Looking at somewhat higher end names...anyone have a brand or model they specifically like or dislike?

Currently looking at Breitlings, but I'm not 100% sure.

I have a Tag that I received for college graduation. It's a great watch and I've had no problems with it to this day. Great watch company.

I have my eyes on an Omega that I'd love to own down the road. I love their watches.

I have a Tag now. I love it, but I think I want a little variety.

Now I have my eye on a Raymond Weil that I like. I'm not sure what I want to do.

I have a stainless Rolex date just I got for my high school graduation many moons ago, still works perfectly.

I've always had problems with my watches and have basically given up but I did get a nice Bvlgari knock off in China last summer. Shockingly it doesn't work anymore.

Never wore one, have had many gifted to me, never wore one for a day, clocks are everywhere now too. A watch is essentially a piece of jewelry nowadays from what I can tell.

All the nice watches I ever got I seemed to break or lose. So I just buy cheap Timex's now.

Most of the time now when you ask someone for the time, they look at their cell phone.

I used to use my cell phone, but I am in and out of schools and churches a lot for work. They tend to get a bit agitated if your phone rings, so I don't chance forgetting to turn it off. I have a Fossil watch that I got several years ago and I absolutely love it.

I like big chunky watches. I have an Invicta that's roughly the size of a mid-70's satellite TV dish. It actually dwarfs my diving watch.

Cellphones have completed negated the need....

As an accessory, I am sure they are still quite desired--just not by me.

Nice watch, mind if I ask how much you dropped?

I wear a watch every day. I prefer to get the time from my watch as opposed to my cellphone, etc. Probably habit, but I hate the days I forget to put my watch on.

This is the one I wear on most days: Bulova Men's #96B75 - It's durable and doesn't have a huge head on it. It doesn't swivel on your wrist and you don't have to have it on tight to keep it from swiveling.

I hate wearing watches.

Don't know why, but I always have.

A nice watch is like a nice pen. It makes you feel good to have one.

Nice watch. I'm more of a fan of the round face, but that is pretty sharp.

I'm not a big fan of wearing watches. When I'm spending special time with my lady friends, I can't decide whether it's more smooth for me to leave it on or take it off.
