Just thought it would be interesting to know what watches you prefer to wear, want to buy or just dream about

So far I've got two model: Fossil and Casino Edifice. And here are watches I want to buy, but the most likey never will

One more. Urwerk UR-110. IMO the most creative watches in the world!

I wear none. My iPod Touch suffices as a watch for me when I need one.

The concept of time just confuses me so I treat it as irrelevant.

I usually go for a digital watch with a month/day/weekday option. It helps me remember what day of the week it is...but being a gadget freak your choices are pretty cool looking BeTePok.

I haven't worn a watch for 25 years. I don't use an alarm clock either. The exception being when I have to get up at 3am for a flight. Although, I do have a timer on my fish tank lights that comes on at 6am every day. That is sufficient to wake me up.

I always carry my trusty PRS-350 in my back pocket. When I need to know what time it is, I just open it and turn a page. (prs+ edition with added clock on the status bar.)

Remember what H2G2 said about apes and digital watches ...

I don't like wrist watches, personally. I have had pocket watches, but I prefer keeping them in belt "holsters."

I get the cheapest I can find. The batteries usually last a year. I replace the batteries (not a hard job) and get another year out of them, but the case wears and I can usually only get a couple battery changes. Then, it's time to get a new one. Prices usually range from $5 to $20.

.....I knew that Malcolm X had an almost fanatical obsession about time. "I have less patience with someone who doesn't wear a watch than with anyone else, for this type is not time-conscious," he had once told me. "In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure."
..........— Alexander Murray Palmer Haley (1921-1992) , speaking of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, 1925-1965). From the Epilogue by Alex Haley (written after the death of Malcolm X) of The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley (1965).
I like a digital, but it's not a strong preference. I find that in these days of clocks in all our devices from our phones to our ebooks, forgetting my watch is not the big deal it was at one time.

I wore a Victorinox Swiss Army Cavalry watch for over twenty years, until I broke the bezel in a motorcycle wreck last year.

I would like an automatic watch. A Rolex Tudor or even a Victorinox automatic.
