I have worn many brands of watches, Elgin, Benrus, Waltham (my favorite many many many years ago), Seiko, Timex, Rolex, etc. I was always very rough on watches and they rarely lasted a year, which is why I have worn so many. I even carried pocket watches for a while. The last wristwatch I wore was a Timex Expedition. I had two of those in fact. And I keep that last one by the head of my bed for old times sake even though the battery ran out many years ago. But alas those days are long gone. I got dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century and my phone is my watch now.
