    I see so many websites marketing watches. With the advent of cell phones I thought watches were passé. Now I'm considering purchasing one.
    It seems like the "watch" deals sell out all the time. I'm curious how many people actually wear watches. Do you? If so, is it strictly for business, for fashion, or for function?

    For myself, I wear a watch. Mostly they are for telling time, but I like to think they are fashionable as well.

    I wear a watch for function, and for that reason I swear something very comfortable:

    [​IMG]

    Been through about 3 of these over the last few years for the following reasons:

    1. Got paralytic drunk, and lost the first one
    2. 2nd one saved my life after I raised my arm in my shed and a saw that was hanging up came down blade first right through my watch
    3. Still going strong after 1 battery change over about 3 years

    I have been wanting to get a watch for my wife, but she hates wearing anything on her wrist :-/

    I never take mine off (even in the shower, I wear it as long as I am not washing the affected wrist, which is why I require the water-proofing to be functional, and a seal failure is a kill to me). It is more accurate than my phone, easier to look at (raise left wrist vs. fumble with my pocket, drag phone out, wake it out of standby).

    I wear 'em, usually the Rado one my fiancee gave [​IMG] Or sometimes the Westar watch my dad bought for me. People say girls wear on the right hand while boys on the left hand?? Who makes these kinds of rules? I wear on the right since childhood :wtf:

    it depends which is your dominate hand

    if your a righty, you wear a watch on your left
    if your a lefty, you wear a watch on your right

    this way the watch doesnt get in the way, for example writing

    We had a poll about it back when we had a polls section (whatever happened to that?).

    I wear a watch, it's a Swatch Skin model, it's great. Never leave home without it [​IMG]

    Got it at a sale at rougly 70% off (it was a "last year's model" and apparently "sooo last Tuesday"... [​IMG] ).

    I would wear that every day.
    It'll bring up a conversation at interviews

    You: *Checks watch*
    Interviewer: OMG NICE WATCH
    You: I KNOW RIGHT

    What's even cooler is that it's called the 'Iron Samurai'. As soon as I saw the name I was sold. [​IMG]

    Yes, a generic digital one.

    Pros: Extremely helpful, saves me from having to dig for my cellphone all the time.

    Cons: HURR DO YOU HAVE THE TIME?
