Do you always wear a watch?

Just a bit curious here.. Do you always wear a watch? Personally, I do.. In fact, I become uneasy if I leave my watch at home. I'm so time conscious, having no watch seems to be unbearable. But well.. I do know people who are not comfortable with wearing one, like my sister and my boyfriend. How about you? Do you like wearing watches? If not, where do you get the current time? And why not wear, too? Thanks!

I am very time conscious and hyperactive.I want to be punctual and expect everyone to be like that.So I wear a watch and always fix a deadline for everything.Sometimes I wonder whether I am hyperactive inviting hypertension.But I just could not help it.I just cannot do anything without setting a goal of time frame.

nope.i can't wear them all the time. something about my body chemistry messes them up. they'll be fine for a couple of hours,then they start loosing time,and stop. my cousin has the same problem. i just throw one in my pocket,seems to work there.

Pocket watches are good because you donot have to wrry about them getting caught on anything our worry about getting rashes.

I actually don't wear a watch from day to night,because I often use my mobile phone to watch the time.On the other hands,it is also because I will not feel comfortable when I wear a watch

I use to always wear a watch. I even had a pager before cell phones got really popular. LOL!! But I have to say that I have not wore a watch in a long time instead I have my trusty cell phone that tells me what time it is. LOL!! So I don't really wear watches anymore. LOL!!

Yes, I always wear my watch, because it's uncomfortable for me not knowing the time. The second reason I wear it is for fashionable stuff, wearing a descent watch will make you look professional ( if you are working at the office or back ) and look fashionable ( if you are hanging out with buddy or partner ).

I don't wear wrist watch. I remember when I was on my elementary years, my mom used to buy me cheap watch. I end up losing them. My mom did not scold me, because its not really an expensive kind. They are watch from Mc Donalds or Jollibee's Food Chain. When I graduated college. I thought of buying and wearing watch to look sophisticated. On my first salary, I was able to buy an expensive watch for myself. I am very happy using it. I keep it on its case before sleeping. After a week of happiness, I cannot find my watch anymore. My suspect was oyr housemaid, who took it. But since there is no evidence. Then, I don't know who to blame. After that incident, I did not buy watch anymore. I remember, my brother offered to buy watch for me, so I can have one, but I declined. I prefer not to wear one anymore. I got used, not wearing any watch at all. Usually I see time at my computer clock, or at the Wall clock. When I'm mobile, I check time on my cellphone. I don't really need a watch to check time.

as it for me, i was used to being uncomfortable to wear a watch due to the fact that it was forgot by me here or there some times which not only took me lots of time to look for it but more or less made me feel not that good. however, since now i have been married and my lovely wife is so considerate that she almost reminds me of wearing the watch one of the couple as token of marriage for us every time before now i have been aware of wearing it all the time. happy mylotting.

I ALWAYS wear a watch no matter where I go. I hate not having my watch on me since I'm pretty much always on a schedule and what not.

I wear a watch everyday before i have a cellphone,In the high school i wear a watch everyday,in china use cellphone in the high school is forbidden,so the watch is the only way to know the current time.when i upon high school education and get in university,i didn't use watch any time because the cellphone will give me the current time.I think a lot of people have the same reason with me.

I have not had a watch in years, once i had my first mobile phone I never really needed to have a watch. At one time I could not bear to be without one and it used to really bug me if I went out and forgot my watch. If I want to know the time now I just get my phone out.

I wear a watch! It makes me feel good because I actually know what the time is at the moment. I plan on changing my digital watch from it breaks to the old kind. I think they look much cooler and professional.

I only wear a watch if I am going to go out the door, if I am staying at home then I do not wear a watch because every room in the house, including the garage, has at least one big clock on the wall and many rooms have smaller clocks also! I don't like to wear a watch at home as I am always in water, doing dishes etc. and I would spend half of my day taking a watch on and off so it is much more a bother and with all of the clocks around I don't need one at home anyway! But I am much like you and if I go out and forget my watch it runs me crazy...then I find that I have to know the time every 2 seconds!

I only wear a watch if I have to go out on an appointment where timing is essential. I don't like wearing watches or rings on my wrist or on my fingers. I find them a constant irritation. When I get home, I am only too pleased to take off my watch. - Derek

I always have my watch on my wrist except when I am having a bath or doing some washing. I feel very uncomfortable without the watch. My current watch is a Titan brand given to me by a friend who is no more. That is why this watch is very special to me.

Yes I always wear a watch and during times that I forget them I feel so "naked". Like something is missing. I don't own a lot of watches, just about 3 that I can interchange everyday.

That's pretty interesting.. you don't use your wrist watch for time and use the mobile phone instead?
