I wear a Seiko Monster. It gets the job done, though it's overkill honestly - I don't scuba dive and would use something better if I did. The wife and I are planning to buy ourselves a pair (not matching) of Rolexes next year to celebrate/congratulate ourselves on our oldest turning 20 (adulthood in Japanese culture). I'm looking at either the Datejust w/ stick dial and oyster band (116200), or else an Explorer I.

I haven't worn a watch in around six months. I really like Skagens, but they keep breaking on me. I don't want some bulky contraption on my wrist.

The kind of chick that'll drop drawers for a Rolex wearer will probably have a dose of cupid's measles.

This. I'd actually have to go look to see what my watches are. They were gifts from my wife but since I carry a cell phone..........

My everyday watch is something like this. Skagen titanium. Very thin and I love the styling.

+1 for an Citizen Eco Drive. I have a Casio and Timex I wear for casual stuff. I almost always wear a watch. Guess I'm old skool.

I use the alarm functions in the morning to let me know I need a cup of coffee, you know NOT a Red Bull what you young whipper snappers drink.

It doesn't feel normal to wear one on only one side of the body.
Do you wear two wedding rings?

Do you carry two guns?

Do you load-balance your pockets?

Good for you and great choice. I too own a Submariner but in two-tone stainless/18K gold, with blue dial and bezel. I also bought a stainless, Sub C for my Son.
Its very strange but you'll likely find many of the same folk on GT that will drop a bundle on a high end pistol/rifle/shotgun/automobile/motorcycle/boat, etc, will complain or even condemn someone who appreciates a quality, high end watch purchasing same. Go figure. Personally, I don't get it.

Very nice . . . I've been considering a white dial Milgauss as my next purchase.

G-Shock. It even tells the tides.

The Okie Corral

(I went through the Rolex phase in my late 20's (stainless steel Submariner). It was pretty and cool looking, and lost about 5 minutes a week.

The Okie Corral

I got tired of worrying about losing it or leaving it somewhere and of having people ask me if it was real.
