    Would you wear a watch that doesn't work?

    Since most of us (all?) on this forum consider a watch to be much more than a means to tell time:

    If you had a watch that didn't run at all for whatever reason (or at least not well enough to tell time practically, e.g. the spring got magnetized), but you liked the look of the watch, would you wear it anyway?

    1) Yes -- all the watches I have are worthy of being worn even without telling time
    2) No -- I wouldn't wear any watch that didn't work
    3) Maybe -- If I thought one perfectly suited a particular occasion or outfit.

    LOL NO, i wouldnt wear a watch that didnt work, the basic requirement for me with any watch is that it is working.

    This gives a new definition to 'fashion watch" :)

    OP what watch have you been wearing that doesnt work? :)

    Couldn't do it. But my view of watches has always been function. My watch is an inspectable item so it has to work.

    Sounds like you're describing a bracelet to me My answer is no, how embarrassing to have someone ask you the time of day while sporting a broken watch.

    No never. My watches have to look right but they also have a job to do at the same time so even a non functioning Daytona would be a no no.

    Hell no!! I actually use mine for time, day and date at the end of my work day while filling out my reports.

    If something is broke, dispose of or fix it.

    I would wear it in my pocket, so I could drop it off at the watchmaker's place.
