Default What watch do you wear

Aside from photography equipment I have a keen interest, if not fascination, with two other things. Cars and watches. And since cars are covered by "what's your ride" thread (somewhere), I thought I'd start a discussion about watches.

So what do you wear, and what do you wish you would wear.

I have been wearing the same Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust "Officially Certified Chronometer", in Gold & Stainless, since 1970.

I don't have a wish for anything else. You can see it on my wrist in my avatar!

It depends on the situation.

Right now (casual wear) I have a Citizen Divers watch on. (note: mine is not the Eco Drive as it's older than that).

Sometimes I'll wear my Tag Heuer SEL dive watch if I want to dress it up a bit.

But if we're talking all out dress watch, I wear my Corum. Similar to this one but it isn't a coin face. It's plain.

I also have a Warner Brothers Looney Tunes pocket watch that was a Grooms Gift from a wedding I was in.
My buddy was always late. So much so, that when we talked about what time to show up, we asked if it was regular time or (insert last name here)_____ time.
When he gave these out at the wedding, he said it was no longer ______ time, it's Looney time.

I have 2 watches. Neither of which I ever wear. But I just dont feel comfortable with stuff like that on. When I do wear it, as soon as I get home It just goes on the counter. But in florida during summer, it never leaves the drawer. Get all sweaty, and smelly and nasty under it. But its a cheapy (though decent) polo watch I picked up at a small store in Barrie Canada. My other watch is a pocket watch (always wanted one, but know I will never use it.)

Thanks a lot Al.

I just went and got the others out of the box. The Tag and the Looney Tunes watches need batteries.
The Looney Tunes is easy. I can go anywhere and get that done.

The Tag is a tad bit pricier to get a battery done as it means shipping it out and getting a pressure test done.

I wear a Tag Heuer Kirium watch. I used to wear it daily for the last 6 years, but when I recently damaged the clasp while playing golf, I bought a $10 digital watch with a chronograph that I wear when playing golf or taking a daily walk with my wife.

I have a Rolex Submariner that was a hand-me-up (from younger brother) that I sometime wear when I go out and consequently always have to readjust the time/date. I have Mio sport watch that tracks heart rate when I go running. Besides these two I have watches that I kept from all the way back to grade school when I got my first watch as a birthday gift.
