So I know many of us here like watches. And there have been many threads already about opinions and recommendations on watches. Always good. But what are you wearing? Let's see the watch you're wearing right now, on your wrist, and in your setting. Be creative!

This is my Christopher Ward C60 Bronze diver series. (I'm not a diver, at least not in the waterlaugh, but I bought this watch anyway because I love the bronze). It's my fifth Christopher Ward watch. It's a mechanical automatic, but I wind it daily ... because I can.

Previously I would have said nothing! but lately I'm wearing a Fitbit Charge 3.

It doesn't have quite the panache of your watch.

I have not worn a watch since the late 90s.

I tend to wear chronographs because I do legitimately use them for timing occasionally, and it's a lot easier to trigger a watch on your wrist than a smartphone without looking. 

But today it was the Luminox 1923. I'll get a pic tomorrow, got a little person bunked down in the room where it is right now.

Seiko SKX013

I'm not a diver either, but it gets worn in the pool.

Was going to post a pic of my $35 Timex Expedition, but upon reflection, y'all are outside my tax bracket.

This one cost me $39. I've worn it to F1 races, for photo shoots for magazines (it's been in R&T at least, you can see it in the driving shots) and it's one of my favorites. It's a Chaika 3056 from the USSR, built sometime in the 80's. You don't have to spend a lot of money for interesting watches.

My current favorite is this one right now. Orient Mako XL. $100 ebay find. Admittedly I did put it on just for this shot. Only gets worn on my days off and I haven't been going out much on my days off for a couple months.

The one I wear to work is a DW5600E G shock that doesn't mind me smacking it against solid objects or getting coolant from the machines on it.

Also speaking of Timex, I still like this one a fair bit.

Can't find it at the moment, (so I'm ripping off someone else's pics) but when I go out, I wear my watch. Which is also a jet.

I'm just wearing this old thing I bought at a shopping mall a few decades ago.  Don't ever really see much need to get anything else.

I haven't worn a watch in about 10 years. I accidentally left the very nice Citizen Eco Drive my mom purchased for me in college, in a car I traded in.

Of course when I called later they "didn't find it."

Y'all know they have digital watches now, right? They are easier to read. cheekydevil

Well alright, then!

Also have a family heirloom Waltham pocket watch from 1904, but I don't wear it.

Since I retired I've only worn a watch a couple of days.

You know when you read a digital watch, your brain surreptitiously converts it  to analog?

I used to have a Marathon GSAR, which was a lovely tank of an automatic watch, but I've since switched to a smaller Omega quartz. It might not be a tool watch, but I wear it pretty much everywhere. Unlike the Marathon, this is interview-appropriate too!

I have had a series of digital Casios but I need a second hand for obtaining heart rate and respiration values.

I've seen calculator watches get super popular lately. I used to get the E36 M3 kicked out of me for being a nerd with one.
