    I've always been a watch enthusiast. I don't like collecting them, but I do appreciate a nice watch. I notice people in general don't wear timepieces which makes sense I guess with carrying cell phones and all. Anyways, I wear a Seiko H558, aka the "Arnie" as it was worn by Arnold in a bunch of his 80s movies.



    So what watch do you guys wear? Post pics!

        I'm not really a watch collector, but I used to wear them a lot when I was in school. I had to watch the long, slow hours fly by somehow, right?

          I've consistently worn watches all my life, none expensive. First watch I ever had was a Mickey Mouse watch when I was five. I remember getting a two dollar digital watch in the early 80s--one of those big black plastic ones with just the time and date. I thought it was awesome, because it was digital. I got the classic Casio watch in the mid-80s that had the three buttons, which you can still buy. It was kind of high-tech for the time, and my friends thought it was cool. It was the first watch I ever had with an alarm, a light, and chimes. These features only started to become common at that time.

          Other watches I had as a kid--a calculator watch, a Timex Marlin (one of my favorites, but I left in a public bathroom some place), a Nautica (cost the most out of all my watches, but the leather band broke), and a Timex Expedition that got messed up by earth magnets that I put into my pocket.

          I've never had a really nice, expensive watch. My current one is a cheap Casio Illuminator with a ten year battery, which I have had for 7 years.

            I used to wear a couple of different watches in the 90s as a kid like a Timex and Guess watch on special occasions.

              I used to wear a Casio G Shock and those are bullet proof.

                In the 80's I wanted the Dick Tracy watch.

                  Just picked up a Casio CA53W today, almost identical to Marty McFly's watch in BTTF.

                    This is too funny. My new classroom has no clock yet, so I am probably going to get a cheap wristwatch to wear until mine comes in. I am not a jewelry person in general, so I hate wearing extra stuff.

                      I stopped wearing one because I got sick of people always asking me what time it was. :P

                        It seems that few people wear watches today, because we all have cell phones. But I still prefer to wear a watch. I find it much more convenient to check my watch, rather than having to dig my phone out of my pocket. Also, at my job, cell phone use is strictly prohibited in all work areas. I've seen people suspended or even fired after their phones rang during working hours. I rarely even take my phone to work, because I fear that I might use it during a break and forget to turn it off. If anyone wants to contact me, they can shoot me an e-mail or call and leave a message. All my friends and relatives know my work hours. My close relatives all have my employer's number in case of an emergency.

                          I wear a watch, but I agree that that is one of the drawbacks.
