Do you wear a watch, or not?

What kind do you wear and why?

Do you have different watches for dress vs. casual?

I can't stand wearing a watch, personally. I feel that my life will be ruled by it if I wear one every day, and I don't want to live like that. But I do see some rather nice ones every now and then that look quite good on the people who wear them!

If I need to find the time, I just look at my cell phone anyway!

I have three watches. All of them are Fossil. None of them have a date on them. I'm an incredible believer in Fossil watches. They've done me well for 8 years now and only had a problem with one. They last long, look good, and always have the time I need!

I have one that I wear to work and don't mind getting dirty. Was a promotion gift from a co-worker. Its got a silver metal band and yellow and orange face.

I have my dress watch. Silver band and a dark blue face. Has a small diamond type stone at the 12 positition and that's it.

I have another one. Grey face or burgandy face depending on my mood. I don't wear that one much.

I own one watch, wear it for casual and dress occassions.



It's a Citizen and it has been pretty heavily worn in the past 5 years... it could use a new band and a cleaning.

I have 2 Fossil watches that have lasted pretty well since I have owned one. The one pictured below being the better of the two. I was hoping on getting a Movado or similar watch when I graduate, I found one in their fifth avenue store that I would like.

This is the watch I wear...not for show at all, it actually has useful functions besides telling time since I like to do outdoorsy activities...compass, altimeter, barometer, etc.

Two watches.

One's an Android which was expensive and has been nothing but a frigging pain in the bum since I bought it.

The other has no brand name on it, and it's much smaller, but more reliable.

I need a new one  Smile

I don't wear a watch, they just annoy me. Instead I look at my phone which is always always in my pocket.

Same here MYT. Used to wear one, but use my phone now, or the computer clock at work to know when to go on my breaks. I know when my break ends for lunch as it is always at the end of Hollyoaks. Its a mad rush to see the last 5 seconds after the credits and then get to desks and sign on before 7

I don´t wear any watch, I used to until graduating from university but after that just look at my cell phone. My biological clock does the rest, and it´s quite relaxing actually. I am however very proud of a watch I bought when Fokker Aircraft went bankrupt and they held an auction, it has a Fokker 50 as a seconds indicator flying around in it.

I wear an age-old blue Swatch. It's on its second wristband and its second or third battery - I'm too cheap to buy a new watch, and it does the just quite well.
