There is much subliminal wisdom and soul-age that can be determined by what type of watch one prefers.
Rolex
Patek Phillipe
Quartz
Pocketwatch
Many other brands

Anyone who wished to share it would be informational for me and perhaps the group.
Or not share?

I wear a 1969 Omega Speedmaster Professional.
The watch is the same age as me. Just recently restored it :-)

It's a manual 3 register chronograph and the same watch that was worn on the moon.

I don't wear a watch anymore. I find they get in the way at work(construction) and the crystal gets scratched or broken. I rely on my cell phone for a clock.

I used to wear a watch, (many years ago) but I can't stand them now.

It's not just watches, I don't wear rings, chains or jewlery of any kind, and I won't carry a cell phone or even a wallet.

I never have to be anywhere at a particular time and I don't need to know if it's day or night or even what day of the week it is. Screw that........

Time keeps tickin' if I keep track of it or not.

The last watch I had was a Casio Data type watch that could store 50 phone numbers and had a calculator. It was pretty good because I'm #ty at math and even forget my own phone number.

After wearing it into the shower about 10-15 years ago, I never got another one.

I wear a Fossil, very reliable never had any problems with it, but I only usually wear a watch if I am going to be out all day or I go out on some formal, not sure why, just what I've always done, otherwise i use my cellphone. Which im sure is a now very common thing.

Fortunatly I have no need for a watch any more as being selfemployed; time isn't a factor. But if anybody has any old Rolexes or Patek Phillipes to donate to me I would wear one with pride. The rectangular, gold Patek Phillipe oozes with style!

Wear no watch. Haven't in years.
Last one I had was a Guess.
Don't miss keeping track of time either.

Anything less than $100 Bucks. People who WASTE anymore on something that simply tells time is a dodo, no matter what name is engraved on it.

I had this friend once who was soooo proud of his Rolex. He always would hold it up and say "look at that movement, it sweeps..blah blah.." I would simply reply: "Look at my Citizen, it says the same time as yours..."

Skippy, Skippy, Skippy

A Ford Escort will get you from point A to point B,

A Mercedes 300 SL will also get you from point A to point B.

I drive a beat-up old PU but I would rather drive the Mercedes.

I would rather tell time with a Patek Phillipe; that is if I needed a watch.

It's just Style, design, with a little eliteism thrown in.

Oh yeah, McDonalds provides calories, I'd rather go somewhere, where there isn't a bunch of bawlin kids. We all have different tastes.

In my mind, you have your Rolex's and your Omega's. When I think of a quality time piece, I think Breitling. For aviation purposes, there really is no other watch that compares. For every day wear, well, the Breitling brand is certainly renowned. Besides being a quality chronometer, it also looks amazing. I really can't say anything about this watch...if you don't know the Breitling brand well, then, you just don't know fine time pieces.

None. Watches don't work on me for some reason, which is probably a
blessing in disguise!

You need a wind-up watch... I'm right there with ya, hehe...(and I'll kill a digital in days)...

I love my watch, and wouldn't trade it for the most diamond-encrusted Rolex in the world (well, except maybe to sell it, hehe...).

My wife got it for me the first Christmas we were together (before marriage). It's a Franklin Mint Dragon watch. Gold and silver, with a ruby eye. It really screams "me", but at the same time is very classy and elegant. You'd have to really look at it to notice it's actually a dragon, and not just an executive gold and silver watch. Its truly a beautiful piece, and so far, I haven't killed it. Its also durable as hell.

Casio Databank with Easy-Rec for voice memos:
www.walmart.com...

(that doesn't have the easy-rec options)

And yes, I use it. Voice memos and I use all the other little things such as the phone database, make use of world time when I travel, etc, etc.

...and then there's the geekiness factor....

Amory's is a geek timepeice that tells time in binary.

It's very interesting to see the differences between the watch choices for the men posting on this thread and the women posting here. I'm sure we've just got the "small sample" factor going, but it's still rather interesting.

Wear this watch and you'll have to beat the ladies back with a stick.

I know well this watch, but very few outside of serious divers and pilots choose this one...I would know what type person you are if I saw you with that on..A SIRIUS person...

Wonderful choice, pass it on down to your son or someone you love well.
Working on Omega's is a pleasure...
