I wear a watch to keep track of time. That being said, as long as I am wearing a watch, or anything else, I enjoy a certain sense of style (or lack thereof :001_unsure:) and enjoy accessories to complement that style.

I voted both because different venues dictate differently... the common constant for me of course is to have a timeppiece, otherwise I would just wear a bracelet for jewelry. But when in a more formal venue (bussiness or dressed up evening wear for instance), it becomes as much a timekeeping piece as decoration (jewelry) and I wear the DateDay. In non formal venues and circumstances, it's a reliable timekeeping tool, and I go with the divers.

Good thread!! ... Regards :001_smile:

Both here for me as well, I like their timekeeping properties but because I like how they look and the ability for Invictas to draw attention to my wrist, I'd say they are jewelry as well.

@Triton, why only beaters? All of mine get exposed to water equally, of course, they are all a minimum of 100m resistant (1) and the rest are 200m+. Part of the reason I like divers are their ability to withstand water and nicks and dings. Just IMO of course.

Auto how are you?I voted both since the first reason to wear a watch is to know the time.That would be the instrument part now for the jewelry part.Own a lot of divers that will not see any ocean or lake.Own a lot of chronographs that will never time anything.So why have them the look so I think that would make them jewelry.

I don't really like to wear a watch that I consider stupid looking, but first and foremost a watch is an instrument. That it looks good is secondary.

I wore something along these lines for the better part of a decade, perhaps longer.



Watch accurate to one-half second a day, Chronograph, Countdown timer, Calculator/w four-key memory, several alarm modes, 100 page data bank for schedules and telephone numbers.

It was quite an instrument in a very convenient package.

The cell phone now will do most of those things, plus make telephone calls, send text messages and take pictures.

I have a friend I work with who wears a watch every day. He has five watches and none of them work. He said he feels naked without a watch on his wrist. Definitely jewerly for him; both for myself.

time telling primarily because there isn't much other reason for wearing a miniture clock on your wrist. jewelry secondary because what else would you call a bracelet that supports all those rubies? ;)

Timepieces that say a little about who I am. Automatic, Scratch Resistant, a few seconds off a day, and in need of a good wind(or unwind) every once in a while.

They look incredible, fit my wrist right out of the box, and are very sturdy - these watches are my definition of "a mans watch - made for men".

That sounds like something Kramer would do--vintage, of course!
