    I wear an Acqua which I was told is made by Timex. I don't know, it's a cheapie I bought at Wal-Mart about 5 years ago. I'm on my 3rd band and 2nd set of batteries. It works so I'm not too concerned about replacing it anytime soon.

    For normal, everyday use, I've been wearing a Smith & Wesson Titanium watch that my fiance got me for Christmas this past year.

    For rough and tumble wear, I have a Timex Triathalon.

    For a back-up piece, I have an inexpensive Freestyle sport watch.

    For formal wear, I have a Movado Museum Piece with gold trim and leather band. I bought it right after my ex-wife bailed out as a divorce present to myself. The watch is great, but nowhere near as great as the divorce. :D

    The same watch that's been there since 1997 and has never stopped running except for a battery change now and again.

    Telux High Country stainless made for the HK International Training Division.

    Tag Heuer Professional series chronograph. Nice-looking watch but I'm gonna get a black-faced Rolex Explorer II or a Seadweller at some point.

    My 3 watches are:

    LUMINOX (about 3+ years old)

    OAKLEY D1 (about 6 months old)

    CASIO PATHFINDER (about 3 weeks old)

    All three are great watches!

    Depends upon what I want to wear. I have several different watches. Some nicer than others. Personally, I like the Omega Seamaster and Speedmaster along with my Seiko Orange Monster.

    I only have two........

    Most days a blue dial Seamaster, sometimes a Submariner 18k, Lapis bezel, serti face.......always worried about beating it up, so it doesn't see much use.

    I stopped wearing a (insert expletive here) watch years ago. It was replaced by a (insert expletive here) cell phone.

    I despise being a slave to time. I relish the times when I am in the hills, out of phone range and not giving a (insert expletive here) about what (insert expletive here) time it is.

    I was told that those who wear watches tend to die earlier. Slaves ot time, if you will. Stress out more, etc...

    That being said, my regular line-up for shooting includes, but isn't limited to:
    Rolex Seadweller
    Kobold Limits A Chrono
    Omega Speedmaster Auto
    Marathon SAR '03 (Which I'm wearing quite often, I might add)
    Both Seiko Monsters (Black and Orange)
    Glycine Airman 2k
    Tudor Submariner

    I've got a few other watches that I feel are more delicate and probably shouldn't be worn shooting.

    That being said, I'm looking for a Lemania 5100 based Chronograph to round things out.

    My favorite is my old Rado Diastar that I bought at a rummage sale for ten bucks a long time ago. They run at least five hundred new, and are made of some metal so hard it can't be scratched at all.

    Lately, though, I've been wearing a Casio Wave Ceptor more and more. They set themselves against the atomic clock time signal every night, so they never vary from the exact time. Something about that I like. Campmor.com was selling some for about thirteen bucks last month.

    Here goes,
    I love watches. Depends on what I'm doing. At work, it's usually Breitling,Tag, Swiss Army or an old Bulova.
    Play, is very old Seiko, a number of Swatches or Concord.

    I hate watches of all types. Don't wear them, don't want to wear them. Same goes for rings, necklaces, earrings, etc.

    No offense but I just don't like stuff hanging on me.

    Oakley (which despite being a plastic digital watch, does not keep good time!)
    Oris Chronograph
    Oris Day/Date
    Tag Automatic

    I don't wear a watch when shooting. It gets in the way for highpower matches and I since I prefer mechanical watches, shooting clays would probably knock the watch out.

    BTW, the Oakley is the only watch I wouldn't recommend. Although it will do just about anything but serve coffee, it's poorly thought out and doesn't work all that well in actual use.

    If you want to get away from quartz watches and wear a (manly) automatic, check out www.westcoastime.com. Ignore that ugly watch on the home page and click on the "military and military inspired" link. The guy who owns the business is a really good guy.
