    Do you wear a watch?

    Also, if you do wear one what watch/es do you have?


    Alternatively, because I'm sure it will get brought up, if you don't wear one why do you think it doesn't make sense that people wear watches? Which will likely revolve around, I'm tethered to my cell phone or why would I want to know what time it is.

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    I would wear my really nice Fossil watch more often if it didn't bug the hell out of my forearm when typing.

    Do high end watches hold their value?

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    Every day. I have 3 that I rotate pretty regularly, 2 Skagens and 1 Accutron.

    Going on a trip to Germany/Switzerland in a couple weeks and I already have my "watch budget" set. It is probably more than a lot of people would be willing to spend, but isn't that much for a nice watch.

    There is depreciation, just like anything else, but usually they don't do too bad.

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    I have a Citizen Eco-Drive that I wear almost daily. It is nice that I never have to change a battery. I have some others but the batteries are all dead...

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    A nice watch is a must anytime I want to look well-put-together, which means at work and when I’m out on the town.

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    Everyday, my arm feels weird without it, like it's too light. Faster than pulling out my cell phone to see what time it is.

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    I think another good addition to this is "How old are you?" That seems to be a big determining factor a lot of the time.

    A Seiko SNDA65 on a NATO strap for me.

    Also, have a black Skagen I wear much less frequently.

    Re: Do you wear a watch?

    I hate having things on my wrists, hands or fingers if at all possible to avoid it so never. Of course I use my cell phone, or look to the bottom right of my screen. If I don't have a clock around, I probably don't care what time it is, so the OP covered my bases. Only thing I'd ever wear is a wedding ring, if/when that day comes.

    My next watch will be a Luminox also. I don't live with my phone in my hand so the watch is still best for me.

    I like wearing one. It helps keep the phone in the pocket, and seems somewhat I guess. I have a Wewood watch.
