    I am not a collector and don't 'love' wearing them either.
    This is what I have:

    Timex (was gifted to me 11 years ago on my wedding)
    Citizen
    Casio
    Armani Exchange
    Fossil
    fitbit (it shows time and I wear only this)

    I had a Rip Curl diving watch for about 10 years (still have it)

    Had a few new bezels, but eventually a couple of the little hands broke and I couldn't be bothered fixing it. Haven't worn a watch since - about 5 years now.

    Remind me to shield my eyes when you're walking down the street.

    I wore the Rolex one to the Good Guys one day and the sales consultant added me to their VIP list (what ever that means) ha ha

    Since my DKNY gifted watch fell apart, I just carry my iPhone.

    I don't wear a watch (or a wedding ring.)

    I'm not a collector either but I wear a Longines that I've had for 2 years and has been repaired three times during that period and had the battery changed twice.
    It has a second hand which moves every six seconds.
    I expect it will die any second (boom boom), when it does I will not be purchasing another Longines!

    I hope that's not a second hand joke.

    I wear a retro digital casio, a reproduction of the first digital casio released. It was given to me by a friend, and people comment regularly. Its good fun, and would have to be valued at least $15.

    I have a very bad problem. Timepieces, as well as cars, I regard as completely about utility and nothing about status.

    I have had many people berate me for this character fault.

    a gifted Guess watch that I have been wearing for 4 years now. the thing I liked about this is that it always looks shiny making it look like a brand new watch all the time. (no pun intended)
