Well, I don't where a watch and not really into cigars. I don't drink much these days but I do make my own wine from my small orchard. Apicot and plum. Mostly give it away to family and friends during the holidays that seem to enjoy it.

Ok, I will play

Watches:
Hamilton Khaki Field, I love it and it's probably become my main watch, it works with suits, it works with jeans.
Vostock Amphia's as beater watches, they are well worth looking into you fancy some cost effective, reliable and retro looking automatics to spice up a rotation.
I have an Omega planet ocean but it seldom gets worn these days.
I also collect HMT's and use them as fashion watches.


Pens:
Hero 616's, 100's and various Parkers.
(I am old enough and English enough to have been taught to write copperplate with an italic nib at primary school. I went back to fountain pens about ten years to stop people stealing ballpoint pens off my desk in the office)

Booze:
Rioja
Bombay sapphire or Tanq Ten for gin and tonic's
Real Ale if I am out socially with friends.

Cigars
I am a smoker who doesn't smoke anymore, I gave up ten years ago but I still crave cigarettes. I would love to get back into cigars but it would be a slippery slope.

Watches;

I don't do them as I hate to know the time ;)

Cigars:

When i'm at the Casino, Cafe Creme is my choice as I can't be bothered to sit for ages with a Cuban

Booze:

Anything other than Gin but mainly real ale too. I brew beer so make pretty much everything I drink but Maine is one of my favorite breweries here in the US.

@FNM: don't do them????? your killing me...
@Cutterbuck: Spanish wines are great!....they have some heavy hitters right up there with the best (Vega Sicilia Unico)....I have been drinking the reds from Jumilla, in particular a wine called Clio. unfortunately the word got out and price jumped...used to be a tremendous value now its a tremendous wine :grin2: can't drink Gin or tequila for that matter...as much as I would want:grin2:
@Chris: yeah I think we have all been there and done that..some as yourself are still there...spending your disposable income on the "little ones"
soon you will be spending only on the cars:grin2:..and long for the days when they were little again0:)
@Chipshot you sir are an aristocrat:grin2:...some nice watches you have there! and +1 on the coffee....my life's blood!
@neiltyme: good taste in single malt!..I am partial to their simple 12yr dbl wood..and a sport OMEGA is on my list of watches to buy

I'll skip any of the whiskey and go straight to the next "vice" mentioned

I thought I might share the bargain HMT Janata I am wearing today. I do love these little HMT watches,

I think I paid 15 GBP shipped for this one, that is about twenty USD. 17 jewel, manual wind.
