    ;) , since getting a Cellphone years back, I've stopped wearing a watch.............., but this thread reminded me to check on what I had. Pocket watch from 1978, timex ticker from 1978, seiko from ?, and the old digital timer in my range bag- noticed it needs a bat. With the digital clocks in my truck, cellphone, I didn't realize I missed my watch. Till Now- GEe whiz, something to add to the Xmas list.

    Gotta have Swiss Army

    I have worn this watch for about 4 years. Been on a couple different continents with me and been through hell. I had the exact same one before this one which I lost.... I also have a fossil

    Benrus knock off. It was $5 clearance priced at Wal Mart about 2 months ago. I got it as a cheap replacement for the watch I cracked crawling around under a VW.

    Seiko Diver SKX013

    It is a midsize diver watch with a black face. No pics yet. I picked it up in Hong Kong for around $150.

    Aquatech digital less than 10 bucks with a light. The watch band (Spidel) cost about as much. I regard watches as expendable as I tend to beat them up, and a cheap watch is incredibly accurate compared to mechanicals we used to wear when I was a very young child.

    Who thought a digital watch with a button and tiny little LEDs was pretty cool. :cool:

    Don't wear a watch. I'm retired. I look at the sun.

    A Timex that I bought in Walmart several years ago for $10. Hope I can find another when this one wears out.

    Well, that depends on my mood, what I'm wearing, doing, etc:


    Left to right: Timex Expedition that I got for about $25 at a Wal-Mart, Swiss Army StarTech 3000 (for sale for $90!), Wenger Dive watch, Seiko Chrono/Alarm, and what I think was and is a cool looking Swatch from about 1985 or so.

    End of the world watch not pictured.

    BTW, when I said the StarTech is on sale, I didn't mean I got it on sale---I'm trying to sell it, for $90. See my post in Accessories for Sale/Trade.

    Sinn EZM3 auto, when skiing. Usually sits in the safe other times. This was a gift.

    Omega Seamaster Professional quartz for the pistol and archery range (to prevent wear and tear on my Auto Pro from recoil/vibration effects)- more of my "everyday kick it around watch". Very accurate, gains two seconds a month.

    Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer (automatic) when not shooting, or when traveling for extended periods.

    Omega Speedmaster Professional ("Moonwatch")- I wear this for "formal occasions" and long plane flights. Of all the watches I have this one seems to get the most questions from people. I try to be careful with it because of the acrylic crystal.

    (The Sinn and Seamasters double as impact weapons if required...)

    I have a Luminox "Navy Seals" for knocking around, Sieko chrono for business. I have a dressier Seiko, but I don't hardly ever wear it anymore and the battery is dead.
