    Trust me, you don't want us office workers opening up anything on the copier. We might believe we have the ability to fix something.

    On a serious note. I enjoy wearing a watch and always having the ability to see the time. I could do without, but I like my watch.

    I have found that wearing a watch gives me a single, consistently-located source of the current time and date. Rather than hunt for a computer screen, or take my phone out, it's always in the same place on my wrist. I like that little bit of routine. The only place I don't really look at my watch is while driving; otherwise, I look at the watch over almost any other time display.

    Well said dplafoll, it is about consistency.

    I wear one daily, it's weird without one. Even though I usually have my phone I still check my watch most of the time.

    I quit wearing one several years ago. I kept breaking them at work. Although, I never bought anything expensive to wear to work (HVAC), it was still aggravating. Seems like the last one I bought maybe only lasted a few days. I stopped wearing one a work and just got in the habit of looking at my phone. Eventually just stopped wearing one when not a work too. I've probably wore one 10 times the last five years maybe.

    Yes during the week an it's quicker than the phone and more style on the weekend.

    I almost always wear an ABC watch for the same reasons others described. Quicker than the phone, has a compass if I need it and I like using the altimeter at times, not to mention if its solar powered it'll never run out of juice.
