Wrist Check. Which watch are you wearing?

Do you have a travel watch or do you have a daily watch? Post them.

I travel with my $39.95 Timex. Works great.

We usually keep one of our cell phones locked to "home time zone" as we often can not figure that out - LOL!

I only wear a watch when I'm at work - I put it on when I get to work with the rest of my equipment, and take it off at the end of the day. If I need to know the time when I'm not at work, I have a cell phone, wall clock, or the clock in the car.

At work I wear a $29.95 waterproof analogue watch with a second hand. It's for utility, not fashion, and I want it inexpensive enough to replace if it gets damaged or broken at work. I do have an analogue clock on the wall at home (Ikea), because I prefer analogue over digital (and when I have digital, I prefer 24h over 12h format).

I wear a Shinola Runwell when I'm dressed for customer meetings at work. I also recently got a Huawei Android Wear watch.

I always wear a watch. Currently a Victorinox - second hand, date and luminous dials, with a very classic face and a black leather strap.

I've got a Moto 360 2nd Gen which I wear daily now, having never really been a watch wearer at all before.

For formal wear, I wear either a fake Patek Phillippe or a fake Vacheron Constantin with manual movements that I picked up in Saigon for about $35 each. They are quite good, have lasted many years, and fooled many folks into believing that they are the genuine articles which would have cost $10K-15K each.

For sports, I wear waterproof Casio or Timex digital watches

None. Nada. Nothing. Not for over 15 years. Very liberating.

I have half a dozen Timex Expedition and similar watches. They're practically indestructible and come in lots of colors. It's also very easy to change the time zone on them. I wear a Seiko for dress occasions.

My daughter refuses to wear a watch, she always has. She looks at her phone for the time. I don't like to have to take my phone out to see what time it is. Generation gap I guess.

Longines GMT automatic

i dont know why, but I prefer to look the time from wrist than from phone.
Maybe I just start to be old

I promised myself no more heels, suits, panty hose and watches when I retired.

I put on a Timex Expedition when I travel. It does the job, and is part of my low profile traveling (nothing obviously expensive).

BUT, seriously intrigued with the Apple Watch, I bought one for each of my sons. They wear them continually and love them.

I travel with two watches. The first is a radio-controlled Seiko SPBG003 digital with world time, dual time, timer, chronograph, alarm for flights and casual use. I also have a Bulova Gemini 63B014 GMT automatic for business or dressier occasions when the digital wouldn't be appropriate. Both watches are now out of production but I've got less than $600 in both of them so don't mind if they get lost along the way.

The nicer watches stay at home.

I wear a fitbit for daily use. I have a Casio atomic watch I use for travel. I also have a dual time Swiss Army watch I use for when I wear a suit. Thinking about droping the fitbit , and getting an apple watch later this year.

I bought one of those and used it for 2 weeks. I ended up taking it back since I didn't think it had a killer app for me.

Is there a killer app that overlooked?
