None. It's a useless tool in our times where we are surrounded by time displays: pc's, phones, every fuckingwhere you turn there is something showing what time is it.
Have stopped using watches a decade ago and don't miss them whatsoever

Oh well, carry on as you were and I'll just try to ignore you as best I can.

I've had a Tag that worked like a dream for 12 years, had 3 new batteries and that was it. It stopped before Christmas and the quote for a service & battery was £270. :shock:

It's in my bedside draw and I'm wearing a Massimo Dutti watch that cost £100

And what a fine job you've made of that. Better late than never though. You can walk away with your insincerity intact.

Yes, I wear a cheap Seiko....
Seikos are more expensive than most of the watches posted so far.

I really like military style watches. I have a fake Panerai which I didn't mention in the OP out of shame. I never wear it though - very big (for sale for a fiver if you want it!).

Mine is getting quite old now:

But I did have one of these for about 6 months - not mine and long story (no, it wasn't nicked):

By some margin, the most beautiful thing I've ever worn.
