    Hey, I love talking about watches! It's hard to pick just one favorite, but I've got a thing for vintage Seiko divers. The timeless design and durability really appeal to me. Moreover, it can be useful if I decide to get a loan at New Bond Street Pawnbrokers. What about you? What's your go-to timepiece?

    I like wearing my watch. People think it's expensive but what do they know. It's some unknown fashion-forward watches' brand from LA. It's great for what it cost me though.

    Gotta say, picking a favorite watch is like choosing your favorite flavor of ice cream - impossible! But if I had to narrow it down, I'd go with something classic and timeless, ya know? Like a sleek, stainless steel number that goes with everything from jeans to a suit.

    Now, about replica watches, let's keep it real for a sec. Sure, they might look like the real deal at first glance, but deep down, you know it's not the same. Plus, there's something special about owning the real deal, right? Like knowing you've got a piece of craftsmanship strapped to your wrist.

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand - favorite watches. Personally, I'm all about those minimalist designs that pack a punch. Clean lines, subtle details, and maybe a pop of color to keep things interesting. And let's not forget about functionality - gotta have those extra features like water resistance and a reliable movement.

    What For ? I haven't wear a watch since the 90's ! My phone is taking care of that function.

    Now, it is true that a watch may be interesting not for its primary function anymore but for the many other data that device can provide...



    Full disclosure : I've never heard of the term "smartwatch" before just one minute ago..

    I don't wear a watch, but if I did, I'd wear something like a Timex Marlin. It's mechanical, so it's not very accurate, but the only reason I'd wear a watch in the first place is if I couldn't have a phone, and so we're talking End Of The World stuff, so no electricity but presumably enough civilization to still need to time-coordinate tasks.

    Dark leather strap, of course.

    My uncle gave me my first real watch. It was mechanical and a lot busier than the Timex Marlin, but it was accurate to about 40 seconds per day, which was phenomenal. I didn't ask him how much it cost.

    I wore cheaper watches in college, but I don't actually remember which ones they were. I do remember wearing springy stainless steel watch straps. I liked them because they kept the watch fairly snug during activities, and didn't like them because their scissors action pinched the hairs on my wrist until they wore off all the hairs.

    When I got married, I got a thin, square-ish gold Seiko watch with a pale-gold face and a leather strap. It was battery-powered and kept perfect time. I didn't wear it much, because it made me look rich enough that potential customers assumed that I didn't need their business, which was completely incorrect. So, I put the watch in a drawer and wore it only for special occasions.

    When I got an iPhone, I stopped wearing watches entirely. They kind of suck, to tell you the truth. I mean, strap a clock to your wrist? Why not an egg-beater, too? Throw in a can-opener and an instrument to tell you how deep underwater you are, maybe put a propeller on your hat to tell wind speed, and you're all set.

    But, if I had to wear a watch, I'd probably go with the Timex Marlin.

    I'm fiercely loyal to Casio. High quality for a low price. Will never wear anything else. I have the G7900, F91W, and MDV106.
