Do you wear a watch?

If so, what kind do you wear?

Hell no. Between my cell phone, bike clock, car clock, computers and a dozen or so clocks in the house I'm never wondering what time it is! And usually don't care anyway.

I do, it's required for work. I like and wear Tissot watches. They're the least expensive Swiss watch with a sapphire crystal face, which are my only three criteria. I get lots of compliments on mine.

I like Tissot.

I own 4 watches which I rotate depending on what I'm wearing. None are especially expensive:

1. Tag - Got this as a Bar Mitzvah gift 22 years ago. I had it restored at some point, looks brand new. Cheap quartz movement

2. Christopher Ward - English brand chronograph with quartz Japanese movement. This is the one I wear with my mahogany shoes and belt as the band matches.

3. Poljot - a Russian brand, manual wind, large face, looks kind of like a Breitling.

4. Omega Seamaster size M- Quartz - purchased off friend years ago (was his wedding watch, wedding broke off).

I wear the Omega most as it goes with everything but the black banded Russian is my "Suit watch".

I wear my dads Seiko.

If I were to buy a new watch it'd be something like this:



Likely set to the wrong day, because I subsist on a diet of not giving a fuck.

Pretty classy looking though. You'll need nice suits to match. Can't wear that with jeans and a Hawaiian friday shirt.

Yeah that's not an everyday watch.

I like my clothing too, I get most of my stuff made in Bangkok and shipped over.

I alternate between these 2 watches my tissot and my bass is b1. The basis is nice and does a lot of health tracking but it doesn't look as nice as the tissot

Big fan of Omega's. Can't afford one by any means. I would love to have a Speedmaster X-33. Too bad you cannot purchase them unless you're military or NASA at this point. So eBay or second hand is the only way:




Here is a badass one they recently released: Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon edition:

Work makes it impossible to not wear one. I look at it seemingly every five minutes. Tissot when on my own time, but I bought one of these to destroy while I'm punched in. It's worked out quite well for being a cheapo. $65, analog, and has a stopwatch to time my asthmatic runs.
