Do any of you wear your watch to bed?

Not sure where I picked it up from, other than to easily see what time it is in the middle of the night, but I've always worn my watch to bed. This "habit" is pretty much the reason luminosity is important to me. I don't like LED bedside clocks! A wind up Big Ben or the like is OK. Still I prefer to get my nighttime time from a simple glance of my wrist.

Pretty much I only remove my watch when I shower. Heck, maybe it should get a daily shower also. :lol:

Any benefits to not wearing an automatic to bed? I wore my Rolex to bed for years and it still works and keeps good time.

I always wear my watch to bed. I really can't see a reason for taking it off. I don't flail at night, so I never bump it. I, too, glance at my watch for the time. I guess any reason at all to look at it is fine by me. Before retiring, I give my watch a shot of light (when switching off the bedside lamp). As for showers, no way. The water pressure can't be good for it and soap residue eventually builds up. Also, I love showers, so it's the one time of day I don't care what time it is.

No matter what I wore during the day, my Ball NighTrain almost always gets the call at night. It is one of my favorite watches with a highly legible 43mm dial, and a fairly flat 11.1 mm width.

With a Don Ginsler Black Buffalo, and Axel Jost Deployant with screw in v spring bar, it is a great all purpose watch.

The night time show is second to none. Super Luminova watches will start out brighter but the tritium tubes are consistent and do not need charging. Sorry, I'm rambling...too much coffee:blink:

I have been wearing my 8926 to bed, but for the last several nights, I've been winding it at bedtime, instead.

I'm really just trying to find some optimal way to keep it wound. I don't mind wearing it when I'm home, but it is only one watch in the collection when I go out.

I think winding it each day is the course I'm going to take, using caution not to over stress the components.

Anything with good lume. But my go-to watch for bed would have to be my Timex Reefgear - nylon strap, indiglo and alarm. Owned it 4 years now and still haven't changed the battery. Beat the heck out of it at the beach, though. It was my everything watch until about a year ago:
