What kind of watch do you have?

When I want to know what time it is I look at my cell phone, the clock on the wall at work, or the clock on my dresser. If you have a watch what kind is it, not the brand name,  just describe it.

Bonus Question: Does your child know how to tell time?

I don't have a watch. If I did it would be digital, and it would be black so it could go with everything.

Bonus Question:

My second grader is learning to tell time on an analog clock. My tween and teen can tell time, my youngest son can not tell time.

 I have a little keychain one I hook onto my jeans beltloop. I love it- if I'm somewhere w/ lousy cell phone reception and no clock handy (like Walmart), I can still know what time it is : )

Both boys can tell time on a digital and analog clock. Dd can read a digital, and is learning how to read analog.

That sounds convenient.  More handy than getting your cell phone out of your purse or pocket.

I also use my phone. My 3 older kids (10, 9 and 6) can tell time, my 5 year old is still figuring out the minutes, but she can do the hour. We've never used a digital clock as our main clock in the house so they caught on really fast.

I'm old school and I like wearing wristwatches. Though it has to be with a leather band as metal bands give me a rash. When I was little, I thought it was a very grown-up thing to have. The (analog) watch I'm wearing right now is round, easy-to-read face, black hands, distinctive red seconds hand, black leather wristband. Our second-grader is currently learning to tell time.

My cell is my watch, haha. My oldest, who is 6, can tell both analog and digital time. My youngest, who is 3 (almost 4), can tell digital time only.

I wonder what the statistics are on watch sales. It probably goes down every year and started when many people started buying cell phones.

Mine is a rotary dial with regular (not roman) numerals.

It's kind of small and water-resistant. My oldest can pretty much tell time with it, but my 3 and 5 year old, no. 

I look at it 1 million times a day and it's been broken for months and I get a new one on Friday for my birthday. If I find myself where there is no wall clock (sunday school room, church, grocery store, walking/running before pickup at preschool) and without a cell phone or it's out of power, I need a watch. That happens several times a day. I don't have my cell phone with me a lot.
