Not anymore.
I like wearing a watch - I find it much more convenient than digging into my purse for my cell phone.
I wish I could still wear one, but since I started working in child care I've broken every watch I've owned within 3 months of buying it. (I don't mean the battery runs out, but that I actually physically snap some part of the watch. I like roughhousing with the kids; watches don't).

I used to wear one daily when I worked at the movies and it was required so I could tell our guests what time it was whenever asked.

However lately I've left it at my friend's house twice, maybe subconsciously I don't want one?

I do at work, because the second hand is necessary sometimes. I generally don't if I'm not working, though. My work watch is ugly, and I wouldn't want to wear it with normal clothes.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 7/1/11 - 4:58:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only at work, so I can tell the time when I'm not allowed to have my phone on me.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 7/2/11 - 8:56:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it feels strange to go without one.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 7/2/11 - 10:26:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes and im 11
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 7/2/11 - 3:25:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I've had a watch on my wrist every day of my life since I was 7. I feel naked without it.

does a medical bracelet count
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 7/2/11 - 5:38:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
its so old the camo part of it is actually almost a totally separate bracelet

I wear a watch. A quick glance at my wrist is so much easier than picking a cell up from my pocket.
Besides, my watch - like the way I dress & what cell I use - sends a signal of who I am (or want to be).

I want a fancy pocket watch.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/4/11 - 9:03:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
I imagine most teachers and lecturers do - it's a pain relying on rooms to have clocks or leaving your phone on
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/4/11 - 12:11:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I need to. Otherwise, I keep looking at my bare wrist to see what time it is...

There's something called the NASA Syndrome, discovered in the early 70s. People with NASA tend to look at their watch every few minutes, like if they had some imaginary countdown to keep track of.
But if they do that, and you ask them just a few moments later what time it is, they have no idea.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/4/11 - 3:42:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I dont because I just use my cell

This.

And I think the decline in wrist watches has more to do with cellphones. Wall clocks and car clocks have been around for a really long time.

I do, because I have a nice watch that I like to wear.

I agree. But now you can get the time on your microwave, the oven, on payphones, on billboards, it's everywhere.

has anyone mentioned it's in the corner of computer screens? that must be one of the most commonly used 'timepieces' these days.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/11/11 - 6:37:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yep, ever since I was about 8 years old.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/11/11 - 6:37:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not the same watch the whole time (I'm on my 4th).
6 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 7/24/11 - 10:03:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah.
6 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/12/11 - 11:29:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Im a girl, we normally dont.
5 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 12/4/11 - 1:22:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope.
5 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 12/4/11 - 1:36:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
