    Back to work Monday....just getting dressed and putting on the suit & tie....

    What kind of watch are you guys wearing today?

    Anyone else agree that a nice watch is staple with a business suit or to the office?

    I have not worn a watch in 8 years. I have a Raymond Weil in my safe deposit box. I use my cell phone. I always seem to brake them. No matter which wrist I put it on. After trashing my third watch in 6 months.

    I do agree. I won't be wearing a business suit today (or an Army uniform), retired 15 years ago, but when I do I have watches for a coat & tie. Also watches for daily grunge wear, beach & swimming, for formal evening dress (in either gold or silver, depending on my other accessories), watches for casual & informal dress, etc. I also have several different eyeglass frames that coordinate with the watches (or is it vice-versa? lol).

    I once had a BF who, the first time we went together to a black-tie event (I think an art opening at the museum where he was the president, followed by a VIP reception & private dinner), he wore his daily bulky black digital sports watch. I was appalled that a gay man with his background, wealth and social position did not have more watches, and none dress. Better to wear nothing on your wrist under your French cuff.

    So for Christmas I gave him an elegant thin analog tank watch with metal mesh band, in silver to match his favorite stud & cufflink set. And thereafter whenever we wore black tie I made sure he remembered it, since we usually dressed together, me doing his bow tie, another thing he inexplicably knew nothing about, previously making do with a tacky clip-on.

    BTW, today I'm wearing a bulky sports watch that's 100% solar, no replaceable battery, its date/time set by radio signal from the US atomic clock in Denver, Colorado.

    No watch, just a cell phone. I tend to be minimalist with watches and use one only when at the airport.

    I actually have a collection of watches from a Rolex Sub Mariner to some really off the wall brands that no one has heard of. My every day watch is a Citizen. I also have a Movado that I wear regularly when dressing up for a meeting. I'm lucky though as I can wear jeans and a sweat to work in the winter and shorts and a polo in season.

    My favorite is a Cartier Tank watch........although it is just a year or so old, the design is a classic from Cartier's early years. It is simple and elegant with a black leather band.

    I've been lucky to have had a nice collection of watches - some very old. I liked wearing them........but alas, they were stolen a few months ago. One that was fun but too big was a Seiko diver's watch..........it had so many things on it that I never even learned to use!

    None... my Great-Grandfather's watch (the Hamilton) is nice and safe, however, in a SDB.

    Alas, most of my really nice ones have been sold over the last years to keep my dubious lifestyle going through the recesso-depression. The two I seriously miss are the Langematik and the Calatrava.

    These days I am wearing this one.

    I'm not a big watch person, but when I do wear a watch it is usually my Marc Ecko skull watch. I wear it on my right wrist which is my dominate hand. I can't stand wearing it on my left wrist!

    I found this watch on Amazon (curious what the most expensive watch was) and the reviews are hilarious. I can't see spending 133,000 for a watch if I had the money-regardless of quality.

    I stopped wearing a watch for a long time since I can find the time on either my music player or cell phone.

    Now I wear this silly watch most days:

    I never wear a watch. I dislike being enslaved to time.

    I haven't worn a watch in years. My car radio, cell phone, and computer, are ALL very reliable time sources.
