    What's your most worn watch?

    My first thread on IWL! Wooohooo!!!

    As the title says, what is the watch in your collection that sees the most wrist time? We all have a favorite or work watch that gets a bit more attention than the others.

    For me, it's my Marathon Navigator. Surprisingly, I wear this watch about 4 nights a week. I say ''nights'' as it's a watch that has been specifically purchase to perform a precise task. Which is to tell time if I wake up in the middle of the night or early morning. I work 4 days a week and hate to wake up at night without knowing how many hours of sleep I have left. The navigator is just perfect for that. It's super light, uses tritium for illumination (the best in the world!) and is just the perfect size for me. I simply cannot sleep with a big heavy watch on my wrist, so this little puppy comes handy and was a great purchase for me. Probably the only watch I've ever purchase for a specific purpose other than i like it and want it.

    The funny thing is, that even if it's not a favorite of mine, it's a nice military watch (with a crappy bezel, but...) that I have never worn outside the house. I should let her see the outside world once in a while After all, I had the original black Nato replaced by a nicer one so might as well show it!

    Your turn now!

    Probably my Breguet, so easy to throw it on when I'm going to work, since it matches with anything. But I keep a keen eye out for signs of jealousy from my other watches...

    Plus, it doesn't get worn on weekends.

    Not too small
    Good legibility in the dark

    That's my philosophy when it comes to women as well.

    I like what you did with this one. Of course i'm a bit biased, but I love that old Seamaster dial!
