    I wear anything I can find...and i don't really wear them, as they don't work on me! I also can't stand to have them on my wrist, so I usually keep them in my pocket.

    Browns, I'm the same way! Watches usually don't keep good time when I wear 'em, and I can't stand to wear 'em for long, gotta take them off after a few hours. . . I even looked at a clock once @ work, and it stopped!! Spooky . . .

    I wear my purple timex rush in my pocket. Can't stand wearing it on my wrist at work. I hate when I get water under the strap from washing my hands. Don't want to get poop on it either - nevermind all the other nasties I come across each day.

    I started out wearing little kids' watches because I am allergic to most metals and kids' watches have either elastic bands under the watch or plastic backs. Hard to find a grownup watch with a second hand that doesn't have a metal back that touches you.

    I have several because they're inexpensive and I keep losing them. Now I don't think I'd change because so many of my patients enjoy seeing which watch I am wearing!

    I had a faithful and true Timex watch for years, but it eventually bit the dust. May it rest in Timex heaven now as it served me well! :kiss I'm in the market for another watch, but haven't gotten around to buying one as yet.

    I don't really like to wear them anyway. Only wore them to work. Sometimes I just put it in my pocket rather than wear it.

    I, too, am allergic to the backings of watches. A good remedy for this is to glue a piece of felt material on the back of the watch. That way it doesn't come in direct contact with the skin.

    ok does anyone here have trouble w/battery watches? i kill batteries like crazy. someone told me it's a chemical thing w/me. so i find a hard time finding watches for work...usually wear a necklace type for work for that reason. i know, i am weird. that is a given.
