    Thanks pal! I didn't think I was the only one with a backup. G shock would be a great spare, I keep my homage build in my armrest.

    Do you ever switch out which back up you keep in your car?

    well...any watch I own that I'm not wearing is a "spare". lol I don't carry around extra watches; no "back-up" in the glovebox or reserve in my desk.

    Re: Do you keep a spare?

    Sorry to be posting again but this topic is like passing an accident scene, you know you shouldn't look but you can't help it. I have read some pretty strange posts here since joining and have probably made some also but this seems extreme. Think about what we're talking about here, keeping an extra watch with us or available in a stash spot in case we need them. My apologies to OP I don't mean to be a butt head but you need to get hold of the watch thing before you are wearing brand shirts to work.

    I'm not sure when I started carrying one, its second nature now to almost always have a spare around. I like the feeling of having options I guess lol

    Do hats count?

    Scenario:

    What if you're going to get drinks with a buddy who always wears Invicta? Are you going to sit idly by while he embarrasses you with his "watch game" or are you going to fix the eye sore before it starts? Bring a spare, because you're the real MVP.

    Back on topic:

    I'm embracing the quirks that is my weird watch obsession. I know there are plenty of forum members who proudly and regrettably do the same. We all geek out about something, and this is definitely it for me.

    Can't say I bring a spare around when I only need one!

    Re: Do you keep a spare?

    Lost a Luminox once when on holiday diving, when the strap broke and the water was too deep to recover it. However given that was a one off I don't bother with a spare given I can get time off phone and if I need a watch I can always buy a real cheap one to us until I get back.

    Re: Do you keep a spare?

    I wouldn't have any of my watches left in drawers, glove box or anywhere other than in their box or on my wrist. Not only have I gone through 3 attempts to steel my car, but watches in drawers get scratched and banged, and this is not how I like to keep them if we’re talking entry level luxury watches or above.
