Do You Wear or Carry a Watch?

I've been looking at that brown one for over a year.

This one, too:

That Bambino is an unbelievable value - and terrific looking (I have a black blue face Bauhaus and the rose gold/brown ver. 4 - which keep me from feeling the need for a Presage).

Dress watches are appropriate for my workplace. I seem to wear my Bambino’s to work more than any other of my watches.

Let me continue to be a bad influence ...

Go for it.
The price seems to have dropped a bit since the open hearts and small seconds (neither of which I like as much) came out.

It would be a bargain at twice the price.

There are some beautiful watches in this thread. I would like to enjoy wearing a watch again, I just rarely if ever need one. My phone, while not elegant in any way, is infinitely more useful on a daily basis.

I never look at my phone for the time...its there I know it will display the time...I just am used to looking at my wrist when I want to know the time. I had the same issue when I carried a pocket watch...kept looking at my wrist. Also a watch is like a pocket knife. I like to wear a different watch each day and carry a different knife...just makes it interesting to change it up some

This, absolutely!

Although, when I come home from school, on days when I’m puttering around the house working on things or doing “chores” I’ll change into “work clothes,” put on a beater watch and typically stick the same, old Schrade gunstock trapper in my pocket. The watch and knife show some wear and I don’t mind a bit if they pick up some more.

I’ve been looking at my wrist to see the time and reaching into my pocket for a folding knife for so long I feel “undressed” without either of them.

Watches and knives are a bit like pipes. I have “beaters” and special (to me - nothing particularly expensive) watches, knives and pipes. I don’t mow the lawn, work around the house, walk the dog in the woods or go fishing with any pipe I’d hate to break or lose. But when I “dress up” I like to carry a nice pipe, wear a nice watch and carry a nice knife. When I was able to smoke at work I’d often take something special up to campus to show to a colleague who’d do the same.

Variety. Beauty.
The spice of life.

(And, I firmly believe, expressions of Divinity.)

I am now the proud owner of Cleon's Bambino. :pipe2:

This photo doesn't begin to capture the beauty of this watch. I'll try to get a better photo up later in the week.

That was a heck of a snag for a nice dress watch.
