Invicta Subaqua Noma III for me. Big, cheap, and I don't have to worry about smacking it on things.

Daily is a Speedmaster Automatic.

Today sporting a Rolex Daytona, because we're going out for a fancy b-day dinner later.

Those are really the only two I wear anymore (probably no coincidence that they have similar styling) - I should just throw the rest on ebay.

That's an insanely good observation! I had not registered the Flavaflav perennial recurrence. And you know what, I actually wore a Flava flav clock on a Halloween once.. and it didn't hurt much at all with regards to meeting others So there, about jewelry

It looks like today's thread was just started to list people's watches and to see what others have. I have 5-6 too... can't wear a blue-faced watch with a red hoodie.

Citizen navigator watch, a solid watch that has survived. However the Clip watch is watch of choice to have on person all the time. Its heavy bugger, a belt loop above a pocket helps supporting it weight.

Omg, this like fucking Inception or something. Look at the date on the watch in the stock photo from this post and then the date on my watch after I bought it in this post....and what day is it today? Twenty fucking second again. Crazy huh?

Not since I got my arm-to-hand tattoo on my left arm. Prior to that, I would feel naked without an analog watch.

And no, I can't just wear one on my right arm.

Chronomat Evo automatic. Got some interest, but didn't really want to let it go for what was offered. Probably should have, it seems that the gold/diamond/blingy look is fallen out of fashion even more now.

I've gotten so used to the relatively light(er) weight of the others, so now the Chronomat just feels a bit too bulky so it never comes out of the safe.

I'm sure it would sell on ebay, but I'm a little leery of selling anything that expensive on there.

I have 3 Tissot's as they sponsor MotoGP.

Made sense to me. Just started wearing a watch again after 30 years.
Mostly for fashion.

I am wearing this Movado today. Present from the wife.
Bling bling and thin. Love that while wearing dress shirts.

Not sure what this suckers costs. That is good.

Oh OK maybe that version is only automatic. There may be a silver face Omega SpeedMaster chrono that is actually manual wind.
I haven't tried neither and I will not. I did try an Aqua Terra but I will not go there.

Oh OK. Well I guess there was this story on eBay/BARF where you send the watch and then they respond 'never received'. I guess you know what to watch (oops!) out for

Explorer II with a Sea Dweller band for me, the Submariner was a tad bulky and the GMT too colorful, so this one is just right. Got it n 98...

(And a Casio like GAJ posted. The older I get, the simpler the face has to be, I'd have trouble with that Invicta.)

Yes, and too many to name.

Not really expensive ones. But I dig watches and feel naked without one.
