Normally I like to wear watches for chunks of time (like 5-7 days or longer) without taking them off. Two days ago, I got my first more dressy watch. I already have a scratch and a nick on one lug. I remember banging it on something, but don't remember what. It made me think, should I take it off in the evenings after work and put something else on? (This watch has no lume so no reason to wear to bed) Normally I don't mind scratches and dents but on a more dressy watch I am inclined to keep it as scratch free as possible.

What do you all do? Change watches when you get home from work or wear continuously for longer chunks of time?

I tend not to wear my dressy watches to bed, if that's what you're asking.

Yeah, I haven't been wearing this to bed either. No lume so what's the point. I guess I mean evening rather than night. Get home from work, pour yourself a bourbon and then change watches?

I wouldn't wear a watch--I've literally punched myself in my sleep before and my wife says I've hit her on occasion. Having some sort of bludgeoning item on the wrist wouldn't be the best move

I see, I just take my watches off once I get home.

Yea I usually change to a diver/field watch when I get home from the office... I have 12 watches, about half dress and half more casual. Dress is for work, casual for nights and weekends, unless it's a nice dinner out. I sleep with my watches too and most of my dress pieces are without lume

I take off when I get home also. Unless, I'm going out again later.

There's little reason to wear a watch throughout the night unless you are traveling, etc.

All my watches spend more time in storage than on my wrist, not sure why I need 5.

I take it off the second I'm in the door and put it on before I leave, even if I were to come home for 15 minutes, there's a good chance just out of habit I'd do that.

If I’m wearing a dress watch, once I get home it goes back in the watch box and I put on one of my EDW watches.

Thanks all. I think I am going to start taking it off when I get home as well. I never really thought about this before, but the way I bump watches on everything I think I need to take caution. I'll have to get a watch box, I suppose. Been putting it off because I don't want the wife to see all my watches in one place, heh. I started collecting less than a year ago and bought 5 watches since then.

Same here, except I don't sleep with a watch on. Dressy(ish) for work, casual after hours. I swap watches when I change out of my work clothes.

I wear my watches to bed - if they have lume. Otherwise, they come off. I will replace a watch without lume with one that has lume to wear to bed. I don't use an alarm clock, so I find it easier to just look at my watch. My body clock is pretty good at waking me up at the right time.

I dress my watch according to what I’m doing. I work in an office so I wear it there, then when I get home I keep it on unless I’m doing “hard” work outside, then I’m usually changing clothes too so the beater timex expedition goes on.

As far as wearing to bed, I never do. I try to figure out what position to lay my watches in at night to help them best self regulate and just do that over night. Plus it’s good to give the wrist some rest and air.

Overall.... do what you are comfortable with. If you are wearing a watch you don’t mind scuffs and scrapes on wear it.

I take my watch off when I get home from work but on the weekends I tend to leave whatever watch I'm wearing on all day - unless I change for some occasion.

I don't like to sleep in my watches just to give my wrist some breathing time but hey if yours comfortable sleeping in it then power to you.

I usually wear an Alpinist around the house. I like the lume & sapphire crystal, things which my dressier watches lack. (It also goes with my Green Bay Packers t-shirt).

Other times it's an old Vostok. If I'm doing any serious cooking, i wear a quartz beater.
