Who here wears watches

Just curious to see who here wears a watch. Its not very common for me to see people wearing watches around here... nobody feels the need to when they have a cell phone.

I wear a watch. I have a Bulova that my father gave to me a few years back, and a Nixon that my little brother gave to me last year for Christmas.

Anyone else here wear one?

    Wear a watch? I only wore one when I walked to school as a kid, which was in the snow, five miles, uphill both to the school and back home. And the watch was all I wore. You young people have it easy these days! :rant:

    To add insult to injury, the watch was broken - stuck on 5:00. But the good part was that it had the correct time twice a day - when I left for school in the early morning and when I got home in the evening. :eek3:

    I haven't worn a watch in over 6 years, but my fiance still wears one.

    I use my smartphone/pda for keeping track of the time.

    I always wear a watch as long as I'm out of bed. I am HORRIBLE with judging the passing of time. I need a quick reminder and a watch is the way to go. I don't want to go digging in my pocket or wrestle my phone out of its holder.

    I wear a watch every day except sometimes on weekends when I don't think about it. I feel naked without one. ;)

    I not only wear, but also love to collect mechanical watches. I agree that with a cell phone or PDA it is not necessary anymore but it is a hobby for me and many others out there.

    A watch, with a number of built-in timers to remind me to quit goofing off and get back to work. :o

    I have a very luxorious Timex on my wrist. I'd consider something nicer but it wouldn't really be prudent at work. Shiny stuff isn't very tactically sound and even if it was I wouldn't want to buy a nice watch and wind up with filthy crackhead on it. :zombie:

    I wear a watch pretty much every waking moment. And sometimes during the sleeping moments. Haha. I feel naked without it, and as said before, I'd rather not dig through my pockets. *Shrug* I guess I just got used to wearing one.

    I have several Indian made watch bands, but this one is my favorite.

    That's the second time today I've done that. Give me a break, I'm stricken with fever.

    I wear one when I leave the house. I'm too wreckless to wear anything expensive though. I wear cheap sunglasses too otherwise it will get damaged.

    You would have to say that! Now I've got ZZ Top's "Cheap Sunglasses" spinning in my head.

    I wear a watch 24/7. Although I carry a cell phone I have never used it to check the time. Old school I suppose.
    The strap and casing is titanium and it's waterproof. Has to be with all the abuse it gets.

    I don't wear a watch. I used to have a really nice metal one which I had for my 21st birthday, but one day I left it in the gym and never saw it again...

    I wear a Fossil I got a while back. My girlfriend bought it for me one Valentine's day. I had never worn one before but now it feels weird if I forget it put it on in the morning.

    I wear a Fossil as well. It's been a very good watch.

    That's mine... of course I don't wear it. My cousin bought two, a Blue one and the red one, he gave me the Blue one for whatever reason.

    Spiffy. I like the square shaped ones. I may go watch shopping soon.
