A Movado, a Breit Ling, a Titan EDGE, an ESPRIT are my favs and most often used ones. Just love the Movado...

After seeing the lists mentioned by people... must say i am speechless...
my collection :

1) an HMT quartz watch.. my first watch recd in 1985.. still going strong.
2) A titan steel .. the only watch that i have purchased for myself... my bread n butter watch
3) A Casio
4) A citizen Eco drive
5) A Tissot Chronograph

and a legacy Favre Leuba ....

Over and above this i do have 5-6 of the regular titans... the black strapped/gold strapped/ silver-gold two tone versions etc....

Most of my watches until now have been Casios for a simple reason, I prefer functionality over looks. My previous watch (whose band broke) was Casio PC-Unite which looks like a normal watch but could be synchronised with Microsoft Outlook via IR port. I had my entire Outlook contact list in the watch...

Once I had a watch that measured temperature. Yeah, I am a gizmo nut.

about 3 months ago, where i live in the united states, there was this J.C Penny store, the franchise was closing or shifting, not sure. they had this big sale every thing 60-80% off.
i saw this really cool swiss army watch marked somewhere close to 250 dollars, and after the discount i was getting it for 80. when he had made the bill and everything, i checked the watch and it was not working... well the sales man told me he'll give me another 60% off if i still buy it. so i ended up getting it for 22 dollars inclusive tax. send it to the company, 10 dollars shipping... and tadda a brand new swis army worth close to 10,000 Rs for 1000 Rs
.....

Use following :

1) Titan classique.
2) Titan Insignia.
3) Casio sportswatch.

My favourite good old Titan classique with leather straps, which I use everyday. Insignia is only for functions, while Casio for outings, sports, trekking blah blah..

Haven't worn a watch for more than three years now. Never felt the need for it.
There's a clock in the car, one on the laptop, one in the phone and so on...
