I don't have any expensive watches, but my favorite and daily watch is an Invicta Pro Diver. Wicked deep blue lume if I've been in natural sunlight. Love it!.

When I was working, I would break my watch about once a month. It didn't take me long to realize that going cheap is the only way. Now that I'm retired, I have no use for a watch, and use my cell phone instead.

Stopped wearing mine when I first retired...felt weird not having it on and available, so I started wearing it again.

Had the one above for decades now...

Major wrist watch fan, collector and forum admin here. Just got a call 20 minutes ago that my Orient Saturation Diver is fixed and on it's way back to me. Love that particular Diver. Own everything from Rolex to Invicta. Have a Seiko 6309-7040 torn down next to me that I need to replace or at least clean the crystal in, but I have bought a crystal puller yet. My new Glock 19 has taken away from my wrist watch hobby time ;)

edit: btw that Luminox is a great tool watch. I still have yet to purchase a tube watch yet, but the tritium is a major cool factor.

I have a metal allergy that prevents me from wearing them, so I'm that guy who always ask what time it is. It's a great way to strike up a conversation with a total stranger though when you're waiting for something.

I don't know why more people don't just start talking to the people they are inline with.
Austin try a leather band that goes between the watch and wrist, the buckle also rests on leather.

If I can find one when I'm out I'll buy it and give it a try. I've gone my entire life without one, so if I start now it would be kinda weird.
Art had a good suggestion. You may also want to look into titanium watches. Many people that have skin allergies to steel are okay with titanium. IF you decide to look into this, make sure the case back is also titanium as some are stainless steel. good luck.
