    What is the watch you see mostly on people wrists ?

    Being the watch nut that I am I find I stare many times at people wrists trying to see what watch they wear.
    I commute to work and back via bus and subway so I get to see many people everyday.
    In most cases if people wear watches I dont recongine they watches, these in most cases are cheap quartz watchs but in some cases I do recognise.

    The watch I see the most and recognise is Omega Seamaster.
    Second most common is the Rolex Submariner.
    My collection

    Rolex Submariner 16610 Caliber 3135
    Rolex Daytona 116520 Caliber 4130
    Omega Planet Ocean Chrono 2218.50.00 Caliber: Omega 3313

    In construction I see cheap plastic watches or metal Timex type things.

    I don't punch the Office Building time card so I don't see a lot of watches in my business.

    I will say the only real watch I've seen come into my office was a Seamaster PO.

    besides the watches on my wrist I will add.

    Despite what others have said in the Speedmaster Cliche thread, the Speedmaster remains one of the top watches I have seen in the wild. Others in no particular order:

    Rolex Daytona
    Rolex Sub
    Panerai (various models)
    Omega Seamaster
    Victorinox (various models)
    G-Shock

    Casio, I think that's what they call them.
    The stand outs are the INVICTA's....because they are so BIG.

    In my two years as a watch voyeur, I've spotted many Fossil watches and several unknown but really large watches that had to be in the 50+ range. I recall seeing this chunky gold plated piece that overwhelmed this one guy's wrist. I also recall seeing a similarly sized watch dangling on the wrist of a thin girl at the counter. I was wearing a 36mm watch at the time, so I felt a little self-conscious. G-shocks seem to be prevalent among adults and teens.

    I sometimes take the same subway car with a guy who wears a Seiko SKX007. I don't know him, but I like his choice in a daily wear piece. So far, it's the only SKX007 I've spotted in the wild.

    Walking through the streets of Manhattan, I come across Omega Seamasters and the occasional Rolex. I never had the opportunity to take a closer look, so I couldn't tell if they were sporting fakes.

    At my local supermarket, I spotted a blue dialed gold Rolex sub on the wrist of an older man, but upon closer inspection while waiting behind him, it turned out to be an Invicta.

    When I was a kid in the late '70s and early '80s I remember seeing a lot of Rolexes on men around me, whether people I knew or strangers at the mall.

    Mostly Seiko quartz and Citizen Eco Drive, if anything at all. I work in an office. The managers have some nicer watches, TAGs, Movado, Breitling, a Rolex here or there. There's even one watch obsessed managing director who I've seen wearing JLC, Breitling, and IWC, as well as many vintage pieces I haven't been able to identify.
    TAG Heuer Monaco LE|Omega Speedmaster|Seamaster 300MC|Rolex Submariner|Tudor Ranger

    How did it get so late so soon?
