Haven't worn one for a while, went through the fit bit phase now if I need to know the time I look at my handy.

Have two wrist-watches. In 1970 I bought an Omega "Dynamic" whilst in Gibraltar. Still keeps reasonable time, gaining about two minutes a week. About three years ago I bought another Omega, this time the modern "Dynamic" chronometer. This one gains about a minute a month which is about as good as it gets for a mechanical watch.

I always wear a watch. Treated myself to a TAG Heur when I got made redundant as I’d always wanted a TAG watch.

Never worn a watch in my life. No reason. But, it just shows me how much my relatives take notice as I have a cupboard full of ' watch ' Christmas presents from past years.

Always wear a watch, always on my left wrist, which seems to be the norm for right handed people.
Favourate watches are made by a Danish company called Skagen possibly because they are mostly very slim and not clttered with needless dials and knobs.
One of my mates never wears a watch, but if out he will ask people at least every half hour what the time is.

Ditto though for me it is probably nearer 40 years.

I used to wear a pocket watch to work when I wore three piece suits.

I have a very good sense of elapsed time and often when out with The Boss I will tell her the time without reference to a watch or clock and am normally within ten minutes of being correct.

I wear a watch all the time. My last one cost me a fiver from a charity shop. Had it 6 years now and only had to replace the battery once. I'ts a Pulsar chronograph and good up to 100 metres in water, and reliable.

Always wear a watch on left wrist. Currently a Seiko 5 automatic. Keeps great time.
Also got a Breitling Blackbird automatic for occasional wear.
Just like wearing a small piece of engineering quality.
I know quartz are more accurate but what's a few seconds a week?

GeoffW, `engineering quality`, I think that`s why most people buy something a cut above the rest.

I'd soon break a watch if I wore it to work everyday so for best I have a Dreyfuss which I chose as a long service gift.
If I had the money I'd buy a Grand Seiko over anything Swiss

I don't have a phone with a clock on it. Always have worn a wristwatch. Got two, both Sekondas, one of which I got on my 21st birthday in 1973 which still works fine.
