    What is your most comfortable watch?

    Which watch do you put on and it is so comfy, you forget you've even got it on? One that doesn't constantly shift on your wrist and annoy, but you happen to glimpse and think "hey this thing is a comfortable beauty"? For me, its my titanium Kobold Phantom. On the leather strap or the titanium bracelet, it is infinitely wearable:

    Re: What is your most comfortable watch?

    The most comfortable for me is any watch that I happen to have my Omega mesh bracelet on. I love the way it conforms to my wrist and moves with me instead of biting into me like some bracelets do. Plus it doesn't stick to me when wet like rubber/plastic bands do.

    Suprisingly it's this Seiko Spring Drive on modded Sinn Rubber. It's titanium so although pretty big the weight isn't all that noticable and the strap fits just snug enough to keep the watch in place above my wrist bone so it never rides down onto the back of my hand.

    I even wear this working out and never have any comfort issues.

    You actually work out with that jewel on??? I bang myself in the gym enough without having to wear a fantastic piece of machinery.

    One visit to a gym with any watch would be like crawling through a war zone with me.

    seiko sawtooth on rubber is very nice fitting. It is a big watch but sits low on the wrist.

    I'd have to say the Bathys Auto on Hirsch Mariner. It's a bit smaller than most of my watches, but still chunky enough to have some wrist presence. The strap is super soft and conforms to the wrist perfectly, and the slight downward curve to the lugs keeps the watch head in place.



    The cushion case on a vintage 6309 is a very close second.

    Toss up between a Breitling Steelfish XL and Seiko MM300 both on bracelet either one I can wear for days on end and forget I even have a watch on.

    Thumbs Up Re: What is your most comfortable watch?

    This ORIS big Crown Diver (40mm) is super comfy. I keep the bracelet comfortably loose on my 7" wrist, and it just sits where I put it without moving around, unless I intentionally move it. I think it's the bracelet design that makes it so. The solid end-links fit snugly to the watch with very little play. As those end-links are curved, they act like an extra long, slightly flexible lug that hugs/wraps the top of the wrist.

    The ORIS is steel and has a bit of weight, but I'm used to that - I've worn dive watches for over 25 years. I'm uncomfortably unbalanced without one on my arm.



    I suppose another aspect of the comfort here is that I'm comfortable wearing this watch no matter what I'm doing. I'm not conscious of it and I'm not worried about bashing it. It seems to be practically indestructable. I've worn it for several years on construction sites working with heavy timbers and power tools and it still looks fine.

    My description does not do the Big Crown justice. I guess you just have to feel it to believe it.
