    Yes. They are mainly collectibles for me, wearing them is only incidental.

    Its all about enjoying the wrist time for me and has nothing to do with public perception.

    It's my life.

    I decide what's cool, and I've decided I like watches

    I repeat: "Fashion" is for followers. There is no "in" or "out". There is only style.

    Example: Slash wears a top hat. Slash has style. And his coolness is beyond dispute. (I don't think he wears a watch...I've never checked.)

    Edit: just did: My error...

    If they ever go out of style, I'll be an old man by then. Old people are allowed to do all kinds of unfashionable things. So, no problem. Hell, I can probably get away with wearing two watches per wrist when I'm old.

    Yep - I intend to always wear a decent watch - I would feel undressed without one. Outside WUS, I know only one person who is a real WIS. I know only a handful who have decent watches - generally given as 21st b'days gifts.

    Where I live few people are into watches - very few would recognise my watches, and many would be amazed at the cost and think it ridiculous. So being a mid level expensive automatic Swiss watch wearer is already uncool.

    One of my best pals never wears a watch - I have spoken to him about this and he told me its a generational thing (he's only 4 years younger )- he is certainly more culture cool conscious and he gets the time off his mobile phone - he thinks I am already a dinosaur! I think for many the mobile phone has replaced the watch, diary etc

    I spotted a group of elderly gents yesterday. As always I instinctively looked at their watches - all of them had small (35mm) thin (sub 10mm)rotary type gold plated watches on leather straps - fashions change

    I think many folk will always wear watches, but the the trend style and range of functionality will change in the future methinks

    Just as Ascots have never gone out of style-so watches will never go out of style for certain folks. It is called "class".

    Did someone say Slash is cool? I was thinking tool. Hehehe

    Watches aren't going to go out of style in our lifetime.
