    Fun (or stupid) watches in your collection

    What have you got in your collection which is fun/stupid/ugly (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).
    I'll start the ball rolling with two watches - feel free to give them a fun, stupid or ugly rating....but only if you post your pictures too

    First up is an Azimuth Mr Roboto Mk1 - this gets a fun and stupid rating from me...

    Give me a watch that nobody else in the room will be wearing, because Rolex are for people with no imagination.

    Although my wife would argue that all my watches are stupid, I find that these are my fun watches. Some people wear different ties... I wear different Swatches.

    Here is the collection of my fun... or stupid or ugly... watches. Some date back to the 80s and 90s, some are collector’s pieces said to be worth 3 to 5 times the initial price (I don’t know, I don’t care—I just wear them with a smile).

    There's the classic Goofy (Disney character) watch that runs backwards, got one of these when we first visited Disneyland when the kids were little:

    Wearing and reading the watch, provides some mental exercise!
    I'm more interested in the styling of my watches, than the quantity:
    Everyday
    : Contemporary Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Power Reserve 39.5 mm, steel on black leather strap, blue dial with Roman numerals, sub seconds and reserve, 424.13.40.21.03.001 cal. 2627 (2500D) - great timekeeper, but about to go to the OB for a rotor grinding noise 2.5 years out
    Dress: c. 1989 EBEL 1911 cal. 93 35mm automatic 14K and steel on bracelet, slate gray dial with Roman numerals, sweep seconds; early 20th century Hamilton cal. 987s in colored gold cases on leather and reptile bands, sub seconds
    Legacy: 1920 IWC early sav. cal. 82 in original 33mm Cresarrow 14k octagonal case on tan leather strap; 1943 Omega cal. 30T2PC Ref. MI 2317 35mm steel on black leather strap, sub seconds; various inherited and collected vintage wrist and pocket watches

    *blink* I was considering a Rolex Hulk as a "fun/totally out there" watch.

    Lol, some of these watches are so crazy!! Keep em coming!

    Does it make an extra-dry cappuccino? If not, then it is indeed shameful, and I love it!

    I don't have an actual collection but this resides in my dresser.

    I inherited that from my brother in law who was tragically killed by a distracted driver. He lived in Colorado Springs and was a huge Broncos fan. I bought him that watch to go with his game day costume. Me? I'm a Broncos guy too so it has a good home here.
