    The 6138 UFO is my favorite but those turtles are sweet too. Good job.

    Another observation: I was at a committee meeting 3-4 years ago and there were about 40 people in attendance. It was a mixture of engineers and professors. The ages were pretty well distributed between 30 and 80.

    There were very few watches. Almost every person with a watch was a professor.

    The engineers look at their computer screens all day. The time and date are prominently displayed at the bottom-right of the screen.

    A professor in front of a class or speaking at a conference typically can't see a clock. It looks ultra-unprofessional to check a phone in the middle of a public speaking event.

    Always. Have a bunch, mostly either G Shock variations or the Timex equivalent. I do have some expensive ones, but only rarely wear them.

    Except when sleeping, yes.

    Mostly Apple Watch these days, primarily Omega and Seiko divers otherwise.

    Mostly a Garmin Fenix 6. When I want to spruce things up a bit I break out the Seamaster

    I worn a NY Yankee watch when I was about 8-10, never worn one since.

    No rings, no earrings, no nipple piercings, nothing.

    Thanks! It is definitely very eye catching, but it's actually the 'Nemo' Turtle - the blue looks black in that picture as it's a pretty dark shade - this one shows it a bit better (at least here if you look closely around the five o'clock area you can tell it's not black):

    That said, the orange SRPC07 Samurai is definitely on my 'want' list, too. The damned things are like Lay's potato chips - you can't have just one!

    1911's are old school, still very useful. Ar-15's are old school still very useful. Manual transmissions, still prefer them. Quite frankly cars are old school. Couldn't live without one. I suppose you are too cool to carry a pen either.

    Young people are prepared for very little. They panic if there is not power or internet.

    I used to but not any more. I work in a lot of dirt and grime and would not remove the watch first. Then the buttons would no longer work (Timex Ironman series). I rely on the cell phone, computer screen and various clocks around the house.

    Poll too limited.

    I only wear a watch because it is a smart watch that does many things. I would not wear a regular watch, it is not 1987.

    Since I have become indoctrinated to stare at my phone every 2 seconds anyway, I don't need a watch.......................just kidding. I wear a watch and do not have a "smart" phone.

    I'm surprised the numbers for wearing a watch weren't higher. I'm not a millenial and don't live my life with my IPhone (that I don't use a lot) in my back pocket. It's not as fast as looking at a wrist watch and leaves you vulnerable to the smart phone falling out and getting damaged. Don
