What's on Your Wrist?

Patrick Rhone (of Rhoneisms) wears a Timex

Rick Georges (of FutureLawyer) wears the Samsung Galaxy SmartWatch.

I wear a Seiko (shown above). 

That's all riveting, of course, but have you noticed the number of young people who, because of smart phones, aren't wearing watches at all?

Relying solely on a phone strikes me as the modern-day equivalent of using a pocket watch, but I may be wrong. 

Ruling out the realm of ridiculously expensive watches, does wearing (or not wearing) a watch make a statement? If so, what does it say?

I am by no means young but I have not worn a watch in decades. I used to enjoy the look, but I now use the phone exclusively. So I guess I have gone the pocket watch route.

Decades? You were way ahead of the times.

Confession: I regard my watch as a trusted ally and my phone as a part-time adversary.
