    I belonged to a forum a few years ago and a member posted a similar thread about everyone's favorite time piece. Because of that thread I decided to purchase my current favorite watch a Luminox #3001, picture below. It's not the classiest watch, but my every day choice. When my wife makes me clean up to go out, I wear a Citizen Eco Drive Titanium.

    Since we have so many people from around the world, I would like to hear about some of your favorite time pieces.

    Edit: So it looks like I told a lie. I do not have an Eco Drive as I thought (shows how much I wear my Citizen), it's actually a Solar-Tech 180. My apologies.

    I love the Eco drive watches. I don't have a favorite watch as I own many and different ones work best for different events.

    I have 2 watches that I stuffed away when moved and have yet been able to find them. Fortunately, my favorite is still around and I wear it daily. I have the Citizen eco-drive titanium Skyhawk Blue Angels watch.

    I have too many, was on a watch kick back in the 70's, right now between a wonderful thanks to Dad, Swiss time piece in gold/silver, brown leather band, typical all black-studly Timex iron man for work and cycling. an all Indian silver, encrusted turquoise watch and band made by Lorus. avaition watch with too many dials and what-nots I have never figured out. . . . . though rather cool looking I must say

    All them hands, small, big, second. Too confusing I like digital. Updates itself every night from the colorado time signal, has built-in solar cells to recharge itself and makes a great cup of coffee.

    I'm with Mike. I go digital, Casio Gshock. I use the alarm on it all the time, and back when my knees would permit me to run, I used the stopwatch. I can just glance at it and tell the time, don't have to figger out what all dem dar fancy-pants hands are doin. On the plus side, my daughter has figured out the Indiglo button, and loves to make the watch turn blue. Hey, if it keeps her occupied while I change a poopy, that's good enough for me.

    I have some fancier watches, a Fossil and something else that I was given when her Dad passed away (the man collected watches like Lucky collects empty beer bottles on payday). I don't think I've even pulled those out of the box in years.

    Max,

    I've read a lot about Suunto watches and understand that many countries special forces wear them. I fear my Luminox will have to die before my wife lets me buy a Suunto. That looks very nice though.

    I am wearing an old but functional (like myself) Omega Seamaster Professional.. It loses about 1min/mo and for an 'auto' non-digital/batteray operated watch - it is great.. and heavy.

    I have various
    A velcro strapped Sekonda with hands and a digital display (worn for holidays)
    A cheap Casio digital (worn for work)
    A stainless steel Sekonda non-digital (worn for days out etc)
    A Roamer 1 day wind-up watch which was presented to my father for 10 years service at his employer; back engraved with the details, this was in 1961 (before I was born)
