    Arnie's Watch ...

    Arnie wearing a 50 mm, it looks like a U-Boat, but I can't believe he would go so low ...

    Not his usual AP ROO - Any thoughts on what it is ?

    Don't think so - the crown and maybe a pusher are at 7pm, and it is way over 36mm.

    Looks like a U-Boat, maybe a U42 or something similar.

    Didn't Sylvester Stallone rcently depart from his usual Panerai in favour of a specially made 60mm U-Boat?

    There's lots of tackiness going on there. The dyed hair and grey beard combo - just weird.

    Very much this. I especially like the way his hair has been teased into a giant bouffant. :lol:

    That watch looks like a manhole cover.

    The style may look daft, but you have to admit, a guy like Arnie who has a watch box that would be the envy of anyone picks something like this over his countless AP's, Panerai's and Rolexes means he likes it, we do tend to get a bit OTT about the name of a watch and the price.

    He designed The Arnold Schwarzenegger M47-331 Tank Watch in 2010 as a Christmas gift for some of his friends. The watch got a lot of attention and many people have asked where they can buy one.

    So being the entrepreneur that he is, Arnold decided to produce more of the watches and sell them through a website, with all proceeds going to charity. The charity benefiting from the sale of the watches is*After-School All-Stars*which provide free after school clubs across America. There is an emphasis on combating obesity as well as improving*academic*records. It helps around 81,000 children in America at the moment.

    Couldn't agree more. The enjoyment of watches really increases when you start wearing them for yourself, rather than for the benefit of others. It may look daft to some, excellent to others, while some just won't care. All that matters is what the wearer thinks, anybody who looks down on something based on a brand name isn't worth listening to.

    As we know he sported a humble Seiko H558 for many years and I wonder if he still has that one in the watch box. :)



    Supposedly given to him by friend and director of several of his films when they worked on The Terminator.
