What kind of watch do you wear?

Been a couple years since I have mine to my watch guy to have some work done and it's a long story on why I won't be seeing it again or at least any time soon...but time to look into getting a new one. Couple hundred is pretty much my limit.

I can't wear watches...they don't last long with me, being as clumsy as I am.

I wish I could wear some exotic watch without worrying about it.

HAHAHA. Guys he said $200 is his limit. But just so I fit in and I like posting this pic as much as possible.

Left is an AirWolf which is the sports, working in the yard watch and the B-1 on the right is the going out watch, has a black leather band on it currently though.

I like the way Wink Rolls.

I love watches, but don't wear them much. Right now I'm rocking my company's branded swiss watch. Nothing special.

I do like Fossil Watches. Inexpensive, durable, and at any time you can pay $25 and have it pretty much every part on it fixed.

I usually wear a more stylistic watch, rather than a baller watch. I have a wide assortment from

Kenneth cole, Diesel, Fossil, DKNY, 1 from Guess. Most are leather bound, but some are metal.

I usually get them from The Buckle, as they usually have a nice assortment of accessories.

Diesel watches are my favorite though.

My everyday watch is something I picked when I was stationed in Moscow...it the Soviet version of a Rolex the "POLJOT" susposedly the same version of watch that Yuri Gagarin wore on his first space flight...I think POLJOT means pilot I also have a Swiss made Mido Multi Star, that my Dad gave me on my 18th birthday, Mido has been making watches since 1918 and amongst collectors are pretty rare finds. All my watches are mechanical watches...except my dress watch which is a Modavo Musuem piece.

I have a Citizen Chronograph, got it for $125 like 4 years ago. If I was going to buy a watch for $200, I would probably get a Citizen Eco-Drive.

I have a Relic Wet Multifunction that I've been wearing for about 5 years, I had a Wenger Swiss Army before that I liked.

I've been thinking about getting another Wenger, but I haven't seen anything I liked enough to buy.
