Always worn a watch from a very young age about the only time I take it off is when I'm in the bath/shower.Never had an expensive watch[my cheap ones tell the time just as well]a jewellers on the local market does battery changes for 2.50p a go so that's where I go on the few occasions when a battery is needed[they do last a good few years].

Was it a Timex? :o :D ;)

Everyone who had a watch then had a Timex! ;D ;D :y

All the boys had the same Timex for Christmas back in the sixties. The only difference being the choice between a black or silver dial.

If you can buy five batteries for 1.54 including P&P it makes you wonder what they cost to produce.

About two thirds of SFA is my guess. ;)

At that price they sound like Chinese clones, which probably means a battery change every month. ::) ::) ::)

Yes....very likely, even though they say they are original. Time (no pun intended) will tell. Still working after a week. ;)

I like wearing a watch when out and about, especially walking the dog in the woods. Don't want to be arsed pulling my phone out all of the time.

They tend not to ride in the woods. Too many trees in their way.  ::)

You mean to say you haven't got lads going around on scramblers who love the challenge of going through woods, let alone everywhere else? :o :o :D ;)

My first watch[possibly even first couple]was indeed a Timex. :y I find a watch more convenient than mobile phone,with the phone I have to hoik it out of my pocket and get it to light up[or whatever it's called for the screen not to be blank]then replace it into pocket,with the watch it's just a quick glance at my wrist.

Exactly, it is still the easiest way to know the time whenever you want to. :y :y

Besides, for people like Field Marshal Opti it must be so morale boosting flashing your Rolex (I wish I could!)  8) 8) ;D ;D ;)

Don't like Rolex watches.

There is an old saying......the only thing worse than a fake Rolex is a real one.

Rolex seem to have the uncanny knack of making a 10,000 watch look so gaudy and trashy that it looks like a 10 watch from a petrol station. :)

Well, Rolex is a charity, so will be a balls up from start to finish.
