    I've never been able to use analog watches, too much brainpower required to work them out when i usually most want to use them (Ie. first thing in the morning mostly)

    So Digital-only for me :)

    have had a Casio digital watch for the past 10 years, was unique as it had a tiny vibrator motor like a mobile phone instead of a beeper, very handy.

    When it's casing had almost died (plastic, bah, i'd kill for a durable metal housing version of it) i settled for this new one, much the same as my old watch, but with a metal casing and trades the vibrate alarm for the UK-wide radio clock setting utility (ie: updates the time to an atomic clock once per day)

    Also it is one of the few watches that adjusts small enough for my wrist, which is amazingly thin :p (i can circle my wrist in one hand making a circle with my thumb and little finger ;) )

    Yeah, me too. That's why I went to pocket watches. I hated the watches sliding around on my wrist. Pocket is better, Assuming you have a pocket! Must remember the females and the kilt wearers amongst us.

    Me too, but I don't consider my wrists to be amazingly thin. Maybe most people can?

    my watches:
    a Breitling replica (as I am to cheap to buy the real thing) for dressed up functions,
    and a Gul for everyday use (needs a new strap).

    It's a Lotus Type 1 Watch, i got it a couple of years ago. It's nice to look at but uncomfortable to wear :(. Cost £175 when i got it

    I think it's meant to look like a disc brake....

    I think the orange part as the caliper and the silver rim as the disc.

    For the people scared to wear expensive watches: if you buy a proper watch, it will last you forever (although it may need servicing every so often).
    The Omega Speedmaster has been to the moon ffs, and a lot of Breitlings, Omegas, etc are designed for military/diving use.

    Swatch Irony Chrono "Toxin", awesome watch, I've had it for years now and it's never let me down. A new strap and 2 new batteries, and it's still going strong, worn every day.

    Automatics/normal windups shouldn't be less accurate - after all, if they are of decent quality you should be able to adjust their speed at a proper watch shop.
    My dad has had his two for years now, they are both far older than me, one is about 35.

    edit:
    good good, its is very similar to mine which I hope will last a long time.

    A manual/automatic will never be as accurate as a quartz watch. Even certified chronographs are not as accurate.

    Chronometer not chronograph, a chronograph, strictly, a timekeeper that leaves a written record of its going or the going of an associated timepiece; but generally, a watch with a centre seconds hand that can be started, stopped and returned to zero at will.

    Chronometer, well there's a pretty good wikipedia article about it's definition.
