Well, most times just skin and hair. I can't remember the last time I wore a wristwatch, or even cared to. I did get a gold colored watch when I retired and I think the battery has worn down on it if I can even find it.

When I decide to wear a wristwatch it's the watch I bought to celebrate my honorable liberation from the US Army in '73 and to take the place of the chronograph I lost in my shipped belongings. It's an Omega moonwatch (speedmaster pro'). It's in the safe and stays there. The band wore out long ago and I have it on a web band to help protect the crystal.

Some may not know what this is, it's a wind up and has an escapement mechanism.

A Luminox diving watch. I alternate it with a 30-year-old Seiko Sports Chronograph that keeps perfect time (2 seconds/month).

I rarely wear a watch anymore. I got a nice self-winding one from my company when I hit 5 years with them, but when I wear watches I find myself taking them off to type. Which I do constantly.

I sometimes carry a pocket watch but mostly just use my phone.

John, I have that exact watch and love it! Though sadly, the movement failed a few years ago. Your post reminds me to explore the feasibility of having it replaced - if it's worth it.

Don't wear a watch most days, but if I'm dressing up it's a '61 Bulova.

I'm currently not wearing any watches. I inherited some of my Dad's watches. One them was an Omega, from the 70's. That I would like to have fixed.

Thank you. I very briefly fell victim to WWAD and picked up about 4 nice watches. I do not dare visit the watch forums anymore because I cannot afford that particular acquisition disorder. Biggrin Still though, I enjoy the watches that I did acquire.

Hehe. Sounds like how I cured my SBAD, I picked up watch AD. I don't recommend the cure to anyone, stay with shaving, much cheaper AD to have Smile
