    No watch for me. To big of a chance for it to snag on something. Same thing goes for rings. For regular wear, I prefer the g-shock series of watches.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      G-Shock is the only watch that will stand up to sledge hammer work. I have had the same inexpensive wave ceptor/tough solar G-shock for around seven year. Never had to reset time, or replace battery.

              No watch, no ring, no bracelets, no bling.

                A dollar store kids watch. Break easily if snagged. Cheap to replace if destroyed. They cost less than a replacement battery.

                      Casio with hands, don't like digital,synthetic wrist band. Feel naked without a wrist watch. Still have a flip phone! Looks like that might change soon, not much selection in flips these days.

                        caxio g shock. solar recharge and auto time setting. about the only thing that breaks is the band every year or so.

                            when you bill by the hour or partial, you better know what time you started and finished

                            even my jetter has a built in hour meter with job timer and service interval timers.

                            i guess all our smart phones have timers too, but who said we're smart enough to know how to use them

                              I have the water proof Casio and when the band breaks normaly lasts a year or more it becomes a pocket watch as the band price is usaly more than the watch,
