IMHO, you should buy a watch if you want to know the time - anything else is almost irreverent!

And that certainly includes "vanity" purchases!
If you want to know the time, look at your phone. Watches are more of a fashion statement these days, or a collectors item. You wear one because you like the way it looks. That goes especially to those automatic watches, cause they aren't that good at telling the time.

I would wholehearted agree with you - except that I don't use my phone much at all and need to ensure it's charged & ON before I can see the time, so a simplish watch suits me better, and so I "90% wholeheartedly" agree with you .

Haha, my problem is that I use my phone so much the battery tends to be flat... So I carry a powerbank with me...

I expect it is nearly as big as some of "those" watches!

5" screen, but like 8 mm thick? Plus case maybe 10 mm. I don't like big watches.

My other hobby is watch collecting. Nothing too extravagant but I do rather like this one - Sinn 757UTC Tegimented. What watch(es) do you have?
My dream ...

My watch is a Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Air King Date. My wife gave it to me, as her engagement gift, about 34 years ago. I've had it cleaned once and the crystal replaced (my fault) and it has been as reliable as the old saying goes...'as a Swiss watch'.

I treasure it because it was a wonderful gift from my very wonderful wife.
