    Although I'm fond of fine watches, my favorite is one that has Mickey Mouse hanging on the second hand.

    Maybe I'm just not classy....but I use my cell phone to tell the time. If I don't have it with me, then I just guess by looking at the sun.

    I just bought a Casio Forester analog/digital for $25 and I am darn happy.
    I do plan to buy some plain old wind up watch...you never know when an EMP wave is going to hit.

    I collect American pocket watches. Lots of class in those old watches and such precision. Understand where you guys are coming from.

    WHat has spoiled me is not the heaviness of the watch in steel, its the titanium ones that are lite as all get out...
