Question BMWs and Watches. Are You An Enthusiast of Both?

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMWs and Watches, Are You An Enthusiast of Both?
337
COMMENTS

BMW enthusiasts and watch enthusiasts often fawn over each for their style, craftsmanship, engineering, and luxury. So are you an enthusiast for both?

If so, share with us your BMW and watch of choice... no matter old, new, inexpensive or expensive.

Also, have a look at BMW's presence at "Inside Basel-Geneva" 2012, the most exclusive watch fair in the world. Watch collector Jeff Kingston describes his passion for mechanics and explains the natural link between driving pleasure and the joy of high quality watches. "Watchtime" Editor in Chief Joe Thompson explains why his readers have a natural interest in luxury and high end cars like BMW.

I like watches! Problem is I don't have enough money to support both habits so my Bimmer wins out!! I've got a Omega Seamaster Professional!

I have two ss Rolex Daytona's as well. Black for work attire and white for casual. Great watches to wear everyday and a look that never gets old. Something my kids will want to wear when handed down to them. My F10 M5 and 997.2 GT3RS go well with them too .
