    I do. I got used to wearing one way back, and I still find it more convenient and practical than a mobile phone.

    I have a Swatch Skin. It's totally thin, you barely notice it's there. I prefer thinner and lighter models to those huge metal things with bolts.

    So, TEMP, do you wear a watch, and what kind do you prefer?


    EDIT:

    Merged Saiyan Lusitano's thread into my existing thread because there can be only one, here's his first post:

    Is it big [​IMG]

    I want to know what kind fellow TEMPers prefer, lighter, more elegant ones, or the bigger, heavier, more robust ones.

    You haven't got any option of 'Sometimes'

    I wear a heavy metal digital watch when 'out-&-about' , but in work (where I'm an industrial electrician) I don't - for safety reasons (Working in panels with high voltages where my watch could short out on some electrics is NOT a thing I fancy)

    I am never without a digital watch - I only take it off to clean the wristband and the skin underneath.

    I never leave the house without my watch. It's a Festina but one of the lighter/thinner ones. My wrists are too skinny to wear one of those huge watches. [​IMG] I got so used to having it with me, it just doesn't feel right when I forget it. Additionally, I think it's way more convenient than looking at my cell phone, each time I wan't to know what time it is.

    That's the model:

    I always wear one when I leave the house. I never bother inside as there are clocks in just about every room.
