I've heard that the kind of watch you wear is a good indicator of your personality. It kind of makes sense I guess. Though I do think it's definitely more art than science. For the record, I wear a Swiss Army watch, dull stainless steel with a black face and subdued numbers. Best watch I've ever owned. I use to wear Timex but they ALL konked out on me. Never again. I spent the C-note on the Swiss Army and never looked back. I've had the battery replaced once at the jewelry store and that's it. Beautiful. It's been said that this type of watch says you are rugged, practical, honest and straightforward, and a little bit mysterious. Hmm.
