Always wear a watch. Does'nt feel right when not wearing one ! But thats just me.
I could get by without a watch as an absolute necessity - generally between normal clocks, my phone, all the clocks on computers, televisions and other electrical items I can find the time easily enough, and the few times i am out without access to one of those I probably don't care about punctuality anyway.
At the same time, I still choose to always have a watch on my wrist - always readily to hand, more polite and easier to check, and ultimately it is just something I enjoy wearing and owning.
At this point I have worn a watch for so long it would also just feel weird not to be wearing one...
I could survive without one, but I choose to wear one anyway
Which SOG is that? Are those custom scales?
I don't carry a cell phone and I don't normally wear a watch. There is no clock in my commuting truck either. I mostly never know what time it is unless I'm in the office or in my house.
I'm mostly unconcerned with time.
I always wear a watch and carry a phone. I find a watch is more convenient for telling the time unless I happen to be looking at the phone at that moment. Where my behavior has changed with smart phones is that I now have almost no use for the complications on a watch. good apps do that better and cheaper
Naked without a time piece (pocket watch is my EDC).
My watch is the only EDC item that I can not leave the house with. I've worn a watch just about every day for the last decade so its become a pretty important piece of my life. Even when there is a clock on the wall or I'm looking at my phone I'll still look at my watch for the time.
99,999% with me all the time.
I started wearing a watch about two months ago. Now it is essential 99% of the time.
I wouldn't say a watch is necessary. I sit in front of a computer all day, I just have to look at the corner for the date and time. However, I got used to having a watch on my wrist, so much so, I invested some money to get quality wrist watches, so I can guarantee I will wear them. I find divers particularly useful for me. I don't dive, I can't even swim, but the rotating bezel acts as a countdown for when my meeting starts.
Does my life depend on it? No. Are they handy, classy, and just all around cool? Yes. I don't use my phone for the time because one of my pet peeves is people who have their noses stuck to their tech all of the time. I have been wearing a watch for as long as I remember, provably since I was about 5 or 6, and I can't see myself going without one any time soon.

The only time I take my watch off is to shower. I don't need to take it off even for that but I don't want it getting soap scum on it. I'll forget my wallet before I forget my watch. When I first joined the Navy I went to SERE School and they took my watch. It was worse than being water boarded! I've worn a watch on my left wrist for the last 30 years of my life.
I shower with my watch on and don't have that problem.
I have gotten to the point where my wrist doesn't feel right without my watch on, I can't even sleep if its off
My watch goes off when I go to bed, and back on after my shower in the morning when I dress. It's a basic clothing piece.
What wrist do you guys wear watches on? I'm curious.
The wearing of a wristwatch is not only a convenience but can also show a bit of personal style. I've worn a watch daily since 1968. I wear a watch for the sheer convenience of it.
I find a watch to be necessary for my EDC. Although, I admit, that I'm odd about watches, and generally find myself alone among my peers as to the value I put into wearing a watch.
Firstly, my schedule can be tight, and in between meetings, driving, carrying my gear, a watch is simply more convenient than digging out my phone. I am also less prone to get distracted by checking the time on my watch, as all the smartphone distractions are absent.
Secondly, I'm into men's fashion, and I feel a watch is necessary to a completed outfit. Classier to check the time on your wrist sort of thing.
Thirdly, most watches I wear have more than timekeeping features that I find useful. Even the most basic watch can be utilized to determine a more accurate bearing than staring at the sun alone.
Fourthly, I just love watches
Oddly, my left which happens to be my strong hand.

No. I like to wear watches and I usually do but it is not a necessary piece of gear. I like it and it is convenient but sometimes (such as today) I go without.
When I'm working I'm not wearing a wristwatch at all.
For me it is a must have item. Just yesterday I was not familiar with the pin system on how my new watch band is held together. So instead of of poking around with a 1000 dollar watch I am not familiar with I took it to my watch guy in the mall I trust. So while the wife and I are waiting with a coffee and tea a gentlemen asks me the time. I said sorry I don't know even though I had the phone in my hand never thinking of checking it. Where my wife goes straight to her phone to tell the man. While all her watches have dead batteries and just wears them as jewelry and not something to tell time with.
