I wear my SKX007J for 4 weeks at a time, then I have 2 weeks off from work and I wear different watches daily for the 2 weeks.
When I get home Tuesday first on the wrist will be my fresh from a mild restoration and cleaning 6105-8110 on a new seiko marine master strap:D

The longest period of time I wore a watch (Except my Casios which I wore 7-8 months when I was working on the ships) was 5 weeks 24 / 7 when I was accuracy testing my mil mod SKX173 which lost one second total!

Most of the time, I change a watch or two everyday.

Same watch many years? Yikes!

I only wear ONE watch all the time (except in bed/shower + I wear a Polar heart rate monitor cycle training).

I'm a watchmaker and have hundreds of watches:eek: but when I do one up I list it and don't want to mark it etc.

I wear a solar atomic G-Shock at work for accuracy and durability. After work I run the rest through the rotation. There are a few that run and should be serviced that I do not wear, I don't want to damage them because the movement oil has dried up.

I wore a 7A38 from 1984 to about 2009.

Since being corrupted by the evil SCWF I rotate every day.

Watch movements hardly ever wear (well, hardly ever Seiko/Citizen et al anyway) - even with dry oil. If you want to wear them occasionally - go for it:)

Probably few on this forum stick to just one.

Myself the rotation varies but only 1 gets worn when going to work. As a field based sales manager I wear it and no other exclusively when on sales calls.

I did have only one watch from 1990 to about 2000-ish, an H601- Ani-Digi dress model. Still wear it every now and then.

I used to rotate between 5 or 6. Now I use an Orient Star for work and going out and an Alpinist for the weekend.

Not me. If I only wore one all the time I would simply sell the rest rather than let them stay in the watch box. My collection usually hovers between 12 & 18 in number and I wear them all in rotation. If anything finds itself not getting worn it usually doesn't make it very long before it gets a new home.

I wore my 7T32 for years straight when I couldn't afford to have Seiko change the batteries in all my other watches.

Now, things are better, thank God, and I've figured out how to change the batteries.

Lots more watches now so I wear each watch for a week straight then move on in the rotation.

I never even wore a watch until two years ago, though I owned two. Now I feel naked without one, and wear at least two different ones a day.
