    If you had to choose an everyday watch, which one?

    I want to get a casual watch to wear everyday. I normally keep my watch on 24/7. This includes showering, sleeping, etc. The only time I take off my watch is at airports.

    I already have a "professional" watch with a metal band. This time around, I want something casual & sporty....but can pass for professional if need be.

    If you won a raffle and had to choose between these two, which would you choose?

    Both look tuff and zombie proof but I like the first one. I always like numbers on my watch faces and all 12 of them too.

    I too like numbers on the face, but only if they look good. But in this case, I'd go with #2, because the numbers facing in different directions on a clock face is a pet peeve of mine.

    Then again, the second lacking numbers on the face, then having giant second markers on the "bezel" is kind of annoying too.

    This is why it took me something like a month to find a watch I liked.

    #1 looks a bit more professional. #2 looks a little like a diver's watch.

    neither. I'm a huge fan of Nixon (I've had one for about six years now, have only had to replace the battery):

    I can't see the second one.

    I'm with c0urt, I get rashes from rubber straps if I don't take them off after a few hours. Also, the heat from showers isn't great for a watch, from what I've read.

    I like the numbers on number 1.

    Personally I look for titanium watches - so much lighter than the steel ones. Seiko had one design that was offered in steel and ti so I was easily able to compare. Wow, the steel was like wearing an anchor.

    define "professional?"

    if you want a beater that can take abuse, these may be worth looking into.

    I didn't see the second one, but, I would go with the first one because it is a Casio. Their stuff has always held up well for me. Things happen to me that don't even think of happening to other people.
    My work place has a jewelry policy, so I carry a Colibri skeleton pocket watch. It's mechanical,
    loses a couple of minutes a day, but, I like it.

    Not to hijack the thread but admit it, how many of you have forgotten your watch and asked someone what time it was while you had the cell phone in the pocket? Maybe a sign that you're old?

    No, what makes me feel old is the aching joints, slowing metabolism, sagging skin and going outside in my pajamas to tell kids to get the **** off my lawn.

    I go for anything Casio G-Shock. My main watch I wear when riding is the Casio 5600E G-Shock. It's not analog but it's only $36 on Amazon, water resistant to 200M, tough as nails and it's not a big deal if something happens to it (it would take something fairly traumatic to break it).

    I have dressier watches for other things but my everyday watches are beaters.
