    It has never occurred to me to keep a watch on while I sleep and I really don't care if you do or not either.

    Just bored and wondered,no Judging here........Probably?

    Of course. Currently have an ArmourLite Field watch, quartz with trit tubes. Only take it off to shower.

    Home. Never.
    Traveling. Sometimes.
    Just depends on the situation.
    Sometimes I do it on my travels just because it's easily forgotten if you suddenly have to leave in a hurry. Sometimes because knowing the time is crucial.

    I never take my watch of, I am a volunteer firefighter and it is much easier to see what time it is with my watch then fumble with my phone so it never comes off. This would be the main reason I chose what is sleep.

    Nope, that'd be way too uncomfortable. It does sit on my desk and serves as a backup alarm set 5 minutes after my alarm clock. Very important because I am a master at getting out of bed, walking across the room, turning off the alarm, and going back to sleep without realizing I was ever awake.

    I could see taking off a large heavy watches like those 52mm mammoths.

    I always wear my watch unless I have to remove it for safety reasons at work. Sometimes while falling asleep I find the 8Hz ticking of the movement soothing. I don't claim to be normal, judge away. I also like seeing the lume and always knowing the time.

    Yes I always wear a watch to bed. Very rarely is there not a timepiece on my arm. Some of them I don't wear to bed because they become uncomfortable so I'll switch one out to something comfy.

    I have a permanent watch tan line. I only take it off now to shower. I had LASIK in 2001 and before that I couldn't even see my clock next to my bed. I've worn a watch for the last 37 years every minute of the day. In 1991 I went to the Navy's SERE School. The Waterboarding didn't freak me out but taking my watch from me freaked me the :censored: out!

    No and I never had, i don't even wear one around the home. In bed it could be a moment killer, clonking the Mrs with a hefty Seiko Diver.

    Yep, I only take mine off to shower or wash the strap. It helps if it's a low profile watch with a comfortable strap. I couldn't imagine wearing a chunky Casio to bed.

    If I wore my Seiko 5 to bed, I wonder if it would keep time?

    I have a Momentum Flatline 42 that I never take off. It's thin enough that it never bothers me. It slides right in any of my jackets or long sleeve shirts, has a screw down crown, sapphire crystal, and is water resistant to 100 meters. It doesn't make any noise and keeps perfect time. I wish it was solar like my eco drives or g shock, but I still like it a lot. I only wear my g shock if I know I'll need a timer or stopwatch.

    I hear that!!!!!!!!!!
    Before retirement, every minute was critical. :frantic:
    My last day before retirement was the last time I wore a watch.

    If you've been 'normally' active whilst wearing it, should be no problem. I take mine off when going to sleep, and its still ticking along very nicely when I wake and put it back on the next morning. The Seiko 5 series seems to have a respectable power reserve; useful even during the day when you're not so active; e.g., doing desk work or on the computer. The amount of reserve sort of depends at least in part on which movement your particular watch has. Check Seiko websites and I think you'll find data.

    L'chaim!

    Wearing your watch keeps it from turning into a cat toy in the middle of the night....

    Yes, prefer one with good lume, because I need to know the time all the times :)
