Pocket watch. I got used to wearing them because my job in the military did not allow me to wear a wrist watch for safety reasons. I never had a fancy pocket watch just a simple one but I like the style.

Good to know. I don't collect watches, they just seem to pile up.

I read "Lucifer's Hammer" when I was about 10, and the only battery run watch I've owned since then is my Suunto that is strapped to my hunting pack because it has all the cool weather/atmospheric stuff on it.

A good watch is like a good gun. A nice piece of engineering.

I don't wear a wrist watch cause I like both my arms to weigh the same I have owned some nice wrist watches though.

I never got into the pocket watch theme.

I use my cell phone for most of my time keeping.

If you get a Ti watch they weigh almost nothing.

Thanks for the shout out Tango, it was my pleasure.

My favorite watch is my Luminox F-117 NIGHTHAWK 6400 SERIES, it's one bad-azz watch!



My everyday watch is a Seiko Big Tuna that I think Scubie wears.



Another favorite is my Tissot Titanium T-Touch with compass, altitude, temp and chronometer:



Another outstanding Seiko MENS CHRONOGRAPH FLIGHTMASTER PILOT:



Tango has this watch in Black Face.

It doesn't matter what kind of watch I have somehow I seem to be able to break them. I still get them from time to time though. AS long as they are not digital. I just can't stand a digital watch. Even the clock on my cell is set to analog.

I like the "Orange Monster" Seiko, Cane. That's been on my to-buy list for a while...they're great watches.

If only there was someone in this freakin' area who was competent to work on a garden-variety 2824-2 I could get my Hamilton regulated.

I use my cel for monitoring the time. I have considered a pocket watch as a keyfob, but haven't picked one up yet. I haven't really liked a wrist watch since college when i wore this HUGE seiko one of my dad's clients brought him from japan. I need to track down that old self-winding watch at some point.
