Movado - wearing a watch is an essential for me. Not sure if they're in anymore though...

That's very similar to mine. I bought it pre-owned from a Rolex dealer for 1/3 the cost of new.

I was allowed to pick out a Christmas present for myself while on vacation this year and ended up with this:

Movado Men's 0606545 Museum Sport Chrono w/Black Perforated Rubber Strap Watch: Watches: Amazon.com

I've always liked the Movado watches. Classy but very low-key when compared to other timepieces like Rolex, Tissot, Citizen, etc.

I've also got a Guess watch, a Diesel watch, and a Mickey Mouse timex somewhere...

Yep, I've got a few. Tissot Seaster1000




Longines Legend diver



Damasko DC66



And a custom wristwatch that I had a friend build for me using a vintage Hamilton pocket-watch movement from the 1940s. Sorry, no pics of that one, yet.

Most days I don't wear a watch. I have a Movado that I wear sometimes, but I've had it for years, and find it a bit small for my liking these days. I also have a Michele jelly bean watch that I'll wear occasionally on more casual occasions. I want a larger face watch but I haven't found one I like yet.

I have a Danish watch, can't remember the brand, but it's powder-coated steel. I bought that when I got tired of getting nickel allergy reactions to other metal watch straps. Most of the time, though, I don't wear a watch... digital clocks are on every gadget nowadays, so I don't see the need.

^^ Skagen, you mean.
Watches are essentially item I have to have before step out of the house. I wasn't a fan of watches until recently. Guess it has something to do with growing up lol. I have 5 watches: Kenneth Cole, Swiss Army, and Skagen.
