No, not anymore, not for 15 years or so.  Now, I go to bed when I'm sleepy, and awake when I'm rested.  Just like a Bear.

Hank- yes I do wear a watch, and after Richie Alan Naggar author PEARLS FOR THE SOUL.com Books on  comment, I'm not saying what kind.  I wear it though for 2 reasons :

1. habit

2. it balances me since I wear bracelets on my right arm.  Can't have one without the other.

If you want super affordable super cool and easy on easy off watch go  look at the Casio G-Schock. ( $150-250)  For those who wear them they are great conversation starters. Ubercool even if you are over 35... IF you want to ramp it up and get a cross over sport, dress watch  Shinola from Detroit is all the rage.  ($650-900)  And IF you are lusting after the big guns  Go Rolex or Panerai all the way ($7,000 to 13,000 for a non embellished stainless or two tone. The sky is the limit after that.)   Cartier works  but they are as expensive and lose 50% of their value  and limited resale or trade. Rolex and Panerai have great trade and resale. 

If you buy a used Luxury watch only buy from an authorized dealer or jeweler who will  let you take it to an authorized dealer for authentication and appraisal.

I quit wearing a watch in 1975 when I reported aboard my nuclear submarine. My watch had a glow in the dark feature that used radium and set off an alarm. It was rated hot! Never wore another watch!

Haven't worn a watch in a very long time. I've got the time on my phone, my tablet, in the car ... or if I'm really desperate I can always ask someone nearby, and maybe pick up a new client!

Couple of reasons for me...1. It gets caught up in things. Think The Three Stooges here. It just does this for me. 2. My smarty phone does it all.

TAKE NOTE.....

Well now every watch thief has a map of the best places to visit and who not to visit for gain Laura Coffey has fashion pieces, Joan Cox has accessories,  Barbara Todaro has 52 of them, Tamra Lee Ulmer has bracelets....The rest of you better all lock your doors for the next couple of weeks at least...LOL

I haven't worn a watch in many years.  I use my cell phone to check time.  I have a clock on the wall and on my computer and microwave oven and in my car dashboard.

Why is it called a watch?  I don't watch it.  It should be called a look.  Or a wrist clock.
A neighborhood watch does not involve a clock.  Very confusing.

It's a rarity Hank Dugie or any jewelry for that matter. Especially when tinkeing with cars, their moving parts and electrical, I've seen what happens when the unexpected occurs. I'd rather not take that chance when everywhere I turn there's a clock ticking away.
