    every day. for style (it's a must) and function (it's more practical, for me).

    I wear a wristwatch every day. I have 2 watches: one diver's (metal) watch and one classic, simple, style watch with a back leather strap. I also have a brown leather strap for more casual outfits. The black strap is mainly for when I wear my suit and black dress shoes and want to have matching leathers.

I think every man who's interested in their appearance should have a nice watch as it just compliments good style. Nothing worse than a man who knows how to dress well but wears a shockingly bad watch. Well, maybe a man with no style AND a shit watch! Lol.
    I find this type of comment intreresting, what makes a good watch? Given that most people will typically shop for the brand (ie Boss, Armani etc) or perceived status (ie TAG, Omega, Rolex), what do you learn about the person? I find it better that the watch makes the person smile, regardless of what others think.

    +1 on the 91w!

    Might have to invest in something a little more elegant as a 2nd choice though haha.

    I personally very rarely wear a watch. I've fallen into the habit of not wearing them at work as I wear double cuff shirts and I haven't got any shirts where the watch will sit discreetly under the cuff. I know the point is you can have your watch on display, but for me I don't like walking round with my cuff bunched up above a watch. I also very rarely wear a watch with causal clothes, but can most definitely appreciate a nice looking watch.

    I can't say I miss not wearing one, and would find it a bit odd if someone judged me for not wearing one. Maybe it's just me, as I also never wear sunglasses, hats and even belts rarely make it into my outfits.

    I've always worn a watch since the time my dad got me my first watch when I was about ten. It was a wind-up one.. if we were told to be home at a certain time and were late back, I would blame the watch - "I forgot to wind it up".

    I'm old enough to remember the original Casio digital watches when they came out first and had a couple of them... it was high-tech stuff back then, especially the ones with the built-in calculators!

    The next "big thing" after them were Swatch watches... there was a mad craze for them for a number of years.

    My current watch is this one..



    .. my missus bought it for me a few months after we first met for my birthday. That was ten years ago, so even though it's nothing amazing in watch terms or value, it means a lot to me and I went to a lot of trouble two years ago to get a replacement strap for it.

    I also own this watch which I should probably sell as I've only ever worn it once or twice...

    The only thing you can truly tell about a man by the watch he wears, is what watch he owns. If you think any more than this, then you are very foolish.
