    I do for specific purposes only. If I’m timing laps, yes, a sports watch. If I’m dressing formally for work, yes, a dress watch. Otherwise, no watches.

    I wear a watch every day and have for almost 20 years. I have one nice watch I wear every day and then I usually get a cheap sports watch for situations out hiking or camping where I don’t want to wear my nice watch.

    I love Fossil watches and wear one every day.  I’ve always just liked wearing a watch as an accessory, even though I hardly ever look at it for the time.

    I wear a watch every single day. I have my normal Citizen Ecodrive that my FI bought me for Christmas that I wear all the time and I have a nice sports watch for super casual days and working out. I honestly feel like I’m missing something if I’m not wearing a watch.

    I have a Citizen Ecodrice my dad gave me for my 25th birthday, which I wear almost every day. I don’t wear it if I’m doing something like yard work or at the gym, but other than that, I always wear it. In fact I even forgot to take it off before our wedding ceremony!

    I have a Cartier Tank Francaise that is really timeless and I wear when I dress up for work, but I don’t wear it on an everyday basis.

    Absolutely, I feel naked without one. Even though I have my iPhone/iPad, I can’t get used to reading the time on smart devices.

    Watches are also sentimental to me. My collection – a Longines, an Omega and a Hermes – are all gifts from my parents to mark special occasions.

    hegetsme:  I don’t, but I never did. There’s something in my skin (my mom’s too) that makes watch batteries explode so we can never wear them. It’s the weirdest thing I had ever heard about… but when I got my first Fossil watch in middle school and it stopped working 2 days later my mom mentioned she had the same problem. We took some of our watches to the jewelers and someone there told us that this is apparently something that happens to certain people? So weird.

    I love my watch.  I don’t wear it everyday, but I do wear it often. Its a mens Rolex, but I can dress it up or wear it casually.

    Depending on “how nice” they are, there are several watch forums that you can try and sell them on.  If you sell them through Ebay you will have to pay their fees (also on PayPal too).

    hegetsme:  I wear mine every day, because I think many times it’s rude to whip out your phone to look at the time – or there are times at work when I’m in a meeting or running around when I don’t have my phone anyway.

    hegetsme:  I wear mine as an accessory, not because I need a watch:)

    I wear a watch every day. I have a few classics that I rotate depending on the occasion/oufit. I also have a tattoo on my wrist and I use my watch and bracelet to cover it up at work.

    DH is a timepiece guy, but I never wore one until he bought it for me as a Christmas present. Now I wear it everyday and use it often!

    FutureDrAtkins:  hate to break it to you, but that’s a pretty lame super power. Unless you can find a way to harness it to do more–at least to destroy the batteries on watches that other people are wearing (you could cause caos by making people late to things. You’d probably need to destroy phone batteries too though).
