    I voted no, but I wore a watch exactly once since I retired in January. Probably should have said occasionally.

    I always hated wearing anything that was strapped to me.
    Then a few years ago, my wife bought me an Apple Watch.
    At first, I only wore it because she gave it to me, but I have come to depend on it for much more than just a timepiece.

    I used to rely on my phone, but this watch has liberated me from that miserable POS.

    Yes. Pretty much always. I used to wear cheap ones but over the last twelve years I've taken to wearing high end watches. My sleeve often covers it, I just like wearing them.

    I have no feeling on the left side of my left wrist and hand due to a pinched nerve. Because of that, I don't like the feeling of wearing a watch now. I wore watches from early grade school on , and I don't remember any of my buddies wearing any back in those early days...just me.

    I used to have aspirations of eventually getting an Omega Moon Watch because of how much the moon program meant to me, but now, I'm just down to wearing my old and damaged Casio G-Shock when I go out and about.

    Fitbit and when I leave the house and actual watch. The fitbit is wonky and doesn't ways turn on when I bring my wrist up. I hate having to push a button to see the time.

    Seiko Orange Monster every day. I've worn a wristwatch since I was about six years old.

    This one. My wife gave it to me for Christmas early 2000's.
    Had the solar, battery and crystal replaced once.

    Yes. A Marathon Navigator by default.
    But now that the Mueller Russian investigation is history I come out of the closet and admit to owning and wearing several Vostok watches, both Amphibia and Komandirskie.

    Every day for most of my life.

    My buddy at work was the same way. I forgot my watch once and told him, he started digging through his bag for a spare watch. He could feel my withdrawal pains.

    NOT having watch drives me insane.

    Has to be analog. I glance down so many times a day, I can’t count them.

    I don’t care that it 1:58.57. Just about 2:00 is fine.

    I have a Series 3 Apple iWatch, a Rolex Explorer II and a G-Shock. I wore the Rolex (and a previous Rolex Oyster two tone) for about 30 some years. I switch to the G-Shock when training. I wear the Apple Watch now almost exclusively. I like having the time, day of the week, date and temperature available at a glance. I also use the workout app everyday for cardio or strength training.

    It makes me nuts if I forget my watch too. Have an old Citizen Eco-Drive that I wore up till about the fall of 2018 when a post in the watch thread here led me down the automatic rabbit hole with the blue Seiko below. I now have a few Seikos and a few Orients. Lately I'd been living in the orange one, but just a few days ago decided to put the original blue one on again.

    And I agree with knoxrocks, the Kamasus are nice looking watchs.

    Yes, up to the time that I retired. Now, I really don't worry about what time it is.
