Hint: the author's name rhymes with Marlin Smellison.

Hahah, good hint. Harlan Ellison it is.

I think a nice watch is essential. You can tell a lot about someone's personality by the watch they wear.

I am afraid to wear watches as I fear being reminded of my own mortality.

Heh.

I'd never really thought about this before, but it seems like I put a watch on whenever I put shoes or boots on. But, if I'm tooling around the neighborhood or beach (pretty much anywhere in flipflips or sneakers), I generally don't bother putting my watch on.

I've noticed, generally speaking, that men fall short with their selection of shoes and watches, on a regular basis.

Another distinction are their choices of pens, and cars.

I have to agree with this.

"Another distinction are their choices of pens, and cars."

I have found that a man's choice of stationary is critical to a tasteful presentation of personal style. My own preference is for a hand pressed linen and papyrus cross, sold exclusively in the better salons under the trade name "Continental Mulatto".

I carry a cell phone with me all the time and sometimes my PDA, plus I am in and out of my car all day, but I still wear a watch.

I'm only 19, in college and working in investment real estate, so I do use my cell alot, but I have gotten used to watches and love them. I feel naked with out one. I have a Kenneth Cole, Seiko, and a Movado. I actually do use them to tell time, but style is another factor as well.

Never worn a watch in my life until 2 months ago. I got a Stowa Antea KS, which I like a lot. I too, just used my cell phone to tell time, and still check the time with it it out of habit occasionally. I got the watch soley as a fashion accessory.

I take that back...I did wear a watch before... in the first grade, and it turned into a robot

For now, just not worth the money to me.

Nor will it ever be.

I'm 21 and I never leave home without a watch... in fact the only time I wont wear one is with a suit as I currently don't own a small dress watch (there's nothing more boring than a large sports watch - yes rolexes and brietlings etc. count - worn in a dressy situation...)
