pocket watch or wrist watch?
Which do you prefer?

I own several old wrist watches, but here recently I decided to buy a pocket watch. You see, I like old stuff, old ideals and old ways. I think that we have went backwards and lost some stuff that shouldn't have been lost.

The pocket watch that I carry is a symbol to me saying that I prefer old ways.
I still have a wrist watch for those jobs were reaching into your pocket to find the time or having a chain hanging on you is annoying.

Wristwatch used to be it for me. But I haven't worn a watch since fracturing my left wrist 3 and a half years ago, and all my watch bands irritated the hell out of the scar where wrist was repaired. But my car has a clock, home and office have multiple clocks (phones, pc, cable box), and my Blackberry is my constant companion. So I don't miss my watch a bit.

I own several of each, too, but I prefer a wristwatch.

But they're mechanical (automatic), not quartz. My every-day wear is a Tissot Seastar 1000. Got a nice Hamilton auto for dress.

I love my wrist watch. I got one hell of a deal on it too..... It is nice and heavy built like a tank and it was a great price from a great friend.

Cane I wear it every day.

Wrist watch, still saving for a Citizens Promaster Carbon Eco Drive Chronograph Dive Watch!

Wristwatch for me!
I'd go with a simple analog wristwatch like my military-looking Timex Expedition watch. I suppose it is more Tacti-cool than tactical, but it's black, it has legible numbers, it lights up at night, it's cheap, and it fits me. I really can't ask for too much more...

I stopped wearing a wristwatch after an accident a couple of years ago. Now I'm used to using my cell phone for timekeeping, but have a box full of expensive wristwatches (All mechanical, no quartz) that get rotated out from time to time.

Watches are an addiction almost as bad (good) as guns.
