, 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.
Casio G-Shock or Tag Heuer two tone Pro 200 until I can afford a Rolex.
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.
Cheap but effective
Timex Expedition 46861
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.
Don't wear a watch. I'm retired. I look at the sun.

O&W/WCT Precision Professional Diver
2824-2 ETA Automatic movement
Tritium painted hands/markers
Not much when compared to some others' here, but it has worked well for me many years now...
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.
I have a couple of others but most of the time I wear a Seiko SMA 163
Be well . . .
Rolex GMT master, bought in PX in Hong Kong in 1970 for $400. I had it serviced twice in that time first time for $110 in early 80's and last year for $300 !!!! I put it away for special occasions now.
The knob fell off my Luminox today
Just looked down at it and it was gone! It was there when I put it on. Now it ain't! Dang.
Buy a nice watch adn this is what happens. I'm going back to Timex.
Timex Ironman. Best watch I've ever owned -- it's on its third watchband!
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.
I haven't worn a watch in almost 10 years.
Rolex GMT Master II
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.
Marathon Canadian Coast Guard SAR (Search & Rescue) Dive Watch
