    Do you go for classic or trendy?

    With my watches, I always have gone for more classic styles than trendy.

    I am extremely picky about my fonts, colors, hands and so on. I've tried to buy pieces that have a timeless quality about them.

    OTOH Some of my colleagues believe that their watches are like tattoos - they represent a certain moment or event and want them to "mark the time of purchase".

    It's not a debate about defining either. It's about your own tastes and whether you mind if your piece looks dated in a few years.

    For me, the only exception had been size. I've got some 36-38mm pieces that I simply never wear because they are just too scrawny anymore.

    I go for what ever catches my eye. It ranges from classic to trendy. If I had the money, I would own a wide variety.

    Tattoos on the other hand, in my view, should always be classic. By that I mean, if you cannot see yourself with the tattoo at 80 then you probably shouldn't get it (I have several).

    Timeless, though I would love to grab one of those k23 welders, they look like they came out of blade runner (trendy).

    Nothing in my mind is more classic than a white dialed chrono, tastefully and minimalist.

    I definitely go with the classic look. I'm not really interested in watches that I get tired of, or wouldn't be wearing in 20 years...or forever.
    Keep List:

    Seiko SKXA35 Auto Diver
    Stauer Day/Date/Month Auto
    Glycine Incursore 100M Auto
    O&W Ocean Master Vintage handwinder
    G-Shock GW3000BD-1ajfa
    G-Shock MTG910DA-1
    Citizen EcoZilla diver
    Hamilton Khaki Officer 44mm Unitas w/custom hands and lume
    Volmax Aviator 45mm handwinder
    Laco 42mm B-Type Flieger




    Wish List:

    Glycine Eugene Meylan
    Hamilton Jazzmaster PR
    Meistersinger Singlehand
    A +40mm Seiko Alpinist, if Seiko ever decides to make one...

    My wrist size - 8"/20.3cm

    I go for classic. I especially like good workmanship and detail on a classic watch. I don't go for trendy, but I also don't go for the stark plain look either.

    Alwlays classic. Rolex Explorer I, Nomos Ludwig, Omega SMP "Bond," and Seiko Lassale tank (white face, black strap, roman numerals, no second hand). My next will probably be a Rolex No-Date Sub. Don't think you can get much more classic than that.

    Whatever catches my eye at the time. Used to have an Angular
    Momentum Retro, which was more than just trendy, it was far-out, to
    my Lucien Piccard, which is classic vintage.

    I tend to go either for classic looks, or looks that I could see becoming classic looks (Omega PO etc). Not so much a preference that way, more that I tend to find 'trendy' watches rather odd looking (trying too hard to be 'striking' etc) or look out of place in anything but the very latest fashions (which i have neither the money nor the desire to partake in).

    I'm a bit conservative (being a nerdy chemist) so I go more for classic. My most avant-garde design is a Yes Cosmo (sort of like the one Adam Savage wears on Mythbusters).

    And thanks go to the OP for not making this another poll! It would've been in the Omega forums, but here we can actually read what people think and why.

    Mainly classic, but if something unusual takes my fancy, I may be tempted
