Do You Wear or Carry a Watch?

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Do you wear a wrist watch?

Yes. I am a man, you see.

Far more accurate colors on the watch face.
Very happy with the higher quality band.
An old school Cross ballpoint pen, I like it. Just don’t let the boys in the fountain pen thread find out or you will never hear the end of it. :lol:
My brother gave it to me.
I love it!

Great photo. I like all the complications on that chronograph and the orange details. I tend to like off color second hands and details, especially red second hands.

My next quest is going to be for an old school Bulova Accutron tuning fork. My dad used to wear a Bulova and the hypnotic smooth sweep of the second hand along with a quite hum instead of a tic seems very appealing to me.

Hey, durangopipe, I think I'm with watches where you are with fountain pens.

I was jogging and working in the yard this week and while a nice analog chronograph is cool and works and all, it's just not easy to read on the move. And I don't want to bugger the nice ones up so I bought this Casio for around $20. I get the cheap, easy-read digital time/chrono numbers with the benefit of old school analog hands that help me picture the current time in relation to the whole day.

Also, I couldn't stay away from the Bambino. Your post did me in. All of my watches are sport or casual. I did not have a dress watch, per se, so now I do. I got the cream dial/blue hands.

I love Japanese watches. On day I hope to own a Grand Seiko Spring Drive. One Day.
