Many people just throw stuff away without fixing it, or attempting to fix it.
A guy I work with bought new boots when his boot lace started to fray.
I had the same thing happen to mine. 3$ new boot lace.
He spent 200$ on the same pair of boots.
Cracked case/crystal or torn band can't be fixed on these.
I'm never wasteful that way, if I can legitimately fix something, I would. It's waterproof, once the crystal cracked water invaded the electronics and zapped them. The band is rubber and attached to the watch, it can't be changed.
Would cost more than the $50 cost of the watch to even try, and it still wouldn't work.
I was thinking the same thing with the following thought of "I guess its too pedestrian a discussion about watches for him to jump in....but he actually was one of the first few to chime in.
JW is truly a man of the people.
LMAO, yea I'm salt of the earth!
I'll spam the thread with my (small) collection, I guess. Changing the straps often (as I do) really adds a new look to a lot of watches. I'll spare you all the multiple shots of the same watch on different dead animals.

Omega Seamaster 751 Day/Date (1969)
The DOXA and Seiko are my current beaters (along with a G-Shock). Just got a Seiko aviator watch, too. The two on mesh have Omega bracelets that go with them, as well as some nice OEM rubber straps. The vintage gold one has a stainless (not pictured) counterpart with a textured silver dial. I split about 12 different straps between them. The first one has about 8 different straps, from brown alligator to a perfect blue crocodile. Next up for me will be my first Breitling, the Superocean Heritage 42.
I wear a panerai destro on my left. Like the fact the crown and the guard don't bite into the back of my hand.

I've got about 50 watches as I'm a bit of a collector, the ones I wear the most are my Omega Speedmaster '57 Reissue (leather strap, retro, casual) and my Rolex Submariner Date (steel bracelet, current, business casual). My beater watch is a Luminox Navy Seal (lightweight, battery, rubber strap) which is a great utility player.
Everyone man needs 3 watch types: Sport, dress, beater.

Also, what the hell is with this trend of guys wearing white watches??? I see this all the time now, wtf is wrong with people???
Anyways, I wear a Tissot...planning on an Omega Seamaster sometime soon.
White watches are teh ghey, ceramic, platinum or otherwise. White is a wimmens color, just like cars.
Saw a mid-size used Aqua Terra for sale, thought of you right away. It sold in a flash.
