Kind of jealous of all the really gorgeous wrist wear being posted here. I can't wear a watch, or any metal jewelry. I break out in a really painful rash that only allows me to wear non alloys. My daily wear wedding band is silicone as are the tunnels in my ear lobes. I do have a tungsten wedding band with Koa inlay that I wear when I need to be fancy but any type of stainless etc gives me fits
Maybe consider the Nerd watch :D

For most of my adult life I have worn either a cheap Mickey Mouse watch or a Timex Triathlon. I would wear a nylon band with the watch. About 15 years ago, someone - my sister maybe - convinced me it was time to get a "grownup" watch. I claim this may have been a conspiracy between my wife and my sister, but that is water under the bridge. It is a a Seiko Titanium.

I have been wearing it since. Due to some weight loss, it has had two (maybe three) links removed.

My first automatic watch was a Seiko orange monster my kids gave me as a gift, I wore that watch out. It got me started on the watch bug, and I’ve been through a few watches since. What I have presently is a G Shock pilot watch I wear to work most days, a Seiko Turtle on a super jubilee bracelet, and my dress watch is a Hamilton Jazzmaster Cushion on bracelet.

@Mr Beardsley How about bronze?
Bronze and copper really raise hell with my skin. Makes the rest of them look like a walk in the park
Maybe consider the nerd watch ... no metal :D

Swatch. Since the 80s, it's always been Swatch. YMMV.
