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.

Do you wear a wrist watch? Do you carry a pocket watch? If so, what kind?

I had to buy a new watch today. Not that you care.
Your last Casio calculator watch finally die? Don't confuse this with caring.
I had a Fossil that died. Now I have a Timex Expedition:

Not that you care.
I mourned when my Casio calculator watch died.

Mock if you need.
Couldn't care enough to mock. Glad I'm not the last man to wear a watch, if you want to be completely honest.
I still wear a Seiko. But those Casio watches were pretty tough, and readily available at any cashier location too.
I have that exact watch...have had it for about 4 years.

Not having a watch on my arm makes me crazy, even if I don't need to track the time.
Dang. I sorta care. I know what you mean.
Me too.
Double dang.

And I wear a Time Expedition as my everyday watch, too.
The battery on my "dress up" watch went dead a month ago and I haven't replaced it.

I can't answer. The poll is badly drafted. I both carry and wear a watch. Usually wear.

Also, what kind is none of your g-d business. Last thing I need is Goose, high on Kirkland-branded scotch and heretical tendencies, robbing my house in order to finance his shank brush purchasing habits. It's bad enough the firebug knows it's made out of wood, if you ask me.

Yes, Timex Expedition. But I replace the bands with nylon or hemp bands with a velcro closure.

I have several wrist watches and I wear one every day...last week I had a very long day and a late night and I got out the door the next morning without a watch...I knew it would be a problem, me looking and my wrist all day...so I drove back to the house and put on a watch. I have a couple of Timex dress watches, a vintage Bolova, a Casio G-Shock, a Casio dress watch, Timex expedition and a Citizen dress watch that my wife bought me for Christmas a couple of years ago. None are very pricey but watches for me are like pocket knives and pipes and...

But I am doing better...no watches purchased in the last year and I actually sold 2 that I didn't wear much.

I like watches. I'd like an Omega at some point. Maybe a birthyear Omega, or something like that. Nothing too fancy.

I hesitate to answer for fear of allegations that I am hip.

I ordinarily wear a 1950s Wittnauer (no Longines involved, thanks) with a manual mechanical movement. It's not shock-proof or waterproof, so I do not wear it when I know I will be very active or possibly caught unprepared in a downpour (after all, who takes an umbrella to a honky tonk?). It's an antique. The rear is engraved, "Don Messick, Bolckow, Mo."

It was a birthday gift from my better half, and it means a great deal to me.

That's no hipster watch. That's a fine timepiece. Have you found a good watchmaker you'd like to share?

I wear a Nixon watch sometimes. My grandpa gave it to me for my ordination

I never leave the house without my wallet, wrist watch, handkerchief and a pocketknife. Absent any of these things I would likely feel strange.

My wedding ring never comes off.
My cell phone is often left behind.

I wear the Timex Expedition daily, and a not terribly expensive but more formal, rectangular, gold-tone dress watch by Lotus (now decades old and no longer in their catalogue) for more formal events.

As I haven't attended a formal event in a while, the battery on my "dress watch" that went dead over the summer hasn't yet been replaced. We have a watch repair shop in town. The man who runs it replaces watch batteries for the cost of the battery.

This is the exact model I bought: Timex Men's TW4B065009J Expedition Scout 43 Tan Leather Strap Watch.

I bought it for $41 at Wal-Fart. I like the light-up dial.

You just gave me a sad. I no longer carry a pocket knife, useful thing that it is, because of metal detectors in the courthouses.

I only own one watch. Its a really nice one and was my father-in-law's. I still love timex watches. They do take a licking and keep on ticking.

I do not wear a watch and haven't for a very long time. I prefer to navigate life without the oppressive rule of time.

My local place is authorized to repair many brands, but will only repair modern models and want anything old to go to the company that made it. That's nice unless you have a Longines pocket watch worth about 40 bucks that isn't worth sending back to Longines.
