    I wear a Suunto Core wrist watch, all black. It would be perfect if it had GPS capability. I have a few other watches that I wear when I'm headed out to the club or whatever, but the Suunto is my favorite. What do you wear 8th?

    Any particular reason why you like this watch? Style, perks etc?

    It is plain, but professional enough to wear with business casual. Large faced digital watches look kind of odd in office setting.

    And I also hate my current crappy Columbia digital watch, so the Swiss gets the most wear.

    Their prices are HIGH. I looked at some of their "40% off" watches by Victorinox that are older models, and they are almost 2X the price you can find online. Luminox Dive watches are priced high too.

    They've been very reasonable the couple times I've used them.

    Watches make my wrist itch and I'm not big on jewelery generally. I carried a pocket watch for a while until I realized I wasn't 70 years old and didn't wear a three-piece suit.

    Might be because they are an authorized dealer. Most of the sites online offer legitimate watches but they might not be an authorized dealer thus the watches don't come with a manufacturer's warranty.

    I don't know how old you are or what you do, but my life is built around time. It's not a matter of style or what have you, but a must have item.

    I just look at the sun. I can usually get it within the hour.

    I use my phone. I've had a few watches and broke them within a month of getting them.

    There are plenty of ways to know the time without wearing a watch if you work in an office or at home. I imagine if you work outside it's more crucial. I'm 30 and have never worn a watch.

    It is kind of a military thing. Watch, compass and blade. Three things that one should always have.
