    There are probably 6 or 7 watches that have gotten about equal wrist time. I try to cycle through the hoard somewhat fairly. There's one that I acquired in Autumn and had to wait for servicing before it glommed onto my wrist for weeks, so I would have to make an exception for that....

    Citizen BM6400 - my touring watch, so it gets a week or two in a row when I'm traveling for work. Probably a month or so of wrist time last year.



    Tudor Black Bay Red ETA - voted most likely to jump the queue and hog my wrist out of rotation



    1973 GS "hi beat" - acquired in December 2018, and continues to astonish me with the precision of the dial. I actually crave wearing it.



    Nomos Ludwig - purchased used in 2011, for years it was my top watch. I still love it - the clarity of lines, the intelligent design language, the beautiful movement. I sometimes wish it didn't have a date, and that it was 38mm instead of 40mm, but it's still in my upper tier.



    And last of all, 1978 Rolex Air King (if I am to force the list to five only) the late September acquisition at an auction, followed by three weeks at the watch doctor's getting a full service. If I had this all year, it would easily be near the top of the list. It probably had 20 days of wrist time since late October.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Good idea for a thread. Unfortunately, I'm afraid my 'rotation' is so chaotic, I've no idea witch watch I worn the most...





    Edit: Wait a minute I remember, now: it was the Rolex Explorer II (16570)

    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Well, my top 5 watches would be my entire collection, so I'll just keep it to one and one runner up. Even without keeping track, it's clear which watch I've worn most this past year, and it's been the case since I got it.


    (Much like my Monaco on the gear lever, this is one of my favorite photos I've ever taken)



    For the first time, though, I think my runner up, and it was close, isn't the Speedmaster. It's its seafaring cousin, the Seamaster 300. Thanks to a lengthy vacation where it was the only watch I wore and some sports-related superstitions, the SM300 and its gorgeous retro design has shot up to second place for wrist time. My Speedmaster would be third.

    The GMT Master was the most worn watch of 2019 as it's my go-to travel watch and I travel a lot for work.



    The Ressence is probably second...I wore it a lot when I wasn't traveling



    Beyond these two...no clue

    My love for the Black Bay is well documented, but my god that Air King is gorgeous.

    Well, as usual, the G-Shock would be number one since it gets worn once a week during golf season.

    Second place would be my favorite domestic travel watch:

    After that, it gets tougher to figure out, although fourth might well be the one I tend to grab for fancy (or semi-fancy) outings:

    Thank you, Raza! At 34mm it's probably too small for most people these days, but I don't mind the size. I like that it was one of the simplest, most affordable watches they ever made.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.
