The wrist watch is one of those gadgets and services that lost their popularity due to the introduction of affordable cellphones. Some people still wear watches as a fashion accessory or just to show off! So what about you, do you still wear your watch on a daily basis?

Yes!

For one It's a small but subtle way to spice up your attire, I have three watches I wear according to dresscode and occasion , but most of all it's faster to simply check your wrist for the time instead of having to fiddle your cellphone out of a pocket and hitting a button.

I have my current one (Tag Heuer Carrera) for over four years now, I love it to bits and I wear it almost all the time. I have been looking at new ones from time to time but have not been able to find a better one so far.

   Apart from customary and practical, a watch is also highly dependable. If it does have a battery, it won't need to be recharged every day like a smartphone. If you drop it, it almost certainly won't break, you don't necessarily have to keep it away from dust, dirt and water and you don't even have to switch it off during takeoff and landing.

How is checking your cellphone for the time an improvement on having a wristwatch?

You have to dig it out of your pocket, or wherever you keep it, but usually out of sight by nature. Then you have wait for the screen to light up, then unlock it, then stuff it back to your pocket...

And a good watch is not necessarily an expensive watch. There are some very dependable and fashionable pieces from reputed manufacturers at pretty good prices.

I started wearing one as a small kid, a flik flak. After that, if I hadn't my watch on, I felt weird, in fact I usually kept it on 24/7. Usually it was a Casio watch with many functions.

Then I got this really tiny cellphone, one of the first on the market with a LiPo battery, and I started using it as a watch, permitting my wrist to see the sun for the first time in years, hair to grow back too, and after a while it was putting the watch on that felt weird, so now I only wear one for fashion (which means rarely).

Once they manage to make a "tattoo watch" that pictures the time directly on the skin, I might get one, though.

I still wear a watch.

I have for nearly 50 years. I've tried to go without one and use my cell phone. I made it two weeks and was miserable.

Because (1) pulling my cell phone out while driving, or working - is awkward and clumsy, and (2) it is a lot more work to look at the cell phone rather than a quick glance to my wrist.

I once bought my father a very nice Bulova Accutron, and myself one also. We both quickly realized that the watches were too expensive to risk wearing at work. We've both had watches hit while working and crystals broken.

So we both ended up wearing cheap Timex watches. I replaced mine this past April - with another Timex. The old one had lasted 12 years. I tend to go through two band before the watch quits - unless I hit it with a tool or such while working.

I love my mobile phone, but I simply do not accept that fishing a phone out of pocket to check is ever going to replace glancing down at your wrist. Also, a good watch looks great.

Look around ? Nowadays time is displayed everywhere. When I wore a watch I looked at it all the time, but when I stopped I realized that I knew what time it was without having to look at my phone more than a couple of times a day, so it's not really a hassle. Of course I work on computers, so I have the time in sight when working.

I always wear a watch to work, as I think it looks professional and looks smart with suit/shirt and trousers. I also wear it most times I go out, unless I know there is a chance it will get lost or damaged (I have quite an expensive watch so a little protective over it). I think I wear it more as a fashion statement than a time keeping device as I always have my phone on me anyway.

If I was getting ridiculous (why not, this is a.net after all) a watch is handy to have if you were ever lost as you can use the hour hand and the sun to calculate South (and hence the other cardinal points!)

I wear a watch for the opposite reason. I don't feel the urge to walk around with my phone in one hand and a bottle of designer water in the other. In addition, I go for functional watches rather than "jewelry" watches, e.g. I'll take Casio over Rolex any day of the week.

But the trick that the extra weight of the watch offsets the tendency for one arm to be longer due to it being the one you scratch yer a** with (so you gotta wear the watch on the other arm).

I wear a cheap digital watch for a few reasons.

Over the summer I needed one because I worked at a summer camp and in front of the campers you weren't allowed to use your phone, so it started to grow on me, and being a student pilot I found it hard to keep figure out Zulu time so I set the second time to Zulu so I never forget, I also use it to help me time my holds and other stuff as the clocks are in different spots on all of the planes at the flight school so it's just easier for me that way.

I honestly am upset with myself that I let myself go 19 and a half years without realizing the greatness of the watch.

A watch is on when your phone falls in the river. A watch shows time when your phone battery dies. A watch shows you the time when your phone is out of range or is reading out the wrong time because it hasn't updated. A watch is on your wrist and can be checked subtly without making a production of it. A watch can be viewed while you're driving/flying/skydiving/scuba diving/lawn mowing/having sex/washing your dog/playing piano all without having to dig out or push buttons on a phone. A watch will last you a lifetime if properly maintained every five or ten years. A phone lasts until the next plan comes out.

Children fail to see the need and utiltitymof watches. Adults understand the need and utility.

The right watch appreciates in value. Does any phone?

There is this one phone that fits on your wrist and tells time....I'm cool with that one.

I quit wearing watches in 1997. Part of the reason is, 90% of the time I don't even care what time it is; if I look out the window and it's dark out, I know it's night time; (ditto if it's light out) I have a $19, battery powered "atomic" clock right above my computer that keeps time to a 10 th of a second; I bought the thing 4 or 5 years ago; it even re-sets it's self for daylight savings time. A few days ago, the original battery finally went dead; (after 4 or 5 years); took about 2 minutes to stick 2 new AA's in it before I went to bed last night. This morning it had re-set it's self from the time signal from WWV, and is back, working flawlessly.

Most of the things I do, I do when I want to, not when I have to. I have to take my wife to the PD Center a couple of times a month, but she keeps track of that. About the only thing I have to remember to do, is to wheel the trash can out to the road on Tuesday night, as the garbage truck comes about noon on Wednesday, and I'm seldom up that early.

About the only time I bother to take my cell phone with me is when the wife and I are going to be in a larger store, then we both take our Trac phones so we can keep "Trac" of each other.

Actually, anytime it's decent weather and the sun is out, I can usually estimate what time it is within an hour or so, and
that's usually plenty close enough for most of what I need to do. So for me, a watch is simply something I have no need for. Usually when I go any place I take the Cube, and the clock in it is always "right on"; anytime I take my iPod with me, it always keeps pretty good time, and if I have any reason to know the time, I can always take the Trac phone with me.

It's kind of funny..........I didn't think of this until just now........even though I never wear a watch, I have a LOT of clocks! not necessarily to keep track of the time, but I just happen to like clocks; until a couple of years ago, the wife used to work 2 days a week at an antique shop, and we always rented a couple of booths there and sold antiques. Everyone who sells antiques always goes to lots of auctions, and every auction always sells a few clocks; I used to buy clocks all the time, kept the ones I liked, and usually sold the rest; I finally bought a few clock books and learned how to work on them. (Most clocks are pretty simple) So in addition to the clock over the computer, (and the one in the computer, there's a clock over the TV, two on the mantel over the fireplace, one on the wall in the cat's bathroom, a coo-coo clock and a "weight" clock, plus two pendulum case clocks on the wall in the living room, and also my BEST clock of all, my walnut tall case clock, (commonly referred to in the U.S. as a "Grandfather" clock), which sits beside one of my curio cabinets. (They all work, if and when I take the trouble to wind them, and pull the the weight down on the weight clock.
Come to think of it, there's also a wall clock in the master bedroom, and another one in the "big" bathroom. (plus the one on the stove in the kitchen !) Damn.......I almost forgot about all the clocks; it would be kinda silly for me to waste money on a watch !

Charley

P.S. I just spotted two more antique case clocks on the book case at the end of the sofa in the family room.

I've always been wearing watches, so it feels odd not having one on my left wrist.

Also, for my part time work (ramp agent), I'm required to wear a watch in order to keep track of which flights are coming in, etcetera. But in this climate, I've got a serious tan line where my watch usually goes, so even when I'm not wearing a watch, it looks like I'm wearing a watch.  

I've also ordered a Pebble Smartwatch, as my current watch is getting a bit worn. I'll see how I like it. A $150 investment isn't the worst thing, and if it doesn't work for me, I'll go back to a traditional watch.

My Omega SpeedMaster professional and Flightmaster have been shown in previous threads.

My work is time sensitive and my multiple computer screens are often so crowded it is quite frequent that a quick glance at my wrist is the best way to check the time.

My phone, an LG gains about a minute a day even when set to synch with the Telco system so is not a reliable time reference(even if I was allowed to have it on the desk with me at work.)

I have worn a watch everyday since I was a kid. Whether it was one of those Casio calculators or my current Tissot PR50 that I adore, I can't remember not wearing one. My dad has always worn a watch and I just see them as necessary, even if they aren't.

Much to the quoted poster's consternation, I love my watch and don't want to replace it, even though I can afford a more expensive one.

Actually, both arms rarely weigh the same, unless you're perfectly ambidextrous and use them equally.

Otherwise, your dominant side arm is likely heavier than the other, and even putting a watch on the weaker arm is not enough to compensate for the difference...

I am required to wear a watch while on duty by my company. I don't wear one a whole lot on my days off, because it's nice to be free from the clock for at least a little while. If I'm out and about, though, I throw it on.

I fly with a Breitling Chrono Colt. I love the Breitlings--sophisticated, yet understated--but that's the only "real watch" I own. I don't wear it to show off or to be seen with it, but I do think it makes a statement about me. Sensible, but with good taste.

I would love to wear a watch but I can't because of a learning disability I have. I can't have things around my wrist (or neck for that matter, drives my college crazy as we're supposed to wear ID around our necks). Loose or tight, it doesn't feel okay and it makes me panic sometimes.

Stupid I know, but checking a phone works okay for me anyway as it's always in my left pocket of my jeans and nothing else is ever in there (apart from car keys on the odd occasion).

Even though I do not usually wear a wristwatch, here's an exception:

A colleague gave me a Casio Photo/Video wristwatch which has a discrete 1-megapixel camera built into the front side of the watch face assembly. It shoots both still images and video (no sound) for short bursts.

Before you get the wrong idea, NO, I DO NOT use it for anything illegal or "just_plain_stupid", but it is a neat thing to wear sometimes, as a conversation piece.
The LCD screen will display a b/w image of the image or video clip that you just shot, and although the battery life and available storage memory is very limited, it is a somewhat functional gadget.
The USB docking station allows you to download the images/clips to your computer of choice.

I echo those who wear watches because it is easier to check my wrist for the time than to fish out my phone. I always wear a watch when I'm out. The only time that I don't have it on is if I'm at home, or if I'm out and I've forgotten to put it on.

I don't need nor want a fancy jewellery watch. I only want one that's functional. Right now I have a (sort of) cheap analogue watch with a white face and a black leather strap. I like it, but personally I would prefer a digital watch that could display the time in 24 hour format, but finding a good digital dress watch with a leather (not metal, and most definitely not plastic) strap has proven to be rather difficult. So I'll settle for analogue.

This thread tells me a lot more than just what time it is; apparently, many people seem to have a fascination with watches which I'm certain extends WAY beyond just wanting to know what time it is.

Looking at all of the "similar topics" threads down below which always pop up, I notice that there have been four previous threads inquiring about "do you wear a watch", all the way from 2006, clear back to 2001. For some reason, I find that very interesting.

Inasmuch as I have always tended to be a very curious person, I have always had a fascination with why different individuals do the many different things they do; apparently the OP feels this way about watches. I have the same curiosity about a few more things. Not wishing to wander too far "off topic", perhaps I will start another thread about a few of my own "curiosities"?

I've worn watches since I was a kid and still wear one (and have the tan to prove it). For work, I wear cheap $10-15 watches bought at Walmart as if the battery gives out, the band breaks or the watch gets scratched, it doesn't bother me.

I bought a nice watch by Stuhrling as I wanted a much nicer watch to wear instead of the cheap one I had bought for non-work wear.



Came with a black band and a brown band, so it is two watches in one.

Curtisman (Rep 63); I too have a real Russian Aviator (style, at least) watch gifted to me by a workmate back in (about) 1995 after visting there. I was very thankful and thought it was really cool. But it would only keep time for about a week or so. A local Russian jeweler in Sterling Heights, MI had two Russian watchmakers on staff and they could keep it "running" for no more than a month or so. But then again, maybe my buddy "old Tony" purchased this device from a street vendor and it was of particular poor quality. I need to search my stuff and find it just for old time sake (pun intended).

I should probably resurrect these few timepieces I have collected to at least display them. Again, I haven't had the need to wear a watch in years and years. regards...jack

Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

...and those who can't recognize crucial distinctions will never escape the past!   

The crucial difference being that a cellphone/smartphone replaces a whole bunch of other devices/utilities in just one single device, the watch just being among them at no added expense or substantial inconvenience.

A pocket watch was just a pocket watch with no other functionality. You still had to carry address books, notebooks, newspapers, city maps and many other tools in addition for their respective functionalities.

A watch is a very primitive tool with very limited use that hasn't substantially evolved since its invention several hundred years ago. For me too limited to bother by now. When the last battery change was up on my last one, I just let it lapse since I hadn't worn it for a while anyway.

Repeatedly looking at my watch can be one way of keeping track of upcoming appointments. Having my smartphone reminding me of an impending event simply obviates that need to begin with for this kind of application.

That most wrist watches (notably including most of the more expensive ones) are clumsy and ugly doesn't really help their case either. There are very few that could serve even just an ornamental purpose. But I'm aware that tastes diverge on that...   

Wrist watches are in some way artefacts of an era when life was already based on strictly timed events but practical tools to handle this kind of structure were no available yet, so people just got by with simple watches in the absence of a better choice. Technology has further evolved since then, however, so people have begun switching to tools that are better suited to their needs and habits as they become available, leaving the old single-purpose tools behind (even the few additional functions on some watches don't amount to much and relatively few people use them anyway).

Watches will continue to exist, but where once close to 100% of all grownups had worn one, the percentage will likely continue to shrink as clock functionalities continue to seep into all kinds of technology around us as a near-ubiquitous add-on. It's actually getting difficult to not have the time in view at all times, even when we'd like to forget about it every once in a while...!

When I was at high school, I wore a watch always - it felt unnatural not to wear one. Since I finished though, not so much - though I try to always wear one to work and for formal/semi-formal occasions. IMO a watch is the only kind of jewellery, other than maybe a wedding ring, that a guy can formally wear. Additionally, not all that many of my generation wear watches so I guess it helps to differentiate ones-self from the crowd. There are four watches in my collection (if you can call it that); two genuine and two copy-watches.

#1 A fake black-faced Tag-Heuer similar to the one pictured below. This is my favourite, dad bought this for me at a market in Shenzhen six or seven years ago. I wear it to formal occasions and sometimes to work aswell.


#2 A fake white-faced Tag-Heuer Aquaracer. Purchased in Shanghai about 3 years ago. I don't wear it often at all because IMO the white face clashes with the metal.

#3 A black-faced Timex Expedition with a black strap. This is generally my 'default' watch; looks all-right and won't cost too much to replace should I loose it or break it.

#4 Generic white-faced with black-strap Swatch. Usually used when sailing or at the farm since it doesn't seem to get scratched, easy to clean and the watch + strap are so beautifully smooth that it doesn't feel like you are wearing a watch.

Other than that, it stated in Grandad's Will that I was to receive his watch (a gold Omega), though this is currently being contested.

I currently have a Swiss Army watch (I got two now) Great inexpensive quality watches, plus you get the bragging rights of having a swiss made watch.

I'm thinking on buying a Casio PAW5000-1 though.

I still wear a watch.

I have for nearly 50 years. I've tried to go without one and use my cell phone. I made it two weeks and was miserable.

Because (1) pulling my cell phone out while driving, or working - is awkward and clumsy, and (2) it is a lot more work to look at the cell phone rather than a quick glance to my wrist.

When driving I just look at the car's clock!  
Quoting Aesma (Reply 14):
Look around ? Nowadays time is displayed everywhere. When I wore a watch I looked at it all the time, but when I stopped I realized that I knew what time it was without having to look at my phone more than a couple of times a day, so it's not really a hassle. Of course I work on computers, so I have the time in sight when working.

Exactly, just in my kitchen there's 4 appliances with clocks.

Quoting David L (Reply 18):
I wear a watch for the opposite reason. I don't feel the urge to walk around with my phone in one hand and a bottle of designer water in the other.

It all depends on what type of watch/cellphone you have!

Also, as a pilot I feel like I have to uphold the stereotype of having over the top pilot watches!

No, I like both arms to weigh the same.

Actually, both arms rarely weigh the same, unless you're perfectly ambidextrous and use them equally.

Otherwise, your dominant side arm is likely heavier than the other, and even putting a watch on the weaker arm is not enough to compensate for the difference...

Good one francoflier, I wonder what would the weight difference be?!

Nice watch, better than buying a pedometer, looks very functional.

Quoting Klaus (Reply 67):
...and those who can't recognize crucial distinctions will never escape the past!

The crucial difference being that a cellphone/smartphone replaces a whole bunch of other devices/utilities in just one single device, the watch just being among them at no added expense or substantial inconvenience.

A pocket watch was just a pocket watch with no other functionality. You still had to carry address books, notebooks, newspapers, city maps and many other tools in addition for their respective functionalities.

A watch is a very primitive tool with very limited use that hasn't substantially evolved since its invention several hundred years ago. For me too limited to bother by now. When the last battery change was up on my last one, I just let it lapse since I hadn't worn it for a while anyway.

Repeatedly looking at my watch can be one way of keeping track of upcoming appointments. Having my smartphone reminding me of an impending event simply obviates that need to begin with for this kind of application.

That most wrist watches (notably including most of the more expensive ones) are clumsy and ugly doesn't really help their case either. There are very few that could serve even just an ornamental purpose. But I'm aware that tastes diverge on that...

Wrist watches are in some way artefacts of an era when life was already based on strictly timed events but practical tools to handle this kind of structure were no available yet, so people just got by with simple watches in the absence of a better choice. Technology has further evolved since then, however, so people have begun switching to tools that are better suited to their needs and habits as they become available, leaving the old single-purpose tools behind (even the few additional functions on some watches don't amount to much and relatively few people use them anyway).

Watches will continue to exist, but where once close to 100% of all grownups had worn one, the percentage will likely continue to shrink as clock functionalities continue to seep into all kinds of technology around us as a near-ubiquitous add-on. It's actually getting difficult to not have the time in view at all times, even when we'd like to forget about it every once in a while...!

My other watch is a decent looking cheapo with a broken band. I'll go ahead & pay the tab on that one.

Most of the time, however, I have clocks all over the place to look at and, being retired, I have few reasons to know the time during the day.

I am the same way. I think I started wearing a watch everyday probably in the 4th or 5th grade and haven't stopped. Every now and then someone comments about wearing one, but I disregard it. I am the kind of person who MUST know what time it is (and, consequently, I can estimate time passage pretty precisely), so having a watch is also a must. Just a quick glance and I get my fix, rather than have to dig my phone out.

I am the king of the $10 Wal-Mart watch, too. Nothing better.    Though, I guess, once I graduate this May from grad school and have to go into the real world, I'll have to start wearing my expensive watch a lot more... ick.

I see what you mean, but I think maybe that's just because that's the fashion! Smaller watches were the norm in the 50s/60s/70s, and you wouldn't have thought twice about having one on your wrist then.

It is true though that I have pretty small wrists. Huge watches look brash and showy on me.
