Watches - do you wear one and which one(s)?

Been a watch guy my whole life. Started with digitals as a kid and now only into mechanicals.

Have a Rolex GMT Master 2 on my radar for my next watch.... and then I feel my collection will be complete for quite some time.

These are my 3 daily wearers:

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Chrono

Omega Speedmaster Professional

And dress watch for those types of occasions
Seiko Cocktail Time

I'm also getting into collecting mechanical watches, albeit i'm still young and don't quite have the capital to buy high end watches.

However, I do own 2,

1) Hamilton Jazzmaster viewmatic (automatic ETA 2824-2 movement)

2) I have a quartz one as well, not mechanical but I love it for its minimalistic look. This one is Movado Museum sport

both are pics from the internet, but this is how they look.

Next on my watchlist is Tissot and hopefully Omega down the years

A vevet monkey in Zambia stole my Breitling Superocean (shiny gold bits regrettably) in 2002 and after a few weeks of freedom I stopped wearing watches. That monkey may have added a decade to my life as I used to be a bit OCD about the time.

I keep one of these in a neon gas preservation tube back home.
Omega Speedmaster Ref. 145.012 for $7,422 for sale from a Trusted Seller on Chrono24

Apollo moon program flight watch (1967 pre-landing model) willed to me by a family friend who worked at NASA.

Edit: I found an example of the monkey purloined piece.. I hate that monkey. It really was nice http://www.ebay.com/itm/BREITLING-Superocean-K10040-18K-1000M-Limited-Edition-Dive-Watch-MINT-/282014221435

Solid choice on the Omega!

I wear a manual wind Speedmaster which cues my routine to start the daily prep. I've conditioned myself in a Palovian sense. =) I also use the timer function to help me get an objective perspective of time to realize that I may not have given a trade enough time to develop, just psychologically because 1 minute can seem like an eternity if I'm sitting there reading the time and sales log.

Interesting observation, I rather find time to go quite quicker and I often end up realizing several hours have passed by when it really felt like I'm only an hour in!

I like watches but I don't wear one. If I were using one it would be a wood watch.

Fun fact: John Meyer is a watch aficionado with a 6 million dollars collection.
