    I have 2 nice Seiko watches I haven't worn in over a decade. It just seems redundant to wear them.

    My daily work watch. Tough as nails. You should see the stress testing this thing goes through.

    I have a new Samsung Gear watch but the band breaks out my wrist in blisters.

    Giving it to my grandson Simon.

    Haven't worn a watch for over 25 years.

    It's time when I get there.

    Circa 1988 Casio AE-20W. I worked all summer in 1988 mowing lawns to get this watch. Then lost it doing the 1 mile swim at Boy Scout camp. 30 years later I bought this replacement on ebay. My life is complete.

    The very famous Seiko SKX on a leather deployment strap. This is the watch that was worn by Robert Redford in the movie “All is Lost”.

    Zenith Surf Automatic with a ultra high beat movement of 36k, circa 1974. If you know the history of Zenith you know this was one of the last watches they made when the quartz revolution happened. The CEO of the factory ordered that all the automatic watch making tooling be destroyed. A very smart employee hid all the tooling in an empty part of the factory and it wasn’t discovered until decades later. This is the reason we have the Zenith El Primero today.

    Seiko Premier Kinetic Drive. This is actually an amazing watch mechanically. It even adjusts for leap years.

    Seiko Prospex. Solar powered. I like it because the inner compass turns around. Pretty useless.

    Tempus World Time Diver. Circa 1975. It was so ugly I had to have it. I got more but I’ll give you guys a rest.

    I think you have that confused with a potted plant. At least that’s what I call her.
