Ive always wondered about what kind of watches my counterparts wore since Im a one man show at my job. I wear a bunch of different watches depending on my moods lol.Sometimes I wear a Seiko Diver or a Steinhart Pilot or my many G-Shocks. What kind of watch do you wear as a IT Pro at work.

I wear my entire collection at work except for my Rolex Explorer. 4 out of 5 days I am wearing a vintage watch. The only time I remove my watch is when I am replacing motherboards on a server or hard drives in the desktops.

Depends on if I am going to a client site.

I wear my Tag Heuer Link Calibre S a lot, or sometimes my Obaku Harmony on mesh bracelet - as a consultant, it sometimes isn't good to appear like you are too expensive :)

At home, I am wearing my new 'Speediorite' :)

IT guy here too... my simple answer: Anything and everything you see listed in my signature. Just depends on what day it is and what I feel like putting on. However, when I start having to deal with hardware or digging in computer cases, I have a special little padded spot in my desk for my watch to go :-d.

My buddy that works in IT wears this one most of the time:


I do notice significantly more 'tech watches' among IT guys, than say management.

Our IT guy here wears a Citizen chrono from the 90s.

Our melbourne IT guy collects Rolexes, and last I heard has bought himself a Daytona. I think the pay is better in Melbourne...

My new
Citizen Skyhawk AT (GMT dial handy, so is slide rule)
replaced my
Seiko Cal 7T62 (2 years)
which replaced an old analog/digital Pulsar that I wore for 15 years (no slide rule but chronograph)

In winter I carry a 1913 Hamilton in my watch pocket if I have one

I keep a double ended alligator clip jumper in the tool box with a 1Meg resistor in series - one end goes on the watch band and the other goes to chassis. Never take the watch off. Looks like it too.

My IT guy at work is the other WIS in my company. He's got a bunch of vintage pieces, among them a GMT-Master, a Doxa, and a 6309 Seiko.

I wear the Jaeger when I'm dealing with management or clients.

I have a suite of "nerd watches" when with my IT crew: Fortis IQ, Nixie Watch, Casio Edifice, Citizen Chronograph AT.

I've got 24 watches that include an Oris Complication Big Crown, Sandoz handwind (1950), two Omega Constellation F300hz, Pulsar PSR 10, Titoni Sportster, two Omega Seamaster, Bulova Gemini, Steinhart Ocean GMT, Seiko King Quartz and wear them all.

And I'm on the IT side of the shop.

I'm a consultant in software QA, more specifically testing. I am currently on a long term assignment as a Loadrunner specialist with a government agency.

I usually wear divers or pilots at work and at home. For me, the SKX007 on the jubilee bracelet is dressy enough for wearing with a costume. But that's a culture thing I believe. I nearly always wear jeans at work.
