Is your vehicle and your Rolex a balance

Just wondering what types of cars you TRFERS drive. I drive a little Nissan Sentra 34mpg!!, but sometimes I feel silly driving it with a Rolex on my wrist. It's all about the Watch to me, but what do you guys drive?

Well this one sits in the garage most of the time, but I would prefer it associated with me over my 1999 CR-V that I use for work

I have a sweet Mazda Protege5. So, no, it doesn't match. I make sure not to hang my arm out the window.

I am thinking of getting a 3-series soon however, but that will interfere with my watch collection...

Drivin this, not much of a car guy myself. Although my only highend watch at the moment is my SMP, the fully loaded interior with leather and wood grain makes if still feel a little luxurious. I would not feel odd driving this and wearing a rolex.

My watch is probably worth at least as much as my Honda Civic, but who cares? It's paid for and gets 36 MPG! That means more money for watches!

I ride a bike 24/7/365 and my wife, who also wears a Rolex, drives a Chevy Aveo.

However, she has a deposit on 2009 Honda Fit, delivered in August or September.

During my Seiko/Casio days (about 10 years ago), I was driving a majorly modified C4 Corvette with Greenwood body kit, chromed ZR-1 wheels, Alpine stereo, etc, etc. Saw some SCCA track time. I was also riding a Kawasaki ZX-7 with titanium Muzzy pipe. Then I got married.

During my Breitling days (about 2-8 years ago), I was driving a lifted Nissan Hardbody with 33s on it.

During my Breitling/Oris days (up until 2 months ago), I was driving a slightly modified Sequoia with chromed 22s on it.

Now that I have my two Rolexes, guess what I'm driving?...



A 2007 Toyota Sienna. LOL!! I'm the total family man, married with two kids now. I still had to do the customary wheel and exhaust change, so at least it's sitting on 18s with 50 series tires on it. Although my cars have changed, I still have all of my watches.

I have a 2005 MINI Cooper S with all the John Cooper Works upgrades to the engine, brakes, and suspension. It's like driving a hyped up angry go-kart! It sits on the carport under a cover. I have a 1995 B4C Camaro(6MT) asleep under a cover in my shop. It has 10K miles and has never seen rain.

I just got a leftover 2007 Honda Civic LX that I slog back and forth to work in. It gets 36-38 mpg with the 5 speed. My first "practical car"...and hopefully my last
