Always wear a watch unless in bed or in water.

I've had the same watch since early 2002 and with no intention of changing it.

I have 6 watches, all used in rotation. Was up to 18 at one point, but have now gone for quality instead of quantity.

I have a Seiko kinetic which I bought in 1987, but alas has given up the ghost as the bearing for the weight that charges battery has worn out. Seiko want more than the watch cost to repair, so now have a Seiko solar. If it lasts as long as the old one it will see me out Smile

Got about 10 watches, all different. I don't wear bracelets, but a nice watch to accessorise i find very attractive, and useful.

I cant, although I can usually guess the time with a reasonable degree of accuracy.

Unfortunately, I've worn a watch continuously for the last sixty years and I simply can't be without one on my wrist.

I find my hi tech pocket sun dial with folding luminous gnomon very useful, especially at night!Sad

I suspect everyone has to look at the time at some point throughout the day.

I wear a Garmin GPS Multisport watch 24/7.

I gave up wearing a watch permanently soon after moving to SW France 15 years ago, then stopped completely as the batteries died. Thinking of buying a solar powered one (soloing as it doesn't take too much from the lens fund!)

Haven't worn a watch for about 25 years, get by well either by the clock in the car, the phone or fairly accurate with a guess

I carry one in my pocket for those very rare occasions when I need to know the time.

Otherwise, being retired, a calendar does the job Smile

Yes - but I rarely take my phone out with me, and I haven't a clock in the house so it is mostly used to see what the time is when I wake up - maybe I can go back to sleep!!
