do people here actually buy BMW branded watches?

obviously fashion watches, but some of the styles are pretty good. Was given some credits to go shopping and picked up their Limited watch they had on sale.

big, chunky and I think a decent price/style quotient. Definitely not a fine watch as some here are discussing, but I'm not going to apologize for buying a watch with a brand of car I like.

There are quite a few BMW Designer watches for sale on fleabay (inc the one in the pic), all at reasonable prices.

Don't know where they're all made, but some seem well put together for the price. These are ideal for every day use if you don't want to wear your 'Roli' all the time.

Last watch I bought was an Omega in the late 80's and it sits in a drawer unused. Timeless though so I could refurb it and wear it still. Watches for me are a jewelry thing and I'm not that into ornamentation. The most flashy thing I own is my car but I bought a BMW for the BMW performance qualities, not to show my position in society. This BMW watch is a good use of the boutique credits I had and lets me try wearing a watch again for style sake. This thing feels like a rock on my wrist though.

I don't know what folks here do.

Were I choosing a BMW branded watch, I'd pick one of these: http://www.ballwatch.com/bmw/index.p...ons&lang=en_US

Of the ones you'll see there, I like this watch:


All the best.
