Watches look cool thats ALL!
Watches look cool thats ALL!
"The stuff that dreams are made of…"
Because when I strap my watch to my wrist, it puts a smile on my face. Watches are historical in design, and whether they are a modern quartz, retro piece, or a mechanical marvel, we are honoring a tradition that has existed for two centuries. As a professional, I would look goofy and unprofessional reaching for my iPhone everytime I wanted to know what time it is. I can certainly glance at my watch in a fraction of a second and that brief glance, still brings me immeasurable pleasure. Now, if I could just be happy with "A" watch. Alas, that seems not in the cards. This forum has ruined me for life and I fear many more purchases will be in my future!

Time to enjoy what I have and not feel I need another piece. Brands that will be on the list for the future include: Longines - Glashutte Original - RGM - Omega - Tudor - And Yes, Ralph Lauren (Really Cool Pieces)
I'd admire a Pretty Watch if it was photographed on a pile of dog doo!

I have clocks in my truck and on my phone, and even on some of the equipment I use every day. I wear a watch because I just love the character and mechanical complexity of a watch. I like how it makes me feel, and yes - I like what it says about me: that I am traditional; that I have style; that I am successful; that I am rugged; that I am nostalgic.
One of my very favorite parts of every day is, after I've dressed, getting to choose which watch best represents my style, my mood, and my goals for that day. It's often a very hard decision as I have over 80 watches, but I truly love the satisfaction of choosing just the right watch.
A gentleman always wear a watch.

Because it's there.
I wear a watch because I enjoy wearing them.
I'd like to know the time with a flick of a wrist and I love to stare at it sweeping or ticking whenever I'm bored.
A chronograph is a definite plus, I like to time things, waiting in line etc.
I have two cell phones that I use every day (one personal, one job-related) and almost all my working day relates to sitting in front of a computer. But when i want to check the time I always look at the watch on my hand. Always. A cell phone is for making and receiving phone calls, a computer is for computing and visiting watchuseek. My watches tell the time my way.
Giving life and purpose to an obsolete mechanical watch (which according to some, has a soul) makes me feel like a saviour and a god.
I should note that I am also prone to illusions of grandeur.
