So what kind of watch does everyone wear?

    Watches have become just as weak of a point for me over the years as guns.

    I have had 2 Breitlings. One Chrono SuperOcean and a Navitimer World (The Navitimer was just recently sold) and this past week I picked up a brand spanking new 2012 SS Rolex Submariner Date. I also have a Luminox 3081.BO for the manual labor.

    Anyone else with a similar addiction? I would love to know I'm not the only one with a second ridiculously expensive hobby.

    Nope, we all hate watches. Yer on your own pal. I've never ever seen a watch thread on GT.

    No knife threads either. Sorry to disappoint. :)

    Either no watch at all, or $20 Casio.

    Seiko divers watch, bought 1990. Keeps perfect time. Excellent. Also a Sekio Chronograph purchased in 2010. Again... simply excellent watch.

    I can't stand wearing a watch.

    If I did wear one, I would have to wear one on each wrist to remain symmetrical and not be unbalanced.

    It doesn't feel normal to wear one on only one side of the body.

    I know it's been done before, but I hate reviving the dead.....

    Just happy as a pig in manure that I finally picked up the Submariner (which is what I have always wanted, but never could work up the nerve to drop the coin on.)

    Casio G-Shock, Luminox Time and Date, Tag F1, and lastly a Breitling Colt GMT. One or two others in between...

    Timex Ironman Oversize. It's not nice, overly useful or particularly comfortable but I liked how it looked and for $40, I'm going to wear it until something happens to it.

    iPhone 4S, soon to be 5, or a cheap but decent Fossil for when I have to have that second hand.

    I love watches & I need to get my grandfathers pocket watch fixed but I rarely wear one.
    I work in construction and watches get beat to hell.
    I stopped wearing one when I started being required to carry a cell phone (no it's not a "Smart Fart Phone"). I use the phone as little as possible but I'm on call 24/7 so I don't need to have a watch.

    My Rolex submariner was my 21st birthday gift from my dad. He received in 1970 as a gift from the members of the country club where he was the head golf pro. I've only worn it a few times as I'm too afraid of losing it being it has a ton of sentimental value. I rely on my phone to tell me the time.
