Since my crappy casio wristwatch broke, I haven't really looked for a replacement. Now for over 6 months I haven't worn a watch. However I keep getting late for work and school.
I'm thinking of geting this as a replacement.
I love the automatic movement and how the second hand just moves so fluidly instead of ticiking from position to position.

I wore one from July 2002 (my birthday) to March 2003 (when I lost it). I have not bothered to get a replacement, and I'm perfectly happy being late sometimes because the watch ripped out my arm hairs.

I wear a cheap plastic casio watch with the general radioactive and evil green illuminator light, and for some reason it can store 30 telephone numbers also. Hey, I could store PI in it and make it the best watch ever.

It makes my wrist smell of sweat.

i haven't worn a watch since my last one broke (i trod on it) back in, um 99 i think.

i had a phone at the time.

i haven't needed a watch since then as my phone is always on me and tells the time.

i do still want 2 watches though.
1 - casual and funky
2 - a nice gold dress watch

I havent warn a watch since my Mickey Mouse watch broke.

I was still a kid then. The most I've done is carried one on a keychain or something.

It was a good watch. Looked nice. Kept good time. God damn little turn knob thingy got lost, battery died,.. Would cost too much to repair it now

I had a Casio watch ( couldn't find an image ) that is probably quite dated now, I got it on my 8th birthday. It's long gone, I had it for a few years, and not one since then. I don't want to get a chintzy one, but I don't have the money for a decent mechanical watch that has fluid movement; doesn't tick.

I can not stand ticking.

I hate wearing watches.
I have the time on my desktop, which I look at for most of the day =(
I have the time in my car
I have the time on my cell phone
I have the time on my PDA
I have the time in the kitchen on the oven
I have a few alarm clocks in my bedroom

So I&#39;ve decided I don&#39;t need to WEAR a watch.

When I was younger, for some reason, people thought that me not wearing a watch was a reason to buy me one as a present. So I do own a few watches which were given to me mostly by my family members who thought "poor kid... he needs a watch." I wore them some time to make it look like I ws enjoying their presents but the fucking things would wiegh down on my wrist, that adjusting thingy would poke into the back of my hand and overall they were a nuisance (take off when doing certain things, put back on etc etc).

So I haven&#39;t worn a watch in ten years or so. I think one of the benefits of not having a watch is that on &#39;those&#39; weekends you never really know what time you came back home... at least I don&#39;t.

I had a watch a little while back, but I lost it when I got mashed. I don&#39;t like
plastic wrist straps they get all skanky with dead skin and other crap, plus they
belong in the eighties.
