I have a few nice watches but it's a Garmin that's been on my wrist for several years now. I am probably not alone. Problem is every time I reach for my nicer watches the batteries are dead. I can't see myself spending more than $500 on watch so something like a Tissot is as fancy as I will ever get.

I didn't know very many people still wore watches. Don't most people use their phones, instead of a watch?

Unless you keep your phone in your hand all day it is easier to glance at a watch than dig your phone out of your purse or pocket.

Watches are convenient, easy to look down at (easier than a phone, unless you keep a phone in your hand) and can be a fashion accessory as well as a practicality.

I wear a Garmin not because I use it to tell time, it's a vital band. Collects health vitals and send it to my smartphone or use it to alert me when a call or important notification comes in.

Watches are dead for telling time, it's main purpose these days is a fashion accessory or gather vital stats.

Yep, hands are full of work stuff, phone is in my pocket, and far easier to tilt wrist to check time than stop everything, drop everything (Im a janitor, so were talking big items and rats) and dig my phone out of my pocket, with probably a damp hand, so its a wrestling match, and then pick up all my stuff to carry on.

I had a Casio G-shock that was $60. But the wristband broke and Casio discontinued that color (white), so now I'm stuck with a watch that works perfectly fine but cannot wear it.

I went back to my stainless steel Seiko watch that was a gift 15 years ago. Don't know how much it costs since it was a gift.

I've always worn Seiko from my military days in the late 1960s and many years afterward but right now I wear whatever I get for Christmas or my birthday, e.g., Fossil and, as of this Christmas, a Bulova day/date.

I don't recall how much I used to pay for the Seikos, probably not over $300 for the highest priced one. However, at a military base pay of $411 a month around 1971, I expect that I paid a LOT less than $300 for a Seiko.

Bulova Dive watch, stainless. $145, new. Takes a $9 battery replacement every couple of years.

My Rolex SSubs took a $800 maintenance/refurbishing every few years and never kept accurate time. Happy to have sold them for double what I paid for them. Somebody else can enjoy all that "prestige" on their wrist.
