Question Who wears a watch these days?

I haven't seen a reason to own one for a long time

So watch-wearers: why do you wear it? Does it tell you more than a mobile?

I’m wearing an Apple Watch, found it’s extremely useful for me in managing my workout process. Walking, standing, expel energy and heart rate.

My wife got one about a year before I did... until that time I rarely wore a watch.

Now I find it rather useful.

Oh yea it tells me the time too...

I do. I have for years. I have two in fact, one black strap and one brown strap. It helps when I'm walking someplace and my phone is in my pocket. And when I'm at work, the phone is on the desk, and the only time I'll look at it is if it buzzes with a message, or rings with a phone call.

Call me old fashioned, I guess.

I still can't part with my Casio watch, bought in 1996. In the 22 years I've owned it, only once did I have to change the battery.

Here it is:



It tells you the day, month, year, the exact time and lets you store 150 phone numbers, has a schedule, calculator, world time clock, alarm, timer and stopwatch. Why would I want to part with that? The way it still works, it might outlive my sorry ass.

I have another watch, a Diesel. It was a birthday present from my mother but it's too large for my taste. Perhaps I should try and sell it.

I don't know why I still wear a watch. Maybe because it's still more practical than pulling out the mobile phone all the time. Or maybe there's some elegance to it?

Casio G-Shock watch, the Mk III version which I've had for years. My very first digital watch was a TIMEX in the 70's and since then I've had quite a few but I found CASIO to be incredibly reliable watches and I am never without one, although if they ever bring out a Dick Tracy style watch where can use it as a telephone and other things I might consider one. I'd have killed for an iWatch years ago but then again the phone is more expensive.

The day i ended school was the day i stopped wearing a watch. I never liked to have something on my wrist anyway.
In fact the latest school years the wristband had broken so i'd been keeping it in my pocket.

In my after school years (the 90ies, way pre-smart phone times) i relied on parking meters to know the time when i was outside, or i'd ask someone if i really needed to know it. Or look at the sun (not straight into it), somehow i'm pretty accurate in estimating the right time, during daytime, that is.

These days i have a cell phone so that tells me the time..

I am a stonemason, my few early watches all died young so I quit wearing them. Now I'm old and don't care so I wake up when I wake up, go to work when I'm ready, eat lunch when I get hungry, go home when I'm tired and go to bed when I'm sleepy. Clock time doesn't matter.
