My wife took my watch away because I kept reflecting the sun into her eyes while she was driving. It was a Citizen...

I've got the Battery Park $5 special.   I think its a Rorex.

At the Farm, I wear a Swiss Army Watch.

Everyday wear is a Skagen titanium watch. BTW, [b]Lordtrader[/b] wears one, as well!

On formal occasions, a Fred of Paris watch, I kid you not!

Those, plus my wedding ring, are the only items of jewelry I ever wear.

Timex

Its the Camper model I think.  The green watch, PX special, you know what im talking about right?  Everyone buys them in Basic training.  Ive had 2 in the last 12 years.  First one was lost after about 3 years of use, the second has lasted me 9 years and counting.

I wish I still knew someone in maintenance in the military. I had a watch that I got right after I went to permenant party that lasted my whole enlistment. It was expendable so it was free, and it was ordered through our parts girl!

Yes, the Tissot I have is really an eye catcher. It comes in a blue(as seen in the pic), SS,white and a black face. I bought the blue face because I usually am wearing some type of blue and I like to match (No, I'm not gay)

In person the PRS2000 is even better looking than that crappy pic!

If I wear a watch it's normally a Timex Ironman.  Cheap, reliable, water-resistant.

I have an old Rolex Sub that my grandfather gave me, but I only wear it when I want to look like a snob (which doesn't happen frequently).

The Omega Seamaster automatic chronograph is a potential purchase once I start making some money that doesn't have to go mortgage and insurance.

Pocket watch on a proper chain IF I'm going to wear one.

Normally I just use the clock in my Nokia Cell.

Anyone ever see one of these?

You can get titanium G Shock watches off ebay.  They are originally only sold in Japan.  There are many other styles available.

Luminox STEALTH in black...Service Merchandise went under a while back and I picked it up for about 40% off! The thing is built like a tank and takes a little getting used to. You never have to worry about losing it :)

Good thing I didn't send my money before.

You didn't have to click this post. I am asking a legitimate question. I have always worn casio watches, and am looking to see what is out there and durable. If you don't like it tough. And if it is not worth responding to, they why did you? To bring it back to the top? If that is the case, then all you had to do was type BTT.

I don't wear a watch.  Haven't worn  a watch in 9 years or so.  If you ask me the time, I'm usually within 10 minutes of being right.  Though, crossing time zones and daylight stupid time twice a year still messes with my mind for a day or two.

Rolex Sub,

But the Seiko I bought 20 years ago is still tickin!

Rolex Datejust gold/stainless two tone. I've worn it just about every day since I bought it in 1982.

For formal dinners, etc. I wear my father's old Elgin which is rectangular with an arched crystal.

Not to be a smartass or anything, Hiram (okay, I [b]am[/b] being a smartass), but I for one would really like to see a list of [b]1000[/b] reasons of why a good watch is [b]critical[/b] in daily life.

...cuz personally, I can only think of maybe 1, 2 at best!  [;D]

.....being a admitted seikoholic, I wear a  *70's H558-5009 quartz divers 150m, I've worn it for 20+ years w/1 servicing, and a few batteries. I have a skx173 auto for back up. I'm looking for a  divers SBBN007 300m, or a 600m or a 1000m.......what ever pops up with a good price, I'll get next!

Luminox or an old Zodiac Sea Wolf self winder.
Link Posted: 1/3/2003 5:08:25 AM EDT
Currently I have a Citizen which needs a new band.

I really miss my Ricoh but my wife threw it away think it was broken, had it over 10 years. It just needed a band too.

My favorite is Constantine (A Swiss watch) really nice and one day I will have one.
Link Posted: 1/3/2003 5:12:26 AM EDT
Either a Seiko Kinetic or a Citizen Titanium. From the days when I used to travel a lot I need a watch that displays day and date (no LCD panels, please); I've gotten off one too many planes wondering what day of the week it was. [;)]

Tag Heuer 2000 exclusive for me.

I really love my Timex Atlantis 100.  It is inexpensive but not cheap at all.  Battery lasts forever, takes a great deal of abuse, and it is very comfortable.  Best watch I have ever owned (used to just stick with Cassio).
