Must be mad to wear a watch and ruin a good tan, however I've never been one for jewellery Plus at work I'm to busy to worry about the time every five minutes, so I only check on the computer as and when it is necessary.

Since the mid 80's I have worn Casio Databank/Calculator watches. At one point I had to import them from the US as they were not easily available here as they went out of fashion. I was finding it hard to get a replacement straps for one of them last year, and then found a new version, with slightly bigger display characters, which is good as my eyesight gets worse with age. Wink I lost illuminated buttons of the previous version I have, but along with the larger numbers in the display, and the same functionality, it also has a 10 year battery! Previous versions have had 18-24 month batteries. I always find it funny with these smart watches having to be charged everyday. lol I get a lot of features for minimal power usage. Wink

I don't think I have had a watch off for more than a few minutes in daylight since the mid 80's. I find it amusing when I see the white area of skin, and can see how much 'tan' I have throughout the year. lol

I wear a watch, and I use it very much when shooting. My favorite time spent doing photography is shooting rather than sitting at a desk or anything else. So, deeply to I get involved that time goes by unnoticed. I have to keep reminding myself to watch the time in order to make the last bus.

I wear an old mechanical watch - when I remember it. The "luminosity" on the hands no longer glows in the dark but it keeps reasonable time. I really don't need to know time to the exact minute. Even before retirement, that accuracy wasn't needed as I always tried to arrive at least 10 minutes early. [A slight problem as my wife likes to arrive 5-10 minutes after the appointed time!]

I like to wear a watch but the strap has been broken for the last two months and, not to put too fine a point on it, I haven't been bothered fixing it. I do like to have it though for keeping an eye on upcoming appointments and also for pacing when running.

I used to collect all kinds of mainly funky watches, most of which I still have, but stopped wearing them when I didnít have a 9-5 anymore. Now I just wear fitness trackers/watches as I teach exercise classes nearly every day and swim at least 4 days a week. Plus Iím always running late (no pun intended) so I definitely need to know the time 😱

I have a couple of decent-ish Longines watches, and a cheap but nice-looking Rotary. I certainly don't wear a watch ar home! Tongue

I do carry my mobile with me when I'm out but I don't find it convenient to pull the phone out of a pocket to check the time. A quick glance at a watch on my wrist is so much more civilised! Grin

Sometimes - when I remember to put it on, but the plating is wearing off around the bezel (?) on the last one I bought so it looks real cheapo - not in keeping with my imageBlush I tried t convince SWMBO that batteries were impossible to find for it, but no dice. Life is toughSad

I bought a £3 gold watch and bracelet from China through Amazon. Somebody during the 'Slow Boat From China' delivery must have believed it , because it disappeared en route. Sad All that glitters is not gold! Grin

The cost is being refunded to me, I have been told.

I bought a reasonably decent one from Argos, delivered to me within 3 hours.

However, having said that, the one I bought from Amazon a year or so ago, for 1p plus £2.99p postage is still going strong and keeping good time.

I might add that my own' image' is somewhat latent, and yet waits to be developed Wink
