    Too funny! I have an old casio that tells the time, temperature, altitude, barometric pressure, stopwatch and date. I have had it for like 8 years. Problem is that all the crap it does burns through a $18 battery once a year.

    And i still say tube socks suck!!

    Oh, had to edit and say that my family tried desperately to buy me a nice silver bling-bling watch for christmas but i wouldn't let them. I like my dirty old scratched-up velcro band watch. Even though the watch band stinks. :flipoff2:

    My everyday watch is my Seiko Kinetic Sports 200. Silver bracelet, blue face. Got tired of changing batteries and then having the potential for leaking once the seal was broken.

    If I'm doing s***ty stuff, like working in the lab, or at work, or whatever, I have a $50 fossil I wear. Otherwise it's the Omega Seamaster GMT. Got it for my 21st B-day from my dad(he said when I graduate college and get married I can expect equally as impressive gifts :D). :)

    Edit: I definately anticipate passing it onto my oldest son, if I have one....if not, probably a grandchild...

    fossil-cause im too cheap to spend more than that on something that i will probably break or lose in a few years. Oh yeah i also got a ironman that i use when i hike and stuff like that.

    Well I rarely wear it since I stare at a computer screen all day and after a year or so I realized there is a small clock in the lower right corner...haven't needed it since.. :D Plus my cellphone has a clock on it...but I have a semi-nice (not compared to the Omega or Tag) Nautica one, nothing radically expensive but it looks nice, blue face, solid/heavy, has a band you have to turn to open so it can't just pop open...I like it.

    I dig those GMTs. Gotta see if my bud in CO can hook me up this winter. Otherwise I'm too cheap.

    I have several...in fact too many.....I like changing them with the clothes or mood.
    They are all cheapos too. I pull the stem out when not wearing them. That saves the battery.
    One of my favorites for causal wear is a Fossil sun dial. No moving parts. You need sunshine and knowledge of "north" to use it. I call it my Flintstones watch.
    I also have a watch with a scrimshaw etching of the world with Columbus's route
    and stuff shown.
    I also like the antique curved watches for suit wear. They don't fray starched shirts so bad.

    I've had Seiko Kinetics, Casios, Gruens, and a bunch of others--they all just broke or stopped working. Went without a watch for five years (duh, once you have kids, you either KNOW what time it is, or time doesn't matter 'cause you're gonna be up all night anyway). Besides, at what time in the day am I away from a computer, phone, car, clock, whatever.

    Started wearing a Swatch last year--simple, superlight, cheap.

    And if I ever go bald, I'm shaving it all off (not that it's that long to begin with. . . )

    I've been sporting the same Tag H. for about 10 years now.

    It's time to move on to something newer. But I can't afford the 'NEW' Tag's.
