Never ever. And I find it leads to my being more punctual. eeenteresting.

i have no sense of time. at all. no concept of it. for what i presume are the same reasons i can look at a crowded room and not at all be able to tell you how many people are in it, nor can i gauge distances. my mind just doesn't seem to be able to tally minutes well. so i require a watch or a cell phone or something at almost all times, otherwise i'm hosed.

Not that I don't use my cell phone or other time telling pieces but it must be something internal. Watches just mess me up. I get several comments from my actors that I can't be a stage manager with out a watch but I am always dead one,,,even when they test me... and my curtain always goes up 8PM sharp!

I look at watches and think, $20?! Time's not that important to me. I should get one though because I'm obsessed with the time.

I have a billion watches. When I have a watch that's working, I wear it every hour of the day except to shower. Feel naked without it. However, I have this annoying tendency to not be able to get around to changing batteries when they die. So i usually just end up getting another cheap watch. So I have a ton with dead batteries and not a damn thing else wrong with them. I haven't worn one in months becuase I'm unwilling to continue that cycle but I'm still too lazy to get the batteries changed. So...while my preferred nature is to have a watch on at all times...not so much happening in practice.

I used to wear an old fashioned watch on a chain. Now though that I have to carry a pager and cell phone for my job frequently, I just use that as my watch.

My cell phone is my watch. For years now.
So my left arm is completely tanned without any pale parts in between ;-D

my cell phone is my watch, as well.
when i went to japan, i forgot about this and my cell phone died en route, and i forgot my charger - not like the phone worked there anyway, but i had to buy a cheap little hello kitty watch to keep track of time :P esp. since i got tired of asking people and struggling to understand the answer ^_^

I only use my cell... so when I go on vacation, like, out of the country or whatever, and I leave it at home... I always end up having to buy a watch.
So, like andrea, I have a lot of cheap watches sitting around in my sock drawer... but unlike andrea, they all have working batteries.

Exactly. Although I will take it off at night.
My sister never wears one. She discovered that when she had one, she was constantly checking it to make sure it was right and was really neurotic and obsessive about being exactly on time. And that she was already anal retentive enough-- she needed to free herself. Pretty much the same reason she got rid of her bathroom scale-- she kept compulsively weighing herself.
To me, it just feels like what's supposed to be on my wrist. I mean, I check the time, obviously, but no more than one would normally.

my watch, my athens olympics swatch, ticks VERY VERY LOUDLY.
i discovered this the first time I tried to put it on.

I carry a watch. It goes in my pocket. And I love it so. Although I'll admit it sometimes makes for awkward situations because it's impossible to look at it covertly.
I wear my watch whenever I'm out of the house, it is part of getting dressed. I wear it in the house too but for some reason it bothers me when I'm on the computer.
My watch is one of my favorite possessions. I keep my phone book in it, I'd be lost without it.

i sit in front of a computer most of the day, and if i'm away from the computer, i usually have my cell on.

the battery died and i didn't think it was worth it to replace it. sad, really.

i used to try to wear watches, but i kept killing them dead. i had some fairly nice ones, but after a few weeks, maybe a month or two, they'd just stop working and be unfixable. after i killed a few fairly expensive watches i started buying cheap ones, but when those died just the same they weren't even worth trying to have fixed.
so i gave up wearing a watch regularly. now i own a few, but i rarely wear them. in addition to not wanting to wreck a perfectly nice timepiece, i find the feeling of having one on my wrist to be uncomfortable.
sometimes i'll carry one in my coat pocket or purse, but usually i rely on the cell phone, the car clock, the computer clock or whatever other clock is around me.
i'm sure I mentioned this to you but Johnny Evers, the Hall of Fame second baseman of Tinkers to Evers to Chance fame could never wear a watch, they'd stop working after a short time just like you. He'd be given watches at dinners and such and he'd give them away since it was a waste if kept them himself.

Since I'm a little obsessive over time details, I find myself always wearing a watch.
Especially because I drive on the thruway... and it has all these nice numbers every tenth of a mile... and I know where my exits are... and I calculate the time it's going to take (barring traffic) in my head.
Maybe I should just listen to the music a little more.
I do that all the time but I use my car's clock. It is easier to read while driving.
I actually go further I say, How long would it take at 80mph, 75mph, and 70mph. I don't bother with sixty since that is just a mile a minute.

I never take off my watch, it's waterproof...to 100 meters. I look at it all the time, then immediately forget what time it is and have to look at it again.

When I wore a wristwatch, it literally never came off. (Waterproof, I even showered with it.)
An ex bf of mine observed the fact that while my car/computer/alarm clocks persistantly end up the wrong time, my wristwatches keep perfect time.
This (seemingly) extends to pocketwatches. I have a pocketwatch-style watch that hangs from my belt when I'm working. And a proper pocketwatch (with a skull&crossbones design in enamal on the case) that I wear to anything more dressy that I'm still wearing pants to. (Not that much short of a wedding - and sometimes not even that - gets me into a skirt or dress, but whatever.)
