    Question How long have you gone without wearing a watch?

    I must say, the past 10 days have been very challenging for me because that is how long my wrist has gone without wearing a watch. I am currently between moving and I decided to place my watches in the watch box within a moving box for safe keeping of course. The box is with me at my temporary residence until the wife and I get situated. It must be the stress from moving that has not allowed me to unbox my watches. I do feel that my wrist is too bare and it has also become awkward because I am depending more on my cell phone to tell time. What have I become?
    I would like to hear some of your responses.

    Would you say I have a plethora of watches?

    Since I got gifted my first watch, a cheap one with red leds in the 70s: never. Always wore a watch, every single day.

    EDIT: now that I think about it, I was in a coma for three days and I imagine they (the nurses) took my watch off then.

    Nearly 3 weeks now.

    Not fun. Want a watch. But, I do have one watch currently available, but I don't particularly like it, so it's staying on the shelf (until it sells). I guess I'd rather not wear any watch than wear a watch I dislike.

    No "beater" watch? This is the perfect situation/reason for having one!

    Times like this is why every WIS needs to have at least one good beater watch.

    The only times I don't have a watch on is when I'm either playing golf or tennis and it gets in the way. My watch is almost always in my bag ready to put on after my game. I can't remember the last time I went a full day without wearing a watch.

    hmm, in a last 8 years - probably not a single day. As others said - everyone should have a beater.
    Even when I go to the beach I have my Orange Monster. For intl travel to challenging locales - a nice beater can't be beat :) (wore Seiko milemarker while in Morocco, wore Invicta in India). For moving, car repairs, andy high-risk to watch activity - Invicta works out pretty well (and I am no Invicta fan). If it gets damaged - no worry. I always need to know the time though

    There is about one day every couple months where something comes up when I am leaving the housemand I forget my watch. Boy, do I hate these days.... I slap one on as soon as I hit the front door.

    Re: How long have you gone without wearing a watch?

    10 days in August 2009, after the strap broke on my Luminox 3604 whilst snorkelling in the sea on holiday and the water was too deep to find it.

    Did not really need a watch for those 10 days, but could not get used to the empty wrist.

    Good comes out of everything though, as I then got my JSAR to replace it, but I always put this on an orange Nato strap now if I am doing something similar.

    I felt very naked without it.

    Re: How long have you gone without wearing a watch?

    About three weeks when my right shoulder had been operated on. I was confined into house life for that time period, so I decided it would be too much hassle to put a watch an after the operation. I had no where to go or any kind of schedule to follow. A watch seemed so pointless at that point.
