I used to think the same thing, then I realized that most successful people wear a watch.

Now that I wear one, I check the clock on my wrist before I look at the one on my monitor, or the dash in my truck. It's just a habit becasue the one on my wrist is always there. When I don't have it on, I feel lost; kinda like how you feel when you forget your cell phone.

There are employers, when interviewing you, will check whether or not you wear a watch. It's a sign that you are punctual.

I know at least a couple of you are going to chime in with "my uncle is rich and he doesn't wear a watch..."

The one on your wrist can keep your time. And if you get a good piece like Jerry it can keep your time very well for the rest of your life, with proper service. A good watch is art and function. It is precision and passion. It is day and night. A good watch is love.

I agree completely. My friend wears a watch but I can understand that.....he's been wearing the same cheap one since elementary school....he even has a watch tan from it.

But why don't people just use their cell phones. The majority of people today do have cell phones so I don't see the need for a watch.

That many? Only two and there was a 14 year gap between finding the two. Right place at the right time I guess!

Well I sleep with a watch everynight. I shower with my watch. Sometimes it is even part of the love making process (O.K. finally done with the 5 minutes of foreplay.... only 30 seconds till bedtime... )

I guess the real question is did you want to know?



But seriously, I love all my watches. I'd sell my jeep before my watch collection (it took way more time, money and work to build)

I dunno about you but just holding my wrist up to see the time on my watch is a whole lot faster and more convenient than pulling my cell phone out of its holder (or pocket), reading the time, and then having to put it back into its holder.

Plus my watch has a rotating bezel timer that I use for timing everything from timing my food on the bbq grill to keeping track of the parking meter. I use my watch's timer at least several times a day

Anything that requires the need for down to the minute scheduling, I'm not interested.

This thread got me thinking about my trusty rugged timex and the three bands i've gone thru (cloth and velcro, easy to replace)

Since i'm not working in the field anymore, its time for something with a tad more class.

So i informed my wife i want this for my birthday:



Nuts to you and your $1000 watches.
G-shock, atomic, auto backlight, black metal band (thats going to take some gettin' used to)
Less then 120 on 'bay.

Of course, if you wanna go all out, you can always get one of these:



It's an IWC Grande Complication. I would give my left nut to have one, they are truely a piece of art and an homage to what Man can do. Starting at around $150k

And doesn't it make you feel good every time you check the time and see that Rolex? What else can you buy that is functional and can give you a little lift a few dozen times a day for years and years? I do wish mine had the datejust and 24 hour hand the newer ones do, but I wouldn't trade it.
