What time is it?

Has there already been a "Show us your watches" thread?

I'd love to see what timepieces everyone here carries, wears or displays in their home or office.

If one already exists, pls kindly point the way.

If not, let's see those horological wonders.

do you wear them all (not at the same time of course) or just collection items. Very impressive

at this point i only wear 2-3 regularly. the rest is a mix.

some i keep for sentimental value, some for the actual value, the rest because in this economy they can't be sold for the value that they're worth.

After not having a watch since the Timex Ironman I wore religiously as a kid/teenager, I finally picked one up a few months back:

Veering slightly off topic, what nice women's watches are out there? Recommendations?

I can't wear anything with base metal.
