Before my friend, Regularfella, got me into DE Shaving, I had already gone "retro" somewhat by wearing an Invicta self-winding diving watch. Anyone else wear a self-winding mechanical?

Yes -I have been wearing a manual winding watch for the past month or so because the batteries are dead in all of my quartz watches. I also have two self winding watches but rarely wear them.

All of mine are MIDO watches that belonged to my Dad.

My everyday watch is a Citizen Quartz Railroad Approved watch that I've worn for almost 20-years.

I don't wear a watch that often but when I do it's a 1961 manual wind Bulova.

I am the grateful inheritor of my grandfathers old gold pocket watch - I use it whenever I dress appropriately (don't go well with jeans, nor with fatigues Sad)

The manual wind is a Bernhardt and the automatics are a Zodiac and a Jacques Lemans. My quartz watches are Seiko and Swiss Army. I also have a single hand watch (Botta Design Uno)that is cool but impractical and that I never wear.

I have a couple of inexpensive ones that I wear occasionally. However, my favorite watch is a Longines mechanical watch that my sister gave me when I graduated with my BA degree. That only gets worn on special occasions.

All of my other watches are cheap battery operated ones and I can change the battery myself on most of them.

I wear a real nice Rado self winding watch. It has a glass window in the back that sows all the gears moving, I love it.

I have an Omega Speedmaster and an Oris Miles Davis...The oris is in need of a strap. I love them both, but find myself depending on the mobile.

I have a pair of Hamilton 992 pocket watches that usually carry on weekends but they both need to be sent to a watch smith for cleaning and some repairs. :-(

I have a boat load of watches.. Most are self-winding automatics, manuals. I used to keep them on a winding machine, but have since abandoned it.
