    Watches at Bedtime

    Okay, so I know there's been some heated watch discussions lately, and I hope I don't add fuel to the fire...

    Question: do you wear your watch to sleep, or do you take it off? I know it's probably a silly question, and that there is no right answer -- it's whatever you're comfortable with -- but I'm genuinely curious.

    My dad taught me to always take it off at night (but he also taught me never to sleep in hooded sweatshirts, either, because he was afraid my siblings and I might get all caught up in our sleep), and I've noticed, though, that he's guilty of not practicing what he preaches. It could be old age, but, like I said, I'm just curious.

      Waaaaay back in the day, I used to shower with my watch on. But that was a Casio G-Shock. One my Tissots (which I had bought on a whim and wasn't at all into caring about what I was dressing like) I beat up pretty bad by never taking it off, either; gym, shower, etc. This was all circa 2007-2008ish. Now that I think about that, I must have looked ridiculous wearing that watch at the gym.

      Now, definitely take it off when I go to sleep...and *ahem* all other activities that may involve my bed/bedroom/bathroom other than getting ready for the day.

          I take my watch off in the shower by default -- since I don't wear it to bed -- in the morning, but then intentionally if I shower at some other point. I have two that I rotate between: my dad's auto that he handed down (so I don't want to risk it), and a beater that says 100m resistance, but I have my doubts (plus it has a leather strap)

            I don't sleep with my watch on. I shower on the am so I don't usually shower with it either. Comfort for me

              I only sleep with one on if I forget to take it off; I don't see too much sense in risking accidentally hitting it on something while asleep or groggy waking up, and don't see much upside to wearing it if you have a bedside alarm or other clock. It also gives my wrist a chance to rest/breathe as well.

              I only shower with one on if I'm at a gym, outdoor shower or other place where I wouldn't want it walking off without me. At that point, it's either my g-shock or dive watch, so I don't worry too much about either.

                    There's a joke in here about needing a 12-hour chrono, but I just can't find it.

                      i think only commies and nihilists must wear a watch to bed.

                      on top of all the discomfort, what about the TICK TICK TICK yikes. i don't want that coming for me under my pillow in the middle of the night!


                      I always wear my gym watch in the shower so I am not late to work, and so I can wash all the gym-yuck off of it. it's some casio plastic diver, whiteface thingy. not worried if it gets flooded.

                              I wear my watch to bed. I'm very nearsighted, and if I wake up in the middle of the night it's a LOT easier to look at my watch to see the time than it is to fumble around and find my alarm clock and hold it up to my face.

                              My standard "sleeping" watch is a Timex dive-style watch with a rubber strap. It's super comfortable, the ticking is really quiet (unlike my Weekender) and the watch has the Indiglo feature so it's very readable in pitch blackness. My Orient Ray also works well as a night watch as it's very comfortable (currently on a Bond-stripe NATO) and has good lume that is very readable after many hours of darkness.
