I'm sitting in the other camp - have many watches, but wear my favourite - a Seiko Chrono all the time - never take it off. Hot baths, showers, sea etc. Never let me down (yet). Accurate to I guess not what, but I just love it.

Haven't worn a watch in 40+ years as they (and jewelry of any kind) were a non-no working in a metrology lab and later around high voltages. I just got out of the habit of wearing one and I never had a watch that, no matter how well it kept time on the bench or bed stand, would not either noticeably gain or lose time or go nuts when I wore it. I had one wind-up I wore for a couple of months but kept smashing the crystal at an after school job, so it went in the drawer, too. Drives my wife crazy when I complain the clocks in the house are off by a minute or so while my clocks in the shop are accurate to microseconds...
