sister got it for him for X-mas last year.

    I brought with me my GW-9200 on strap adapters with a Casio Hyrid strap and a G2300 with strap adapters and a Casio Hybrid strap.

    So I was wondering, what watches have you seen on while on vacation?

    The two best places for watch-spotting while on vacation in Orlando are at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and at the Villas Of Grand Cypress Golf Resort.

    Nice spotting. I hope you saw much more on your honeymoon vacation then other people's wrists.

    I have not been on vacation for a while now, so I can report of anything for now.

    Interesting info! Living in Hong Kong now, I often "watch-gaze" because people in Hong Kong love their watches. However, most people are into Swiss mechanicals. The most common watches on guys, without a doubt are Panerais nowadays, overtaking the second most popular watch the Rolex Submariners and GMTs...I think you can say literally 4 out of 10 will have one of these two types/brands of watches.

    On women, one of the most popular watches are the chanel ceramic watches that come in white...or knock-offs or spin-offs with that look.

    This is of course a generalization, as to be fair, in certain areas you just get a ridiulous variety of nice watches from JLCs, APs, IWCs, Glashuttes...

    One thing I know though is I might be the only one who sports a Nixon occasionally as they aren't sold here yet.

    In general on holidays in Asia (Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, etc.) Rolexes I see the most!

    Definitely true about the Rollies in Japan. They're everywhere! Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

    Yes, I had plenty of time to enjoy the sites around Walt Disney World. Coming from CA, the one thing that I could not get used to was the humidity. Leave the hotel room and walk about a block and feel like you just got out of the shower again.
