Nice watch, but I think I will stick to my gold longinines, it's a lot classier, than a plastic watch

No Peggy, I'm not backing it. It would be nice to have but I don't really need it.

It's still a great invention.

My wife was always into cheap gimmicky watches, and they used to last 6 months, i bought her the same Longines, that i have ( except ladies of course) and it been going strong for 5 years.

Mick is our resident watch fantastic, he has a bunch of swiss watches, it will be interesting to read his take on this one.

So when Longines invent an iOS synced watch... I still won't be able to afford it :)

Ken, I was just joking of course.....Longines is an excellent brand and I personally believe that it is not worth buying rubbish. You end up spending more money in the long run. (of course if you can afford that is) Save a little longer and get yourself a decent one. Of course there is always GE credit . :italiamac_pescatore: where you can get hooked....

All this to tell and boast that I have a Tag Huer and had it for 10years and not a flicker of problem.

Yes Pegi. But it's not only the quality of the product. I gave up buying Rayban sunglasses after I lost the third pair, or something like that! My stuff tends to get scratched and damaged pretty easily too.

I agree with you Pegi.

My motto is Cheap is Expensive.

If you buy a cheap alternative then you end up having to buy a replacement when it breaks down and it ends up costing you the same or more in the end.

There has been talk of apple making wearable computers. I think this is a nice idea but a long way from a polished apple product.
