I always wear a watch and if I forget to put one on I am aware all day that something is missing, always on the left wrist, I have a bit of a collection , current favourites are an Oris Bc3 , a Certina precidrive and a vintage Roamer searock

Treated myself to a Tag from money left to me, feels strange if I don't have it on.

I took my phone in to the apple shop to get a new battery yesterday and they asked me to call back at 4.50pm . I don’t wear a watch I was so lost without my phone

Whilst I have a couple of semi-decent dress watches, I tended to wear Casios and a Baby G for work. However, since earlier in the year I have been wearing a Fitbit charge 2. I have always worn my watch on my left wrist, but as I am left handed, have to wear it on my right, which took a bit of getting used to.

As an aside I still have a number of students 16+, who cannot tell the time with the analogue clocks we have in the classrooms.

never, they are thieves of time

though i do own three,

one is a pocket watch, quite a big thing, it has SER engraved on the back, presumably a watch issued by the South Eastern Railway

one is a Sekonda automatic stainless steel wristwatch, bought for me a a christmas present in my youth by my old dad (a good Soviet watch, allus made me smile that)

The third is my old fishing mates watch, after he died of a heart attack fishing boddington ressie, his old mum gave me it to remember him by, ( not that Im ever gonna forget the good times we had together on the bank)

Nearly always wear a watch, the beater is a mainly a so far hassle free citizen eco drive. I have a few automatics for special events. However my favorite is my granddads wind up gold retirement watch.

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.
Youll need it to be water proof as if you beat Sly again you maybe going swimming. 😆😆😆 I'm just saying. 👍

My friend has a very expensive watch and loves it, other mates have them as a dressing up thing. To me I don't care a hoot, I think the idea of them is outdated but a watch is not to tell the time more, I'm not into tarting myself up so this might be why?

The mechanical engineering aspect of a good "old" watch - 1800's is to be believed. My great grandfathers wall clock, keeps to within 1 minute per month, only needing tweaking when the weather gets very warm or extremely cold (pendulum driven). I will post a photograph later. Been going since I believe 1860's. Also have several old pocket watches,; Omega Rolex etc,

Always had a watch. Would feel undressed without. Had a Casio eco-drive for over 20 years but buttons stopped working and £120 to have it fixed.
Have two battery powered watches but got fed up with having to go down town to get batteries replaced. So, just last August I bought a Seiko solar powered watch which hasn't lost or gained since I got it.

For those who wear watches on their right hand, they do left handed watches
