    What watch do you have and how much did it cost?

    Mine is the classic F-91W which nearly always costs £7. It has a stopwatch and an alarm clock (do your analog watches have that? No? Exactly.).
    Same! I've had this make for years but I find the straps snap after a while
    My absolute favourite is the Casio Ladies LA670WGA-1 in gold with the black face, it's so dreamy...

    I have a Bulova watch (sentimental piece from my dad) and I've worn it everyday for the last 7 years (oh gosh, has it been that long?)!!! It'll probably last another 30+ years, I'm hoping. It's from the Millennium line, and the black face doubles as a solar panel. I love it - the only complaint I have is that in the winter, when my watch is hidden under my sleeve all day or when there's just not that much sunlight out, my watch will stop every few days. I immediately put it under a light source and it starts up again! There's enough energy storage for last about a week without sunlight..

    Never needed a watch since getting a phone (no one even asks what the time is anymore either since everyone has a phone) which now makes me regret all the hundreds I've spent on all my michael kors watches

    Apple watch, I love paying for things with it, I feel like I'm in some sci-fi future world when I do.

    I used to wear a Moto360 but I ended up selling it for a small profit as I didn't use the "smart" functions enough.

    I now wear a Casio G-Shock (don't remember the model number). I don't really wear a watch at home though - only when I'm out and about.

    Vintage Rolex Submariner passed down for two generations, the price for a new one should be £6-7k.

    I have a Michael Kors one that my partner bought me last Christmas. I've got loads of cheap (mainly Lipsy) watches lying around the house but I generally wear them until the batteries run out and don't bother getting the batteries changed.
    This one however is well looked after and worn usually for best. It was bought for me after the second hand one I bought that cost me £85 turned out to be a dud This one cost £152 in the Goldsmiths sale (I chose it)

    I have a £974 watch and I don't know how to read the time. I have clocks everywhere in the house and I don't even use it. I don't know how to read time.

    Yes, but usually cheap (<£20) watches - most of the real expensive ones (>£100) don't do much more than a £50 (or so) watch would do.

    There is a limit as to how cheap you can go though, before the actual timekeeping skills become questionable. Go below £5 for a watch at your own risk.

    Real expensive ones are worth thousands not hundreds... actually, my friends and I would call "really expensive" only those that cost tens of thousands or even more, but that's relative to the Swiss made ("luxury") watches market.

    it's not only about function, but design, mechanism, story of the watchmaker and of the particular model, style, combination of potentially rare elements.
